Steven follows the non-violence philosophy of Ahimsa and the precepts of Mahatma Gandhi. Steven believes that we live in both a spiritual and physical world. Our individual and societal challenge is to live the middle way of Taoism and in the non-violence of Jainism, and Buddhism.

The Ahimsa Accord

Although we are deep within one of Humanities darkest hours there is still incredible hope within the human spirit to find a way in this decade to create a world of nonviolence, peace, and happiness at the highest most enlightened level. 

To reach this level humanity Society must change course, and end the continual violence against itself, its animals, and this very planet that sustains us. 

Ahimsa Accord has formed around Steven’s 7 manifestations of non-violence. Nonviolence is an active force of the highest order. A creative force of love, not hate. A force that humanity has not fully awakened to or has yet grasped the depth of its life-changing force.
