Youth shelter Jombang

Our youth shelter in Jombang offered a seminar for the various authorities dealing with youths during and after release. I worked with the participants with what we call anger management. To asset them to become aware of their emotions, to learn to dis-identify and identify, learning to observe as well as transforming anger. It was a successful event, with participants leaving with tools to be used on their own.

Gaja Mahda graduation

My dear friend and colleague , head of the indiginous psychology department at Gaja Mahda university in Jogjakarta was given the professorship. I was in the unique position to be attending, and looking around the room of approx 400 pople I seems the only Western face there. It was a quite powerful event, first all the professors entering in their togas with they hats on, the one hour speech of my friend Bo Kwartarini, the individual congratulations of 400 peoples and a huge buffet. A very impressive affair. I was told, that the professorship, which is bestowed by the state as well and the university is quite difficult to achieve and there are not many. I felt quite honored to be invited to this event.

Trip to Santa Fe

Santa Fe in New Mexico is a desert area at 1800 m altitude. Margret spent more than 2 years here doing her acupuncture studies. This time she visited Jeanne, who studied with her in the same class, at her beautiful home to exchange and update on each others learnings and techniques.

New Mexico is also called the land of enchantment and most of the buildings are in Adobe style, that is mud brick buildings. It rains very rarely and it is very dry. The Adobe houses can be built in very organic shapes and they keep cool during  the hot days.
Jeanne’s house is a wonderful and lovingly self built and decorated house.
