Search results are ranked: the better matches are closer to the top. 

You can type in any range of words or sentences you want to look for.

There are 3 ways to enhance your search:

  1. You can add a '+' sign between words if you want the search to be for both words only when they are found together. (If you don't add a '+' sign, the search will include results for either word found alone.) Using the '+' sign will give you fewer results. For example, searching for 'harvey+jackins' will give you fewer results than 'harvey jackins.'  
  2. If you are somewhat familiar with programming you can use '&' or '+' for AND and '|' or 'space' for OR. 
  3. If you are more familiar with more complicated programming: you can use '(' and ')'. You can use these in combination with each other.

    Challenging My Internalized Oppression About Being Asian, by Unyong Kim. Present Time No. 97, page 41. Asian internalized oppression causes one to act in a manner which invites others to overlook, marginalize, distrust, discount the contributions, struggles, and concerns of Asians. To break the cycle, the direction for Asian folks to take against the internalized oppression is to interact with others with the assumption “Of course they will want to be my ally; I just need to coach them about me and my group.”

For many years most of us who did it were white Protestant English Gentiles. At this workshop there were seven people targeted by racism, seven Jews, nine LGBTQ people (as far as I knew), and several people with disabilities. I think there are two reasons for this change: (1) the work we have done makes it safer for people from oppressed groups to decide to do the work, and (2) the work we have done makes middle-class Co-Counsellors able to show themselves more, so we can see our diversity.

    A New Step for the RC Communities, by Diane Balser. The 2013 World Conference agreed to an additional requirement for being certified as an RC teacher: RC teachers are now expected to take a stand against pornography and make a commitment to discharge the related distresses.

    Jewish-Arab Unity, by Harvey Jackins. The following is a set of assumptions I worked out for myself before leading the recent workshop for Jewish-Arab Unity, in Israel. These were not distributed at the workshop, since they were my own positions rather than those of the workshop sponsors, but I read some of them aloud so the workshop participants would understand my attitudes better. There were many requests for them from workshop participants and, later, from others, so I am now distributing them.

  • The Six-Legged Table

    The Six-Legged Table, by Xabi Odriozola. It is not always easy to define RC. My definition has been changing over time. The more I make RC central in my life, the easier it is for me to provide an understandable definition of it for those who do not know about it. Sometimes I see RC as a big round table with six legs. One leg on its own cannot support the table.

Everywhere people are eager to do something effective about their conditions, even where their patterned appearance and behavior give a different impression. People are frustrated and sometimes turn to destructive outlets out of their frustration, but in reality they are everywhere anxious to take constructive actions. Lack of leadership and lack of policy are the crucial problems—the lack of leadership with a correct policy.

  • Complete Re-emergence?

    Complete Re-emergence by, Margaret Pevec and Harvey Jackins. I'd like to share some confusion about the RC idea of "complete re-emergence." Actually, what you keep re-stating in your letter is based on the fact that anything in the past cannot be changed, that is, that if complete re-emergence were possible it would already have happened in the past, and this is not true. The past is completely determined, but the moment of present time divides it from the future sharply and clearly.

    I Have to Leave Now, by Cherie Brown. Many Jewish leaders have been calling me about, taking a session on, or acting out intense feelings of needing to leave something now! It could be a relationship, the place where they live, their work or organizational commitments, or RC leadership. I often have these feelings myself. For me they are usually attached to my non-RC work. I experience them as an overwhelming feeling that what is going on[1] is unbearable and that “I have to leave now!”

  • Validation

    Validation, by Andrew Fono. Present Time, No. 35, p. 11. Harvey's article on "sag" ("Let's Pull Up Our Socks And Go") points out that our "brush-pile" of patterns exert a continual pull to not think. This pull or sag pops up in various and sometimes unexpected areas. One area where sag has crept in, almost unnoticed, is in validation. What happens is that we stare at each other glassy-eyed and utter clichés.

