I consider Restorative Circles to be a very effective form of Restorative Justice which not only offers a form of conflict resolution but supports communities in creating a restorative / collaborative life style in which conflict is not seen as a threat but as a next step in everyones personal growth and the development of the community. I personally facilitate Restorative Circles and offer training.

They drew a circle that shut me out,
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout!
But love and I had the wit to win
We drew a circle that took them in.
(Edwin Markham 1852-1940)
