Armistice Day 100th Anniversary Workshop

Peace Congress Logo

The Armistice Anniversary Weekend Workshop will be a four-day immersion in unleashing Courage and Compassion. These powerful vibrations exist in all of us and are accessed by Sacred Activists in order to achieve just and fair resolutions. Mahatma Gandhi called these powers satyagraha – the energy that allows us to advance justice with mercy and “Speak Truth to Power.” With satyagraha, we find the inner strength and moral fortitude needed to rise in support of the highest attainable vision through the use of nonviolent methods of political resistance.

The Workshop will start at the Oracle Campus with one day of Sacred Activist training. We will then travel to the Nation’s Capital to join with more than 200 peace organizations that are contributing to the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, including a Peace Congress on Saturday and a Veteran led March on Sunday. All the while, we will celebrate with Catharsis on the Mall, the east coast version of Burning Man and perfect progressive backdrop to our weekend activities. This workshop is for anyone who desires social democracy to survive and thrive during this dark era of the Trump Administration.

NOTE: You are welcome to attend just the PEACE CONGRESS on 11/10/2018 by registering HERE

***** The requested minimum donation for the Peace Congress is $10 (payable at the door and includes box lunch) *****
