Restorative Circles - a restorative justice and compassionate conflict engagement practice. Facilitator Workshop registration: http://www.spiritualliving.org/classes.
Are you interested in greater harmony in your community, family and organizations? Can you imagine engaging conflict in a way that builds relationships? Do you seek social transformation, power sharing, and justice?
A "Restorative Circle" is a restorative justice practice that empowers communities to deal with conflicts in a way that efficiently and effectively meets the needs of those involved and deepens connections among its members. Restorative Circles harness the generative wisdom and shared power of community. The facilitated process supports people to step into important and bold conversations with safety and provides a mechanism for vibrant, ongoing, community-based restorative justice systems.
The 12/3 workshop will allow you to explore the Restorative Circle practice for yourself and consider participating as a facilitator and leader in establishing restorative systems in your own communities. We dive into the restorative circle practice, provide foundation for the elements and purpose of each part of the process, and create a supportive environment to engage in hands-on facilitation. Future dates: 3/10/2012; 5/5/2012 deepening workshop.
Developed in Brazil by Dominic Barter, Restorative Circles are used in a wide range of groups, organizations, schools, court systems, communities, workplaces, and families around the world. www.restorativecircles.org. Restorative systems and restorative circles are emerging in Seattle and surrounding communities. http://my.compassionateactionnetwork.com/profile/RestorativeCirclesSeattle. In the immediate aftermath of a Seattle police officer's fatal shooting of John T. Williams, a First Nations wood carver, a Restorative Circle was held between Police, the family and community. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2014113565_diazreport03m.html.
