Hi Bergin. Thanks for responding to my friend request. The Islam book is in its last stage of editing. I'll keep you posted on this. I have done quite a lot of work on reproductive rights and sexual assault/rapes during the Bosnian war although only a couple of articles have come out of this. I am very interested in gender issues in conflict and 'post-conflict' situations, so I hope we will have an opportunity to exchange views/information at some point.
I am in Manchester with clients. all good here, but in UK for the next three weeks, spending some time developing a new facilitated commercial training programme in inter cultural dialogue and diversity. What news from you in your new Zen state? hahaha
After we accomplished the pilot project with young adults from 10 countries last February, we're ready to launch the Peace Revolution live project. We now open for people at all ages to taste INNER PEACE and an online SELF-DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. Moreover, for those ages between 21-30 years old who register before 31 August 2009 will have a special privilege to seek for scholarship to join the international conference in Thailand in February 2010. If you're interested in, please do not hesitate to register and try our 4 stages of fun and dynamic self-development. Or if you could think of some of your friends or network who may interest in this initiative, please kindly send our invitation or website to them. Thank you very much. We're looking forward to hear from you soon. Let's collaborate to heal the world we live...!
