Help your patients and clients turn on the root drivers of wellbeing through the marriage of Polyvagal Theory and ancient awareness technologies.

A force multiplier for your wellness practice.

We help wellness professionals improve client outcomes and accelerate treatment efficacy while streamlining workflows and winning back your time.



ACCELERATE TREATMENT EFFICACY

We help you move toward desired treatment outcomes more quickly and effectively by:

EXTEND: Extend your reach into client’s daily lives to support them between sessions

EDUCATE: Provide extraordinary educational scaffolding to optimize your clients' receptivity to your interventions

DIAGNOSE: Use polyvagally-informed diagnostic tools to tailor your interventions to your clients autonomic state

ENGAGE: Engage your clients in their own growth process outside of their sessions with you

TAILOR: Tailor neural exercises to respond to client's particular symptoms while aligning them with what is important to your clients

We can help you accelerate and deepen treatment efficacy so that your clients get deeper personalized treatment without you needing to spend more time.

WIN BACK YOUR TIME

SIMPLIFY: No more hunting for resources, homework, mindfulness exercises, enrichment activities for clients

STREAMLINE: Streamline workflows: track your patients autonomic state and growth edges, monitor their progress

CUSTOMIZE: Weave our educational films, frameworks, and practices into your treatment plans to make them interactive and individualized.

STRUCTURE: Define stages of treatment, educational, and practice goals.

MAINTAIN: Graduate clients into longer-term support with less frequent touchpoints as they improve.

Whether you want to recover time to focus on growing your business, creating greater work/life balance, or playing Mahjong, we hold more pieces of your intervention design and treatment planning process so that you can set them down.

Extend.

At the end of a session, your client feels great. Or at least better. It may be the high point of their week. And for the next 24-48 hours, they are generally in the glow of that session. Afterwhich, often, there is a decay. We extend your reach into the daily texture of your client's life, providing in-between session support in those moments when your client needs something to lean on, or is experiencing distress. This provides touchpoints of continuity, increasing connection and decreasing distress between sessions.


Educate.

Our patients and clients often don't understand how their bodies and minds work. They don't understand their nervous systems, or their stress responses. If they did, they could work more successfully with you as a partner in advancing their own wellbeing. Leverage our extraordinary global faculty of 55 experts from 25 disciplines of wellbeing and 22 cultures to educate them so that they become active participants in their healing journey with you.


Diagnose.

Dr. Stephen Porges' landmark Polyvagal Theory clarifies the way that safety and threat shape our autonomic state in ways that tune our interior worlds, bodies, emotions, thoughts, worldviews, and behaviors. Use our proprietary polyvagally-informed assessment tools to identify your client's dominant responses to stress and threat, and attune neural exercises to the present moment state of their nervous systems for deeper efficacy.


Engage.

By carefully tracking your client’s growth edges, the platform can provide targeted neural exercises that meet them right at their developmental edges, in ways that are deeply personally relevant to them, helping to get them engaged in their own growth process. This turns on a virtuous cycle that strengthens their engagement, and gets them more invested in moving forward. It also dimensionalizes your engagement with them by bringing more of the texture of their lived experience into sessions.


Tailor.

Have you ever met two people who were exactly alike? Of course not. Each of us is snowflake unique. And so, even if we have the same kinds of symptoms, our neurodevelopment, family of origin, class, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and geography, not to mention what we care about, our passions, and our interests, is going to shape what is important to us, and how we heal. Our built-from-scratch treatment platform is designed from the ground up as a choose-your-own adventure. The more you and your patient know about who they are and what they are looking for, the more we can tailor the platform precisely to their needs and interests.

Win back your time.

We are here to help you diagnose and treat, to help simplify and streamline your intervention design, treatment planning, and implementation so that you can focus your energy on providing the best possible experience to your clients when you are working with them. Our goal is to support your ease, and help you win back your time, so that you can use it to grow your business, have greater work/life balance, or spend more time doing the things you need to do to nourish yourself so that you can be of service to those you help.


Personalized, precision, predictive wellbeing.

The Ancestral Future of Wellness

How many times have you been in session with a client and wished that you could assign a precise piece of homework–either a specific bit of psycho-education, or a targeted practice–to address building a particular skill?

