Cultures of Peace and Justice
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nadine brings a bold, vital message that peace is possible and essential for us all.
Nadine has worked with thousands of people, primarily in the U.S. and Asia, to recover from extreme violence and create peaceful, nonviolent communities. Over decades she has seen whole communities shift from despair, revenge and hatred to enthusiasm, confidence and genuine love for themselves and others, even reaching out to include people they formerly considered enemies.
Together they identified tools that have worked across diverse cultures, languages and religions. They witnessed astonishing transformations of violent, destructive communities into peaceful, productive ones. Nadine shares these simple, practical tools grounded in historic Quaker peace work while continuing to incorporate new learning.
Nadine grew up in the Appalachian foothills with a holistic, resourceful approach to life and work, placing her faith in the power of the Living Spirit to allow love and conscience to guide her life. She coaches community leaders, offers workshops, trains facilitators and documents practices that have worked for many.
