This collection is a work in progress. Every week you will find a new addition as I compile resources. Articles will eventually be categorized and you are free to download or print anything written by me, for your own personal use.
Even though I am ill, I will not live like a sick person. —Dr. Jinroh Itami
My book: Ikigai and Illness: A Guide to Living Fully with Purpose, Meaning, and Joyful Moments
I would love it if you took a look at the small book I recently wrote. You will find both practical and inspiring resources for co-existing with illness.
It is beyond challenging to have serious health problems, yet we can still live amazing lives.

Words From People I Have Worked With
Trudy Boyle is the person I recommend to anyone who is challenged by a serious illness. She has three priceless qualities: (1) She has a wealth of valuable knowledge and wisdom collected over the past 25 years; (2) She has personal experience. She’s been there and she knows what it’s like; and (3) She has a warm and compassionate heart that is the basis of her authenticity and integrity. If you’re looking for support and guidance, you couldn’t be in better hands.
—Gregg Krech, author and Executive Director ToDo Institute
I have had the remarkable privilege of seeking out Trudy’s leadership in many capacities over numerous years and my intense respect for her and her work, has only deepened. She is one of the most trusted, tender, and wise leaders I know. Whether she is developing or facilitating programs, writing, or speaking Trudy shares her insights and wisdom with grace and compassion providing encouragement and tools to help us grow.

Living Well with Illness/Cancer is a program I have attended through my role as program director at Wellspring Calgary. Trudy’s work is full of thought-provoking ideas, activities and generosity and has provided me with formative and empowering influences in my own life and work. We recognize and appreciate this program as a significant way to reach out to our members as well as those in underserved communities. Thank-you Trudy.
