The Joy Living and Learning Centre is a work in progress – and aren’t we all?!… Our dream is to build a small living community based on the principles of Nonviolence, where people from around the globe can come and explore interdependence, self-responsibility, authenticity, self-reflection, and much more!
“My optimism rests on my belief in the infinite possibilities of the individual to develop nonviolence. The more you develop it in your own heart, the more infectious it becomes, till it overwhelms your surroundings and, by and by, might oversweep the world.” ~~ Gandhi
We’re also part of the larger international community, Auroville (situated in south India), and with its purpose being to actualize human unity, we’re surrounded by opportunities for growth and learning.
With our main focus on Nonviolence, we organize workshops, residential programs and practice groups on Nonviolent Communication, Mediation, Restorative Circles and more. We are also available for community support and personal coaching.
And on a very practical level, we also run a simple guest house, steward a beautiful piece of land, and grow vegetables and fruit trees.
Thanks for visiting, virtually or otherwise…!
