All of us have to deal with conflict, violence and painful memories. This weekend tries to offer an introduction to Restorative Justice. This alternative approach to justice could give us tools to expand our understanding, to get started on a healing journey, and to rediscover balance, harmony and well-being in our lives and communities.
