A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

Celebrating the Third Biennial Restorative Circles Conference

 

July’s Restorative Circles (RC) Conference hosted by Culture’s Edge at Earthaven brought together about 30 Restorative Justice and Nonviolent Communication practitioners from around the world to strengthen the network of resources for deep, global societal change, starting with right where we are. Using Open Space technology, the conference sessions were collaboratively curated on site. Sessions included: “notes from the field” of RC educators and practitioners, “semi-simulated circle” practice sessions, discussions about dealing with trauma and other hardships met in this work, and using RC with children and in families. The Conference enhanced the growing connections between those who’ve been working together over the past six years and those new to the group. If you’re interested in being a part of the planning and design for the next Restorative Circles Conference in 2021, email the Culture’s Edge staff at: .

There’s nothing like experiencing ecovillage life first hand, but taking a virtual tour of Earthaven is a close second! 

The tour highlights ways in which Earthaven is striving to be a holistic, sustainable culture. The introductory overview tour examines the concept of sustainability at Earthaven through social, ecological, and economic lenses. Not only will you get a glimpse of what has worked through time, but also hear about what has been challenging. And you will have a chance to ask questions!
