Disaster Statistics

According to FEMA’s records the 3-year average number of disasters has increased665% since 1953.* The average number of disasters from 1953-1955 was 48. The average number of disasters from 2015-2017 was 319.

Great Living Sources takes a comprehensive, holistic approach to calamity readiness, so you can create an uninterrupted lifestyle.

What We Do

We believe being ready means having the necessary tools and skills to live through the chaos that inevitably follows a calamity. Buying a bunch of supplies and storing them until an emergency arises will not guarantee survival. Creating a lifestyle that empowers you and reduces your dependency on external resources will.

                    “The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” -Sun Tzu

When we are ready for a calamity, there need not be a battle. We have already won because we know what we need to do even before calamity strikes.

Establishing a self-reliant and sustainable lifestyle leads to self-empowerment, creating a daily life less impacted by external circumstances, and full of joy, fulfillment, and abundance.

Empowered Lifestyle

A sustainable lifestyle empowers you to be ready no matter what circumstances you may encounter or not encounter. While we hope you never encounter calamity or the chaos that ensues, we are realistic. Bad things do happen. We want to reduce or eliminate the effects chaos or calamity have on your daily life by getting you ready.

          Community or Like-Minded Group

In developing a sustainable lifestyle, it may be necessary to develop a community of like-minded individuals. You may have a community group in mind or be working to form such a group. We can help you on your quest.

In his book, Return to Life – Chaos Reins, GL Skye discusses the challenges of forming a group or community where everyone works together and how to overcome the challenges of building a cohesive team – a “family”. The book is fiction, but the scenarios he describes, and the methods are realistic and applicable to day-to-day life.

Our sustainable approach centers around a holistic perception of us as human beings. As human beings we are made up of three components; a spiritual component, a mental component, and a physical component. Together these three components form a “diamond-shape”. We call this “The Core of Calm” ® The Core of Calm is that point where we are totally balanced.
