Understanding us as a people
These practices function as an interdependent ecology that form self-referential cycles: transformed individuals transform communities that transform societies that in return transform individuals. Such ecological systems, using their outputs as inputs, are regenerative.
We build on knowledge from many generations to support future generations: Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP), Re-evaluation Counseling (RC), civil rights and peace movements, Quaker practice, and new knowledge about trauma and breaking cycles of oppression. We understand the effective sequencing of practices for peace and nonviolence.
