It began on January 30 (the anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi) and ends on April 4 (the anniversaryon the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.).
Violence often errupts from anger, so do we need to understand anger if we are going to live without violence?
Is anger bad?
Can anger be useful inn a positive way
What is the highest and best thing to do when you get angry?
Dr. Maisha Hazzard continues Khepra's participation in the SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE: a 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This weekend marks 50 years since the violent crackdown on peaceful marchers in Selma, Alabama. March 7, 1965, became known as "Bloody Sunday". We commemorate this demonstration of Nonviolent Direct Action for social justice by continuing to talk about awakening within us what Gandhi called Satyagrapha -- Soul Force or Truth Force.
There are three foundation stones for Self Mastery in Nonviolent Direct Action: Spiritual Intelligence, Emotional Intelligence, and Strategic Intuition and Intelligence.
Today we focus on SELF MASTERY AND NONVIOLENCE
Yale psychologist Peter Salovey, maps the ways in which we can bring Intelligence and Self Mastery to our emotions in challenging situations:
1. Knowing one's emotions.
2. Managing emotions.
3. Motivating oneself.
4. Recognizing emotions in others.
5. Handling relationships.
I am privileged to be a member of the Summit Council of the INTERnational Week for Nonviolence, which will be held 16th-23rd August 2014.
If you are organising an event during that week, please post the details in the comments section below. I shall list as many of these events as I can on the Master Calendar, which will help you get publicity.
I have also posted some NVC events - not just events for that week – here.
One of my guests on my recent show about Black parents and nonviolence was saying, "You CAN'T teach young people nonviolence because they have to fight”.
This got me thinking about the first time I met Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication. I asked him about his work with Black gang leaders.
I am also inspired by the example of Malcolm X. He was alienated and disaffected, and he became involved in petty crime and ended up in prison. But the right support and encouragement, and given the right inspiration, he became a leader.
Help me celebrate the Week for Nonviolence this coming August.
I have written about Nonviolent Communication in Success Strategies for Black People and my new ebook, Affirmations for Parents.
There are so many, many incidents of violence happening all around us, every day, all the time. Terrible, terrible things. Mindless violence.
Every time someone is stabbed or shot, every time violence is inflicted on someone, it affects all of us. It affects each and every one of us.
We must protect ourselves and our children. We must end the violence.
I wrote about Nonviolent Communication, NVC, in Success Strategies for Black People and in my new ebook, Affirmations for Parents.

We continue to participate in the SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE: a 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
TODAY'S PROGRAM, "Fear and the Nonviolent Soul", focuses on one of Mahatma Gandhi's "key characteristics of the nonviolent soul" which is FEARLESSNESS. In 1928, Gandhi wrote "Satyagraha in South Africa" in which he defines the inner force that a nonviolent activist must cultivate: SATYAGRAHA ( Sanskrit and Hindi: “holding onto truth”). Satyagraha is inner strength or “soul force” that is grounded in the universal Truth that all humans are endowed with the absolute right to freedom, justice, peace, and life sustaining provisions.
A satyagrahi bids goodbye to fear. Gandhi, M.K.~"Satyagraha in South Africa" 1928
The Satyagrahi’s object is to convert, not to coerce, the wrong-doer.~Gandhi, M.K. “Requisite Qualifications” Harijan 25 March 1939
"We can learn to let fears be our teachers and when we accept, or even embrace, a fear and let ourselves learn what we have to learn from it, it has less control over us.The more I am able to be with my fears, the more freedom I have to do what my heart is calling me to do.~Linda Sartor, in Turning Fear into Power
MAJID RAFIZADEH will be my guest this week on Stand For Truth Radio. With everything that’s been in the news lately about Iran, I wanted to go to the expert who knows about the Middle East, including, Iran, ISIS, how women are impacted in Iran and much more.
Rafizadeh is an American political scientist, scholar at Harvard University, policy analyst, author, expert and commentator on U.S. foreign policy and Middle East. Rafizadeh is president and director of the International American Council on the Middle East and serves on the board of the Harvard International Review. He is originally from the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria. He is a member of the Gulf 2000 Middle East Project of the Columbia University School of International and Pubic Affairs and served as a senior fellow at Nonviolence International. He is also a journalist and human rights activist.
Rafizadeh is frequently called upon to brief U.S., EU and Asian officials about U.S. foreign policy and Middle Eastern affairs. He has taught at several universities such as the University of California, Santa Barbara through a Fulbright Teaching scholarship, has been a recipient of several fellowships and scholarships including from Oxford University, Annenberg, and the University of Santa Barbara. His analysis and research are regularly used to brief various institutions and parliaments including the UK Parliament. Previously, he worked at the United Nations, International Committee for the Red Cross, and conducted research at Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and council on U.S.- Arab Relations.
As a political scientist and scholar, Rafizadeh regularly appears on national and international outlets including CNN, BBC World TV and Radio, ABC, Aljazeera, Fox News, CTV, RT, CCTV America, Skynews, CTV and France 24 International, to name a few.
This weeks show will be about the formation of new groups that wish to be a part of building a nation for African Americans. The PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT has gained momentum over the last 30 years. From the time Malcolm, El Haji Malik Shabazz started the mirror image of the Organization of African Unity, the Organization of Afro-American Unity, the support is overwhelming that is given by the Africans who live in America. After leaving the Nation of Islam El Haji put all of his influence over the Nationalist and the Muslims who followed him to form the Organization of Afro-American Unity. His words and Ideas still ring true, and no matter what has been said or done to our Beloved Leader we continue the struggle. These were his words to us on June 8, 1964 three moths after leaving. "So it was our intention to try and find out what it was our African brothers were doing to get results, so that you and I could study what they had done and perhaps gain from that study or benefit from their experiences. And my traveling over there was designed to help to find out how. " If we do not go to Africa and study how they have achieved their results, the only way we can build a nation is to study Nation building. It is illogical to declare you a Nationalist if you are ignoring these facts. Should we continue the Movement by reviving the OAAU "Barely a month after his selection, Mr. Carmichael, then just 25, raised the call for black power, thereby signaling a crossroads in the civil rights struggle. Increasingly uncomfortable with Dr. King's resolute nonviolence, he sensed a shift among some younger blacks in the direction of black separatism. Many were listening sympathetically to the urgings of Malcolm X, who had been assassinated a year and a half earlier, that the struggle should be carried out by any means necessary."

We have been participating in the SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE: a 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Suddenly, I realized that I don't want a season for nonviolence; I WANT A SEASON OF PEACE -- A SEASON OF LOVE -- A SEASON FOR A NEW VISION.
