I am moving steadily toward a resilient lifestyle and have long be interested in Emotional Mastery and Emotional Resiliency. My recent book (www.thebookofgardens.com) illustrates how we are psychologically tied to Growth-Only Economics, offering a time tested method of self analysis and decision making, the I-Ching. For those looking to unravel that constant sensation of urgency or anxiety inherent to this transition and the upcoming Crash, the deep sense of reflection offered by the use of the I-Ching brings forward a sense of empowerment and connectedness to Our Nature. For those curious toward Chinese culture and thought, and as we move toward a time of increasing Chinese presence and dominance in the global marketplace, this book will serve as an interesting introduction toward another cultural world-view. The I-Ching is simply a fantastic method of self analysis and decision making. I look forward to hearing from you, and to developing new contacts within the Peak Prosperity Community, as I've much admired the quality of information gathered here. Enjoy - Phil. -- Author, Care-Worker, and 'retired' Professional Stage Actor. The Canadian arts scene differs greatly from the American, generally speaking, in that we've never had a 'Star System' to corral our artistic endeavor. This is all rather 'for-better-or-for-worse,' as our cultural activity is deeply realized only in select pockets - living in the mega-shadow of our neighbors to the south, ie: Hollywood. Nonetheless, my tenure in professional theatre which took me coast-to-coast in Canada and briefly abroad, allowed me to realize just how flexible a creature we actually are, that Identity is mutable - and yet, simultaneously - just how stuck we become due to our economic Situations. We become fixed to the tasks which define us as an Economic Unit. I have found this a difficult predicament to speak to - hence my book, illustrating just how fertile our minds are, given the right conditions for Intrinsic, or Actual, Growth. Wealth in this light is the depth of ones own self acceptance. Inside the pages I lead readers toward The Practical Value of Wonder. I am currently looking to purchase land. I have started gathering supplies for shelter and physical resiliency, and am a ready and strong worker. My main contribution I can make in Community is toward the depth of inter-personal connection, using mindfulness, meditation, and compassionate communication as the tools of self development and positive relationships.
