This presentation will explore the major themes, dimensions, and conceptualizations of resiliency from communal, psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual perspectives. We will discuss how to mobilize resiliency within the framework of time-limited soul care and use the dynamic interaction among heritages, norms, traditions, and values, to further the coping, surviving, and thriving strategies. We will argue that resiliency, is not only a psycho-emotional and individualistic potential ability, but also a collective foundation, resource, and faculty stored in the community. Thus, resiliency is a clear function of culture, group identity, and generational wisdom.