  • MHO Intertwined with Other Liberation Groups

    MHO Intertwined with Other Liberation Groups by Janet Foner. “Mental health” oppression (MHO) is intertwined in every oppression. It holds oppressions in place by preventing people in oppressor roles from discharging and by targeting people in oppressed roles for discharging.

  • It’s Great to Be Female: Key Ideas of Female Liberation

    It’s Great to Be Female: Key Ideas of Female Liberation by Diane Balser. As our societies have ever-greater difficulty maintaining themselves, the oppressions that have helped to keep them in place are being acted out more blatantly, and also challenged more openly. One of these oppressions is sexism.

  • Report to the 2017 World Conference

    Report to the 2017 World Conference, by Janet Foner. Our ability to handle the current crises and build a new society is intimately tied to overcoming the harshness of “mental health” oppression. The enforced holding back of discharge, the terror installed by the oppression, and the pressure to be “normal” make it hard to think about the big changes that need to be made.

    Being and Ally, by Harvey Jackins. For any group to progress in its liberation from oppression it is necessary that it (1) formulate a correct, workable program of liberation, (2) unite its members around that program, and (3) win allies for the group’s liberation among individuals and organizations who are outside the group itself.

  • "Normal" Patterns and RC Leaders

    “Normal” Patterns and RC Leaders, by Janet Foner. As we fully reclaim the discharge process, we go up against the irrational system/society. Being inundated with “mental health” oppression (MHO) is necessary for the system if it is to hold itself together. Society has to shut down discharge and make it seem bad and unthinkable.

    Die wichtige Bedeutung der Befreiungsarbeit der Mittelklasse, Sean Ruth. In der Vergangenheit haben einige Leute „Mittelklasse“-Unterstützungsgruppen geleitet, weil sie tief im Herzen wussten, dass es wichtig ist, obwohl sie kaum Theorie zur Verfügung hatten warum es so ist. Sie haben dies getan, obwohl es hart war, aber sie konnten nicht erkennen, ob das, was sie da tun, überhaupt einen Unterschied machen würde.

The shooter had Nazi symbols on his rifle and had posted anti-Semitic comments on-line; there is speculation that anti-Semitism was a motivating factor in the killings.

    Moving Everyone Forward, Including Ourselves From a talk by Tim Jackins at the Actively Getting RC into the World Workshop, in California, USA, March 2018. I think the questions to consider are as follows: (1) What is the most effective thing we can do to move us and the world forward to end the damage that is being done to people and the world? (2) How do we have a good life at the same time? And (3) Are these things in conflict? I don’t think they can be in conflict. Having a good life and moving the world to where everyone has a good life are in the same direction.

    Pushing for Change from a talk by Tim Jackins at the Actively Getting RC into the World Workshop, in California, USA, March 2018. The following is my analysis of the present situation: Our increasing and spreading rationality as RCers, even if we accelerate it, is not alone going to be sufficient to stop the destruction of the environment. The rates of change are too disparate. The destruction is happening fast, and undoing decades of accumulated distress is not a fast process. It isn’t that we’ve failed; it’s just not a fast process.

  • Réflexions sur le développement

    Réflexions sur le développement, Karl Lam. J'ai réfléchi aux raisons pour lesquelles notre Région1 ne s'est pas beaucoup développée ces vingt dernières années. Je pense que ce manque de développement a eu un effet pénible sur chacun-e d'entre nous personnellement, et sur nous tous en tant que Communauté de Co-écoute.

  • Getting Ready to Lead BLCD

    Getting Ready to Lead BLCD, by Alysia Tate. Black Re-emergence No. 12. I have been an RC leader for many years. I have been active in the RC Community, having sessions and attending workshops, for more than twenty years. I have taught classes and am a Regional Reference Person. Even with all of the sessions I have had about how racism and internalized racism affect me, it has been surprising to notice how much more work I must do as I prepare to lead a Regional BLCD in 2016.
