2) McKenna Center Project: Healing Circles
We presently offer healing circles twice a month for men living on the streets, shelters, or in low-income situations. Our topics include personal, family, community/workplace, meaning/spiritual struggles. We are open to expanding this work if your organization is interested.
3) Anacostia Community: Healing Circles
We accompany community leaders in a Washington DC neighborhood within Anacostia who are struggling to address local issues of trauma, conflict, disruption, and violence. We create a space for healing, creative imagination linked to genuine needs of key stakeholders, and collaborative initiatives rooted in the strengths and wisdom of the local community.
4) Training and Facilitation
We offer training in restorative justice skills. We also offer professional facilitators for dialogues between persons or groups to transform conflict, increase understanding, and build community, etc.
With a core partner, DC Alliance for Restorative Practices, we offer professional restorative justice practitioners in schools, justice systems, etc.
