In addition to public offerings, the Gandhi Institute offers learning experiences to groups of all kinds on a donation basis. We adjust the length and content of our offerings to best serve the groups with whom we work:
Two-hour workshop on one of the following: Rev. Martin Luther King’s nonviolence theory, Nonviolent Communication, Talking Circles, conflict resolution skills.
Half-day workshop: (single or multiple sessions) which includes King’s nonviolence theory and conflict resolution skills.
Full-day workshop: (single or multiple sessions) Day-long workshops are designed to introduce the principles and practices of nonviolence through experiential activities and group-based learning. Gandhi Institute staff and volunteers will lead exercises and present on topics that relate to current issues in participants’ lives. Participants will learn how to transform personal and social conflicts; develop techniques and strategies in nonviolent social resistance; be exposed to different forms of meditation; participate in a Talking Circle; and become familiar with the life and teachings of M.K. Gandhi and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Learning how to communicate and adjusting to everyone’s style is one of the hardest parts to accomplish in [my] organization. It’s often easier to communicate with students and families than it is with each other. [From this workshop] I gained some skills I can immediately apply to interactions with customers, staff, and other employees.”
