Upcoming Workshops - Non-Violent Peace Force: San Diego

You are invited to participate in a one-day Nonviolence Conflict Intervention (NCI) Training, 12 April 2008, offered by Nonviolent Peaceforce San Diego.

LEARN HOW.........

The Nonviolent Conflict Intervention Training lets you explore how nonviolent methods can lessen or prevent conflict-in your daily life, in your community, and around the world.

The one-day workshop is filled with hands-on exercises and role plays that will introduce you to:

  • Basic nonviolent communication and conflict resolution methods

  • How you can use these skills when you come across conflict in your daily life

  • How local and international peace teams use nonviolent strategies in larger conflicts

The curriculum was developed by Nonviolent Peaceforce North America. Your trainers are professional nonviolent conflict intervention trainers.

We believe that basic training in Nonviolent Conflict Intervention (NCI) should be as common as training in CPR. If someone has a heart attack, CPR can keep that person alive until the underlying cause of the attack can be addressed.

NCI allows an individual, a relationship or a community to survive without physical or emotional injury until the underlying cause of the conflict can be resolved.

This workshop will introduce techniques you can use when faced with a conflict that might turn nasty or violent. By defusing the immediate situation, you create a space which gives everyone time to understand the root of the conflict and to resolve it in a peaceful way.

BEGIN NOW........
The Nonviolent Conflict Intervention Training is open to everyone. The cost for the workshop is $25. The workshop fee covers site expenses, training materials, printing, and snacks. Any money left over will be donated to Nonviolent Peaceforce to support the expansion of training programs.

The training is a full day. We ask that participants commit to staying the entire day.

Space is limited to 12 people.

Please RSVP to register for the April 12, 2008 workshop, please contact Carol Boone (619) 697-3223 or e-mail her at and arrange for payment.

Carol can also put you on a list to receive information about future trainings and the quarterly newsletter for Nonviolent Peaceforce San Diego.

This is a very important meeting. Please attend.

Note: Non-Violent does not mean non-confrontational. Using organization, strategy, and discipline you can escalate conflict and gain sympathy for a just cause. Come and learn how to leverage your commitment, courage, and unity to overcome the most powerful adversary. You can not wait for someone else, you can not wait for government, you must do it.

If you can't make this training try the next: May 24, or June 21.

Watch "A Force More Powerful" - and learn the ways of true warriors.
