Commonly these bring together the three parties to a conflict – those who have acted, those directly impacted and the wider community – within an intentional systemic context, to dialogue as equals. Often participants invite each other and attend voluntarily. The dialogue process used is shared openly with all participants, and guided by a community member. Generally these processes end with actions that bring mutual benefit.</p><p>As circle forms, these practices tend to invite shared power, mutual understanding, self-responsibility and agreed actions that repair harm, restore relationship and reintegrate community.</p><p>Please watch the <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/video" target="_blank">videos</a>, read the online <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/press" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.restorativecircles.org/press">articles</a>, attend one of our <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/upcoming-learning-events" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.restorativecircles.org/upcoming-learning-events">learning events</a> and collaborate with those developing practical responses to community safety and empowerment.</p><p>Also, visit our Facebook Page, here: <a href="http://www.facebook.com/RestorativeCircles" title="Link: http://www.facebook.com/RestorativeCircles">http://www.facebook.com/RestorativeCircles</a></p><p>check us out daily on Twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/restoracircles" title="Link: http://twitter.com/restoracircles">http://twitter.com/restoracircles</a></p><p>or participate in one of the Facebook groups, either for <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/61376272162" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/61376272162">Restorative Circles</a> or for practices which are <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/3159332134145679" target="_blank">derivations of Restorative Circles</a>.</p><p>You can also write to contatodominic (at) gmail.com</p><div><br></div></div>]]> </content> <author> <name/> </author> </entry> </feed>
