first_imgBy Jean Francois Moulinet, FFWPU FranceHilde Wiemann, a member and professional counsellor living in the United States, felt a calling to use her 25 years of experience to help our blessed families. As she has a good friend in France she decided to begin by coming here.She feels that too many of our members still face many blockages and barriers that have been built up and reinforced since their youth. If we do not take time to deal with these blockages and barriers, we will continue to be trapped by our self-created limitations.In her first seminar on Saturday (July 1, 2017) she guided the participants to reflect on their past as a means to recognize some of the experiences that reinforced those barriers. She also took time to show us an easy to implement communication exercise to learn to express feelings that can be applied in couples, families and even other situations.The seminar on Sunday (July 2, 2017) had the same content as on Saturday. The goal was to give as many members as possible that opportunity to participate in one of the two seminars.The Sunday group was able to open up more and express their situations and difficulties. Based on that sharing, Hilde organized role playing in which she showed how reflective listening can help in communicating with an angry child or in communicating with a spouse whose demands are difficult to accept.Most participants left the seminars feeling hopeful and positive. Of course, the real challenge begins as we go back to our daily life and we need to apply these exercises and techniques with our loved ones.last_img read more

first_imgNotes from HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal:Continuation of a creative process. Way to exploring the thinking of all of us. Responsibility to challenging conventional thinking about underlying causes for the loss of human dignity, marginalization… 100 million human lives suffer; migrants and wanderers are over 65 million. But that poverty doesn’t mean poverty of values. Howto join forces to deal with that? It’s sad to go to the ECOSOC in GE and NY, instead of joining voices in our own regions. Social global martial plan suggested. Security council is insecurity council because 300 billion dollars are spent in weapons to maintain security. Scientific and technological revolution forum in Amman shows new possibilities. Greatest issues affect us all and need to be looked at multilaterally. Black dots in the world, as zones of influence starting with Yemen, Irak… are they Arabs? Balkanization. Hatred has arrived because polarity causes wars and plurality is needed. Islamic tradition recognizes pluralism with interfaith conversations. Learning by analogy, secular or religious.Framework: interdependence. Common goal. Promote an identity, which is synergetic and pluralistic. Emphasize the importance of shared citizenship. 4 pillars of the region: Arabs (17%), Kurds, Turks and Iraqis.We need self-restraint and speak out! ZAKAD: humanity. Arab renaissance inherited from end of 19th century.World seen in black and white, partly economic. Without reference to culture, political decisions cannot improve people’s lives. Jordan has doubled population as a host for many and for too long. If Palestinians cannot live in their country and Gaza, it’s a ghettoization: separation of people from their homeland and values.Convergence of values and cultures. In Security Council, human dignity has to be at the center.Water energy and human values: wage peace is less expensive but lessrewarding than waging war. OBM’s obstacle building measures instead of CBM’s.Golbal compacts for migration and refugees made by UN need texts to secure education. Priority objective without discrimination. Fearless approach and speak out against chauvinistic nationalismReestablish the new humanitarian order founded in 1981 by Jordan to place humanitarian concerns in centerBroaden peace related to human welfareActively develop faith-based mechanisms and sponsor altruism, not just Islamic banking and economics. Communities of faith or no faith are necessary especially for youth.Model lobby of faith must act for equal dignity and citizenship and bring life and hope for future generations.Importance of dialogue between the principal ethnic groups: unceasingly stated that we are human beings before being of a different gender or religion. World Conference at the UN Religions, Creeds and Value Systems Joining forces to Enhance Equal Citizenship Rights Under the patronage of HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan By Chantal Komagata, UPF SwitzerlandOn June 24, 2018, I participated in the world conference at the UN with Noëmie and Mélanie. Natasha and Amira were there too. Astrid Stuckelberger had distributed flyers for it at our May 31st consultation. It was patronized by Prince El Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. I send you here the link to the video of General Secretary of the UN, Antonio Guterrez, a picture with Astrid, the notes I took about the prince’s speech as well as a picture of my thanking him and explaining about UPF.Many panelists spoke about one human family as well as the importance of faith-based organizations and religious leaders in the process of establishing peace and development.During the NGO committee for FORB, I was able to share about the meeting of September 21st.I do feel that things are changing at the UN giving more space for religion and spirituality. Also, God-loving people are somehow spiritually getting TPs’ vision of One Family under God!Chantal https://www.facebook.com/the.gchragd/videos/615094392192188/last_img read more

By Jacqueline Cain· Gail Simmons photo providedTop Chef judge Gail Simmons has traveled the world, not just for the 15 seasons of the Bravo TV show (the newest, in Denver, premieres December 7), but also over more than a decade with Food & Wine. And she is, unsurprisingly, friendly with many world-class chefs around the country: When the show was filming in Massachusetts, Simmons previously told Boston, she celebrated her birthday at chef Barbara Lynch’s home with 100 pounds of barbecue, care of Sweet Cheeks’ Tiffani Faison, and “we all sat around until 3 in the morning together.”While the average Top Chef fan will probably never get an invite to a private party with Gail Simmons, she’s given us the next best thing. Simmons’ debut cookbook, Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating, is out today, full of more than 100 recipes inspired by her world travels, and made accessible for family meals and easy entertaining. It’s peppered with lessons and tips from her friends—and Simmons, who spends part of every summer on the North Shore, counts among her friends some of the nation’s top chefs.Simmons is on tour now with Bringing It Home, and Boston fans can almost get a taste of partying with Simmons. She has three local events in November, including a conversation with Faison (no word on whether the Sweet Cheeks chef is bringing pounds of barbecue this time), and a cooking demo at Northeastern University. Check out the full lineup of events online, and channel your inner Gail Simmons in the kitchen with her new book.Gail Simmons in conversation with Tiffani Faison, $30.50 (includes a copy of Bringing it Home), Wednesday, Nov. 15, 6 p.m., Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St., Harvard Square, Cambridge, Tickets.last_img read more
