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 world view and embodied practice that restores the possibility of a world where right relationship can flourish.
