Serene Survivor Inventory

This page is presently under construction and experiencing technical difficulites. While under construction the text below is copied from the blog article Secrets of The Serene Survivor.

Expect revisions as this discussion unfolds. Meanwhile Secrets of The Serene Survior will, no doubt, remain as is with supporting article on this aspect of our Dark Side Warrior Adventure following on it on the main blog site (i.e. articles) as well as the "pages" of the site.

The pathway out of Survivor/Addict living and the ascent to "Awe."

Have I got you wondering, yet, what the healthy alternative to the Adrenalin Addicted Survivor/Addict looks and acts like? I certainly hope so. 

A baseline profile to guide your understanding of what I call the "Serene Survivor," the antithesis of the Dark Side Warrior or Survivor/Addict is underway here now. I hope to have this inventory up and completed for your perusal shortly.  In the meantime, allow yourself to indulge your curiosity by taking the short quiz that follows.

I will be back online here with details and explanations to help you understand and begin applying the implications intended as rapidly as I can. I regret I have been unable to bring you updates for this site for as long as its been; five months already. But I have been very tied up and distracted from this endeavor doing great things in the world, as best I can.

Read stories of my adventures over the past few months at: 
Anastasia The Storyteller blog site and the New Horizons Small "Zones of Peace" Project blog site. And treat yourself to listening to the podcasts of my Possible Society In Motion Radio Show, co-hosted with Jack Slattery for beautiful stories that complement the blog stories.
