Event Description

Practicing a spirituality of nonviolence has often been portrayed in the lives of extraordinary, spiritual leaders who considered themselves ordinary people: Rosa Parks, Gandhi, Malala Yousafzai, Dennis Banks, Martin Luther King, Wangari Matthai … These icons of peace echo a lifelong invitation to us—to teach ourselves how to live nonviolently in widening circles that build communities of peace. Join Prairiewoods and facilitator Ann Jackson, PBVM, for these four sessions via Zoom (March 9–30). We will meditate, reflect, discuss and enact spiritual practices to learn to extend nonviolence toward self, nonviolence toward all others, and participation in global, grassroots movements of nonviolence. Each session will offer reflection, silent meditation, spiritual practices and conversation to illumine how we may deepen our conviction to live peace. The cost is $20 per session or $75 for the four-week series if paid in advance. For more information or to register for the Zoom link, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
