The world of the future will be one in which our measure of aliveness will be our currency and it will only be the inspiration that will live to set us free. The only thing worth investing in is thee.

The Institute For Aliveness has not a mission but rather a moral imperative. The Founder tried to leave her career in health, she realized that no one was doing what she was - full spectrum applied epigenetic - from sexual health to self-conversation, lifestyle design to integrative relationship rebirthing, discussion on the power of psychedelic therapeutics to global impact… and of course keeping open commentary on all things Political Economy, food systems, capital incentive structures, commentary on the modern health system and more. Let’s not forget about hydration and pooping too. Oh - and the most important part of all - our own ability to take control of our nervous system, find calm and quell the incessant anxiety that plagues our disconnected species. That. That’s what The Institute For Aliveness is here to bring forth.


We are birthing the Docteurs of the Future. Part think-tank, part certification body and part research Institute, we build a better future: today.


Because our species has never been at such a trivial point in time. From climate destruction impending natural disaster, political shenanigans, and nationalized polarization. In late stage Capitalism, the minute our health and food became commodities, we lost.


So, no, this is not The Institute For Integrative Nutrition. This is much more. In fact, we tend to think nutritional science is bullsh*t.


Come inside.


Let us blow your mind and offer new ways of looking at the world, the human body, oh, and of course… yourself. 


Now enrolling for January 4, 2021 intake.



“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

We are actively seeking partners, collaborators, contributors and places to contribute. Our network is 30K strong, spread over 30+ countries.


Awaken people’s health futures by 2030. Put Health back in their own hands To have people become active engaged in their health, taking their “fate” of disease development into their own hands. Agency leads to activism in supporting CSAs, growing home gardens, educating their children differently - realizing that a diet that is healthful for us is also healthful for the planet.

"Andréa is a critical light in our collective evolution. There is so much that she is moving. She challenges current modes of social thought and pushes the boundaries of popular society, inspiring us to reimagine what health means and who its agents of change really are. She empowers her students to be the researchers and doctors of their own bodies, and she nurtures their curiosity and fascination along the way. She is truly an open vessel of fierce magic and wisdom, teaching us to embody the world that is our body; to appreciate that what appears to live outside of us may actually already be vibrantly alive within us."
