Notes from Nonviolence: Restoring our Spirits

After an intensive week of 12+ hour days (including breaktime), we participants in the 12th International Nonviolence Summer Institute got a break!

Following the Level I knowledge assessment, we got Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday off.

Saturday evening, students from the Multicultural Center kindly helped us explore the state.  Many of us headed into Providence, RI, for a little touristing.

One of our training classmates who lives locally invited us to her house for lunch and relaxation for Sunday.  We enjoyed a delicious meal together then lounged, swam in the lake, visited with her animals, and played bocci ball.
Loading our plates full of delicious food!
