Introducing the Metta Center for Nonviolence

Educators for Nonviolence is a project by the Metta Center for Nonviolence. We envision a world transformed by an awareness of the true potential of every human being, where all of life is sacred, and where all our social systems work in harmony with the earth. We see a world in which conflict rarely occurs, and when it does, can always be addressed by nonviolence.

The Metta Center for Nonviolence provides educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society?

In addition to holding special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council at the United Nations, we produce the biweekly Nonviolence Radio and create accessible online courses for anyone who wants to make nonviolence a meaningful part of their everyday life and to actively participate in building a world that works for everyone.



Personal wellbeing and inner growth are vital to creating positive change. Enjoy these inspirational resources.
