In restorative justice programs,
victims of trauma establish facilitated goals for healing.
Victims are our first clients of solidarity.
But, our clients work on actively responding to punishing loss,
violations of what could be,
and should have been, peace.
Peace and justice supported by the client’s community,
justice and peace therapeutic systems,
positive faith communities and naturally sacred environments,
organic nutritional relationships.
In each of these relationships
between restoring justice mentors
and distressed victims,
and environments of peace and justice nurturing support,
we also describe
normative therapeutic relationships
found within Permaculture Design.
Permaculture clients feel victimized by pathological changes, issues
in homes and properties,
farms and gardens,
stinky lakes and eroding shorelines,
looking for remedies to help restore right relationships
with these climate and landscape offenses.
and lack of flavor
and unbalanced nutrition,
disproportionate shade and light,
and blighting neighbors,
diseased trees and unproductive flowers.
And, like restorative justice,
and contribute to both clients and offenders,
and, thereby, are capable of empathizing with both,
and are needed to resolve causes and effects of environmental trauma,
to actively respond to therapeutic needs of suffering clients.
In co-witnessing solidarity,
we discern how we might together restore polycultural outcome goals
through cooperative implementation plans,
with least competitive Win-Lose effort,
to improve Win-Win nutritional designs
of and by and for and with traumatized clients
longing to no longer know themselves as merely victims
of increasingly violent
and distressed climates
Internal ego climates
and external economic-ecological landscapes
with improving multicultural celebration potential together,
away from punishing monocultural distresses
Toxically competitive Win-Lose strategies
suboptimize Win-Win intent and commitment
of both Restorative Justice Advocates
and Permacultural Designers,
witnessing in solidarity with clients
feeling like victims
of society’s desecrating sins past.
Our cooperative business plans
emerge from this same therapeutic desire
to become both producers and consumers
of deep and wide nutritional and nurturing
restoration of meaning,
of healthy sustainability,
of resonant regenerativity,
of polyphonically wide aesthetics,
and yet deeply polycultural ethics
of multi-paradigmatic polypaths
Living and speaking restorative ecojustice
in ego peace with profoundly interdependent Win-Win ecosystems
Prime BiLateral Relationships,
Breathing in trusted Yang
to breathe out justifying YinYin,
wu-wei Tipping Points
from PermaCultural Design
through ReStoring EcoJustice Original Intent
toward Paradise UnCovered
to sacred humane producers and consumers
of ecological peace phylogeny outside
with ecopolitical health homology inside.
Restorative Justice is therapy for inside voices
while Permaculture Design has been ecotherapy for outside voices.
But all these voices express shared multicultural language
for healing past punishments and losses,
where Win-Win Paradise
for cooperative therapeutic hands.
