"The Power of Dialogue"

We offer this video series as an opportunity for you to journey along with our journey. Restorative Circles is still very new to the world, and learning material and resources are somewhat limited. So here’s our attempt to celebrate this body of work and to offer back a few nuggets from our unfolding journey.

Our big dream is to one day film an entire live Restorative Circle. It’s an intimate and delicate space, and so we’re crossing our fingers that sooner or later a group will be comfortable with the idea of being filmed… Would you like this Circle to be yours?

1. The Craft

↪ a learning resource to highlight the RC process in its different steps and stages

Coming soon…

 

2. In Action

↪ touching “live” moments from different stages of real Circles that have been called in the community

Before entering a Restorative Circle, Facilitators meet amongst themselves to work through any challenging thoughts or feelings that might interfere with their capacity to hold space during the Circle. Eugénie Dumont (Genie), in her role as filmmaker, is also given an opportunity to be heard for her connection to the Circle.

Coming soon…
