The Resilience Project
- Finding Happiness Through Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness
- By: Hugh van Cuylenburg
- Narrated by: Hugh van Cuylenburg
- Length: 4 hrs and 45 mins
Hugh van Cuylenburg was a primary school teacher volunteering in northern India when he had a life-changing realisation: despite the underprivileged community the children were from, they were remarkably positive. By contrast, back in Australia Hugh knew that all too many children struggled with depression, social anxieties and mental illness. His own little sister had been ravaged by anorexia nervosa. How was it that young people he knew at home, who had food, shelter, friends and a loving family, struggled with their mental health, while these kids seemed so contented and resilient?
I don't like self-help books

I loved listening to Hugh read his book; I’m glad I listened to the audio version so I could hear the story in his own words. The book has many similar stories to his public presentation but this was a good refresher for me about his principles of GEM. Would highly recommend to others.
