Circles of Peace Workshop – An Introduction
Registration Open
Mark Klym and Bonnie Wasniewski

The “Circle” process is an old approach, developed and used in Native American cultures of the United States and Canada. Its adaptation to the criminal justice system developed in the 1980’s.


We have taken the concept of Circles and developed a new approach to Peacemaking. The process makes it possible for civil dialogue to happen.


The Circle process is especially useful for:

• Blended families

• Teachers/Principals

• Supervisors

• Neighborhood issues

• People in Leadership  

In this workshop, the basic hows and whys of the circle process will be demonstrated. You will have the opportunity to learn the Circle process both as a participant and leader.


The Circle process is recommended to use for building community, resolving conflicts and promoting respectful dialogue among people with differing points of view.


Bring a friend and/or family and learn the Circles of Peace together.


Fee Per Person: $75, includes lunch. Pre-registration is required.
