The Third Harmony

“I highly recommend this engaging, well-argued, serious, and realistic book.” – Rajmohan Gandhi, a grandson of Gandhi

The world needs to take a vastly different direction, and quickly. A whole new way of seeing the world and our role in it is called for. It’s what some call the “new story,” which rejects the capitalist narrative that pits humans against each other and turns to a collaborative vision. This book focuses on how a nonviolence mindset can be integrated into the foundations of humanity and community, not just on how nonviolence works as a protest tactic. 

Available from booksellers like: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Berrett-Koehler, Book Depository, Bookshop, IndieBound

Nonviolence Daily

We unleash nonviolence whenever we convert destructive drives like fear or anger into love and compassion.

How can we unleash nonviolence for the benefit of ourselves, our families, and society? Nonviolence Daily lights the way, with digestible insights on creating inner peace, resolving conflicts, and building community. Each page highlights a quote by Mahatma Gandhi, whose very life was a message of nonviolence. In our commentaries, co-author Stephanie N. Van Hook and I show how practical idealists can draw from Gandhi’s wisdom every day.

Hope or Terror?

As Gandhi said, our deepest desire is “to seek fellowship and as far as we possibly can, peace” with everyone.

On September 11, 1906, Mahatma Gandhi officially launched the world’s first strategic, nonviolent resistance campaign. This is what I refer to as the other 9/11, since it occurred almost a century before September 11, 2001. Hope or Terror? tells the story of the birth of Satyagraha, which literally means “clinging to truth,” in South Africa.

How do nonviolent activists remain nonviolent—and preserve inner calm—in the face of such severe violence? Through a sustained discipline of calming the mind.
