I met with a friend and colleague recently to discuss the idea of the two of us co-writing a book about raising resilient children. We’d worked together a couple of years ago delivering an 11-week course in resilience skills to 4 grades of teenage boys at a Flexi-School on the north side of Brisbane and we very quickly realised how like-minded we were in our approach to the program and in our understanding of emotional development.
As we explored the topics we wanted to cover and the philosophies and practices we wanted to include in our book, we both agreed that the most important thing any of us can probably do for ourselves, and possibly the only thing we have any real control over, is

In today’s blog I am asking the question: How important is spirituality to a rich, juicy life?
Now most of my readership is made up of women and it is not too difficult, as a general rule, to get a good discussion going about spirituality and explore the impact it has on us girls.
In this day and age however, I might lean toward thinking that our male population might benefit more from exploring this topic than our female population, but whether you are a male or a female, it is definitely something worth exploring if you want to know what it’s like to live a richer, juicier life.
Why? Because a rich, juicy life has depth and it has purpose or meaning. While spirituality, on the other hand, answers the age old question we seem to ask in our darkest hours which is ‘what’s it all about’?
