The Human Wisdom Project Announced the Launch of its HumanWisdom App
The Human Wisdom Project was founded by Dr Manoj Krishna, along with collaborators from around the world. He previously worked as a spine surgeon. The HumanWisdom app is a life companion, and has 59 modules which guide people in a gentle way to understand themselves and how their minds work. It can help people deal with the immediate challenges they face, like stress, but then takes them deeper to understand the origins of that in their thinking, so the problem does not recur. As our understanding of ourselves deepens, many of the problems that emerge from our thinking, like stress and anxiety, relationship conflict, addiction, and violence, can be more easily prevented and overcome.

The Human Wisdom Project also works with children, who already have this wisdom within them. When children were asked how they could use their wisdom to deal with climate change they said: "We need to find sources of pleasure that do not involve buying things", "If we could find an answer to our inner boredom, we would not need to consume so much", and "When I am bored, if I just stay with it, the feeling goes away".
Dr Krishna said, "Our inner emptiness, which is common to all human beings, drives our need for pleasure and consumption. This is not wrong, just a fact we are not aware of, which needs to be understood. Living with wisdom allows us to consume only what we need, and enables us to live in peace with ourselves, others, and the earth. It can also boost our emotional intelligence, communication skills, and resilience but above all, allows us to live with compassion. It is human thinking that got us into this mess, and perhaps human wisdom may help us get out of it".
