About Peacemaking Circles

The Peacemaking Circle training is an opportunity for anyone interested in conflict resolution, community building or restorative justice to increase their skills and knowledge for having difficult conversations. The peacemaking circle is a dialogue process useful for increasing understanding among different perspectives and for creating effective solutions to long-standing issues of conflict or disconnection. The circle strives to create an environment safe for every participant to express their point of view and nurtures the possibility of finding win-win solutions for the benefit of all. Circles have been used in schools, families, workplaces, neighborhoods, faith communities, social services and the justice system.
