Wisdom is a practice. It’s creative.

This site is about living life, and as we go along, gaining in life experience, self-knowledge and contributing as well as gaining in wisdom. That is living well. It’s learning and growing. It’s the basis of wellbeing and a path for fulfilment, no matter what cards we are dealt now, in the past or will be dealt in the future.

The key notion is learning. Being curious. Rather than seeing wisdom as focusing on information and knowledge, seeing it as a process of enquiry, reflection and application that makes it more of an art, an aspiration and a practice. That’s why I call it practicing the wisdom arts.

“When we have lived enough life, experienced enough love

and enough wounding and repeated the pattern of loss and

renewal enough times, we become skilled at healing.

At learning. Always this starts with your self first,

through a deeply focused inner cycle

of reflection and application.

This cyclic practice builds the wisdom arts.

It builds the elder.”
