A Center for Restorative Solutions

Serving the Greater Seattle Area

I am bursting with excitement to offer this first time ever calling together of those of you who have had some exposure to Restorative Practices and Nonviolent Communication, and who want to bring these practices more fully into your lives, communities and workplaces. This will be a creative learning lab with mentorship. Everyone will give and receive learning and support while engaging in the experience of holding all the needs in the community that forms. Are you curious to find out more?

The program will involve a one day in person circle, followed by bi-weekly on line sessions. Together we will determine what we learn and how we step into the world with the work. We will embrace restorative methodology in all we do, we will stretch ourselves in the direction we want to go, gently, in alignment with RP and NVC. If you are curious, read on for more detail....

Mentorship & Collaboration 1 Year Program

Kick-off on Sunday, Sep 22, 2019

Restorative Practice & Compassionate Communication

Requests for mentorship in RJ and NVC have led me to call this learning community together. My own experience has borne out that, aligned/ attuned community support leads me to shine brighter. The longer I work and deepen my practice of NVC and RP, the more I trust the support of consistent community coming together that I can tap into for wisdom, drop into for nourishment and self-care, and which provides a space where I can hold myself accountable in ways that support my growth, and reduce the impact I have on others. I have come to trust these restorative ways of being together, and they have transformed my work out in the world. I am wanting to share them with you. The focus will be on how to build trust and community through a Restorative Justice framework in a laboratory we create, which will ripple out into whatever community you are working with. Could be your family, school, workplace, broader community. Some sessions will be experiential learning, others will be a lab where you get to bring your community discussion to the group and we will process how and engage with your particular passion, considering restorative culture and to engage with restorative system building. Some sessions will be sharing our learnings and mis-takes and unpacking what happened so we all deepen our wisdom. What is increasingly important is a power analysis, and we will be working with that throughout- what does de-centering mean? How do we draw attention with care to implicit bias and the work of liberating all of us from structural and social oppression. I am not an expert, and I am committed to doing this work. It will be here. Perhaps some of you will group together to try some community advocacy support... This will be your lab, I will bring my skills, tools and experience to contribute and support- let's make it what we can...

We kick off on Sunday September 22nd with a full day in circle, creating our own Restorative container. The community will determine whether or when we will meet again in person. We will have bi-weekly 2 hour online sessions, on the first and third Sunday evening of the month. Individuals and groups may meet more frequently for empathy and brain trust support.


If you absolutely cannot make the bi-weekly time, and you are really excited about this possibility, please email Pam, Pam.Orbach@EmpoweringConnection.com.

More details about September 22nd will be forwarded to you after registration
