The recently founded "Iranian Nonviolence" (IN) initiative has been meeting weekly online to talk and learn about non-violence as an ethically evolved collaborative and peaceful approach to human interactions and to managing conflicts. These Sunday gatherings are held on the online Clubhouse mobile application. Participants in these live bilingual (English-Persian) waging-peace "rooms" include Iranians both in and outside Iran--and also those who do not speak Persian (Farsi).
The guest at the group's upcoming session on Sunday, Feb. 5, is Prof. Michael Nagler, founder of the Metta Center for Nonviolence. The Center helps people develop, sustain, and deepen their commitment to nonviolence globally, and has Special Consultative Status at the United Nations.
The session starts at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
The meetings hope to establish a bilingual forum within which Iranian people (especially inside Iran) can build on the heritage of non-violence found in their culture and poetry to engage in peace-building, especially with American people.
