In this dynamic one day presentation, Dominic Barter will present the key elements of a restorative system, focusing on the evolution and practice of Restorative Circles, and their application to diverse areas of our personal and collective lives. Through hands-on exploration of key concepts, grounded in a step-by-step process and illustrated by real world examples, we’ll rehearse the development of this new resource in a community of which we are part. Participants will be invited to apply the learning to their own issues and increase their ability to see and act from our shared humanity. More about Restorative Circles: A Restorative Circle is a community process for supporting those in conflict. It brings together the three parties to a conflict – those who have acted, those directly impacted, and the wider community – within a chosen systemic context, to dialogue as equals. Participants invite each other and attend voluntarily. The process ends when actions have been found that bring mutual benefit that nurtures the inherent integrity of all those involved in the conflict. Restorative Circles are facilitated by community members who identify themselves as impacted by the conflict at hand. ***Registration is required for this event, follow the link at the bottom.
