Our Farm is the residential embodiment of the mission, values, and objectives of LiveLifeResources. It's where we offer learning and living opportunities intended to inspire connection to the natural world, provide real world and hands on experiences of sustainability and resilience.
LiveLifeResources (LLR) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit educational organization committed to socially beneficial research and advocacy. Our research aims to advance understanding and education of the traits and characteristics that contribute to resilience and other life-enhancing potential within individuals, families, and communities.
Through collaboration with aligned entities, LLR is committed to providing a collaborative hub dedicated to innovative research, advocacy, and education in the realms of resilience and life-enhancement.

LiveLifeResources utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to non-medical research, many of our studies occur in collaboration with partner institutions. Here for more information and research overview
Awareness can be defined as “the quality or state of being Aware; knowledge and understanding that something is happening or that something exists” (Merriam-Webster, 2018). Awareness is multidimensional and can occur on multiple levels and layers simultaneously. We can be aware of our physical condition and surroundings in conjunction with our emotional and/or mental state or outlook. We can also be motivated to respond to our awareness from both conscious and subconscious thought and belief.
At LLR we believe that awareness plays an instrumental role in the establishment and development of resilience within individuals, groups, and communities. Awareness shapes how someone responds. The greater the level of awareness about self, other, and environment the greater the capacity for resilience. As such, we’re committed to providing research, resources, and learning opportunities for the cultivation of the multidimensional properties of awareness.
With the cultivation of awareness comes the responsibility of action. We believe that as individuals, families, and communities cultivate multidimensional awareness, they increase their capacity for making proactive, life-enhancing choices and/or immediate and effective response. We conduct research and provide resources and learning opportunities developed to stimulate proactive, life-enhancing action, we hope to contribute to the development of resilience in individuals, families, and communities.
Why resilience? When something is resilient, it has the capacity to respond effectively or adjust easily to adversity or change. Resilient individuals contribute to resilient families and communities.
At LiveLifeResources/LifeWiseU we provide in-person and online research and learning opportunities for the enhancement of resilience.
How We Fulfill Our Vision and Mission
By conducting research grounded in human interest and behavior, LLR adds to the growing body of evidence-based literature concerning resilience and the enhancement of quality of life.
In highlighting individual and social processes, needs, and actions, we hope to provide nonpartisan, empirically supported data that will increase public understanding and inform local and national policymaking in the pursuit of health and well-being.
Transformational change happens when individuals and communities have the opportunity to gather and apply new information. Through partnership with like-intended professionals and organizations, we provide both in-person and online forums designed to engage participants in multidimensional learning opportunities focused on the enhancement of health and well-being and the cultivation of resilience.
Our courses and trainings are available to individuals, organizations, and institutions and can be adapted to meet institutional requirements as needed.
Resources for Resilience and Well-Being
At LLR we want to help individuals, families, and communities access their best opportunity for living well. Our LifeWiseU platform contains resources and information intended to take you a step further than health consciousness, into the realm of Living Wisdom.
Reading provides all the ingredients for stimulating awareness and inspiring action towards life-enhancing practices.
Books – Through our own publications and other like-intended publications, our LifeWiseU series provides reading recommendations for both adults and children.
Articles – Articles discussing the findings and experiences generated by our research projects as well as other relevant studies can be found in this section of the LifeWiseU platform.
