At the heart of nonviolence is a call for renewal of our bodies, minds and spirits, powerfully connecting our lives with the cycles of Nature and with the Earth. It is also a call to reconnect with one another: to vision, to reflect, and allow ourselves to heal as we explore our work as mothers, sisters, friends and co-creators of a nonviolent world.This weekend retreat is an invitation to renewal, restoration and re-connecting.It will include periods of rest and silence, discussion and…See More
How many times have you heard someone say, where do we go from here? ROADMAP just might be an answer.

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.
