A Season for Nonviolence
Unity Center for Spiritual Growth participates in the international observance of Athe Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence, January 30 – April 4, which are the dates of the assassinations of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., respectively. We have many offerings for you to participate in. Use the links below for more information about each event.
The Season is an international, educational, media and grassroots campaign dedicated to promoting nonviolence as a powerful way to heal, transform and empower our lives and our communities. The Season for Nonviolence began in 1998, inspired by the 50th and 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This international movement strives to honor the vision of these great peacemakers through action and education.
Each day, during these 64 Days of Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence, we practice a new principle of peace and nonviolence from Gandhi’s spiritual legacy. Through his written reflections and his public pronouncements he teaches us to live a life of nonviolence, one choice at a time, one action at a time, one day at a time. This is how we learn to practice nonviolence. Whatever our spiritual paths may be, Gandhi’s words can guide us to a more meaningful practice of Ahimsa (nonviolence). If we practice it for the full 64 Days, Gandhi’s “quality of the heart” can become our quality of the heart and can change our lives and the world we are co-creating.
