“Think Big — Creating Inner Space for Personal and Common Development” by Trond Overland 
Our earthly life is surrounded by enormous space. By generating a similar volume of inner space, we construct ample room for personal and common evolution and transformation. Intuitional science provides us with numerous activating techniques towards this end. A main key to creating an inner atmosphere of inspiration and personal workshop spirit is spiritual ideation: The Inherent Greatness and Fundamental Being of Oneness of All. Feeling great inside generates a cycle of increasing greatness within and without! Participation in the workshop required basic capacity to sit still for a few minutes and be with yourself, plus there was some personal sharing one-on-one and group interaction.

http://tinyurl.com/ NHESummit2013

This historic summit attempted to bring together all the leading neo-humanist & progressive educators from around the world as we delve deeper into the forces shaping the educational spaces of the future.

Besides hosting several interesting parallel workshops from participants, the summit  addressed some of the issues like:
• How can education contribute towards Enlightened Leadership via rejuvenation of values based on a scholarly & creative peep into the history of moral advancement & neo-ethics of multilateral salvation?
• How can education serve as a nurturing agency for enhancement of “Joy and holistic–health”-a variant theme of  Inner Ecology.
• How can educational systems serve the cause of “Right Livelihoods & Enhanced Quality of Life”; utilize science, technology and ecological awareness to improve the life for the common people on this planet; build sustainable habitats and neo-humanist futures for one and all. Khun Krisada Kampanatsanyakorn will be among those who will lead this conversation.
• What are the visions for “Building alternative educational-spaces” where humanity can reunite in spirit & action and what role can progressive- educators, activists & social-entrepreneurs play in nurturing such initiatives?

Among celebrated speakers were included: Khun Krisada Kampantsanyakorn, Marilyn Mehalmann, Cynthia Lazaroff, Marilyn Cooper, Eric Jacobson, Dr. Marcus Bussey, Dr.Sid Jordan, Henk de Weijer, Tang Taminga, Didi Ananda Rama, Didi Devapriya, Dada Shankarsananda, Christian F and many more..

Three-days Workshop on : Understanding Today’s Economic Crisis by Govinda (Stockholm) and Dada Shambhushivananda (Ydrefors) date to be announced later and expected to be in February-March,2012 Three Day Seminar on Economic Reality First Day: The Fundamentals of Prout The purpose of this part of the program is to introduce to the participants the fundamental principles of prout from which all policy suggestions are based. The advantage of this approach is that the situation in the world constantly change, and a policy that might be useful in one situation, may not be so in another. Therefore, simply memorizing a list of policy suggestions will not help when a proutist is faced with a new situation. If the fundamental principles are well understood, then each new situation can be analyzed based on these principles, and the right policy for the moment discovered. Second Day: Understanding The Financial System This is a one day workshop to explain the working of the world financial system. In essence, it is a simulation of the world economy on a kitchen table scale, which will open up the eyes of all participants to how the financial system really works. Be prepared to be surprised! Things are not always as they seem! Third Day: Understanding the World Economic System After discussing the financial system, this workshop expands the topic to explain the rest of the world economic system. Why is the capitalist system so successful? How does it produce so much goods? Where will the European Sovereign Debt Crisis lead us? Is there any possibility for a small community to opt out of the system? If you like to get some real answers, join the workshop!
