A resolution process for healing relationships and keeping them healthy, Peacemaking Circles explores how communities can respond to crimes in ways that address the needs and interests of all those affected—victims, offenders, their families and friends, and the community. Based on indigenous teachings combined with research in conflict resolution, the Circle process improves relationships, addresses underlying cause, and enhances individual and community self-reliance. Types of Circles may include Community Building Circles, Talking Circles, Healing Circles, Reintegration Circles, Conflict Circles, and Sentencing Circles.


Workshop topics may include:

  • structure of circle process          – challenges in circles               – circle facilitation skills
  • ritual & ceremony of circles      – beginning the circle process    – applications of circle process
  • foundational values & the philosophy of circle practice
