Reinvigorate nonviolence through an immersive experience with India’s culture


 

Our Movement

 

Our Inspiration

Nearly sixty years ago when there was violence in America, Rev Martin Luther King Jr. had taken a five week journey to India in 1959 to deepen his understanding of the nonviolence teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. 

 
I left India more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to people in their struggle for freedom and human dignity. As a result of the trip, my understanding of nonviolence is greater and my commitment deeper.
— -Rev Martin Luther King Jr.

Our Approach

Supporting leaders to reinvigorate nonviolence from 'inspiration' to 'implementation'

PHASE 1

Immersion and Inspiration

Participants travel across India to study India's ancient culture & wisdom of nonviolence. We also offer customized nonviolence training workshops in USA.

PHASE 2

Insights and Implementation

Participants develop insights and implement new ideas that will promote
compassion and nonviolence in their communities and neighborhoods.

PHASE 3

Monitor and Measure

Participants are supported to develop key metrics for measuring social impact and communicate the stories of social change.


Our Impact

Thus far, we have hosted several civic leaders from America including Mayors, police officers, victims of violence, social activists and former gang members. Their testimonials inspire us to continue our mission.

“I am going back from India, with such deep knowledge about the self. The meditation exercises have helped me release negative thoughts. There is an inner strength inside us.
We need to cultivate that.”
