Elicitive Conflict Mapping

Elicitive Conflict Mapping

Facilitators who are too much in love with their own method tend to enter into this form of resistance or distraction. The art of moderation lies in the balance between candour and the keeping of the contentual working structure.

This book completes Wolfgang Dietrich’s path-breaking trilogy of the Many Peaces; the foundation of the highly innovative approach to peace and conflict as taught and applied at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. Where Volume 1 elaborated the transrational philosophy of the many peaces and Volume 2 discussed the curricular and didactic aspects of elicitive conflict transformation (ECM), Volume 3 provides principles and examples of ECM’s practical application. The author drafts the easy use of ECM as a brand new method of conflict work that can be applied from both intra and interpersonal conflicts to the highest political and diplomatic level. This book would form an excellent basis for leadership and relationship training of future peace workers within the frame of elicitive conflict transformation.

The Screwtape Email

This book is darkly funny as it explores temptation in the classic tradition of satire. Dark as the subject may be, however, grace overcomes evil. That victory leads to hope. For the purposes of this book, the discovery of Screwtape's email correspondence continues to be a mystery. However, this email adds insight into Screwtape, the supervisor of demon tempters. Screwtape treats the apprentice tempters in the same way that Mr. Wilson treats Dennis the Menace. He has to operate on several levels to maintain his position, his wicked schemes and his ambition. References to his supervisor, Beelzebul, are found in Matthew 10:25; Matthew 12:24-27; Mark 3:22 and Luke 11:15-19. Flaming is the practice of sending resentful comments to an insensitive person who has violated customary practices on the Internet. When someone is flamed, the words that are in capital letters show what is being screamed at the person. "Black Hole" is a term used in physical science, and it refers to the stripping away of all qualities as an object enters it. Figuratively, it means the loss of all memories of who and whose we are, so that we forget and we are forgotten. The gravity in a physical black hole is so strong that nothing can come out of it, not even light. "The Light" refers to the Light of the World and this Light overcomes darkness. (John 1:4-5) In near-death experiences, people have reported seeing a welcoming light, sometimes at the end of a tunnel. A warning is in order. Since he is a self-important, bumbling and unfeeling wet blanket, the reader should not be surprised that Screwtape is not nice. Still, what else would be expected of such a demon? He is seeking the greatest harm for the greatest number of human beings. In addition, Screwtape may pull the wool over our eyes about ideas and facts. Therefore, the reader should not assume that what is said here is true, for false statements are of no concern for an agent of the father of lies. Reviews I enjoyed very much the email messages from Screwtape. You keep very well in the spirit of Lewis, but you also address many of more recent currents of the culture and the ways in which people are enticed off course. I think that Lewis would recognize your work as an effective continuation of his own. W.A.K. in North Carolina I enjoyed reading it. I had read "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis and this book brings it up-to-date. A.S.E. in Illinois It contains timeless truths as well as refearences to current events. C.E. in Illinois It was fun to read and I got a lot out of it. R.D.S. in Virginia "THE SCREWTAPE EMAIL chases the reader from one human situation to another with a great diverse collection of metaphors to illustrate. The first response is, 'Ah, I don't do that.' But immediately the next thought is, 'Well, maybe I do!' The use of hyperboles turns human foibles into humor, so we can endure the images of ourselves, while at the same time it provides a serious warning to beware tricks of the Tempter." -M.A.O. in North Carolina

The Art of the Sublime

The Art of the Sublime

Distaste and the desire for moderation are understandable dispositions in the tourist who masquerades as a connoisseur. ... these distinctions have developed to the point of distraction from that sacred mystery over which it stands.

In the view of Hegel and others, pagan art is the art of the beautiful and Christian art is the art of the sublime. Roger Homan provides a comprehensive and informative account of the course of Christian art, encompassing a re-evaluation of conventional aesthetics and its application to religious art. Homan argues that taste and aesthetics are fashioned by morality and belief, and that Christian art must be assessed not in terms of its place in the history of art but of its place in Christian faith. The narrative basis of Christian art is documented but religious art is also explored as the expression of the devout and as an element in the trappings of collective expression and personal quest. Sections in the book explore pilgrimage art, puritan art, the tension of Gothic and Classical, church architecture and the language of worship. Current areas of debate, including the relationship of ethics to the appreciation of art, are also discussed. An extensive range of examples of painting, architecture and decoration, most of which are of European origin, are discussed throughout, with a number of striking illustrations included within the text.

