Re: theory of personality based on archetypes

Do you see any benefit to my system? I think it helps you / acts as a guide in understand how your unconscious / subconscious mind works. It brings it to the surface and gives you an understanding of how you approach the world around you. How you would approach careers and people and what strengths...

Re: theory of personality based on archetypes

Actually, when you think about it, Buddhism is already a pretty good framework for examining the problems your system looks at. :popcorn: Kim How so? The Buddha taught a path to freedom from suffering and the causes of suffering. http://www.accesstoinsight.org/ptf/dhamma/index.html is a pretty good...

Hello. My name is Kimani Shorter. I have developed a typology based on Carl Jung's theory of archetypes.

Activism for arts practitioners

I just came across a site by and for arts practitioners who are interested in promoting social change - http://globalartscollective.org/wisdom.htm
It looks good to me so far and I thought some folk here might also like it.

Re: The cost of our cheap clothing

A 'Made in Bangladesh' label on your clothing is cause to be concerned about how it was sourced, aid organisations say. No more survivors will be pulled from the wreckage of the building collapse in Bangladesh that killed at least 381 people working in garment factories. The building housed thousan...

The cost of our cheap clothing

Something to think about when shopping ... A string of arrests have been made over the collapse of a factory complex in Bangladesh which has killed at least 363 people, as exhausted rescuers battled to find more survivors among the corpses. Police arrested three factory owners and two engineers afte...

Re: Buddhism and Gardening

Lots of good suggestions here - great! - but they would be more useful if we had some idea of the climate and circumstances they are useful in. For instance, I just don't have slugs or snails because I'm in the dry tropics, so the eggshell trick is not necessary. Neem oil? Never heard of it. Etc. TI...

Re: Nestle CEO: “Water is not a human right”

There are also parallels with CSG extraction - governments giving corporations the power to come onto any privately owned land, without the owner's agreement, and put down a well. Again, people are pushing back - a bit late and not quite hard enough at times, but we're learning - :jedi: - see http:/...

But I do think the kids should wait. Yes. We have laws that no-one can get tattoos before they are 18 and SRS is an immeasurably bigger step than getting inked. And there is the whole business of slowly developing sexual/gender identity. Looking at the way some teenagers are still changing, physica...

No, but I have met a Bahai'i missionary who served there before coming to my part of Australia. (True!)
