Why Healing & Restorative Justice?

Take one week of free class with us

We are living in a time when people are hurting and experiencing trauma. People are not only seeking answers but clarity on how to navigate in a world where so many people are hurt and lost. We are spiritual beings having a human experience and it is important to reconnect to who we are.

Healing work can reduce anxiety, improve sleep, restore balance, support physical healing, and provide peace. It can open up a door for you to connect with your spiritual side. There has to be an openness of the person to actively engage in this process.

Restorative Justice is not a new practice and has recently been reintroduced as a method of addressing harm. It allows a space for parties involved to be engaged in a participatory process that seeks to repair harm for those involved and open a path to community healing. Restorative Justice can be seen and experienced in a host of environments such as the criminal legal system, the educational system, faith-based communities, and communities in general.
