Some discerning social commentators are recognising a global groundswell of people taking action for a better world. A new form of social movement. Focusing on wellness. Connecting and relating well with others and the environment. Involving perhaps well over a million groups in every country around the world. This archive documents this wellness action in the SE Asia Oceania Australasia Region. This site, back on the Internet in late Aug 2014 has already been linked into by folk in 108 countries.

Welcome to Laceweb

This Homepage started in the early 1990s. It is a receptacle containing over 50 years of wellness experience from the Oceania SE Asia Australasia Region. Laceweb Homepage is a free resource for all folk exploring possibilities for better futures through engaging in self-help and mutual-help towards wellness in all of its forms. 147 themed articles and papers, and nine other linked papers are chunked into Seventeen sections.

A portal to a vast array of Healing Ways (as in making whole).

  • Journeying into a wealth of nurturing healing ways
  • Tapping into ancient wisdoms
  • Discovering the latest understandings of the mindbody

Acknowledging

The wisdom on the Laceweb website has been drawn from the grassroots people of the Oceania East Asia Australasia Region. Vast numbers of grassroots folk in the Region have contributed their experience and competence. Indigenous and small minority people and resonant other folk from academic to professor level have been involved and evolved. Everything in this vast resource is from practical wisdom in action – a collection of what’s worked well, and at times contexts that have not worked so well - for learning better ways. This Homepage was available on the Internet during the 1990s through to 2006. As from May 2014 it is back on the Internet in a much expanded way. You may want to Bookmark this page and send a link to it to people you know. It’s a window to a massive resource. In rewriting and re-launching Laceweb, initially some hyperlinks may not be working. These will progressively be adjusted in the coming weeks
