You can join a free workshop series to do activities from our award-winning book Are We Done Fighting? Building Understanding in a World of Hate and Division.

The full series has already run 13 times with more almost 200 people taking part. It is offered based on demand. As soon as enough people are registered for one of the two time slots, the series is scheduled to begin.

Register now.

Leading figures in peacebuilding and human rights promotion are calling the book “a joy,” “exceptionally valuable and timely,” “a much needed antidote against the risk of depression and despair,” and “enabling, practical, and clear-minded.”

Drawing from the book, this workshop series will help you to develop skills that you can use in all aspects of your life.

The book and the course itself was FAR MORE than I had anticipated. The facilitators were knowledgeable, sensitive, and supportive. I am sad it is over…. It was so wonderful.”—workshop participant (from anonymous feedback survey)

I thought it would be a more intellectual exercise, which I was open to. Instead it turned out to be a more emotional, deeper experience than that.”—workshop participant (from anonymous feedback survey)

Feedback on our anonymous surveys is clear: people enjoy and recommend this series. Workshop participants tell us all sorts of stories of how they’re putting the skills they sharpened to immediate use. They’re feeling empowered to transform conflicts and build understanding.

I really felt a sense of connection and care for each other in the group.”—workshop participant (from anonymous feedback survey)

While we need to maintain our physical distance, we can still come together virtually to build life-enriching connections.

Get ready to think in new ways with respect to conflict.”—workshop participant (from anonymous feedback survey)

These sessions require your active participation.

Each session is 90 minutes long and each week builds on the previous week. For that reason, no new participants join the group if they haven’t taken part in at least one of the first two weeks.

My attitudes changed. Be open to that happening to you.”—workshop participant (from anonymous feedback survey)
