“Get ready. They’re waiting for us,” Heidi brusquely called me. I grumpily began to respond by quickly ending a sentence I was typing, making a trip to the bathroom, and changing into appropriate clothes. She had already exited when I left the house so I took a shortcut through the parking lot. Dashing through an empty space, a van with two men in it rushed into that space, pinning me between their bumper and a cement wall with not more than an inch of wiggle room for my legs. Frozen, I glanced to the driver who held up both palms to me as if to reassure me that he was as surprised as I was. After a few seconds I began to inch my way forward out of the way while he continued to stand on the brakes with his hands up, never backing away nor even touching the gear shift lever. Exiting the tight space I [...]

Why the world doesn’t really change – until women step massively into leadership and why this is so difficult to happen.
It is not only because women want babies, grow them up and feel to have to take care of the household, the family relationships, the psychological well being of everyone concerned. There is more lying underneath which makes it really difficult for women to go out into the public and claim their place in important leadership settings. Yes, there is the male dominance. Men feel great when they graciously “allow” women to take over some role in their society - and they, the men, get all the benefit by women feeling recognized and inspired to do even more for their male fellows, beginning with cleaning up their mess and organizing celebrations, food, whatever. And they, the women, make sure that the relationships go well, they are doing what they feel inspired to do: scoop everybody into a state of feeling good (the green mantra) - and more often than not they - the women - don’t realise [...]
My husband told me about a thread in facebook where someone presented some ideas - and then this tread was taken over by men who were fighting about who was better and more right than the other - and the sense of the discussion was completely lost in the battle of predominancy. Nothing unusual, you might say. But there is a BUT. The people involved claim to be “highly evolved” in the “integral state of consciousness” and on the “leading edge of our present culture”. Wow! Do they really believe that about themselves? Don’t they instead behave like humans have behaved for thousands of years? The fight for “being the boss” and dim down the others under MY power? If not physical power, it has become the power of the mind, the power of knowing more - all still used in the very old ways of putting oneself on the pedestal and devaluating others. Far [...]
What are the difficulties for men in their relationships and how can they handle them? Relationships seem to be easy when we have just fallen in love. In time things change - they always do - and we need to change consequently if we want to maintain our relationships and even bring it to true flourishing. Raymond Fismer, expert for men's work has led many groups of men to a better understanding of their roles in their relationships and has contributed greatly to the resolution of their problems. He will explore with us the unhappiness within relationships and how to develop new capacities to evolve, as a person and inside the couple. Raymond Fismer is a physicist who has done the path of development which he is teaching now to other men. He is board member of the German Integral Association (Integrales Forum) and deeply interested in bringing the integral worldview as outlined by Ken Wilber out into [...]
In short because they have great difficulty not looking at women who can use their bodies as bodies and not just as sexual manipulatrixes. That may take some explanation. So, from the beginning: When I “signed up” for a live-in partnership with Heidi, I accepted the expectation that I would care for my body, including my abysmal posture, all stoop -shouldered and pot bellied - generally just plain very slack. So i began attending weekly Pilates “lessons” with her and a couple girlfriends and with Giovanni, the husband of one of them. His role modeling saved my butt. The instructor was/is one Libera Ceccharelli, a lithesome almost 50 with a dancer’s body that would be the envy of any woman in their 40’s, or 30’s! I didn’t take my eyes off her, and only in part so as to imitate the positions and movements she demonstrated as the session progressed. That was necessary in part [...]
