Canadian Friends Service Committee is offering a free interactive workshop series to study and do activities from our award-winning book Are We Done Fighting? Building Understanding in a World of Hate and Divison.

The series will help participants to learn from one another and to develop our peace skills, skills that we can use in all aspects of our lives. While we need to maintain our physical distance, we can still come together virtually to build life-enriching connections.

Help to spread the word about these workshops by sharing this poster on social media!

Current groups are full but you can fill in the form below to register your interest for the next offering of this workshop series in the fall (exact dates and times still to be determined).

The themes for the five weeks are:

  1. Introduction (setting ground rules, learning about the group and some of the strengths present and challenges we each face)
  2. Us, others, and power
  3. Communication
  4. Belief
  5. Inner peace

There will be an optional sixth week in case participants want to discuss additional material in the book not covered in these sessions.

Peace skills are best built together, so these sessions will require active participation from everyone. Each week will build on where we left off the previous week. For that reason, no new participants will be able to join if they haven’t participated in at least one of the first two weeks. Each session will be 90 minutes long.

If the above form is not working or if you have any questions or ideas to discuss please contact us.
