What is a Restorative Paradigm?
Restorative paradigms emphasize the interconnectedness of community and the core values people share with one another. The focus is on developing habits of thinking and behavior in keeping with these shared, core values. Restorative Practice first involves building and strengthening personal and community relationships. Secondly, when there is division or when harm has been done, rather than meting out retributive punishment, Restorative Practice asks that everyone involved take responsibility for their attitudes and their actions and repair any harm that has resulted from their behavior.
What is a Peace Circle?
The Peacemaking Circle is a process that brings together individuals who wish to engage in conflict resolution, healing, support, decision making or other activities in which honest communication, relationship development, and community building are core desired outcomes. Derived from aboriginal and native traditions, Circles bring people together in a way that is inclusive and creates trust, respect and a sense of belonging. As they experience Circles, participants begin to develop the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual habits of peacemaking.
