Community Talking Circles throughout the inner city: healing identities from the culture of harm & violence, into relationships of belonging, place, and reciprocity.

The Restoring Circles Project teaches a toolkit of skills that together weave identities of belonging, role, and wellness. The system is Indigenous.

We are weaving a new container of community belonging and place, working with Transformative Justice, Reconciliation, and Indigenous-Ally co-creation: inclusive, restorative, Indigenous-based, systemic and constantly innovating.

The Restoring Circles Project is an Indigenous-Ally social innovation project to end violence in relationships, by mobilizing evidence-based, transformative social technologies that come from Indigenous culture, with a network of social justice & Indigenous agencies.

  •  Training front-line change makers, counselors and leaders in restorative identity, relationship and systems transformation tools, to coach with members, clients, peers and partners.

  • Launching Talking Circles for community-based conflict resolution, healing from trauma and addictions, and building relationships of belonging, place, trust and respect.

  • Connecting partners and leaders in a network of practioners & allies, collaborating new partnerships for daily justice, equity, and social evolution.
