How is Yoga related to the world (and thus peace?)

I'm not sure how to answer this myself. It's something I want to continue growing and researching and helping others understand too.

 

Thus, I'm reaching out to you, knowing that together we are better!

 

I'm looking for academic and non-academic papers and books, blogs, and anectodal stories from well-established mass-media sources (and another other relevant information) related to yoga & the following topics:

PROF ARGONZA’S TV5 INTERVIEW ON ‘HENPECKED HUSBANDS’

PROF ARGONZA’S TV5 INTERVIEW ON ‘HENPECKED HUSBANDS’

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

“Are you an under the saya?” is one querry that can put husband off-guard. It is taboo for henpecked husbands in the Philippines to admit to their being 2nd fiddle to their respective wives, and one should share generous thoughts of accolades of one such husband who would make a disclosure of his subordinate state in a marital…

Media set stage for vigilante justice

Would anyone be surprised if some crazy gun-toting vigilante killed the most hated woman in America?

 

I am not predicting this, nor am I advocating it. In fact, I sincerely, fervently hope it doesn’t happen.

However, if mob justice does prevail, a good portion of the blame should rightfully fall upon the media, and especially the inflammatory rhetoric that has aired, and is still airing, on HLN. Especially noteworthy for its wallow in the gutter is the nightly program…

Prisoners Have Nothing to Gain by Eating

Prisoners risking death by refusing food in the Pelican Bay supermax, and those hunger striking in solidarity in prisons around California are a judgment of our sickness. "The degree of civilization in a society," said Dostoyevsky, "can be judged by entering its prisons."

Civilization is something we no longer seem to aspire to. The United States locks up more people and a greater percentage of its people than anyone else. We lock them in training centers for anger and violence. We…

Getting a second life – the victim of June 13, 2011 suicide bombing speaks.

Getting a second life – the victim of June 13, 2011 suicide bombing speaks.

 

Monday June 13, 2011 was another day at work, and Waseem Umar went to the bank at about 2:30 pm, for a transaction. Parking his motorbike in front of the bank next door like so many times before, he admired the red colors of its signage. The guard at the door frisked him with a hand held metal detector, and waved him in.

 

As he sat with the customer service executive, she asked him for…

IN AID OF CITIES: REGIONAL BANK SHOWCASE

IN AID OF CITIES: REGIONAL BANK SHOWCASE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

“The Way to Sustainable Dialogue and Peace”

  • In my opinion, there are many types of dialog, but I focus on the dialog between moderates of religious, political, and civilian sectors in Middle East.
  • In new middle east - after transformation in the power - people in Arab countries must start with Political reforming and moving  toward democracy during the civil constitution to become a protective fence\framework from extremist thinking, and be a real supporter for the deployment of a just and lasting peace in this…

Expressive Arts in Peacebuilding

Discussion Thread

 

There is a magic that transcends the verbal that the Expressive Arts (what I call the Muse Arts in my work) is able to tap into in a very real, tangible and powerful way.  The Muse Arts aren't new by any means, nor is the concept of using them for healing, transformation and bridgebuilding.   For thousands of years people have used music and…

DEPOPULATION, GENOCIDE: GLOBAL OLIGARCHY’S POPULATION AGENDA

DEPOPULATION, GENOCIDE: GLOBAL OLIGARCHY’S POPULATION AGENDA

Erle Frayne Argonza



Good morning from Manila!

Those more aware fellows on Earth may be reflecting right now about the long-term agenda of the global oligarchy regarding population. We note the rise of the neo-Malthusians within and outside the UN and international bodies from the 70s onwards, their position buttressing the toxic ‘greenies’ demonization of humans as the cause of…

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - Beyond the Genocidal Concept of Tribal Homelands (Mahmood Mamdani)

On the East African Federation

Mahmood Mamdani

'East Africa has two post-colonial traditions of citizenship', writes Mahmood Mamdani: territorial and ethnic. If the region is to have a political federation, it will need to be based on a common citizenship, he argues: 'Which one will it be?'

 

I became interested in the question of why the old community collapsed after I returned to Uganda from the University of Dar es Salaam in 1979. I spent months reading…
