adaptation energy...

"It is as though we had hidden reserves of adaptability, or adaptation energy, throughout the body... Only when all of our adaptability is used up will irreversible, general exhaustion and death follow."

(Hans Selye MD)

preserve your adaptiveness by meeting each moment afresh. it's that simple. we can defy current models of aging and adaptation-depletion, and transform intergenerational and collective traumas into wisdoms...

"Adaptiveness is the capacity to respond to external stressors without rigidity, with flexibility and creativity, without excessive anxiety and without being overwhelmed by emotion."

(Gabor Mate MD)
