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.

Gerade in Zeiten von Corona ist dieses Thema wieder in seiner Wichtigkeit offenbar geworden.

John Taylor is a veteran from the Iraq war. He is now trying to raise consciousness about the fate of thousands of Iraqi (and Afghanistan) interptreters who have served the US army by taking huge risks for their lives and their families, and after the US soldiers left the country were left behind without any protetion or recognition of what they had done for the US. Only very few could enter into safety and come to the US so far. What can we do about that?

CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER – THE AFRICAN DIALOGUES

Caritas spoke at the Integral African Conference about her difficult journey escaping the genocide in Ruanda. See her talk here: In this conversation with Heidi she allows us an insight how the life of a refugee is like, even after having survived the worst. Heidi puts it into the context of the present European “refugee crisis” where refugees are left to die in the see and often treated badly on land. As if the Europeans had forgotten how many of them were refugees themselves, only a few decades ago!

INTEGRAL ASTROLOGY

Astrology is very important and often undervalued Typology, probably due to the rarely serious presentation of astrological advice in newspapers and journals. But actually, as soon as we strip it from the woo-woo components we find out that it is very neatly matching integral theory and should be considered as a valuable tool for knowing people and the world.
