What? Is your brain shutting down in the face of all of the convolutions it’s going through to not have to come to terms with the cognitive dissonance you are experiencing?

You’ve said, “Brown, Eisler, et al are scholars. And as such, they are rigorous in their work….they certainly aren’t mucking about in the gobbledgook you are on about.” And then when I quote you something from Eisler’s organization, The Center for Partnership Studies, you go apoplectic. Which is it? Is it rigorous or is it gobbledegook — you can’t have it both ways.

Here’s their mission statement — sounds pretty in-line with Lorelei’s profile descriptor. “The Center for Partnership Studies is a catalyst for cultural, economic, and personal transformation- from domination to partnership, from control to care, from power-over to empowerment. CPS’s programs provide new knowledge, insights, interventions, and practical tools for this urgently needed shift. We invite you to explore the many resources CPS offers to build a better future for yourself, your family, your community, your nation, and our world.”
