Crystal Blanton @ Sacred Harvest (Minnesota, USA)

This just in…Crystal Blanton will also be attending Sacred Harvest Festival running August 6-12th. She will be presenting the Restorative Justice Circle as well as two workshops.

Restorative Justice Circle: “Participate in a Restorative Justice Circle that reinforces the bonds of community and solidarity that were discussed in last year’s festival. Using our skills to maintain a supportive, empathetic and healthier community, we will engage in the restorative justice process of community building and healing. Having a cohesive community means we have to work to sustain it, sustaining our community means we actively engage in the process and maintenance. Be a part of another glimpse of the application of this process by being a part of the experience. (Note: you do not have to have been at last year’s restorative justice healing circle to participate).” from the posted article “Crystal Blanton – Restorative Justice #2 at Sacred Harvest Festival” http://harmonytribe.org/content/crystal-blanton-restorative-justice-2-sacred-harvest-festival

 

Workshop Details:

DIVERSITY WHAT?!?!  Discussions around diversity in Paganism;
With more discussions about differences in the Pagan community that have created hard lines and division, let take an opportunity to celebrate diversity and speak truth through beauty about our differences.  This workshop will be a formated and respectful forum to discuss the cultural diversity within Paganism and sensitivity to the many paths that come together to circle in the dance of spirituality and life.  Let’s create some balance to counteract the sadness and miscommunications that has been a result of so much discord in society.

Sustain, Renew and Practice; Healing Community Circle Part Deux
Participate in a Restorative Justice Circle that reinforces the bonds of community and solidarity that were discussed in last year’s festival.  Using our skills to maintain a supportive, empathetic and healthier community, we will engage in the restorative justice process of community building and healing.  Having a cohesive community means we have to work to sustain it, sustaining our community means we actively engage in the process and maintenance.  Be a part of another glimpse of the application of this process by being a part of the experience.  (Note: you do not have to have been at last year’s restorative justice healing circle to participate).

Circle Keeper Intensive
This is a part of a series that I will be offering to support the building of circle keepers with skills and tools for their local community.  This intensive will be packed with information around the restorative justice process and ways to use it in Pagan circles and groups; specifically focusing on some tools for facilitating as the circle keeper.  This workshop is not built to make you a professional mediator but it will give some accessible skills to support RJ style activities in your local groups.  It is a start to a developing series that will hopefully be offered in future mediums.  Handouts and resources will be made available.  Come ready to work and learn.
