“A Place in the Conversation” is committed to working towards the restoration and transformation of individuals and communities so they may enjoy life to the full.
Partnering with individuals and communities we seek to facilitate the journey of discerning a path toward peaceful resolution, restored relationships and transformation so they may enjoy life to the full.
Peaceful Resolution: We believe in honestly seeking to identify sources of conflict and obstacles to growth, then addressing them with openness and integrity in order to find a positive resolution for all involved parties.
Healthy Relationships: We believe in the importance of positive working relationships to ensure the health of an individual and organization.
Discernment: We believe in discernment, taking the time for reflection in quiet and stillness in order to find truth and direction for an individual or organization.
Importance of the Individual: We value and respect each individual involved in the process of relational restoration and transformation. Each person is to be considered as essential and important in the journey toward the goal of restoration and transformation.
Honesty of Emotion: We believe individuals involved in the process of relational restoration and transformation need to acknowledge and understand their personal emotions and then freely express those feelings to other involved parties in a safe and open way; while allowing others the freedom to openly express their feelings.
Confidentiality: We value the ability to share openly and honestly knowing all the individuals involved in the process will respect the opinions of others and hold them in confidence unless given permission to do otherwise.
Embracing the Journey: We believe that restoration and transformation of relationship is a process not a destination. The journey cannot be defined by predictable stages, limited by a time table or pre-determined goals. The final goals can, and often will, evolve as the individual or community progresses on the journey.
