June 26, 2018 Hear the podcast: Riane Eisler is interviewed by host Ba Luvmour on Meetings With Remarkable Educators. Eisler explores the dynamics of the Domination-Partnership lens—how do we break the habits  and patterns that feed social systems sustained by a domination mindset? Can we begin to let go of patterns that are maladaptive by shifting our ways of thinking in the context of the partnership lens? Riane Eisler: “Linguistic psychologists point out that language, and especially linguistic categories that a culture makes available, channel our thinking. For example, for gender relations we…continue reading →

Realities Missing from Political Debates

Politics and entertainment used to reside in separate spheres. But in this year’s Presidential campaign coverage, they’ve converged. While this has driven up TV ratings and network incomes, it’s been a dangerous pastime for a country already behind in the things that matter. In the heated exchange of taunts and putdowns, even the questions to candidates have ignored one of the most serious threats to US economic competitiveness: our nation’s failure to invest in our children — our future human capital. The people who want to lead this country have to start talking…continue reading →

It is excerpted from an article in the January/ February 1991 issue of Futures, an international journal based in Great Britain. All around us, the world-including the workplace- is in flux.

Spiritual Courage

by Riane Eisler Adapted from Eisler's book The Power of Partnership: Seven Relationships That Will Change Your Life (2002). Spirituality has become the word of the hour. But what is spirituality? What does being spiritual mean? For me, as for many others, spirituality means feeling at one with that which we call the divine. But when I think of the divine I do not think of it as separate from our lives, as otherworldly, as "out there" rather than here. I think of our own most evolved qualities: our profound human capacity for…continue reading →

Women’s Issues – Key to Peace

By Riane Eisler Some say war is inevitable, but Dr. Riane Eisler's research shows that we can build cultures of peace -- partnership cultures. The first step is to examine the position of women in society because a study of 89 nations showed that when the rights of women are protected nations thrive! Do wars make us safer or do they create and intensify the cycle of violence that puts us at risk in the first place? In this nuclear and biological age, can we survive if peace is only an interval between…continue reading →

Dark Underbelly of the World’s Most ‘Peaceful’ Countries

By Riane Eisler in The Christian Science Monitor, July 26, 2007 Some nations that rank well in the Global Peace Index are notorious for violence against women and children. Out of 121 countries studied, the United States ranked 96; Israel was 119. But Libya, Cuba, and China – not exactly paragons of human rights – rank 58, 59, and 60. The first-ever study ranking countries according to their level of peacefulness, the Global Peace Index, was recently published by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Sensibly, its basic premise is that "peace isn't just the…continue reading →

Creating Partnership Futures: My Life, Work and Vision of the Future

Some people think the vision of a more equitable, less violent future is merely a utopian dream. A goal of my work has been showing it can be a viable model for transformative change and that the key components of such a model can be identified through cross-cultural and historical research. Influences Like everything we do, my research was influenced by my life experiences. Salient among these were my parents' flight with me as a small child from Austria (where I was born) after its takeover by the Nazis, my later childhood and…continue reading →
