Violence is a self-inflicted cultural story, a behavioral disease, and a public health problem of massive proportions. A holistic understanding of repeated cycles of violence and a vision of life without violence can empower an entire culture to recover.  The process of returning to health uses outer, transitory goals such as the establishment of civic institutions. 

Overview

Violence is a self-inflicted cultural story, a behavioral disease, and a public health problem of massive proportions. A holistic understanding of repeated cycles of violence and a vision of life without violence can empower an entire culture to recover.  The process of returning to health uses outer, transitory goals such as the establishment of civic institutions.  Ultimately, it moves us through inner, personal layers of grief and despair into forgiveness, hope, civic responsibility, and true security.

Most of us are helplessly entangled in the culture of violence as witness, victim or perpetrator. It could be systemic, inter-personal or internal violence, spiritual, mental, emotional or physical violence. This book is about unravelling the complex, unconscious culture of violence with the guidance of Hazen's inspiration and practical recommendations. He takes a page out of 'the book of daring' as he embodies and expresses the courage to be the change he wishes to see in the world. His personal story sheds light onto the potential of our collective story. Letting go – the wisdom of going with the flow – is beautifully described as he reminds himself and the reader, "I didn't need to push the river. I could swim in it."

Meet the Author

David had a hell of a childhood, so he became a nonviolent nonconformist. He earned the nickname "Blazin' Hazen" for making new trails in the wild lake-country of northern Minnesota. He has both the practical ego of his engineer father and the imagination of his ballroom-dancing mother, a Master's degree in systematic design-planning and some recognition as a peacebuilder as well as a builder of an exotic electric vehicle.
