Unitive justice is a system for creating a parallel model of justice based on love, not retribution or getting even. Unitive justice is grounded on certain principles that emphasize the following:
· Community strength and self-empowerment.
· Consensual participation and equality/inclusiveness.
· Values, such as trust, honesty, discernment and lovingkindness.
· Achieving mutually beneficial outcomes.
The circle facilitation process being taught is based largely on the Restorative Circle model developed by Dominic Barter. It is a non-judgmental, non-hierarchical, non-punitive process for addressing conflict within the community where the conflict arose. Using episodes of conflict to discover the underlying epicenter of brokenness out of which the conflict arose, root causes are addressed

UNITIVE JUSTICE THEORY
By comparing 12 structures of our established punitive justice system with 12 structural elements of unitive justice, we escape our mistaken belief that punitive justice is the best we can do. This workshop teaches how to access the tools for creating justice as love.
Participants receive a preliminary copy (pdf) of Sylvia’s upcoming book, Unitive Justice: A Systems Approach to Justice as Love.
