Welcome to the Restorative Practices Alliance
We are a global trans-disciplinary community and movement whose objective is to support superior clinical outcomes in medicine and mental health by uniting the newest (neurophysiology and data science) and oldest (ancestral awareness) healing technologies.
We focus on optimizing wellbeing, and the diagnosis and treatment of stress-related disorders, including anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, sleep difficulties, gastro-intestinal disorders, and certain auto-immune diseases.
Our (r)evolutionary clinical treatment platform, as well as our books, posters, and live and online courses are designed to transform the practice of the healing arts.
"This work feels like a foundational piece of wellness and overall health that I feel has long been missing from the medical conversation. I love how it is based in the science of how we function- it is very practical, very direct. I’ve witnessed its effectiveness with my patients. These are places that I don’t think traditional medicine or mental health has succeeded in reaching, and I find this work extremely inspiring and hopeful in its implications for healing."

"I'm just a little bit in awe of the deep learning platform...The client I have who has been working with it three weeks just told me, 'There's been a huge change. There's been huge movement.' There are a lot of people out there trying to make a change and they don't know how to do it. I think this platform would be so beautiful for them. The way it follows people's interests gives people a different kind of agency in their own healing."

"The Restorative Practices program challenged me in ways which were both 'eye-opening' and 'heart-opening'. I learned a tremendous amount about the essential qualities of being connected to myself and the participants, and the difficulties of doing so with ease. Despite these challenges, I felt 100% supported by the wisdom of the participants and the skills of the facilitators. This course is not for the faint of heart, though it will surprise you with the growth potential that you didn’t think possible."
