Restorative Circle Process

Leading groups through Restorative Dialogue in Pennsylvania


Restorative Circle Process facilitators guide your group from dysfunction and hurt to reconnection and hope for your future together.

    Are you experiencing the pain of conflict in your organization, team or group and don’t know if it’s possible to move forward?

    Our trained facilitators can help guide you to communicate effectively and find healing for your group through restorative circles.

    The Restorative Circle Process

    Circle Process is a proven method of guiding groups through constructive communication while they sit in a circle. It is designed to give every participant a voice, reveal connections & differences, and engage participants in all their dimensions (emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual).  The circular structure slows down the usual pace of dialogue and ensures that the conversation is respectful, reflective, and productive.

    Restorative circles support healing among groups of all shapes and sizes including:
    • Congregations – leadership teams, classes, small groups
    • Businesses workplace staff, managers, leaders and volunteers
    • Community – neighborhood, coalitions, community development projects, town hall meetings and others
    • Government – leadership teams, agencies, departments, project development, town hall meetings
    • Schools & Universities leadership teams, faculty and staff teams, classes, student groups
    • Any other group – willing to sit down to speak, listen and take one step in a difficult conversation.

    What makes Circle Process effective?

    • Restorative justice principles address conflict and harm inclusively and relationally
    • Helps to build group ownership and accountability for outcomes
    • Helps to address harm transparently in an organization context
    • Enhances safety to share honestly around tough situations
    • Provides equal voice to all participants

    How does this work? 


    Contact Us

    Request services with this form or call us (below) to describe the situation. We will ask a series of questions to discern the “fit” of facilitation needed and the possibility of online or in-person dialogue.



    We will schedule one-hour intro meetings with major parties to better understand their specific concerns and prepare them for a joint process. Following that meeting, we will report our findings and schedule your joint circle.



    Experience the Circle Process with your group of 5-25 participants to make space for and move forward with a shared understanding, empathy, and intentions for the future.



    Advoz staff invite evaluation feedback from participants and a follow-up meeting to consider next steps.
