Peacemaking Circles

Description

There are various forms of Restorative Justice practice, and Circle Keeping is one. Keeping a Circle is not always restorative justice, since it can be used for many reasons, such as building community, celebrations, and learning. But Circle Keeping is a useful restorative practice after harm has been done, both for healing and for conflict. This training will provide participants with an understanding of the basic components of Circle Keeping, as well as give everyone an experience of being in circle. Participants will gain knowledge of the various ways in which Circle Keeping is used, and by the end of the two-day training, they will be equipped to hold a simple circle on their own in a safe setting. Barbie Fischer is Executive Director of Restorative Encounters, a nonprofit association of practitioners around the globe offering training & capacity-building in the field of restorative justice. Ms. Fischer has almost 20 years of experience in restorative justice, working in community & program development with various organizations & government agencies around the world. She is known for her engaging workshops & presentations on RJ, restorative practices, and trauma healing. Her passion is uncovering restorative ways to heal trauma at all levels of society and sharing that information with others.
