New Hive: Toxicity at work

New Hive: Toxicity at work

Toxicity at work: Nobody can say didn’t see it or suffer it in any way. It seems that toxic people create toxic environments and vice-versa. A lot has been written about the issue, but still is present in our day-to-day lives. Together with Ali...

The Beauty of Rheomodes

Image Credit: Jakub Rostkowski If you're like me, when you first saw the title of this post: The Beauty of Rheomodes, I think you can be excused for thinking, "What the heck is a Rheomode?" I think it's a strange word that sounds like it's a...

Dear 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.

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.

Pass me my lever, quickly!

There's a famous quote attributed to Archimedes: "Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world."  (1) Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, philosopher, scientist and...

Hi Harvey, sorry for the delay with my reply. I definitely don't see you as a heckler! I think discussion, banter even, is an important part of learning. When I present RJ training, having a "heckler" or a vocal cynic in the audience can be helpful in clarifying the content have to present, and "thickening my skin". One thing I'd love to note regarding your comment is that RJ can be implemented as a "whole package" not just a first step. I'm drafting a blog entitled "Nuts and Bolts" in which I'll offer a broader view of RJ and the neuroscience that underlies much of the potentiality I've observed many times. Education has traditionally emphasised cognition, as exemplified in the often stated: Was that a good choice? As Daniel Goleman puts it "Cognition is like like a boat on an ocean of emotion" In the blog, I'll cite all this, Harvey. Having mentioned all this though, I am still very interested in your comments and observations. I really appreciate your interest and encouragement as I have a go at this writing thing.

Thanks Claire L Cardwell. RJ interventions are like intimate "Truth and Reconciliation" meetings! The good news is that RJ is being implemented into many schools. I think though that RJ still has a way to go in ensuring high quality Facilitator training, coaching and care for them. Also, the literature I've read highlights that "Restorative" can mean different things to different people. Understanding and implementing this is a vital stage on the journey for all of us to 'do Justice better". Thanks for your comment 😊

Great concept Steve Brady - of having an intimate 'truth and reconciliation meeting' all seated in a circle. Powerful stuff. Wish that they had this in schools.
