Mid-Missouri Alternatives to Violence Project
Transforming Power Mandala
The central theme in AVP is Transforming Power. This is the power, available to us all, to change (transform) what might be a violent or destructive situation into a nonviolent one. The basis of Transforming Power is an appreciation of one's own self worth and a caring attitude towards all others. Accessing this power requires the ability to separate feelings about someone's behavior from feelings for that person.
