Sponsor: Central East Region of the UUA, UU Church of Akron, Fairlawn, OH

This event has been canceled Covenant is the silk that joins UU congregations, communities, and individuals together in a web of interconnection. The practice of promising to walk together is the precious core of our creedless faith. But what do we do when covenants are broken?

Restorative practices, which involve the skilled use of Circles, provide an opportunity to identify and address harms, restore relationships and mend community.

Grounded in the practice of Compassionate Communication, this training will give an overview of restorative practices, skills and will include hands-on Circle exercises to use what you’ve learned. We especially encourage Youth Leaders, Committees on Ministry and Church Boards to attend.

Restorative Practices are grounded in familiar practices:

  • Youth Touch Groups, Covenant Groups, Chalice Circles, etc.
  • Non-Violent or Compassionate Communication

For Youth and Adults!

Value of Circles:

Leadership is Shared
Grounded in Mutuality
Deep Listening
Personal Connection
Based on Respect and Accountability

Youth are welcome to attend this event. A youth must attend with their parent or guardian or attend with a completed permission form and a sponsor. Download the form as a pdf or word document.
