Canadian Friends Service Committee is offering a free interactive peace skills workshop series. You can join a group to learn together, doing 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 eight times. It is offered based on demand. Register below to reserve your spot in the next offering. Once enough people are registered, you’ll be notified and the series will begin.

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 helps us to develop skills that we can use in all aspects of our lives.

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)

Expect to wrestle with some new ideas and to engage both your heart and head.”—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 active participation from everyone. Each week will build on 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 sessions. Each session is 90 minutes long.
