Dr. Riane Eisler was recently a featured guest on the Inspire North podcast: Behind Greatness, in an episode so eloquently titled Building a World that Supports Capacity for Caring, Creativity & Consciousness.
“Greatness to me means really helping to build a world that supports rather than inhibits our enormous human capacity for caring, creativity, and consciousness. Which are at best compartmentalized and at worst suppressed in domination systems.” – Riane Eisler on Behind Greatness Podcast
In this discussion Luciano Volpe breaks away from his traditional approach to conversation as he focuses on Riane’s life’s work; ie. on Partnership systems. In this timely episode, Dr.Eisler briefly describes her experience as a Holocaust survivor as a little girl, and her voyage to North America.
Dr.Eisler and Volpe discuss domination systems that have both women and men living and operating in a world that deprives them of their full humanity. They also touch on consumerism and weapons of mass distraction.
Most importantly, the two discuss the characteristics of the original partnership societies where the cooperation of the feminine and the masculine produces a society where art and creativity are fundamental byproducts.
