Can we raise our resilience to stay happy in a rather crazy world?

Hazel Hill Wood

Answers to these questions are complex, but there is a simple guiding thread: to apply the principles of natural organic growth, resilience and sustainable development to all aspects of our situation, to the way we live and work, and to our environment.  This has led to my new website and planned third book on Natural Happiness.

Resilience is a vital skill for all of us, so one focus of my work is Wisdom Tree, a team offering resilience and wellbeing programmes for individuals, work organisations and communities.

Maturing Happily: Alan has been exploring this theme since his own midlife crisis in his early fifties. He has co-led both mixed and men’s groups on creative ageing, and has explored this theme in his writing. This includes his new planned book, Not Fade Away – staying happy when you’re over 64!, and his second book, Out of the Woods: a guide to life for men beyond 50. For more about Alan’s current work on maturing happily, click here, for blogs on this theme click here, for more about Out of the Woods click here.

Through this website, you can see more about my blogresources, and my work on community resilience.

The Wisdom section of this website includes a blog; information about spiritual sources of resilience; material about creative ageing, my book and other resources for men beyond 50; and pictures and writing about Desert Wisdom and the retreats I led in the Tunisian Sahara.

This site is both an introduction to my projects, events and writings and a gateway to other contacts and resources on this. Your suggestions are deeply welcome.
