A comment from a past participant of Foundations in Restorative Practices:
“I have found it far easier to avoid jumping into an emotionally driven response and instead be able to respond from a more empathetic, better-clarified place. I have also become quite clear within myself that peace, civility, etc. are where my heart lies.” 

You can view all our upcoming programs here. In addition, limited need-based scholarships are available for people who live or work in Waldo and Knox counties.

Want to get in touch? Chat with us via our website, email, call 207.338.8002 or stop by.  We’re located at 80 Belmont Ave./Rte. 3 in Belfast and love visitors.

All of our programs are open to the general public and are interactive and instructor-led. Online programs are not pre-recorded.

Continuing Education Units are available for all programs.