Maybe it was a mindfulness skill. Maybe it was an active listening, or a communications skill. Maybe it was a self-care skill. Or something involving sensory integration, or interoception, or relating across difference, or authenticity. Or maybe you wanted them to understand a psycho-educational concept. How their stress response works, for example. Or the most useful mindset around behavior change. Or the importance of their own engagement in their growth process. How many times have you had the awareness that if they just had a little piece of the right information, or conceptual framework, or neural exercise, or restorative practice–it would move them in the direction of healing?

What if there was a place that offered masterclasses in everything from self-care to mindfulness to anti-racism to deep nature connection to the way we use language to the science of behavior change? What if, working with your client, you could identify their critical growth edges and target practices directly to those? Now there is.

Working with a team of the world’s leading experts on Connection and Wellbeing, including more than 55 advisors with over 1,500 years of experience, including our Honorary Chair of Neurophysiology, Dr. Stephen Porges, PhD., Developer of the Polyvagal Theory, and the world’s leading expert on the relationship between the Autonomic Nervous System and behavior, we have assembled a proprietary cloud-based learning platform to augment your wellness practice. And we’ve already tested it with over 1,000 clients.

As a curator on the platform, you will work with your clients to assess their connection strengths and deficits, their distress responses, and their symptoms, and then together develop a tailored plan of educational trainings and sequences of neural exercises to address your agreed-upon objectives.

We built the platform from scratch.

After spending two years meeting with the best learning platform companies in the world. Because they couldn’t wrap their heads around what we were building. Better if they’d tried to wrap their hearts.

The premise of our learning platform, which is build into its DNA, is that we remember things because they are relevant to us, not because someone else told us they should be. We are passionate when we have skin in the game, when we can see and feel how an idea or a practice matters in our day-to-day lives. We spent seven years having conversations with over 5,000 wellness professionals to crowd-source our practice model. We are actively using it with over 1,000 clients.

1) Map your client's growth edges.

Offer proprietary assessments. Map their connection assets, their distress styles. Create a personalized developmental landscape so they can see where they are and how they want to grow.

2) Discover relevant practices.

Assign targeted neural exercises–we call them ‘Restorative Practices’.

Work with your client, through assessment, and your listening together, to find the most relevant practices from them to engage. There are hundreds of video-based practices to choose from. Every practice will show them every other related practice on the model, so once they find something relevant, they can fully dive in.

3) Educate with training content

Leverage our educational films– to educate your clients, to provide context and story. Teach them about the stress response, the mindbody connection, Polyvagal Theory, Mindfulness, Deep Nature Connection, the importance of Language, Healthy Relationships, and Anti-Racism. Let the films provide a context for dialogue and discussion in your sessions.


4) Leverage our analog assets

We've written a full-color book with more than 150 images, designed by award-winning book designer Kevin Barrett Kane, Principal Book Designer at Stanford University Press, that describes more than 300 restorative practices of wellbeing & created an interactive poster of the Polyvagal Theory with Dr. Porges. Both of these function as analog apps to the deep learning platform, putting it at your clients fingertips in their homes, and in your office.

The next frontier in wellness is physiological.

Sculpt your Nervous System.

Neural exercise. The next frontier in wellbeing: tailored neural exercise utilizing applied mindfulness to target neuroplastic changes in client physiology.

Our nervous systems are plastic, sculpted through use. We have developed what is likely the world’s most sophisticated training system for your Autonomic Nervous System: the mind-body system implicated in stress responses, underlying trauma, and undergirding wellbeing.

  • Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, MD, MPH, FAAP
    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 use the tools we are learning in Restorative Practices every single day. With myself, with my family, with my clients. Everybody. Every day.

    I’m not even sure how to talk about the healing I experienced in ordinary language. Things happened in my body when we were practicing together that I’ve never experienced before. At the end of the second day I felt more relaxed and settled than I’ve ever felt. Unbelievable.

    The Restorative Practices training has been exactly what I’m looking for in the next step of personal and professional development. The ways in which neuroscience, direct practice, systems thinking, nature connection, and self-exploration are woven together has made room for me to be more skilled, present, and nuanced in my work and in my life.

    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.

    After years of facilitating leadership groups for resilience and wellbeing with my background in holistic wellbeing, I was completely blown away with the heart and spirit of this cohort/community in Restorative Practices.I was longing to meet real people who have real conversations about real things in the real world. I noticed my own armour/mask dissolving and I recovered huge chunks of my own heart which was fragmented and numbed through years of protection from covert discrimination and injustice which I had accepted as part of my life. It was an incredibly healing experience... I notice my energy is flowing once again and am still integrating and learning. A deep bow and feeling blessed is the only appropriate response here.
