Exploring the Gandhi-King Season for Non-Violence
~ 64 Days to Practice Weaving Love & Wise Action Into Daily Life ~
An evening with Kenn Burrows, an educator and consultant for over thirty years, teaching Holistic Health Studies at San Francisco State University. He is founder and Director of The Holistic Health Learning Center, a unique interdisciplinary library and community action center integrating personal, social, and environmental aspects of health. Since 2001, he has organized the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence – a 64-day (1/30-4/4) educational campaign demonstrating that nonviolence can empower our personal and collective lives.
Gandhi believed in the power of truth and possibility – that a person of conscience could awaken others by refusing to go along with existing injustice while pointing out more just and workable alternatives. Dr. Martin Luther King applied Gandhian principles as a civil rights activist. Framed by the memorial anniversaries of these two great leaders, this annual cross-cultural event creates a focused time to explore how shared values and common goodness can support people of all faiths and political parties moving toward a more just and sustainable future.
