I’m back for 2023! I am delighted to announce that Kate Raffin and I will be hosting two Ongo programs next year starting in February.
12 week Ongo: Everyday Nonviolence online program – a practical, doable guide if you want:
Through the cultivation of mindfulness and the practice of nonviolent communication, this 12 week online program, Ongo, offers practical exercises and teachings that are applicable at home, in business meetings, leadership development, special interest groups etc.
We will be using the online platform, Zoom, for the weekly guided group sessions. You will also ‘buddy’ up with a partner once a week, online or over the phone, to do a guided practice (from the Ongo book) that can take approximately 30-60 minutes. There are also solo practices to do most days – sometimes as simple as reading a quote and reflecting upon it to doing a journal exercise that might take 30 minutes. While it is understood you may not be able to make it to each session, it is important to read the weekly group practice as each one forms a foundational step for the next week.
The program is concise and clear and comes from this comprehensive book written by Catherine Cadden and Jesse Wiens. It is designed to foster a ‘leader full’ community.
This program is offered freely. Donations are welcome. (We offer a contribution to the authors from all proceeds)
“Ongo” is short for “ongoing” – we understand that peace, compassion, and wisdom are ongoing practices in one’s life, not things that one just “gets”. In that spirit, we will be supporting one another to practice in our daily lives.
