Please join us for a 90-minute community-building gratitude circle, where participants will be invited to relate, connect, and grow through guided sharing around the theme of gratitude.  Though, we have come through great pain and many have experienced significant harm with the many challenges of this year, it is important we take a moment to give thanks for the good.  In the words of Eckhart Tolle, “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” During this session, a circlekeeper will lead the small group through a structured, restorative circle dialogue process with a focus on gratitude.  Together we hold space to enter the joy of one another.

Each circle will be facilitated by experienced DCPT RJ circlekeepers.

Restorative Justice, or "RJ," is a philosophy and set of practices that engage the community in building relationships and repairing harm through inclusive dialogue, deep understanding, and shared power.

RJ processes are powerful catalysts for truth-telling, healing, and growth through the collective confrontation of pain and challenges. RJ operates through two central ideas: harm can be faced, and harm can be healed.  

We request a financial contribution of $20-$45 to support our work and help us better serve the community.  And, participation matters to us! You are enthusiastically welcomed to join even if you are unable or unwilling to give money at this time.
