To empower people to lead non-violent lives through respect for everyone, including respect for self, community building, co-operation and conflict resolution. Based on real life experience and spiritual foundation, AVP encourages every person's innate power to positively transform themselves indivudually and thereby changing the world around them.
AVP is non-religious and non-sectarian in its presentation, while freely borrowing from any tradition that expresses kindness, compassion and non-violence. AVP encourages every individual to transform themselves and thereby leading to a chain reaction that will hopefully lead to a change in the world around them one person at a time.
Violence is all around us regardless of race, religion, sex, age or your location on the earth. The word "violence" means something different to each of us and some do not even realize they are behaving violently and that their actions or words hurt those around them. AVP is a tool to facilitate people to become more aware of themselves, their surroundings and the impact their words and actions have on others. Through this process, one can begin to modify undesirable behaviour and learn how to better connect with their fellow man. Becoming better people, one human being at a time.
