Comments04/04/2017 #15 Deb🐝 LangeDear @Steve Brady - yes! i have volunteered in South and West Africa, and stayed with Zulu people in home stays. there is another word, "Ubuntu" - means the same - i see you. Where I went, the people greet you with "Ubuntu" - I see you - instead of, "hi, how how are you" - which is pretty meaningless for most people in western society.04/04/2017 #14 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#11 #12 I am glad you did mention me. The concept of Sawbonna is transformational.
It is actually all about the respect that is exchanged when we listen to how someone experienced a situation, acknowledge 'see' how they felt, and work to bring a sense of continuation that things will flow forward with this new, shared, gained perspective in 'mind'
We modern types like to think of closure coming from the courts, but I know that true healing is what you describe - justice as a river flowing forward with community intent that past mistakes are learned from.04/04/2017 #11 Steve Brady#1 Dear Ali...What an honour ....To share insights with you! As you commented with @Harvey Lloyd, I believe that the ethos behind Restorative Justice is best embodied in the Zulu term Sawbonna, "I see you". I'm not a businessman, but this must be a liberating, creative, and prosperous paradigm for relationships between businesses and clients. Please note that I am indebted to Margot Van Slutyman for teaching me this concept.04/04/2017 #9 Steve Brady#5 Harvey, your comment is music to my eyes. I feel like I'm on a journey of discovery. I'd like to journey with you! I find that your comments "push" or stimulate a search for more understanding and clarity. You're right when you note that my Restorative Justice writing has its roots in Education culture, and recently more widely in traditional Judicial Processes. However, I feel the "story" is much wider. I don't believe "Justice" is a static entity. It's more like a river. I value your exploration with me. Grab your canoe!03/04/2017 #8 Steve Brady#7 Hi Deb, thank you for your encouragement. It means a lot to me. I feel like Ive got "gestating" content within me, being formed, latent for birth. The encouragement and acceptance I am blessed with here at beBee is like an incubator, or even better metaphorically, a "womb"! You're a blessing Deb. Please feel free to offer advice regarding buzz composition and clarity. Epistemology is very important to me. That's why the rheomodal approach to language is such an important paradigm to me. I love creative, beautiful, and liberating language. Sadly though I find that language can also obscure reality. Language as a "map" is not the "territory". That's why the depth of engagement you've always encouraged is so vital. We all need each other in various ways.03/04/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich@Steve Brady - I have reread this stimulating post a number of times. The concept of re-storying is so important to all that is wrong in our modern society and the way it seems poised to just continue on a worsening trajectory.
While I continue to marinate on all the ramifications of how to extend my ability to listen to and voice multiple stories in context, this is am important buzz to re-circulate in our feeds today.27/03/2017 #5 Harvey Lloyd#3 I believe that this concept may have further potential in our writing and our ongoing customer, team and leadership narrative, @Ali Anani. Although i sense that @Steve Brady is discussing a restorative nature of our criminal justice system, i know we all run into the negative story within our professional lives. This process may present some opportunities to our processes within a proactive paradigm. Catching the negative early and introducing RJ may not just resolve issues but also redirect the narrative.
I am reading with interest as any process that would assist at the deeper levels of justice and the more professional levels of our livelihood can only make us better leaders.27/03/2017 #4 Deb🐝 Lange@Steve Brady great post. I am a David Bohm fan - especially his work on circle dialogue which I learnt to facilitate some time ago. sitting in a circle looking at the centre listening to people speak creates collective conversation where people can share their stories and be heard.Another powerful process in restorative justice.The act of listening, not judging is so powerful. The act of listening to all stories is so powerful. Keep up the great work.27/03/2017 #2 Harvey LloydConflict resolution may learn something from the processes demonstrated here. RJ seems to offer a forum of discussion that would allow managers and leaders a way to open up dialogue in fine tuning teams, departments and growth. Possibly even within customer communications.27/03/2017 #1 Ali AnaniAn amazing post like this one deserves our great attention. Sometimes the vagueness of a word in the title may discourage the reading of a buzz. In my case it attracted me to find out the heck what it means.
Rheomodes for may is visualization and transformation of words and stories so that new perspectives may emerge. Thank you @Steve Brady for teaching me a new way of giving words an action by re-story them. Shared proudly
