Canadian Friends Service Committee is pleased to announce that we will be offering a free interactive workshop series to study and do activities from our 2019 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. Join us for the five week workshop series over Zoom.

While we need to maintain our physical distance, we can still build life-enriching connections with each other.

The themes for the five weeks will be:

  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. When registering there is an option to let us know which days and times you prefer or that do not work for you. We can’t make any promises, but will do our best to accommodate everyone’s schedules. Once enough participants have registered, we will schedule a recurring time each week.

The workshop series will be capped at 20 participants. To ensure your spot, register below to express your interest in participating:
