Small is beautiful – an economic idea that has sadly been forgotten | Madeleine Bunting EF Schumacher's Small is Beautiful was the first book on politics I ever read; it was the only book about politics I ever saw my father read or heard him talk about. It arrived in our cottage in rural North Yorkshire as a manifesto from a radical countercultural world with which we had no contact. Re-reading its dense mixture of philosophy, environmentalism and economics, I can't think what I could possibly have understood of it at 13, but in a bid to impress my father I ploughed on to the end. Looking back over the intervening almost four decades, the book's influence has been enormous. One of the recurrent themes through the book is how modern organisations stripped the satisfaction out of work, making the worker no more than an anonymous cog in a huge machine. It was a radical challenge which, like many of the ideas of the late 60s and early 70s (feminism is another example), were gradually adopted and distorted by the ongoing voracious expansion of consumer capitalism.

Animisme & chamanisme : le monde des Inuits # 4 - Le blog de Phoebe Les Inuits sont issus des peuples autochtones des régions de l’Arctique de la Sibérie et de l’Amérique du Nord (Alaska, Territoires du Nord-Ouest, le Nunavut, le Yukon, le Nunavik au Québec, le Nunatsiavut au Labrador ainsi qu’au Groenland. Ces dernières populations inuites qui vivent au Groenland sont les plus connues car les plus étudiées d’un point de vue anthropologique. Les peuples inuits (inuk, pluriel d’inuit) sont variés et on en rencontre dans pratiquement toutes les régions polaires de la planète. Il existe les Inuits et les Inuvialuits du Canada, les Kalaallits du Groenland, les Iñupiats, les Yupiks de l’Alaska et les Yupiks de Russie (NB : les Yupiks de Russie ne sont pas considérés comme des Inuits au sens d’une descendance thuléenne). De nos jours, les Inuits constituent une population d’environ 150 000 individus, répartie pour la majeure partie au Canada et au Groenland. Le terme « inuit » provient de l’Inuktitut qui signifie « humain, personne », le pluriel est « inuk ».

Marjorie Kelly: Divine Right of Capital Berrett-Koehler Publishers Buy on Amazon Find a local bookseller on IndieBound William Greider writes in the Foreword, “Can we imagine an economy in which firms are typically owned in large part by the people who work there? In which corporate boards of directors are required to exercise broad fiduciary obligations to all of the stakeholders in the company — employees and community as well as absentee owners? In the traditional model, the corporation is a piece of property owned by shareholders and responsible only to them. Praise for The Divine Right of Capital “Marjorie’s book will exhilarate you, because it is such a thorough de-masking of the indefensible.” — Paul Hawken, The Ecology of Commerce: A Declaration of Sustainability “I’ve been recommending this book to everyone I know. “This is the back story in the Enron fiasco, the one the mainstream media won’t touch.

TFSR The Seven Shamanic Levels of Consciousness Preface Although formerly only known by shamans, I present this knowledge now to spiritual seekers and for the benefit of mankind.In 1989 I met a Hungarian Shaman, Joska Soos, in Antwerp, Belgium, who helped people with his private "shamanizations" and classes. Over the years I learned a lot, with new information about shamanism I had never read about in any literature. Among it was the system of seven levels of consciousness. Table of Contents Introduction 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. The Wheels of Consciousness Introduction What makes man different from animals is that he is aware of himself. 1. Awake, dear one, awake! You just made the first big step in your spiritual growth. 2. Mankind is one,and all men are alikein that which concerns their creation. Most people live on an egocentric basis. 3. To see a world in a grain of sand,And a heaven in a wild flower,Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.William Blake You became aware of yourself and your personality. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Transnational Institute How therapy practice can be seen as a neo-shamanic healing journey I have long been intrigued about viewing the process of therapy as a sort of neo-shamanic journey. I am not talking about using ancient shamanic procedures as healing tools. I am talking about a sense of connecting with archetypal experiences in finding the place inside us from which change and healing are possible. The following describes some of the ideas behind this approach. The shamanic world The shaman of old would enter the realm of the spirits, the one place from which order and balance could be restored from the chaos of disease. The work of the shaman was integrated into the belief system of the society as a whole. Dealing with the experience of overwhelm The shaman was the mediator between overwhelmed humans and the active forces that were seen to have power over the world. Today, we no longer believe that the world is made to work by anthropomorphic spirits. Narrative, metaphors and personal experience The neo-shamanic journey See also: Collective Implicit
