He has been creating awareness about inspirational pointers, strategical, tactical, assessment and outreach tools to facilitate living a happy, meaningful and fulfilling life. He is a speaker at local and international events.
Frank lived “la dolce vita” in the peacefulness of his native, pristine Italian small town, where he read about spirituality, Eastern/pre-Socratic/Latin philosophy, and started to practice meditation. Until he joined NATO as military police officer, and then visited, in less than 10 years, over 30 countries and 80 cities, cultivating personal/professional development living in Italy, London, USA, Malta, Estonia. He now settled in beautiful British Columbia. During his travels, he familiarized with different cultures and way of living. And understood we are all on the same boat, figuring out what matters for us in life and how to life happily. He noticed there is often little correlation between how “society” defines a happy life and how happy each person really feels. He researched about well-being, both in empirical ways and leveraging existing peer-reviewed studies.
He built and managed the first European social network devoted to peace. He started to blog about spirituality in 2006, and has been blogging on AmAreWay.org since 2009. This blog is a popular destination for personal development and well-being; it ranks (source: Amazon Alexa, as April 2012) among the top 4k websites in Canada, and top 5k in Italy.

|Dr. Russ Harris, as a GP, became increasingly interested in the psychological aspects of medical illness (and increasingly disenchanted with writing prescriptions). He soon developed a special interest in the branch of medicine known as psychoneuroimmunology, which investigates the intimate connection between the mind, the nervous system, and the immune system. Ultimately this led to a career change, and he now works as a therapist and as a coach. He took part in the reality-show “Making Australia Happy”.
