Walking towards conflict: One Day Overview of Restorative Circles with Dominic Barter
10am-6.30pm
Saturday 30th January, Rook Lane Chapel, Frome

In this dynamic one-day presentation, Dominic Barter will share his groundbreaking work re-visioning the role of conflict in our lives. He will present the key elements of a restorative system, focusing on the evolution and practice of Restorative Circles, and their application to diverse areas of our personal and collective lives. We will look at how we can use conflict to develop community, make change and connect us to our shared humanity. Through hands-on exploration of key concepts, grounded in a step-by-step process and illustrated by real world examples, we'll experience the use of this resource and develop the tools to apply the learning to our own context.

Restorative Circles:

Restorative Circles developed with an understanding that conflict is a regular and
necessary part of our social life, offering us vital feedback on the well being of our
agreements and relationships. Walking towards, rather than seeking to avoid or
control, conflict supports us develop the listening required to foster deeper and more
resilient connection. This in turn provides a basis on which sustainable efforts for
change depend.

Restorative Circles are a community process for supporting those in conflict. It brings
together those impacted within a chosen systemic context, to dialogue as equals.
The conversation is facilitated by community members. Participants invite each other
and attend voluntarily. The process ends when actions have been found that bring
mutual benefit.
Begun in the shantytown favelas of Rio de Janeiro 20 years ago this work is now
active in almost 30 countries around the world, from families in North America to
nomadic communities in Africa, activist groups South America and family courts in
Asia. Whether we seek to build sustainable community, create a healthier personal or
professional life, develop a fairer and more effective justice system or improve social
justice and measure well-being, Restorative Circles provide a versatile and practical
process for empathic dialogue and transformative action.

Dominic Barter:
Dominic Barter develops social technologies to promote dialogue, partnership and
social policy. He was active in the development of Restorative Circles in Rio de
Janeiro, was training programme director for the Brazilian Restorative Justice pilot
projects, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program, the Ministry
of Justice and Ministry of Education, and continues to work with communities on
developing restorative systems, most recently with striking students in Brazil and
institutions in South Korea, Senegal and France. Dominic was a long term student
and colleague of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg and served as president of the Board of
Directors for the international Center for Nonviolent Communication.

Financial Contribution:
These events are not charged. Information on the costs involved, both for the event
and the well being of those offering it, are instead shared with all participants during
the event and they are offered a way to contribute financially, by cash or cheque, to
meeting those costs. In this way we practice community self reliance, increase access
for all who wish and align with the community origins of the work.

When choosing what to contribute we ask that you are mindful of your situation and
resources and how you can support the wider sharing of this work; and to consider
the sustainability of those involved, the work that has gone into developing these
tools, organising the event and the reality of the financial system that we are working
within, especially when developments such as Restorative Circles come from the
margins of the global south.
The intention is to create an experience of inclusivity and shared responsibility, as
within Restorative Circles themselves. We hope handling the finances in this way
fosters an experience of co-creation and supports each of us to develop awareness
of power and choice in our daily living.
