About this guild

This guild is about maintaining that delicate eqiulibrium of mental and physical well-being, that organism whose inter-dependent mechanisms allow calm, rationality and ultimate spiritual fulfilment. Often it's easy for one or more parts to be thrown out of sync. Here we look at ideas and practices for retaining and increasing wisdom and vigour in a demanding, hectic world. 

"Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other."  Steven R. Covey
