A Season for NonViolence

A Season for NonViolence


Dear Friend in Spirit,

This Sunday, February 4th join us at The Center for Spiritual Living DC as we come together once again to ground ourselves in the Spiritual Truths that we know will uplift not only our own consciousness but the overall consciousness in the Nation’s capital!




This Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Rev. Alex.


Rev. Alex

1. Respect I vow to respect others and the interconnectedness of all life.
2. Understanding I vow to understand the “whys” (the meaning behind behavior), for myself and others.
3. Acceptance Out of respect and understanding, I vow to accept the differences of others.
4. Appreciating Differences I seek to move beyond acceptance into appreciation and celebration of difference.
5. Truth and Truthfulness I commit to be truthful and authentic and to confront untruth wherever I find it.
6. Absorbing Suffering I take on without complaint any suffering that results from my confrontation with untruth.
7. Ahimsa (nonviolence) with my Adversary I vow to help my adversary avoid all suffering, especially from our confrontation.
8. Trusteeship and Constructive Action Beyond personal necessities, I see myself as God’s trustee over my possessions and talents. I promise to use them to empower others and make things fair for all.

This Sunday we will explore action steps towards being the change we wish to see in the world.
