    Great writing! The caring economy is indeed significant in the contributions to our social and cultural wellbeing. GDP is so bogus as a measure of national economic “success” because it’s rigged to ignore carbon costs or the very real cost to human lives from production of weapons of mass destruction. We need more weapons of mass Instruction! Indeed, I share your hurt for the attacks on education over the past 10 years. If we are to survive this war on education, we must go underground, to foster and care for communities of people working to better this world; regardless of the destructive ramblings of the uneducated, corporately corrupt, political puppets.

    Riane, I’ve just read your report, I think it is excellent! But it’s a long range plan. How can we put that into motion fast enough to address the urgency of climate change?

    It seems many of us have been shown this same vision. The Human Family being made of two wings-male and female-and the need of these two wings to be balanced and working together in order for the Human Family to fly. To see from above solutions we can’t see here on the ground.

    Dianne Eister, I came across your name yesterday in the book by Martianne Willianson, Healing the American Soul. The page I’ve read for years. The need of the Native American Voice to heal our country. I am so glad you are doing what you’re doing. This center sounds wonderful!

    I married a full-blood Tlingit in 1963 and am now as red as I am white. The red and white within me more at peace. Why I call myself Pink Eagle. It only takes a tiny bit of red to make white pink.

    Greetings from London
    My name is Carina Coen I would like to share with you my eco mythology educational fantasy novel
    “Sylvie’s Wish” as I believe story telling has a unique way of opening people’s minds and hearts as to how we can heal the complex issues facing our environment and how to love ourselves and change the economy into a Caring Economy. I am truly inspired by these wise women coming together and want to share my work with you. I only have my book in physical form printed on recycled algae with bio degradable inks and now available in my local library as I feel immeadiate community and those around you is the right place to start to share this important message about the divine feminine.

    I am a veteran Brazilian writer and journalist, and have been an admirer of
    Riane Eisler in the last 20 years, at least. But I dont know if there is any movement here in Brazil interested in propalling her ideas. Please inform me about this. I propose to do this job and, at your request, I´ll send more information about my career and my possibilities. I won the ESSO Prize of Journalism in 1980 , when I was working in Folha de São Paulo.

    Dear Riane
    My heartfelt congratulations – so well deserved!!
    Thanks for all you do for a better, more benign and peaceful world – I feature your stuff from time to time at the social media we manage at TFF.
    Also congratulations to the 30th anniversary of that classical book – that you introduced to so many in Copenhagen when we met for the first time.
    I wish you every strength and good health – the Western world is in deep crisis and the US Empire will fall. One must hope without more violence – and thereafter it will be a better world for us all, a cooperating world and not a confrontation/dominance/militarist world.

    When I first read The Chalice and the Blade in the early 1990’s I thought to myself, “She is describing my lived experience of the United States’ domination-filled health care system!” Riane’s cultural transformation theory gave me a language to call out the domination behaviors and a template for building a better system based on partnership.

    Congratulations on 3o years of building a better future!

    -Teddie Potter, Executive Editor of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies

    The Chalice and the Blade was instrumental in supporting my initially timid beliefs about leaning toward Partnership and away from systems of Domination. Because of Riane’s research, I have been able to introduce concepts of cultural transformation into many areas of my professional career. The Chalice and the Blade provided the foundation for my “heart work” — the creation of safe, healing community-based camps for child survivors of sexual abuse. I doubt that the camp program would continue today without Riane Eisler’s clear vision of transformative Partnership systems. The Chalice and the Blade is a tremendous gift to the world. Congratulations, Riane, on 30 years of commitment, dedication, and transformation!

    Fabulous Interview.
    If the paradigm shift is happening now (and it is!) it is in no small part because of the seeds of partnership thinking Riane has been planting for decades, tirelessly, with extraordinary grace and courage. Thank you, Center for Partnership Studies and thank you Riane!

    My warmest congratulations to you Antonella for this amazing award which you well deserve after years of hard work and sincere conviction in the importance of partnership studies. Thank you for encouraging many of us to be part of your group.

  27. Veronica Monet Reply

    I just began a #MeToo men’s group with the purpose of connecting men’s hearts and emotions to both their perpetrations and the ways in which they have been perpetrated against. What I am learning is astounding. These men are sharing how they have been abused by both men and women as well as the ways in which they have been abusive of others. My focus is on moving past the perpetrator/victim paradigm and into the human experience and expression of dominance and violence. I teach my anger management as well as my Five Steps to Exquisite Partnership. If you are interested in knowing more about my work, let me know.

