Integral Resilience for Busy People

Integral Resilience is the Rosetta Stone for Behavioral Change underlying Robust Health, Life Force, Imagination, Creativity, and Longevity.

What if it can be cultivated in 5 minutes of practice a few times each week?

Everyone these days, it seems, is overly busy. Some even call it a malady, because “busy-ness” can be closely linked with overload, fatigue, burnout, and depression.

5M2R is designed with busy people in mind. It accepts busy-ness as a way of living, but offers a path to having better balance.

What if you can continue to be busy – if you like being busy – but there is a way not to sacrifice what is really precious in life – what matters most? We have designed 5M2R to dovetail effortlessly with your busy schedule.

We have designed 5M2R to fit into your busy schedule!


You can spread exploring the 5M2R modules over many weeks and months. Each 52MR practice takes about five minutes – to listen to the audios, ponder the material, explore the questions and prepare for action.


Many of us want help with specific pressing resilience issues. 5M2R will recommend the most effective and responsive modules on-demand. Learning and developing personal resilience is a very personal journey.


5M2R follows a natural sequence to learn Integral Resilience, where each module builds upon the ones before.


Surprisingly, practicing 5M2R augments time. Small spaces open and create opportunities; our priorities shift, and we can accomplish far more with less effort.

A Core Life Competency


Building Integral Resilience offers powerful leverage for busy people in another way: it is a foundational skill that underlies and empowers all other positive behaviors.


There is increasing scientific evidence that life-affirming “positive” behaviors have beneficial effects on a large spectrum of human challenges, including recovering from trauma, managing chronic illnesses, building adaptive vitality, and even longevity. Integral resilience is a foundation for addressing all of these life challenges.


We call this the “Resilient Multiplier Effect.” In business terms, making a modest investment of your time in cultivating Integral Resilience can yield benefit streams lasting a lifetime.
