Book Launch: Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love
The latest book from Tamera’s co-founder Dr. Dieter Duhm, entitled Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love, will be launched at The New School University, hosted by the Environmental Studies Department, in a compelling evening event dedicated to the prospects of a new global peace culture.
A group of young activists from Tamera peace research center in Portugal will share about their engagement for a future without war and the project’s lived research for a realistic system change. For nearly forty years the Tamera project has been working toward a model for a post-capitalist society, engaging with the issues of ecology and technology for regenerative autonomy in water, food, and energy; the correlations between science, politics, and spirituality; new ways of raising children; cooperation with animals; and the most essential issues of love, sexuality, partnership, and community. Terra Nova encapsulates a vision for a new culture based on trust and a plan for how such a new development could prevail over the existing reality of war and exploitation.
Our evening event will be kicked off at 6:30 with a short musical performance (artist TBA). Dara Silverman (Eugene Lang alumni and Tamera co-worker) will moderate the event. We will show a ~five minute video clip, which was filmed by Ian Mackenzie in May 2015 during Tamera’s Global Love School. Martin Winiecki (head of the Institute for Global Peace Work in Tamera) will follow, holding a ~15-minute presentation about the projects global peace plan. Short selections from the new book will be read to conclude the first part of the event.
There will be a 15-minute break.
Part two of the event will be structured as an interview panel. Daniel Pinchbeck (New York-based author of Breaking Open the Head and 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl) will interview Martin Winiecki, Dara Silverman, Naila von Mendelssohn, as well as two or three other special guests (TBA). They will dive into the vast array of interdisciplinary work the project is engaged in, display the experiences had and insights gained in this research, and speak about how this can contribute to a future worth living.
Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love will be available for purchase, as well as other books from the Tamera project.
We will conclude the evening with a reception for networking.
