Feedback & Email

Starting in the early 1990s, this 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. Forms of wellness may include (in no particular order) communal, cultural, physical, family, clan, inter-family, personal, interpersonal, spiritual, emotional, psychological, habitat, relational, village, inter-village inter-religious, inter-clan, geo-social, environmental, inter-faction, economic, and inter-cultural wellness. 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
  • Fostering Self Help and Mutual Help towards wellbeing
  • Evolving healing networks
  • Evolving culturally sensitive fast response psychosocial support teams for disaster response
  • Enabling Community ways for healing the World

Acknowledging:

Vast numbers of grassroots folk in the East Asia Oceania Australasia Region have contributed their experience and competence. Accumulatively, resonant academic folk 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. It is now back on the Internet in a much expanded way. The wisdom on the Laceweb website has been drawn from the grassroots people of the Oceania East Asia Australasia Region. 109 themed pages are chunked into sixteen sections. Content within each page is hyperlinked. All of the pages are also hyperlinked. So this is a 3D woven space that you may seamlessly move around in following sub-themes and Keypoints. People around the World have found inspiration for action from this Laceweb Resource often based on practical examples from the past. As one example, a school in the UK for Children With Special Needs drew upon the Cultural Healing Artistry page in enabling staff and parents in supporting all of the students through the week in evolving an extraordinary extravaganza on Friday afternoon based upon the theme ‘The Emergence of Life on Planet Earth.’ Everyone was thrilled at the imagination, creativity, expressiveness, verve, and talent that emerged in very special children. Parents, Staff and Children were transformed by the experience. 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
