The Little Book of Circle Processes

A New/Old Approach to Peacemaking

     
     Drawn from Native American practices, these peacemaking circles are used in many communities to deal with conflict and create stronger relationships. Includes detailed information about how to lead and/or participate in one of the circle process.

     
     Our ancestors gathered around a fire in a circle, families gather around their kitchen tables in circles, and now we are gathering in circles as communities to solve problems. The practice draws on the ancient Native American tradition of a talking piece. 
     
     Peacemaking Circles are used in neighborhoods to provide support for those harmed by crime and to decide sentences for those who commit crime, in schools to create positive classroom climates and resolve behavior problems, in the workplace to deal with conflict, and in social services to develop more organic support systems for people struggling to get their lives together. 
     
     A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
