Circle Training

Restorative justice (RJ) is a philosophy, a set of principles and practices that builds community, responds to harm, and holds space for re-integration. RJ is founded and depends on personal and community values, and commitment. The theory and practices of restorative justice emphasize the importance of engaging in dialogue among all those affected by harmful behaviour.

In two days of experiential-based training, participants will learn that peacemaking circles can be used for many reasons; not only as a forum for conflict resolution, but as an alternative communication method that allows people to deal with extremely painful and difficult issues, manage their own healing process, make agreements that promote moving forward in a good way, celebrate successes, build community and make decisions, which can be applied in a variety of contexts and settings.
