An evening with Dominic Barter, focused on Restorative Circles. Successfully used in schools, neighbourhoods, organisations, and the criminal justice system in Brazil, Restorative Circles offer ways for individuals and communities to establish connection, discover meaning and recover power on profound levels. They create a forum for uncovering the human motives behind painful choices and enlisting the responsibility of the community to find effective strategies to meet pressing needs.
Restorative Circles are developed within the Restorative Justice movement, which in recent decades has rediscovered and adapted ways for communities to promote responsibility and healing. They are guided by the principles of Nonviolent Communication, which supports those engaging with the challenge of consciously building whole system responses to community well-being, and has opened up remarkable possibilities for furthering a culture of peace.
