RELATIONSHIP & SEXUALITY
Women are taking up their equal position in society world-wide with unstoppable momentum. It has been a long road just to recognise their equal right to vote: 1881 Isle of Man, 1893 New Zealand, 1917 Canada, 1918 Britain and Germany, 1920 in the USA. It has been a long road since the Women Liberation Movement of the 60’s to the relative improved conditions for women’s economic and political equality of today, and there is still a long way to go for realising true equality between the sexes.
RELATIONSHIP & SEXUALITY
Of all the forms of counselling my favourite one is couple and relationship counselling. In all other forms of counselling, personal development and psychotherapy, working one on one or in a made-up group – the clients still have to go home and integrate whatever was achieved in the session – into their normal relationship at home. But when you have both parts of a living relationship together in one process, if the process has any effect at all – whatever is achieved there is already integrated between them, because they achieve it together. Something is already done, a social form, however small, has upgraded itself. They take it home with them. The relationship itself has been upgraded.
PSYCHOPHONETICS
Does evolution continue? In nature it would take millions of years to verify, but in regards to human consciousness and civilizations that express it – evolution never had stopped. It can be verified within centuries and decades, practically during the lifetime of individuals, as social, personal, scientific, technological, cultural, political and economical conditions keep changing in front of our eyes.
PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
‘We are the ones that we were waiting for’. The potential to become one’s own leader, teacher and healer lives in everyone today, waiting to be born into reality. We are all pregnant with this capacity, at least for the past 60 years. As with any birth - conscious effort is required and a skilled help is essential: a doula, a midwife.
PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
A few days ago I gave a lecture on the topic of how to age well to the group of holocaust survivors in Bratislava, to whom I present various topics from time to time upon request, as I admire their heroism and spiritual resilience. The group includes people in their 80’s and 90’s, and a few years ago I would not accept such a topic of presentation to my elders. But now, in my mid-60’s I felt that I started to be qualified for it. After 30 years of counselling people from age 3 to 83 in more than 10 countries and recently becoming more aware of my own ageing process – I took up this challenge.
MENTAL HEALTH
No one likes crisis. It is painful, it is damaging, it creates loss, it creates loneliness, it destroys life as we know it before we know what the next step is, it ends dreams, it shatters self image, it is the very opposite, of safety, safety-zone, security, comfort. We devote a lot of our time and energy to prevent the possibility of crisis and maximise comfort and security - the whole of western-oriented economy and social structure is devoted to it.
MENTAL HEALTH
It does not take a very sharp eye to realise that we live continuously on many dimensions at the same time. Against the background of the dominant materialistic worldview in our academic and public life - for many people one human lifetime is only a chapter of a much bigger cycle of time, story and biography. Some believe in the possibility of reincarnation, some scoff at it as an old eastern religion and western hippies fairy tale. But there is another category of people regarding the possibility of repeated earthly lives: those who experience their previous lives with the same clarity and strength of reality with which they experience any other memory. For them past life is not a matter of belief but of direct personal experience.
