    Join us for an overview of Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation at 4pm ET / 3pm CT / 1pm PT on May 23rd, 2022. Kingian Nonviolence is an approach to conflict and community leadership that offers values and methods useful for anyone who wants to use conflict constructively in your personal life, in group settings, or in community issues and building a reconciled world.

    This 2 Hour webinar covers:

    • The 4 pillars of Kingian Nonviolence

    • Initial introduction to the 6 Principles and 6 Steps - the “Will” and the “Skill” of Kingian Nonviolence.

    • The Social Dynamics of Kingian Nonviolence 

    This training will be co-facilitated by Mary Quigley from Indiana and Jonathon Jones from New York.


    Mary Quigley is a Kingian Nonviolence Level 1 Facilitator who received her KNV Intro from Alive Community Outreach, her KNV Core Training from University of Rhode Island Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies, and her KNV Level 1 Certification from On Earth Peace. Mary is a mom, teacher, writer and activist. She also has other interests including music, painting, theology, history and science.                                   


    Jonathon Jones grew up in Rochester, NY and learned deeply about nonviolence in many forms while incarcerated, including becoming a facilitator with the Alternative to Violence Project, Inc. After his release from prison, he continued his personal commitment to nonviolence by studying Kingian Nonviolence through the Rhode Island program and a 4 month certification program with On Earth Peace. He is currently learning with others teaching Kingian Nonviolence on zoom and in-person in front of a variety of different people and communities.

    Meet others interested in Kingian Nonviolence, build Beloved Community, and connect with On Earth Peace's Kingian Nonviolence Learning Action Community!

    Into the HEARTland: Song and Story Fest | July 3-9, Eldora, IA

    A unique Family Camp featuring Brethren musicians and
    storytellers exploring and healing what divides us!

    As we enter the Heartland of the country, let us draw together to sing, tell stories, dance,
    listen, and share with one another. We are living in a world that is divided: by ideas,
    identities, loyalties, the places we live, learn, and worship. We will examine our own
    hearts and thinking, and work to get to the heart of these divisions, exploring how we
    might come together and heal our communities, each other, and ourselves.
    Like last year, we’ll be gathering and eating outside with dispersed sleeping arrangements,
    but at least we’ll be face-to-face!  Except for children under 5, we’re asking that everyone
    be fully vaccinated and boosted before the Fest.  And bring your masks for when we are
    inside and closer together.  Otherwise, we expect a more or less normal Fest.
       So, Come! Take some time to tell your stories, to speak from the heart, celebrating
    our journeys and those who have passed on.  At the Fest, through music, stories, and
    community, we open ourselves to the holy so that our life and work move more in time
    with the energizing Spirit of Life, to heal what divides us and open our hearts in love.


    Join us for this 26th annual Song & Story Fest in the HEARTland!

    Recharge and refresh with us at Camp Pine Lake!
