Principles and Philosophy

ADRIA W. LAKE on Resilience-based Wellness [Rbw] — excerpts from Q&A“Resilience, not prevention, is the future.    As the rapid advancement in bio-technology, genetic modifications, DNA based research and medicine, VR, big data analytic, global connectivity, access to personal info/health data, and our innate desire for immortality intersect, enhancing our resilience to diseases, environmental stresses, natural and man-made disasters, chemical toxins, and even death would be the most logical way to secure our future on the planet.“

“Resilience-based Wellness asserts that the capacity to not only survive but thrive is encoded in our DNA.  Through millions of years of natural selection, we inherited our ancestors’ resilient, resourceful, and productive genes.  The frail, weak, disease prone and fearful of our species would have died out.   This is how we have evolved to be the planet’s most successful species.”

“RbW takes on a different approach and attitude towards prevention.   Rather than striving to protect ourselves from external forces,control our environment, or fretting over the infinite number of possible threats, we focus on building our resistance to them.

By exposing and opening ourselves to as many different types of unfamiliar situations and conditions, resilient individuals face stress, adversity, trauma, tragedy, and threats from a state of “readiness” and are confident that they will bounce back stronger and even more resilient.” Read More
