Comments27/03/2017 #16 Steve Brady#15 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 😊20/03/2017 #13 Harvey Lloyd#12 The environment must be offset by the strength of parenting. I grew up in a rural environment and had strong parents that prepared me for the world. I sense in our world today the environment has eclipsed the strength in parenting. Core values are assumed and suggested that education enhances them. I see parents everyday that struggle with this notion of core values in their children were inherited. Part of our generational issues are the fact that we are not handing down these core values.
Where these core values exist i would suggest that the RJ system would work quite well. Where they don't i would assume core values would need to be instilled first. But that is a debate that will rage for eternity.20/03/2017 #12 Steve Brady#11 Hi Harvey, I appreciate your interest in Restorative Justice (RJ) and my foray into the world of blogging or "buzzing". RJ is still emergent and developing, and your comments regarding environment are critical to understanding why people do the things they do. On occasions I have thought that if I was born in a city suburb where gangs and violence were an issue, instead of being born in a coastal city to middle class parents, I may have had a very different life. I could be typing my reply to you while sitting in my jail cell. Thank you for being willing to be tagged in future buzzes. I certainly appreciate your perspectives.20/03/2017 #11 Harvey LloydThanks for the tag @Steve Brady. This sounds like a worthy effort and the first i have heard of such a project. I do believe that many actions happen and folks don't realize the ripple effect they cause through their community or to others.
Most of my studies inside the cognitive behavior of others and myself have lead me to believe that the environment is the root cause of such incidents whereby others are hurt. Clearly we are all born with specific bents towards life and others. But the environment has such a great influence on our behavior.
I do believe that RJ has its place in our judiciary system. But there is a ground swell of environmentally lead personas that giving people the "right" to harm others because of different views, appearances and professions. This is one of the group think spin off symptoms.
I look forward to reading about RJ in your upcoming posts. Please continue to tag me. I find any new approaches to deterring social anxiety welcome.20/03/2017 #10 Steve Brady#1 Hi Deb. Thanks for your reply....and your your last sentence was music for my eyes! To raise awareness of Restorative Justice, or any form of justice that brings healing accountability, hears and cares for those harmed, and ultimately helps us all to build a more humane society, is my primary goal. I also want to share the passion I have for this type of reform. My personal view, and that of RJ4ALL is that we don't seek to be abolitionist regarding conventional justice administration. There will always be those that for whatever reason need to be incarcerated for the safety of the community. However, I also believe that even the most damaged of us can be healed, at least to some degree. The evidence is stacked against the efficacy of retributive, or punitive justice, but reform in schools, organisations, and our courts still has a journey ahead of it.20/03/2017 #9 Steve Brady#2 Thanks for your encouragement, Deb. I'm enjoying my initial forays into the art and science of producing buzzes/blogs. I agree wholeheartedly with your comments regarding reconnecting with our senses. I'm a classic case of my childhood and teenage years somehow turning me into a head being carried around on a body! I'm under "reconstruction" now..20/03/2017 #7 Steve Brady#5 Thanks so much for your encouragement Sara. Thank you for sharing your experience with therapy and psychodrama. I'd appreciate any feedback you ever have for me (both positive and helpfully critical!!).
I guess that like me you have found role plays and psychodramas to be such a powerful way of engaging people with "inner and outer" truths they weren't possibly even aware of..20/03/2017 #5 Sara JacoboviciGreat piece @Steve Brady, great work. I was around when Restorative Justice was first being discussed and workshops were being offered. I attended a workshop and was once asked to act as "witness" when a person trained in RJ came to my work place for an employee. As a therapist, I have also done some training and have co-led psychodrama groups. And the same with the exercise, which van der Kolk calls a “structure” but which is also known as psychomotor therapy, developed by Albert Pesso. The reason I am mentioning all this Steve, is to acknowledge the great work you are doing as someone familiar with the topic. I find your first post on the subject well written and communicated. I look forward to your future posts.20/03/2017 #3 Deb🐝 LangeWell done @Steve Brady yes the body can sense what is going on when we start to notice through our senses. Role plays, improvisation, many doing, being activities enable this kind of sensory awareness to surface. It is far more effective than "just" talking about the behaviour, or having a lecture. Being, sensing, doing, feeling, noticing, voicing, smelling, touching, intuiting are all visceral, hence change our sense of being.20/03/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThese sort of role-playing scenarios are fantastic teachers. Thank you, @Steve Brady, for a great example that might allow someone to step out of their shoes as social media harmer into the emotions of someone shamed via excessively personal critiques for simply writing about a topic important to them or their business.
The concept of sitting in a circle, allowing everyone affected to voice how they felt is tremendously powerful. I've never been convinced that punishment did much, especially as far removed as it is from the 'crime' based on the setup of our current legal system. But I know that restaging can allow people on both sides of the action to have a better feeling for how the events that unfolded resonated within everyone, even bystanders.
I'll be watching out for a lot more information on how to bring more restorative justice to the world.

- 16/03/2017How to raise your vibration, the simple truth. By Max Carter
In the fewest words possible.
Embrace life with unconditional love.
What does that mean?
When one loves without conditions one gives love selflessly to all one encounters.
Love has many faces and fear is the dark mirror of love.
Love is a fierce defender that will rage in defense of the weak and the long suffering.
Love mourns and loves the sweetness for the mourning knowing it would’t have hurt so much had so much joy not been achieved.
Love is patient to seek understanding and passes no judgement.
Love is merciful and will be quick with the brutal truth to end the long suffering of deceit.
Love knows no deception and will call it out every time love is met by it.
Love cannot turn a blind eye to suffering and do nothing about it.
Love is a friend to all and seeks to reveal the connection already there.
Love is considerate and thinks before love speaks or acts.
Love is honesty in all things.
Love is not always nice and can be down right vicious in the face of deception.
Love forgets we have an identity/ego and a life to think about protecting and acts selflessly.
This is unconditional love.

Comments13/04/2017 #1 Sara JacoboviciVery nice post and interview @David Chislett. Many take aways. Two that stand out are:
1.About creativity: "The first thing John said was that if you want to do anything creatively, don’t waste your time learning how someone else did what they did. ‘If you wanna start a Music revolution, please don't know what you're doing,’ he said. ‘Don’t go for lessons, don’t learn other people’s techniques, don’t copy anything.’ "
2. "In our time of Idols and celebrity branding, it is nice to hear someone talk about their creativity, which has created their celebrity, as an entirely collaborative process that relies on the presence of others."

That you can do
See what’s really in you
Comments25/03/2017 #1 Claire L CardwellThe Love is Free the Sex you Pay for by Max J Carter
I’m a Hippy with a Rock ‘N’ Roll heart.
I look back at the free love movement from decades ago and I can clearly see why it failed.
Today I wander about and talk with many and the common theme is psychedelic drugs and taking that kind of trip to expand consciousness and awareness. For me total sobriety is what most describe an acid trip as.
I was born with that total awareness.
The drugs are a cheat and a shortcut to use instead of doing the work. I’ve spoken with many who have taken so much LSD that it has forever changed them and not in helpful ways.
Cosmic Alchemy 101.
To receive one must give.
When we shortcut it we give up chunks of ourselves to what or whoever we are using to shortcut it.
Some use sex.
In fact there was a guy, you know someone who will fuck you because they can, that was selling sex as a way to super-consciousness with the idea that a man should only orgasm once a year.
