    Hello Global Family,

    Here is a 2:33 min video, shot live from outside the Santa Fe Youth Prison, this past Tuesday night, before co-creating a Restorative practice of meditation with Native American, Chicana, and Hispanic female bodied teens that speaks to why going to the Nesting Peace Summit and to hone Infrastructures of Peace to Sustain Diversity, continues to be meaningful:

    Global gatherings like the Regeneration Festival, centered in prayer and meditation, may have many unmeasurable & unseen results impacting the compassionate thought vibrations entering our default, unconsciously co-created justice systems. Various kinds of meditation being offered in jails, schools, prisons, and militaries is wonderful news and is certainly one thing going well in the regeneration of justice systems in North America. Restorative Justice practitioner, Marshall Rosenberg, says there are two kinds of social change: "rescuing babies thrown in the river and preventing babies from being thrown in at the source of the river." Meditation with teens in youth prisons could be seen as a way to try to "rescue the babies thrown in the river" and its an option people inside will choose, to save themselves and find freedom from the inside, when its forcibly taken away on the outside.

    We will apprentice with Dominic Barter, who will be hosting the Pre-Summit "Walking Towards Conflict: Intro to Restorative Systems" at the Nesting Peace Summit, that if pre-meditation on what an infrastructure takes, to Restoratively sustain diversity, happens in conjunction with the conscious co-creation of community justice systems, we can "prevent more babies from being thrown in the water up by the mouth of the river." Dom shares this in his Restorative System untraining & co-learning events and hoping that our paricipation will nourish a contribution to a world where no one is admitted to the hospital due to violence, for at least one day.

    With Great Love,
