Book: Our earth! Our answers?

Our earth! Our answers?

If you flip through the book, soon read a text or feel the personal experience of the author in the Corona period, soon experience a poem that forces you to think about your situation on this earth, or words with drawings by a child, which are nevertheless very haunting in their innocence, you will feel connected and happy with all of this.
This book gives you great pleasure when looking at or reading it, as you step into the universe of someone else with its contents, shapes and colors.

With more than 170 texts by more than 100 authors, there is a myriad of longings, feelings, experiences and wishes in connection with ALL OF OUR EARTH.

The photos give the narratives, reflections, stories and poems a wonderful depth and show landscapes from the continents in which the authors live. The children’s drawings convey the mood in which they find themselves in this strange time of illness and isolation.

Above all, the book shows the splendor that nature has created and what man has “added” to it.
It takes you to parts of the world, to continents where you, reader, would have wanted to be born, to which your FERNWEH drives you, where you live or where you want to travel.

Our earth! Our answers?
German, Dutch and English, format 220 x 280 mm, 350 pages in hardcover
ISBN 978-94-90456-16-0

Martin Buber Academy for Humanics restarted

Our hands!

Hands are looking for each other!
Fingers stretch out
feel life, closeness,
Friendship, love,

Our souls breathe
push towards each other
touch each other…

Let’s listen
our HANDS!

Heinz Hof

Dear interested parties in the “Activities” of the Martin Buber Academy for Humanics!

After almost six months because of the pandemic it was impossible for us to continue studying humanism, we hope to be able to continue in good health soon.

This under the guide:


(Title of the new book by Werner Janssen, which will be published in September by the Euriade publishing house “EREBODOS”)

The focus will be on dealing with those human “FORCES” that form the basis for human dealings with oneself and the OTHER.

The program

  1. Humanism and humanism, an introduction to the terms
  2. Humanism and other “isms” (atheism, idealism, rationalism, fascism …)
  3. Humanistic directions and their starting points …
  4. “Our” OTHER humanism …
  5. HUMANICS or foundations of this OTHER humanism
  6. Considerations of the individual “human” forces

The emphasis is, of course, on the conversation that we have together and on the practical application of the knowledge gained in everyday life

At the end of this – basically never ending – training we are “true” HUMANISTS!

That means: PEOPLE living in RELATIONSHIP …

Estimated start: end of July, when we can use the HuB (theater) in Kerkrade again. Cost per seminar € 10
