It’s time to set aside doom and gloom to make way for hope-restoring solutions.

Throughout history, our greatest survival strategy has been our ability to co-operate and work together. We cannot thrive alone. A lone individual in the wilderness can survive for a time, but one wrong move and that individual will quickly succumb to the elements, starvation, or predators.

This same logic applies today. The lone individual or single-family home can make it for a while, but what do we do when a family member needs medical, financial, or another form of support that is beyond the scope of your individual abilities?

In order to go beyond just surviving and into thriving requires one very important thing — community.

To get there, we need some tenacity, willingness, and a bit of expert guidance.

Researcher and adventurer, Stefen Verstappen has spent decades scouring history and searching for examples from the past that could help us in the present. He’s the author of dozens of articles in various magazines and newspapers and he’s written eight books on survival strategies, including The Way of the Warrior, The Art of Urban Survival, and The Thirty-Six Strategies of Ancient China.

He has worked as an instructor for St John Ambulance, a wilderness guide, a community organizer, and a martial arts instructor with over thirty-five years of experience in the martial arts, including four years spent studying in China.

Now he shares this wealth of experience to help us help ourselves in these uncertain times.
