Curanderismo: Spirituality and Healing in Oaxaca, Mexico by Sandra Hurlong, PhD
hurlong-20 "Ten Indians approached us wearing long white cotton robes which reached to their feet. They had long hair so matted with blood that it would be impossible to part or even comb unless it were cut. These Indians were priests...and they brought before us large containers of incense full of a resin which they called copal. With clay braziers full of burning embers they began to smudge us thoroughly with incense."
Cultures Clash, Civilizations Don't by Jan R. Hakemulder, PhD

Edited by Roxanne Toothman, M.S

March 7, 2011


Humanity repeatedly confronts the global economic and environmental conflicts of our times. For the future world, new strategies must be developed. Around 500 B.C., a transition of philosophy occurred along the Silk Road in China, India, and Southern Europe. It is my impression that at the moment--some 2,500 years later--humanity, again, is facing the need for fundamental global changes.

The Death of the American Feminist Movement by Lisa Shaffner, PhD, NCC, LPCMH


When I was a small child in the 70's, my mother became a feminist. She would gather with her like-minded women friends for long meetings around our kitchen table. These women were fascinating to me; braless, unshaven legs, no makeup, long unprocessed or teased hair, un-manicured nails, loose fitting long dresses and skirts and most of all flat sensible shoes. These women were my foremothers planning to change the lives of all women through a fight for equality and fairness and a refusal to conform to the male dominated cultural norms of barefoot and pregnant, uneducated and homebound, economically enslaved to a husband, a man's property, a servant to unrewarding domestic work, a sex object, and a breed mare for offspring. Halleluiah, deliverance was upon us.

Historical developments of the university system are highlighted and the contemporary paradigm shift.

The Tao of higher education can be summarized as Self Responsible Self Determination in service of the society, the nation and the world community as a whole.”



The city of Bologna hosts what Europeans think is the most ancient university in the world, founded in 1088. Just as the art of printing is not a European, but a Chinese invention, the eldest university also is not European but Indian.
