Nonviolence is a celebration of life
Nonviolence celebrates the beauty and diversity of life. We learn and grow together as we seek peace and work for justice.
In this shared struggle, we find great joy not only in the eventual outcome but in the process itself.
We cultivate a sense of awe and wonder at the beauty of creation. We seek to find small things to celebrate even as we directly, boldly, and without compromise face difficult challenges.
“Many people want their ethical commitments to social justice, peace, and ecological sanity to connect with achieving a life that is suffused with love, generosity, kindness, and awe, wonder & radical amazement at the grandeur and mystery of the universe and all being.”
-Rabbi Michael Lerner
