Peacebuilding through Mindfulness Practice

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2020, 2:30 - 3:30 PM

True peacebuilding requires human encounter through face-to-face dialogue among people in conflict, not simply the actions of court systems or politicians. This approach is different from conventional courses or training seminars on peacebuilding and dialogue, which are highly cognitive, problem solving oriented, and focused on increased intellectual understanding of the complexity of the presenting issues.

Mark Umbreit serves on the faculty of the Center for Spirituality & Healing in the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota teaching courses on Peacebuilding Through Mindfulness Practice, and Forgiveness & Healing. Umbreit also serves as a Visiting Professor at the Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee teaching a course on Peacemaking and Spirituality. He has provided technical assistance and training in support of restorative justice initiatives and victim offender mediation/conferencing programs in hundreds of communities in the U.S. and many countries. Umbreit’s multi-site and multi-national research has contributed significantly to restorative justice policy development in the U.S. and other countries, as well as providing resource
materials and guidance to practitioners.
