Who is the Community Repair and Support Team (CReST) and what do they do?

Naropa’s CReST is a trained university collective committed to supporting and guiding community members towards repair of fractured relationships through restorative practices and principles.  In our efforts towards community and interpersonal repair, CReST utilizes a Cultural Transformation Framework, which draws upon contemplative principles and practices, and an integrated anti-oppression lens. CRest is an available resource for all community members who wish to engage in conversation around navigating conflict.


CReST’s Mission

CReST aspires to restore each person’s right relationship to the Naropa community with compassion, awareness, and care.   As a community, we need to hold awareness of the wounds of cultural conditioning and systemic injustice, and equally, the need for individual and collective accountability.
