Training for healing, restorative justice

Want to learn what you can do in your work and personal life to bring healing and peace to our communities? Consider signing up for the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute’s one-day training Jan. 12 in Minneapolis. This session, called “Star-LITE,” focuses on psychological trauma healing, resilience, restorative justice and nonviolent conflict transformation.

We’re hoping to take a group of church members to this multicultural, multi-faith training. And we’re thinking it could provide an avenue to move forward in our church’s racial truth and reconciliation work. We encourage you to learn more and sign up by Jan. 5 (space is limited) at There is a $99 fee.

The one-day “STAR-Lite” session is a condensed version of the institute’s Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience training. It builds on restorative justice principles and practices to help people:

  • break free from revenge
  • heal trauma
  • reconnect with others to satisfy our basic human needs for justice
  • become agents of positive change.
