#74 Cultivating Generative Spaces to Develop Beacons of Extraordinary Health with Dr. Wayne Ruga Part 2

Dr. Wayne Ruga is the President and Founder of The CARITAS Project, a U.S.-based non-profit organisation committed to creating transformational environments that enhance human health. Wayne is a world-renowned architect, scholar, and visionary on a mission to create and support the development of spaces that inspire the advancement of human potential.

Wayne joins me today to continue our conversation. Here in Part 2, we discuss how we can cultivate better health in our daily lives and how his perspective on health and healthcare has evolved over the years.

We discuss the importance of being in tune with yourself, how you feel, and how you are in the world. We discuss how striving for and maintaining optimal health is an individualized process and why there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to achieve optimal health.

We discuss how the evolution of our society has conditioned us to think and how we can reawaken our own uniqueness and individuality to live a more enjoyable and meaningful life. We also discuss why it’s essential for each individual to realize they are the CEO of their own life and how Wayne believes we can cultivate a more resilient life.


“It’s crucial to remember the unique individuality of every single human being and to respect that. This is one of the core ideas behind generative space”
-Dr. Wayne Ruga
