This is an ever-evolving information page for the Self Crafted Wellness Tribe who desire to know more and do more, to be the best version of Self so far.

The Self Crafted Wellness Journal includes 52 Wellness points that when activated, contribute to thorough, life long wellness. Each point is explained simply in the Journal, with actionable information you can take immediately to make change. For some people, the action page will be enough. But if you’re a Questioner (like me) who likes to know the everything about the something before you do the thing, this page will give you heaps of ammo.

On this page you’ll find some of the best resources I’ve come across for self-directed learning about Wellness, catalogued by their relationship to each of the 52 Wellness points. It’s my intention to provide you with exactly the most beneficial education to support you to craft the best version of yourSelf so far. It’s not my intention to overload you with information. Take what works, and leave the rest behind.

In the many years of health studies, I never thought I would be teaching the topics I was researching for myself. SO, I’ve never saved any of the key resources used in my journey. I’ve listened to thousands of hours of interviews and seminars, read hundreds of books and articles, trolled pubMed for hundreds of hours… This page will continue to evolve as I remember and re-find resources that are effective for Self Crafted Wellness.

Many of the links send you to author’s websites. I urge you to search a podcast database for any of the author or website founder names to lstening to interviews. I find podcasts to be the best way to learn directly from the source. Often authors give you all the key points in an hour interview so that you don’t even need to read the book!

Here’s my biggest take away from the years of delving deep into the research :

Science complicates what nature already shows us. In the hyper-reductionalism of specific scientific study, it’s easy to get caught up in details that, if we just step back from it all, looking with a broader eye, the answers have already been proven, many times over.

Although I’ve provided a few scientific studies in the resource notes, they are offered with a word of warning : Nature already knows what science can only prove in a reductionist state.

And most of all : Nature exists in its complexity and woo-wooness in ways science has yet to prove. If science is unable to find a way to prove a particular phenomenon, that’s not to say it’ untrue. Katy Bowman’s essays in the Science Moves chapters in Movement Matters demonstrates this.

Further Geekage

Further to the above list, there are a few voices that I’m always paying attention to. These people are based internationally, yet I feel if we were in the same country we’d totally be besties 🙂

If you really wish to geek out on your own research, check these out :

  • Jack Kruse Podcasts – every podcast Dr Kruse has been interviewed on. The first time I heard Dr Kruse speak, in 2013, it changed my life forever.
  • Arthur Haines – a sensitive and aware voice in the work of Wellness and Authenticity in the modern age.
  • Katy Bowman and Nutritious Movement – inspiring change and breaking casts of body and mind.
  • Stephen Porges – a researcher who studies the Autonomic Nervous System and how our body perceives stress for survival.
