Transformative Circles

Transformative Circles are a community process for supporting those in conflict. The circles bring together 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. Facilitation is done by diverse teams grounded in a variety of competencies in addition to restorative practices.

This course helped me find a healing space in myself and to imagine holding a healing space for those who need to repair harm and all who need care.  It offers an integrated approach to justice that heals.

Cohort #1 Partcipant

Here's an opportunity to learn about the concept of race, privilege, punishment...as well as systems developed to maintain this superiority. Learn how much history hasn't changed all that much with regards to attitudes and values.

I loved taking this course. If you are interested in understanding how we got where we are as a country you need this course in your life. The curriculum was heavy on history and the classes were formatted to encourage a lot of group participation which made it a fun, rich learning experience. Ten out of ten, would definitely do it again!
