In times of confusion, chaos and uncertainty
there is one thing we know we can count on—


Hello. We are Debra & Larry Redalia, lifepartners and soulmates.

The Lifely Group is the culmination of our life’s work to understand and live as spiritual beings rooted in nature. This the subject closest to our hearts and indeed has been the foundation of our relationship together for more than 30 years.

Human beings are designed to be self-determined with an inherent desire and ability to sustain life. Indeed, we can observe these qualities in Homo sapiens from the beginning our species on Earth.

When we originally wrote this home page introduction, we had a section here about how industrialization is destroying the lives of humans and the Earth. But then the covid-19 pandemic came along and our industrial culture collapsed all around us. When the government allows us to leave our home and restore our lives, we need to rebuild on a new foundation.

Back in 1987, Debra was living in a forest, sick from exposures to the toxic chemicals of industrial consumerism. She opened her front door one day, looked out into the thriving forest, and wondered, "How can we humans live in a way that is as beautiful and productive and pure as nature?" Immediately she realized we needed to live as nature.

At that moment, she stopped belonging to the industrial world and stepped into the natural world. She met Larry within weeks. Clearly we were meant to be together.

Today we feel an urgency to release this information—even incomplete, even in a rough form—because it needs to start being applied more and more widely right now.

The door has opened.

Our big crisis will soon be seen as a big opportunity.

We created The Lifely Group to:

  • establish a philosophy that restores awareness and understanding of spirit and nature as the component parts of Life
  • restore self-determinism and the ability to sustain life to modern-day Homo sapiens
  • establish a lifestyle for the 21 century that is based in the fundamentals of Life.

As we celebrate our elder years, we are looking forward to sharing our collected wisdom with you,

Come explore the world of Life with us!
