Love Warriors Basic Training Course
The Love Warriors Basic Training Course provides you with the basic knowledge and skills needed for being an agent of non-violent social change. Gathering from the work of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the field of social psychology and human development, you will be empowered to enter into the full use of your gifts as an agent of Peace and Love in the world.
With the proper foundation of non-violent philosophy, along with the tools for non-violence and peaceful conflict resolution, we can take our first steps in waging a “war” for peace. A war, not fought with guns or bombs, but a war won through deep listening with the purpose of understanding, with an eye toward the greater good of the all. Here compassion and union are our guides while ignorance and separation fall away.
