On Obstacles and Reverses: Turning Adversity to Advantage

Virtually everyone on this earth nourishes a passion or cause. Some burn fiercely on the surface; others are kept secretly in the heart; for some people life’s blows, buffets, and disappointments fall so heavily, they scarcely have time or energy to consider such questions. This course offers a practical methodology to help you articulate and carry out your passion or cause effectively and robustly. If you consider this path—the following Audio takes about 3 minutes—you are already on your way. You already have Resilience Advantage!

5G Video Webinar Series:

This is a series of 7 webinars designed to help all those who are feeling overwhelmed and losing hope of ever redirecting the 5G Juggernaut.  We aim toward a Higher Ground that is safer, more environmentally protective, and less intrusive of privacy and personal liberties.

The goals of this public education program are:

  • To offer a tested system of effective negotiation to address all challenges presented by 5G.
  • To clarify legal rights of individuals and communities in meeting the 5G Challenge.
  • To build bridges of collaboration between 5G advocates, scientists, physicians, and attorneys
  • To provide practical protocols to cultivate personal resilience and Self Care for all those who are exposed to EMF radiation.

A brief overview of the series.

Session # 1 introduces the core ideas of a systematic approach to negotiation and Need. It shows how you can gain a significant advantage by re-defining negotiation as “navigation” and learning to drop Assumptions and Expectations.

Session # 2—introduces the 5 Rings system which answers the question of what is your best next move and how instantly to spot and correct error.

Session # 3—explains in practical terms why Character is Destiny and how to Go Behind the Mask to anticipate the classic moves in The Shadow Game and to build synergy in life-affirming, resilient alliances

Session # 4—explores the Art of the Question and the fundamental life skill of Deep Listening

Session # 5—introduces best legal, business, and 4th sector practices of Strategic Alliances and Collaborative Innovation Networks

Session # 6—applies The Explorers Wheel, Discovery Engine, and other principles, methodologies, and tools of discovery/invention engineering and collaborative innovation to the 5G Network Challenge

Session # 7—provides a review of The Resilient Negotiator system; introduces a dialogue around unasked mind-heart expanding questions raised by 5G.

The 5G Juggernaut presents an unprecedented challenge to mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual health of individuals and communities. In combination with The Resilient Negotiator webinar series and online course, we also introduce a simple and enjoyable app to support all participants in this Great 5G Theater to realize what is always of transcendent importance: vitality, empowerment, balance, joy, compassion, and love.

Thank you in joining me on this journey in building your Integral Resilience in together turning the tide of the 5G Juggernaut.

Immediate Leverage: Challenging 10 Fundamental Disempowering 5G Assumptions

The Shadow Game is played by attacking the Mind with untested and unproven Assumptions. We immediately empower ourselves by challenging these assumptions and demanding proof. Shifting the burden of proof is a critical goal in the Global 5G Negotiation.

  • 5G is safe and benign because the governments and industry says it is.
  • 5G would never be deployed for crowd control—civilian control—even though that was part of its original purpose. It is impossible to manipulate large numbers of people remotely from satellites.
  • 5G cannot and would not be used to eradicate enemies, even though that was its original purpose on the battlefield.
  • There is no scientific proof that 60 GHz 5G is dangerous. The public should bear the burden of proving injuries from 5G because 5G is fundamentally safe and its importance should override vague concerns over public health.
  • 5G would never be used for surveillance of citizens or opponents since this is illegal.
  • Industry and governments should own and control all your personal data generated through 5G surveillance.
  • The public and local communities cannot have regulatory control over 5G since its development and deployment is of industrial importance and this strategic industry is none of their business.
  • The environmental impacts of 5G are no different than 1-4 G.
  • There is no need to provide for compensation for victims of 5G because the technology as developed and deployed is safe and benign. After all, how can anything that is invisible be dangerous?
  • Industry and governments have deep wisdom, along with the “free market,” about the highest and noblest uses of 5G technology.

Piloting Through Chaos—The Explorers Mind (2013)

Regular Webinars, Podcasts, and Blogs Featuring Leading 5G Experts in Science, Technology, Business, Innovation, Law, and Politics

BLOG POST: Negotiating 5G Speed Addiction with Resilience, Play, and Fun

During 1981-1983 Julian Gresser offered a unique course, Legal and Policy Issues of Strategic Technologies and Industries”that was made open for registration to Harvard and MIT faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students. The course, which was very positively received, was presented as a dialogue, featuring leading scholars and experts from Harvard and MIT, on a wide range of technical fields, including semiconductors, computers, telecommunications, robotics, and biotechnology. 

