Featured Mediator Section

Holla!

Just a reminder that Wednesday is our Featured Mediator Day so we feature a number of our Registered Panel Mediators from various regions. To feature, you must be part of our panel and your updated bio must be in by 12pm on Tuesday

The feature goes out to all our subscriber lists, my blog and our Social Media Pages on Facebook, Linked-In and Twitter

Please also look out for this weeks feature on the spiral of violence which teaches Restorative Justice mediators a model of understanding the genesis of violence and we start building an awakening for practitioners to start mobilizing at the source of violence rather than just reactive violence and redemptive violence.

Look out also, for ongoing updates on current matters and also training

Peace
