Organization and Professional Role/Title
Session 1: Returning to the Community-Building Circle as an Ancient and Spiritual Practice: Tuesday, June 21, 9:00 a.m. — 10:30 a.m. PDT
In this session you will be guided through a restorative circle centered around the implementation of restorative practices. The circle will be designed to highlight the sacred, healing, and ancestral elements of the community-building circle with attention to ritual, mindfulness, and spiritual practice.
Session 2: Restorative Practices and Alignment to Mind, Body, and Spiritual Wellness: Monday, June 27, 11:00 a.m. — 12:00 p.m. PDT
In this session participants will be guided through mindfulness practices and other reflective/spiritual meditations as important elements of restorative practices. Restorative practices are an exercise of wellness. Therefore, wellness to mind, body, and spirit will be addressed as essential to our own sustainability as restorative justice practitioners.
Session 3: Interrogating Whiteness – An Essential Practice for White RJ Practitioners: Tuesday, June 28, 9:00 a.m.— 11:00 a.m. PDT
This session invites RJ practitioners who identify as white to practice unlearning some of the norms we have internalized from white dominant culture, as those normative enactments can undermine our efforts to cultivate relationships and communities that are truly equitable and restorative. Through guided self-reflection, embodied practices, and dialogue, participants will cultivate greater mindfulness of our positionality as white RJ practitioners within the broader racialized context and will deepen our capacity to recalibrate our engagement to be in service of justice and liberation.
Session 4: Coaching Session: RJ Implementation (emphasis in higher education): Tuesday, June 28, 3:00 p.m. — 4:00 p.m. PDT
Julia Wade is the Associate Director for Restorative Practices in the Office of Student Conduct & Community Responsibility at Loyola Marymount University. She manages multiple restorative justice programs that also require interdepartmental collaboration across student affairs. This session is a dialogue-based opportunity for coaching. Bring your questions, concerns, ideas, or roadblocks to discuss and explore with the group. The goal is capacity-building, to support each other in growing our implementation. All are invited, with an emphasis on implementation in higher education.

Session 5: The Power of Play for Building Meaningful Connections: Thursday, June 30, 11:00 a.m. — 12:00 p.m. PDT
Finale session: Learn energizing and uplifting games and activities that offer meaningful connections in in-person and virtual spaces. When you engage participants in intentional play you are inviting a higher level of connection in a short period of time, and that makes every online or in-person engagement experience substantially more effective. Participants in this workshop will learn and experience a wide variety of intentional play-based activities, understand the purpose and value of different games, and learn the art of debriefing to support your group’s growth and sense of connection. In addition, learn tips and tricks to overcome “Zoom fatigue” and support your group’s well-being.
