Our Gandhi-Ji 150 program is designed to offer inspiring and educational opportunities to help you–the influencer–become skilled in the ways of Creative Non-Violent Action.

In October 2017, Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, said to me, "I want you to celebrate my grandfather’s 150th birthday in Nashville." I said, "Okay. I will." This entire program is an answer to his request. The specific activity he requested will take place on Saturday, September 14th, 2019, at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody campus. There, we will staff our "burning bowl" so all who care to may release "that which they hate" into a flame for the purpose of transformation, creating a space for each to declare how they choose to be the opposite of what they hate – to BE THE CHANGE they wish to see in the world. Volunteers will encourage all to dream of a world that works for all and to see their place in it. This activity is available to everyone present and is specifically what Mr. Gandhi asked me to offer to the city.