Focusing on the questions "What is the purpose of worship?" and "Why are the arts an irreplaceable part of good liturgy?" Bishop Rouet, in Liturgy and the Arts, maintains that the arts should disclose holiness within the ordinary. The role of the arts in Christian life and in liturgy is to illustrate God's presence and to release the sacramental potential of the world. He stresses that in order for that to happen, liturgical artists and Church leaders must dialogue and cooperate in providing a faith community with a liturgical environment that leads to meaningful worship. For Bishop Rouet, the arts are indispensable to human existence; they are necessary for the incarnation of faith. Indeed, as he puts it in his introduction, "Faith is not simply an individual thought process, nor personal opinion; nor is it only the public witness of a person. Faith produces a way of living, therefore culture, and thus, art." Readers of Liturgy and the Arts will experience a genuine joy in contemplating this thoughtful Catholic bishop's convincing argument that the Church cannot do without the arts. Chapters cover liturgy and art forms such as music, sacred space, and dance. They are: "The Arts and Liturgy," "Artistic Expression in the Church," "The Shepherd of History: 'The Times That We Create'," "Ecclesial Space," "Dance and Faith," and "A People Baptized for the Work of Praise."

The biggest challenges in public health today are often related to attitudes, diet and exercise. In many ways, this marks a return to the state of medicine in the eighteenth century, when ideals of healthy living were a much more central part of the European consciousness than they have become since the advent of modern clinical medicine. Enlightenment advice on healthy lifestyle was often still discussed in terms of the six non-naturals – airs and places, food and drink, exercise, excretion and retention, and sleep and emotions. This volume examines what it meant to live healthily in the Enlightenment in the context of those non-naturals, showing both the profound continuities from Antiquity and the impact of newer conceptions of the body.

This study addresses the question of whether a coherent sequence of pericopes can be identified in Matthew chapters 19-20. Employing audience-oriented criticism, it argues that the authorial audience's knowledge of the philosophical tradition concerning household structures provides that coherent sequence. But the audience also encounters in these chapters a critique of the household tradition's patriarchal and hierarchical structure of the rule of husband over wife, father over children, master over slaves, and the accumulation of wealth as an indicator of social identity. It understands that the community of disciples is to exhibit more egalitarian patterns. this alternative structure is placed in the context of wider socio-cultural forces which were also resisting aspects of the conventional household pattern. Features of the alternative structure - opposition ot hierarchical structures, a more egalitarian pattern, a temporal framework, marginal social location, minimalization of gender differences and authority roles and relationships, opposition to wealth - can be seen as aspects of an existence which Victor Turner identifies as normative or permanent liminality. that is, the study of chapters 19-20 contributes significantly to the formulation of the larger pattern of Matthean discipleship.

Building on her fundamental texts The Art of Acting and The Art of Speech, Dawn Langman shows how the great dramas of Western heritage illuminate the evolution of human consciousness – from the past and into the future – thus providing a context in which actors can consciously evolve their art. Having laid her foundation by exploring the Eleusis Mysteries – the seed point of Western drama – she moves to the end of the nineteenth century, when drama and performance practice prepared for its next great evolutionary leap. She explores the connection of this leap to the evolutionary threshold facing human beings at the end of what occult history calls Kali Yuga. Weaving back and forth between future, past and present – guided by the great cyclic themes of human soul and spiritual development – Langman shows how the inspiration of our greatest artists springs from a source of knowing that encompasses the high calling of the human being to mature beyond its biological inheritance, and to become a conscious co-creator with the macrocosmic powers that serve the evolution of the universe. In doing so, she clarifies the specific function drama has in our contemporary development within the spectrum of the arts. ‘Building on the first two books of this extraordinary series, Langman’s meta-historical analysis of drama lays the foundation for her ongoing explorations into an art of acting that takes fully into account the multidimensional nature of the human being. Here, she masterfully contextualizes the 20th century contributions of Rudolf Steiner and Michael Chekhov within the broad trajectory of the Western dramatic and theatrical tradition’. – Dr Diane Caracciolo, Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, Adelphi University, USA 'Mapping a meta-history of Western Drama, Langman unfolds a pathway for “future” actors and those who seek an understanding of the metaphysical in theatre. This work will inspire anyone interested in the psychic and spiritual evolution of human consciousness.’ – Dr Jane Gilmer, freelance theatre practitioner based in New Zealand, teaching internationally
