Ahimsa Center’s Seventh Biannual Conference on Nonviolence

November 18-20, 2016
Cal Poly Pomona

The conference theme is: Giving and Forgiving.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Note: This is not a Greater Good Science Center event.
Giving and forgiving are matters of the heart. The more magnanimity we evolve in our hearts, the easier it is for us to give and forgive. The more we give and forgive, the more enriched our lives become, widening our circles to include not only those who we give, but also those who we forgive.
The conference is relevant to a wide range of diverse audience including college faculty and students, K-12 educators, business executives and other professionals, and members of the larger community.
