CCI Europe 2014 in Germany
emotions, meaning, exploitation. liberation (2)
by Daniel Stosiek
Daniel Stosiek continues his sharing with our readers his thoughts around emotions, meaning, exploitation and liberation as he started in our last issue. Before his workshop around this item at the recent CCI meeting in Israel, I received a copy of his text. And I was impressed because what he said was fairly new to me. And sometimes difficult to understand. (Which is my problem!) The workshop did not really contribute to a better insights. That came later, after 'working' with his text. Now I need more time to process this information. It gives me anyway food for reflection and contributes to look at the CCI approach more profound. Thanks for sharing. Daniel. And what does it to you?
emotions, meaning, exploitation, liberation (1)
by Daniel Stosiek
Daniel Stosiek, member of the CCI community in Münster (Germany) was – again – in Israel last October, to attend the CCI meeting organized by the Dror community. Daniel facilitated there a workshop about his thoughts around emotions, meaning, exploitation and liberation. They are based on his experiences in Israel as well in South America. In his workshop – and in what he wrote to explain his views - he underlines how everything in our world is connected – and influenced – by everything. As participating in one big process! Thanks Daniel for clarifying and sharing that and thanks for showing how this impacts our views
The annual CCI international meeting 2014 will be organized from April 22 to April 27 2014 at Incarnation Center in Ivoryton, Connecticut, USA, and local co-counselors can provide travel assistance from, New York, Hartford, Boston, Providence and New Haven airport and train stations.
All those who have completed basic co-counseling training are welcome to attend . The flyer for this meeting, the 40ies in succession, says: 'we meet to validate, discharge and re-evaluate using the co-counseling process. We share our knowledge, skills and experience and celebrate our differences in an atmosphere of warm safety, joyful growth and interested caring.'
CCI Israel 2013
This writing is created about ten days – and later - after arriving home from the CCI meeting 2013 in Israel. It is meant to give some personal impressions of this CCI meeting in this for Europeans Middle East country. A country – for me - so rich with so many historic items, well known places by hearsay in the past and in the actuality of today. A melting pot of so many belief systems from the past and the present. These all, mixed with my personal history – and that of my family – makes it almost impossible to write about this country without honoring also my personal feelings. This country is for me very special, as this CCI meeting is, at the mount Carmel, part of the city of Haifa.
testimonial for co-counseling
In this article, professor emeritus of sociology Thomas Scheff , University of California in Santa Barbara, USA, reports about his very personal experiences some forty years ago. As editor of this CCI information service I want to honor and validate Thomas' personal initiative, to share with our readers this personal happening. He writes:
'When I was 40, 44 years ago, I had just gotten divorced, and my ex had taken our children to Hawaii for a year. Missing my children, and not realizing I could have gotten a court order to bring them back, I was miserable.
babies cry have a meaning
Coming back from the CCI (co-counseling international) meeting 2013 in Israel there is a lot to process. About that more soon and later. Because there is so much to deal with! One of them are the talks with individual participants about 'a simple introduction' of Co-Counseling International (CCI). Basic in my statements about that simple introduction are the emotional reactions already in babyhood. They prove, in my vision, that sharing and creating are also already basic human reactions. And they are related to emotional impressions. So there is nothing wrong with those reactions. Not in babyhood and neither later on. What anyway economic theories also might order!
Coming home my regional daily paper (Leeuwarder Courant) informs us about understanding 'why babies cry', mentioning a so called 'Dunstan baby language '. In about 0,24 seconds Google offers me nevertheless 74.500 results about this item.
backgrounds of a website
Using the search button (on top right of your page) of this website for 'CCI introduction', there are about 30 topics to look after. This indicates how important this topic is in the mind of the editor. That is right and started all ready in 1982 by sharing where CCI stands for. So this was also a topic at the recent Dutch CCI trainers meeting in Donkerbroek. Because for practicing the CCI approach, each member needs a partner, and a partner needs you.
So it is not only the CCI trainer who is responsible for the CCI future, it is in every member's interest. And so we talked about a very simple CCI introduction in Dutch to support and hook into the already existing emotional experiences by people who want possibly to know more about this approach.

Dutch CCI trainers meeting
For the first time since years, seven accredited Dutch CCI trainers met last weekend at Donkerbroek. They met on Saturday morning around 10 AM and left Sunday afternoon about 4PM. They will meet again in October 2014. Headlines of the actual meeting 2013 are, so we decided at the spot: a round about 'whom am I now, and my minimal expectations of this meeting'. And anyway we wanted to share our views about 1) the development of the CCI World Pass; 2) a simple introduction about handling your emotions yourself; 3) our future; and 4) on Saturday evening, a workshop 'voicing' offered by one of the participants.
The seven attending trainers decided to take time slots of 1,5 hour for sharing around each item; there was no recording and we all agreed upon the suggestion, that personal impressions would be published at the public website CCI World News Service and at the website of the Dutch CCI community CCN.
