Rick Lybarger


Wisdom1 is about conscious living and discovering the place within yourself that helps you to break free from outside influence and go within to find peace and balance to live your best life.  It was born out of my own search for happiness, peace, and the things I needed to do to release my own shame and fear.  Everyone one has a story about the successes, triumphs, and failures.  They are some of the things that shape our livers.  If you took away your money and your titles who are you really?  Would you be happy and at peace with life?  Do you know the simple joys of a sunrise or the feelings of a good laugh or cry?  Are you always chasing something so you don’t have to slow down and be at peace with yourself?  These are the questions I found myself asking.  They lead me on a journey within.  A search for peace, health, joy and love for myself.  Wisdom1 is build around the modern tools and ancient teachings that can help you rediscover or discover for the first time the amazing person within.
