Excited to announce my new book, Being Restorative (Bauhan Publishing). The book is available for pre-order and will ship in late March.

While restorative justice refers to a set of principled responses to harm centered on healing, often in a legal context, and restorative practice extends those responses to other contexts such as schools and the workplace, restorative being embeds connection, compassion, belonging, and accountability into everyday life. In this collection of essays, Leaf Seligman—restorative practitioner, circle-keeper, educator, itinerant preacher, and advocate for tenderness—reflects on a worldview and embodied practice that restores the possibility of a world where the right relationship can flourish.

I’ll post events here as I schedule them.
