Peace Paradigm Radio for the week of December 27

A great nonviolent warrior of our world was Jesus, whose birthday was celebrated on the 25th of December. In this special episode of Peace Paradigm Radio, we explore the nonviolence of Jesus through the lens of the theory of scapegoating and mimetic desire, two key aspects of the work of Stanford theorist Rene Girard whose research radically changed the way we understand how cultures form. We welcome Suzanne Ross from …See More

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
The mission of the Metta Center is to promote the transition to a nonviolent future by making the logic, history, and yet-unexplored potential of principled nonviolence available to activists and agents of cultural change (which ultimately includes all of us). We help practitioners use nonviolence more safely and effectively, and anyone interested to understand and articulate it more fully.

Humanity is slowly but steadily awakening to the underlying truth of our existence, which is our fundamental unity with one another and all of life. In this “new” vision, supported alike by the ancient wisdom traditions of virtually all cultures and by breakthroughs in very modern science, nonviolence is the norm for all relationships just as violence was acceptable and all but normalized in the vision of the world as separate, material, and without overall meaning. Nonviolence is, as Gandhi said, “not the inanity it has been taken for down the ages.” It is thus both a consequence and an ennabling factor in this great awakening. It is no coincidence that nonviolence is increasing both quantitatively — with more than one-half of the world’s population experiencing a major manifestation in their home country — and qualitatively — with new forms of experimentation and learning across cultures increasingly practiced. Metta is proud to play a key role in developing this central part of the “great turning” to a more humane world.
