Peacemaking circles provide a way to bring people together to have difficult conversations and to work through conflict or differences.  The circle process is a way of getting the most complete picture people can of themselves, each other and the issue at hand to enable them to move together in a good way.  Circles are based on an assumption of positive potential – that something good can always come out of whatever situation we are in.  Circles also assume that no one of us has the whole picture – that it is only by sharing all of our perspectives that we can come closer to a complete picture.

The peacemaking circle process is being used for decision making, community building, problem solving and conflict resolution in schools, neighborhoods, workplace, family and the criminal justice system.

The introductory training explores:

  • foundational values and philosophy of circle practice, 
  • ceremony and ritual of circles,
  • conflict as opportunity to build relationships,
  • structure of circle process,
  • practical applications of circle process,
  • initiating the circle process,
  • problems and challenges in circles.
