Our world suffers from a lack of leaders rooted in the traditions of nonviolence.
When conflicts arise, many leaders teach us to wield threats, coercion, and harm. When unfamiliar perspectives disturb, many leaders rally us to certainty and defensiveness. When decisions must be made, many leaders encourage us to value self-interest, immediacy, and possession. As we follow these guides, the fabric of our communities weakens, the resources of our earth become misused and depleted, and life becomes more difficult for all of us.
For those who desire a different approach to social problems, the Satyagraha Institute offers a program to train leaders in the traditions of nonviolence.
Mission & Goals
Satyagraha Institute works to promote the understanding and practice of satyagraha as a method for social change.
