Restorative Practices and Restorative Justice have been increasingly used in schools and elsewhere as a tool for building community and for bringing community back into balance when harm has been done. While PR/RJ offers a set of processes, for this work to be effective it need to be grounded in the recognition of the strengths and the light that reside in each person. At this weekend-long retreat, participants will engage in hands-on experiences with RP/RJ circles. Additionally, this weekend will allow participants to consider how our intersectional identities, our beliefs and values (spiritual and otherwise) provide us with the lens through which we engage in this work.
