Ahimsa and Sustainable Happiness

The 5th biannual conference for advancing scholarships and education in nonviolence, as well as generating new insights for practical applications.

  • Venue: Ahimsa Center, California Polytechnic University, Pomona
  • Date: November 2-4, 2012

Note: This is not a Greater Good Science Center event.

This conference seeks to merge the discourses on happiness with those on ahimsa to explore the multiple perspectives of synergy, reciprocity and unity between ahimsa and happiness. Instead of advocating a mere avoidance of violence, this conference will emphasize the many positive facets—such as caring, compassion, forgiveness, generosity, gratitude, mindfulness, reverence for life, and trust—that make ahimsa a constructive and creative force.

The Ahimsa center is also making a call for proposals for this event. Proposals should represent multiple disciplinary perspectives with practice-based insights that illuminate the multi-faceted relationship between ahimsa and happiness.