We will adopt the same successful format in The Resilient 5G Negotiator Training Program. Our goal is to explore fairly and openly different perspectives on the core scientific, technological, business, legal, political, and ethical dimensions of 5G. These will be presented and debated by leading domain experts with the intent to reach a Higher Ground of public understanding that will enable the implementation of 5G, if it is to proceed, to confer the highest and noblest benefits for humanity.

From 1976-1983 he was twice Visiting Mitsubishi Professor at the Harvard Law School and also taught courses as a Visiting Professor at MIT on the legal issues of strategic industries.

He has been a senior adviser to the U.S. State Department during the Carter Administration (where he established the Japan Industrial Policy Group), The World Bank, The Prime Minister’s Office of Japan, The People’s Republic of China, and the European Commission (where he trained the Commission’s Japanese negotiating teams). He is the author of eight books in English and Japanese, including most recently two online “living” books on Big Heart Intelligence and Integral Resilience.

Julian Gresser– Precedents and Precursors in Developing “The Resilient Negotiator”

Consulting, In-house Training Engagements, and Participants in Workshops


“The emphasis throughout Piloting Through Chaos is on negotiation, but the analysis and wisdom go well beyond that now available in the literature. This volume is a breakthrough in the use of words, thought processes and managing behavior responsibly.”

– Oliver Oldman, Learned Hand Professor (Emeritus), Harvard Law School

“Julian Gresser assesses some of the fundamental aspects of human behavior. Any negotiator, however experienced, will find new insights in this book.”

– Peter Price, Honorary Member of the European Parliament

“One portfolio company had been mired in negotiations with a foreign company for over a year. In one day’s training, they put together a new plan and team, and three months later closed an OEM agreement worth millions.”

Dr. Chuck K. Chan, General Partner, Alpine Technology Ventures

“IPOs in China and Japan, inventions in clean energy, decoding Japanese negotiation strategies, incubators for creativity and innovation, the role of beauty in discovery and bringing ideas to market—Julian Gresser is a Renaissance man with an amazing array of achievements and gifts.”

– John Tarrant, Zen master, author, Bring Me the Rhinoceros and other works

“Gresser is an international attorney, but also a 21st Century Renaissance Man, with a lifetime of experience in business, music, martial arts, invention, and meditation.”

Kenneth Cohen, author of The Way of Qigong and Honoring the Medicine

“Julian Gresser’s work shows with insight, style and imagination how integrity, that most fundamental of human virtues, continues to be vital to success, and even survival, in the ongoing negotiation of life in our rapidly changing world.  The added value in Piloting Through Chaos is the author’s suggestions on how integrity can be cultivated by conscious thought and action, and on how core integrity can affect outcomes in a variety of contexts.”

Peter L. Murray, Visiting Professor of Law, Harvard Law School

“The market is flooded with books and tapes about negotiating, but no one, until now, offers insight into the underlying essence of our interpersonal abilities. This fresh approach, if followed, can be transforming for us as individuals, and as a nation.”

– Claudine Schneider, Former U.S. Congresswoman

“Julian is 100% invested in teaching; an active listener; dedicated to ensuring that the class learns; he is high in energy and empathetic. What would my comments be to future participants? Exciting; out-of-the-box; has life application; fundamental to all relationships.”

– Bobbie Busha, Manager, BellSouth

“We need a cultural revolution as transformative as were the scientific and industrial revolutions. If human culture is to survive without unacceptable impacts on the planetary environment, we must live differently as a culture. This means that the arts and humanities are on the front lines of collaborating with scientists and engineers, we need a ‘second renaissance.’ Julian Gresser, in the second edition of “Piloting through Chaos,” presents a sharply focused methodology for attacking some of the urgent problems and seizing the new opportunities.”

Roger Malina, Editor, Leonardo

“Julian Gresser is one of those rarest of teachers. He embodies the wisdom that he shares. His pioneering work in negotiation is a quantum leap in human understanding and will move people to their highest level of truth and accomplishment. The value is incalculable, not only to individuals, but to our society.”

– Michael Fitzgerald, Former Director, Washington State Department of Trade & Economic Development

“There is widespread agreement that leadership at any level and in any area requires integrity in the person, the practice, and the profession. It is also clear that this is no easy, simple task, nor can it remain at the mercy of luck, sentimental or institutional formation. Julian Gresser – lawyer, scholar, martial artist, and street-smart practitioner – now makes available the teaching and achievement of integrity in its integral form. As a foundation president, former commissioner, ambassador, and university president, I have had occasion to enlist Julian’s remarkable system and energies. He/it is a godsend for our troubled times and leaders.”

– Dr. Glen A. Olds, U.S. Ambassador to UNESCO
