Event Details:

Natureza Gabriel Kram presents the Restorative Practices Neuro-developmental model that is being applied clinically in a range of mental health, public health, and medical programs to remediate trauma and stress-related dis-ease, and to activate the root drivers of wellbeing.

For the past 18 years, Gabriel Kram and 50+ colleagues have been synthesizing this neuro-developmental model of wellbeing that unites cutting-edge neurophysiology and data science with contemplative and ancestral awareness practices from around the world. At the heart of this work is the hard-won awareness that connection is the foundation of wellbeing.

Kram will present: the origins of the model in a mindfulness study that rendered unanticipated findings; the genesis of the model, which was crowd-sourced with input from 5,000 wellness professionals; and the model itself, which proposes a connection phenomenology of wellbeing,  

Participants will be given time to ask questions during the Q&A portion of the lecture. Opportunity to experience the application of the model to one’s own life is offered in the Contemplation by Design Summit Workshop on Saturday, Oct. 15.  In addition to registering for this keynote, you are invited to register for the Summit Workshop titled “A Polyvagally-Informed Approach to Mindful Awareness.”  

Natureza Gabriel Kram is a connection phenomenologist.  He is Founder and CEO of Hearth Science, Convener of the Restorative Practices Alliance, and Co-Founder of the Academy of Applied Social Medicine.  His new book, Restorative Practices of Wellbeing, unites cutting-edge neurophysiology and ancestral awareness practices, sharing more than 300 practices for personal, community, and ecological thriving. 

Restorative Practices of Wellbeing is part of the free Contemplation by Design Summit, Oct. 9 - 16 and Oct. 28 - Nov. 2, 2022.
