LIFE IN THIS WORLD

In this section of CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER we present conversations about different locations of this world and how life is going on there as opposed to the countries we personally know and have lived in. We also discuss ideas and experiments to improve our connections as human beings in this world and to create peace among the contrasting cultures and nations.

Dr. Loraine Laubscher passed early this month.  We are offering a live streamed event with friends and colleagues for bringing appreciation to who she was and what she did in her life.
Check on this page the conversations we had with her during the last year.
Im monatlichen Treffen der Frauen am virtuellen Brunnen blicken wir zurück auf die vergangenen Monate und ziehen Bilanz, was wir erfahren und gelernt haben, ebenso wie wir denken, dass es weitergehen wird.

Women and GirlS’ empowerment

Why is it so important that girls grow up with confidence in their abilities? Why are women more capable to handle life than men are, especially in countries like Kenia? The future there and that of the whole world depends on women stepping up and change the way how we are organised today – following masculine principles and power structures.

Women Empowerment in Africa

An interesting conversation with a man in Rwanda, dedicated to empowering Women and young people in pursue of the reconstruction of their society after the total breakdown in the 90ies.

Women and Feminism

An interesting conversation with a young women who is trying to figure out how to use her knowledge of Integral Theory and other wisdom paths to lead her life as a woman in this world. Feminism who fights men doesn’t seem a way to gain a happy family life. How can men and women come together in a peaceful and constructive way?

I NEED TO KNOW YOU with Kymberli Speight

It takes an act of courage to step out and actively engage with people we meet in our lives and whom we have never seen before. Talking to them when we feel that they might be open to connection is a way to learn about their stories, their lives. We will discover that they are far more interesting than we had thought, that we can learn from their experience and, after all, that we have a lot in common.
