Book Talk and Breakfast: Catherine Cadden and Jesse Wiens, author of The Ongo Book: Everyday Nonviolence

* The first 10 registrants will receive a copy of the authors' book at the event.

"The Ongo Book: Everyday Nonviolence" by Catherine Cadden and Jesse Wiens is a guide for those who want to be nonviolence in the real world. The book offers a progression of short, simple, and doable practices for readers to incorporate into their daily lives over the course of three months, and a flexible structure that supports couples and groups who wish to practice together. Practices like mindfulness meditation, Nonviolent Communication, gratitude, and forgiveness are explained in clear, ordinary language, with an emphasis on how they can be applied in everyday life situations. From basic body awareness to making boundaries and speaking truth, The Ongo Book explores both the practical and the profound, with accessible yet deep learning for all practitioners.
