October 22: The Why of Restorative Circles

10 AM ~ led by the Restorative Circles group

Last May, a group of eight from the UUCUV attended an all-weekend training event in the skills and methods of the Restorative Circle method of conflict resolution.  Communities in conflict join in a circle to speak and be heard.  The powerful question “Did I hear you right?” makes this format an exercise in mutual respect and understanding.

The Restorative Circle Facilitators Group, which meets monthly to practice their skills, will lead a service on the history of Restorative Justice, the plan behind the circles, and what we see as a method of conflict resolution which honors the inherent worth and dignity of all persons.

Come hear about multi-partiality and practice reflective listening with us!
