Learning from the future

Creativity as one could say is learning from the future as it emerges.

Most people know this because we are all born with Creative Interchange (CI) but we learn a second reality. …………..

Creativity is the child`s brain

The world-famous painter Pablo Picasso was convinced that every child is an artist. So he trusts in life, he trusts in mankind but he didn’t trust in growing up in a specific environment. He didn’t trust in education.

He adds that the problem is staying an artist when you grow up. I think his idea is worth to be thought about. Especially in times of bigger stress on children in education at school and when they grow up in their Job.

When do we I ask myself return to nature like education, to creativity



which is part of childhood and the brain of childhood. Why dont we trust in our children and the vibrant self-regulation of development. 🙂

Brief historical background of the Bioenergetic Analysis (BA)

The psychoanalysts Wilhelm Reich, Otto Fenichel and Sandor Ferenczi had put the body into the focus of their interest in psychotherapy. Since then, a variety of body psychotherapy schools had been developed.

Shi Mingde, the Chinese Ambassador in Germany, on development, trust, justice, innovation and the people

Yesterday I visited the German-Chinese Economical Day 2013 in Cologne which was organised by the Deutsch-Chinesische Wirtschaftsvereinigung e.V. The opening was presented by the Chinese Ambassador in Germany Shi Mingde.

He talked about the possible consequences which will follow the big reforms in China. Among other aspects he pointed out the importance of the economical development and the importance of the “market principle”.

At the same time, and this I will keep in my mind, he pointed out …………..

Failure instead of discipline is necessary


Often people fear that they’re lost when they feel that efficiency and money as highest values. This happens often especially when you’re brought up in a culture of high discipline. In such an education, under such a development or in such a culture there’s no space for failure.

But to be honest; it’s very human, that ………..

 Change (2) and integration

Some days ago I talked about change, mergers and development in China and Europe. Today I want to line out another model of approaching change.

To begin with I want to remind you about how a merger usually functions in western countries.

Mostly there’s a strong partner and a weak partner. Mostly the strong partner tries to get the small partner (though often this is not addressed too directly and openly). Then, to make it short, management tries to find synergy effects, tries to reduce costs and to bring people together in a team or in a unit being convinced that if the employees are put together they will work together sufficiently and successfully.

As I told you already this kind of management fails in about 70-80% of those mergers.

If change develops like this, this process often …………..

Enjoy your (traditional) culture – a model of connected thinking

When talking to Chinese here in Germany I often face a strong affinity to their own culture. Once I heard that an ancient book, probably written three – or four hundred years ago, is still listed on the book charts. It is and that astonished me really very, very popular regarding younger people. This could not be as possible in Germany as it is in China. 😉

When showing my astonishment the Chinese looked at me not understanding my astonishment. They were convinced that being connected to their cultural roots is a self-evidence.

Two weeks ago I talked to a Chinese woman who finished her IT-study and who had decided to earn her income not by working as an IT-specialist but by painting.

Of course she had been busy as an artist for
