About Us

Practical, Philosophical, Well-Being

Ability Life is a profit for purpose enterprise that provides programs and resources to the community, the Health sector and both profit and ‘Not for Profit’ groups.  

Our aim is to improve health and well-being by encouraging a deeper engagement in life through blogs and writings, talks, contemplations and meditations. All are designed to build resilience, improve psychological, mental and emotional balance and capacity, by cultivating awareness, understanding, and compassion.  

Grace, an accredited mindfulness and meditation teacher and asssociate ASLM member, has an executive background and is a long term mindfulness practioner. Holding a special interest in spiritual and personal growth, Grace formulates and delivers secular mindfulness based well-being programs and facilitates Christian and personal growth meditations during reatreats.  

Practical

We provide health, well-being and self-help tips, tools, and resources that encourage us to take action as well as think. To discuss or develop a program for your group, contact us for a no obligation chat. 

Philosophical

The word philosophy comes from the Latin ‘philosophia’ meaning the love of wisdom. As well as lifestyle, general and mental health, our Blogs encompass reflections and insights on the nature of knowledge, life and existence. 

Well-Being

Hedonistic well-being serves as an immediate happiness from the pleasure of having fun and enjoyment. Eudaimonic well-being relates to a moral philosophy and a more contemplative understanding of the meaningful things of life. Aristotle spoke of eudaimonic well-being  as being central to reasoning, happiness and a rich fulfilling life, and a start point for thinking about the nature and purpose of human life, its virtue and ultimate fulfilment.

Neuroscience shows us that this form of well-being directly affects our genomes in positive and healing ways*. This knowledge helped form the impetus to create and share the information and practices on this site.

The writings and resources provided in this site encompass and flow out from the influence and wisdom of historical spiritual writings and transcripts, biblical and philosophical studies, researchers, scientists, health and educational experts and the many individuals who have generously offered their knowledge and wisdom on and offline for the benefit of all.
