Author Pummy Kaur finds ’64 ways for 64 days’ to promote non-violence

Pummy Kaur, a Vancouver-based author and social justice activist, has just released a new book entitled ‘A Season of Non-Violence: 64 Ways for 64 Days’. Steven Staples, President of the Rideau Institute, has written a foreward to the book. In it, Steven writes:

“Upon reading [the] book, the reader may no longer be able to assume distance from the wars splashed upon their television screen.

This may provide the impetus necessary for fostering global peace, as peace, asserts Kaur, starts with the individual.”

The book is available for purchase by clicking this link.
