Introduction To Restorative Justice Workshops
Restorative justice is a philosophy rooted in the indigenous teachings of all cultures that supports relationship-building, improved communication and the repair of harm.
This half day workshop is designed to explore and explain the philosophy and practices of Restorative Justice. This experiential workshop fosters healthy communication, relationship-building and familiarizes participants with the peace circle process.
Four-Day Peacemaking Circle Keeper Training (See Note)
A four-day experiential training prepares participants to facilitate peace circles in the community, within organizations and in schools. Participants learn the fundamental elements of circles including ritual, story-telling, creating safe space, establishing shared values, building relationships and trust, and consensus decision-making.
This training will prepare participants to begin keep circles; we believe the depth of experience necessary to prepare participants to keep circles involving serious conflict and deep emotional issues will require additional training and circle keeping experience.
NOTE: We anticipate re-opening applications for training in the Fall of 2023. If you have question please reach out to us at our email or phone number.
Monthly Circle for Circle Keepers
