Statement: My head, my thoughts, my mind, my (lack of) self-esteem is stopping me from doing things. Answers: Yes. No. If the first answer applies: I invite you to enjoy the conversation between Rayya Elias & Elizabeth Gilbert: A while ago I needed to bring something down to paper. Because I confess: my answer is… Blog post #24: Slave of mind – no more weiterlesen

Blog post #22: Breathtaking – revisited. A word that calls for action in every respect.
When you are reading this word – breathtaking – what are your first associations? Some weeks ago, I would have said: the experience of sunrise, seeing and inhaling the moist early morning meadows, colorful clouds, a piece of (your) art I can connect to, … Something that touches me deep inside. Something that resonates with… Blog post #22: Breathtaking – revisited. A word that calls for action in every respect. weiterlesen
Blog post #21: Wie möchtest du 2020 in Erinnerung behalten?
Wie möchtest du 2020 in Erinnerung behalten? – Eine Frage, welche ich seit meinem Balkon-zu-Balkon-Gespräch heute morgen nicht mehr aus dem Kopf bekomme. Obwohl Matthias Horx` Regnose aufmunternd, die Vergleiche im Essay von Bernd Ulrich Apokalypse, not now treffend, und der Vlog von Christian Felber kritisch animierend waren, weil es bei allen (auch) darum geht,… Blog post #21: Wie möchtest du 2020 in Erinnerung behalten? weiterlesen
Blog post #20: Was wäre wenn … wir schon existierende Alternativen wahrnehmen würden?
Gestern Nacht bin ich aufgewacht. Es war drei Uhr Früh. Im Traum hat ein alter Schulkamerad etwas verzweifelt gemeint, gäbe es doch nur schon Alternativen. Ich weiß nicht, ob noch im Traum oder schon im halbwachen Zustand – aber mir fielen zahlreiche Initiativen, Bewegungen, Alternativen ein. Keine Utopien, sondern bereits gelebte Realitäten. Allerdings bisher nur… Blog post #20: Was wäre wenn … wir schon existierende Alternativen wahrnehmen würden? weiterlesen
Blog post #19: The power of the individual – to make a difference together
While on a hike, I came across this pile of stones. It was more to me than what it is set out to be. (No, apparently it was not enough „just“ to be a life saving sign at that moment when I was wandering lost in thought, pondering about meaning of life questions…). It demonstrated… Blog post #19: The power of the individual – to make a difference together weiterlesen
Blog post #17: Transformations – for change
A new decade has just started. The one leading towards 2030. There will be a lot to do. But where to start? High time to spread Thomas Macintyre´s PhD thesis The Transgressive Gardener, presented by Arjen Wals as “one of the most original one’s” he has been involved in. Maybe you´ll find some answers there?… Blog post #17: Transformations – for change weiterlesen
Blog post #16: “Unseen need”: Spaces for reflection [Kitchen Table Conversations, Part I]
Below some thoughts I needed to get out of my head after a spontaneous kitchen table conversation with my housemate towards the end of last year. – Coming home from a quite long day in the office. Dealing with data analysis right now. Again. Figuring out how we learn. How key competencies in sustainability were… Blog post #16: “Unseen need”: Spaces for reflection [Kitchen Table Conversations, Part I] weiterlesen
Blog post #13: How to predict the future?
My colleagues and I are facilitating a seminar at Leuphana University of Lüneburg this fall semester – in the famous Leuphana Semester, where students no matter which undergradute study program and major they are going to study, embark on their very first research project together. The motto could be collaboration before disciplinary education. The title… Blog post #13: How to predict the future? weiterlesen
Blog post #12: Is to dare to care?
In blog post #9 I recommended Ken Robinson´s TEDtalk. Not only because what he says is worth listening to but also how he says it. Same goes for Brené Brown in talking about the power of vulnerability in a, to me, entertaining way. To me, what they have in common, is their elaboration on human… Blog post #12: Is to dare to care? weiterlesen
Blog post #11: What are you waiting for?
There is plenty of research done that could wake us up. There are plenty of reasons calling us to action. If we only believed that each one of us mattered and makes a difference. So much can be done right here right now. As Alixa and Naima said: „Why would a flower hesitate to open?“… Blog post #11: What are you waiting for? weiterlesen
