He is a leading advocate for consistent nonviolence and bringing the principles and practices of restorative justice to bear on the full range of social issues.
He is the author of Active Peace: A Mindful Path to a Nonviolent World.
Scott has been blessed with a wide range of experience and training. This includes a master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology and Ecopsychology, and professional experience in restorative justice, mediation, relationship coaching, mentoring youth in the criminal justice system, and guiding wilderness-based rites of passage trips. In all of these roles he has put restorative practices on the ground.
Scott trained as a peacemaker with the Colorado Peacemaker Institute (now the Engaged Mindfulness Institute) in 2006–2007. This is when he was introduced to meditation and the basic interpersonal skills and tools that have come to be so important to him. About this time he also began his training and volunteer work in restorative justice with the Longmont Community Justice Partnership and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. Scott served as interim coordinator for the Sheriff’s Office program for six months. Read More