    As someone whose work she has invited to appear in “Simplegadi” and as someone who has read her work on the goddess, I have experienced working with her an witnessing her work as a breath of fresh air as well as gifted.

    Vivissime congratulazioni Antonella. Carissima ed amatissima Maestra.

    Vermiglia rifulgenza un dì mi travolse.
    Dimora del nome dell’animo mio smarrito.
    Fucina di uno spirito che affannata rincorrevo.

    Nitido mi parve allor cammino,
    libera l’impervia strada,
    soave la fatica dell’attesa.

    Mi nominasti Dea.
    E riconobbi il mio segreto nome.
    Velato in una spira.

    Ti nominai Madre.
    E riconobbi il tuo segreto nome.
    Avvolto in una crocchia di Lupa.

    1) My Museum Curator, Gayle O’Hara, suggested I read The Real Wealth of Nations which leads to:
    2) no mention of the Bahá’í Faith where wars cease with gender equality;
    3) no mention of Matriarchal Societies, try China and Indonesia;
    4) how, suddenly, Y chromosomes disappear in Communist China and Saudia Arabia;
    5) infanticide data must specify 10% male, 1% male?

    Greetings! I’m especially pleased to see this student presentation video here, one of the more inspired I’ve recorded in the classroom. This team was from my least “academic” class last year. Nonetheless, at points through the year each member of this team produced at least one top essay. To have them all working together on this team, and on this topic, was pretty special.

    One compelling point about this video is the partnership values these kids demonstrate in their presentation. Though not as smooth and professional as kids in an honors class would be, this diverse team shows a cohesive collaboration in their presentation. They show a commitment to the common good. And they show a clear willingness to stand up for the rights of one another’s cultures.

    What partnership elements of the course and my teaching would you guess set them up to create this presentation?

    My message “disappeared” before I had finished. I was writing to respond to your posting and I wonder: Did my incomplete regarding conversation on how to promote cross-pollinate between Riane’s Partnership/Domination model and anti-racism work reach you.

    Many thanks!

    I am an over 60 woman living in Brooklyn, NY. Can you tell me if there are any groups near me where I can participate in promoting partnership programs for the needs of women in my age group?

    Thank you!

    For the past 26 years we have known you Riane And partnered many times in the empowering women and girls, especially through the books that you’ve been part of that our Teen Talking Circles Project has produced, especially Daughters of the Moon, Sisters of the Sun, which can now be only purchased on Amazon but sold 50,000 copies 💪🏿 and is still as relevant today. In all the years that I have been leading girls circles, I have been enriched by knowing you and your work. Thank you so much For being one of our very first advisers. You are booked the chalice and the blade was Seminole in my own education. It would be wonderful to get in touch with you again And I very much look forward to connecting with the Ashanti And learning about his work with men and boys. And to connect with all of the organizations that are supporting this.

    Miki I love everything you write about the questions we need to ask to move forward from a patriarchal system. EXCEPT. EXCEPT. WHY OH WHY does the word feminist need to be in there? The very word itself is separation. Implies duality in the existence of its antonym: masculine. Men suffer horribly from the inequalities fueled and perpetuated by the system termed patriarchy. The word patriarchy too sows angry resentful feelings …blaming, yes blaming, men for the injustices in the world. And what I am hearing is that people feel RIGHTEOUS about accusing men because there is a word naming the cause – and once named, making it real.
    If love to just talk about people. Us. All of us. So that those walls that words have -and are- creating can become wide open windows onto togetherness and abundance.
    I really would love to hear what comes up for you as you read this.

    Thanks for your article, Amber! In my opinion, we women don’t need to fill “every seminary, pulpit, synagogue, mosque, and temple”… as if we needed to “conquer them” and win the battle. We just need to abandon these patriarchals religions forever. I did. Firstly, it’s very unlikely that they change their mind because, for them, it’s God’s word that men have the authority over women. Bible says so. Apostle Paul said so. Women must remain silent. Period! …And, anyway, they are not “the truth” they claim to be. So, who cares? I understood this perfectly after reading The Chalice and the Blade. They are just religions born from these domination models, and there’s no reason for us as women to stay or endorse them anymore.

    I think the Bible was on theoretical stories gathered by mostly men to judge all humanity.
