Dieter Duhm

Global Campus Study Text 102-01

Old fears have no more meaning within the new field. and not only in her private concept of love but in the concept of love of all representatives of her gender. There must have been a systematic mistake in her geistig concept of love. new rules and new powers take hold. The outlines of a new possibility of existence arise with the concepts of 'free love'. new perceptions. A woman who started to love usually also started to suffer after a while. 3 . and 'resonance technology'. rivalry and submission. In 1978 he establishes the project "BauhGtte" (. The theme of the experiment is "founding a community in our times" and embraces all the questions of the origin. would start to fade and to run dry. which actually should flourish in love. initiator of the "Plan of the Healing Biotopes".

Germany. If the new field does not originate from the mainstream or from ideology but instead from authentic geistig development. PhD in sociology. then it usually has a higher potency and higher power of survival than the old. It was connected with powers of destruction and of self-destruction. Dieter Duhm has dedicated his life to create an effective forum for a global peace-initiative which is a match for the destructive forces of the capitalistic globalization. This is also true for the new field of women. 'spiritual ecology'. a global peace plan. From 1975 comes a public distancing from the leftist dogmatism and shift to a more thorough human alternative. The old field was characterised by comparison. He makes a connection between the thoughts behind the political revolution and the thoughts related to the liberation of the individual and becomes known because of his book: "Angst im Kapitalismus" (Fear in Capitalism) (1972). In 1995 he founded together with the theologian Sabine Lichtenfels and others the peace research center Tamera in Portugal with today more than 160 co-workers. as the whole has gained a new orientation and a new goal. Dieter Duhm A NEW WOMEN'S FIELD (Lecture April 1992) Enter a new field. Dieter Duhm Born 1942 in Berlin. We can define the field as a conscious or unconscious geistig information pattern which steers the behaviour of all participants of the field in a similar manner. author and psychoanalyst.

When a woman runs after a man she runs straight past evolution. Women have their own function in the world which at first stands beyond all questions of relationship. The old issues of women do not need to be perpetuated. or she will suffocate this man with her motherliness.. a natural place of home for all men. I assume that it will soon take more power to maintain the old structures than to enter into the process of self-transformation. doubts and defence mechanisms mount up inside. When a woman becomes small in love. If woman could fulfil her societal role then therapy would no longer be necessary. No woman can unfold this inner dowry of sexuality. 4 5 . all of these are very strange processes as the woman is. one needs enough distance from one's own person. Maybe one already stands very close to new possibilities but still thinks and talks about them using the same old words and with the same old friends as if one was still the same person. We now need comparable information for a new women's role in free-love. It is like firewalking.When one starts to enter a new field. I will take care not to define this disposition. she has a different power and universality than only being the partner or girlfriend of one single man. She is more the orientation for the man than the man is for her. partnership and sexuality than before. If a woman attaches herself to one man then she will either fade because of sexual frustration. Sometimes it is a joke when men perform therapy. she is misunderstanding her actual role. Through her evolutionary role and through her connection with life. the permanent presence of her sexual nature and her lust alone are the sign of a very different disposition. In both cases. Suddenly one is much more strongly confronted with the questions of love. all of our cells adapt to it. To understand a new role in life. No one is seriously burned. Information becomes a field-building power if it gets around that "it works". Why should it suddenly be different now? But the information that it works anyway causes the miracle. painful. at first everything inside rebels. some women have to start and take it far enough that it actually does work without inner conflicts or secret suppression. the guiding power in the basic questions of love and life. once she has found her female and universal identity. longing. also in oneself. A mature woman is a sexual orientation and an orientation for the soul in every community. at first fears. But before it can get around and become known. But I will dedicate my male soul fully to awakening the female soul within the woman. ability to nurture and care for nature which creation has given her. the inner power surplus inherent in her universal nature could not be contained. We are living in a time of transformation and one should accept from the outset that the biggest changes are possible. One has to become geistically capable of no longer identifying with one's own biography and previous behaviour. In a certain way she is there for all men. someone playing the same role. A woman is. love-power. dangerous . And the continually returning inner questions and issues are also allowed to be silent for a while. in her archetypal form and function. the same woman looking for love or the same drinking companion. otherwise programs would again develop. From a distance. Her sexual power. When one decides to participate in this new exercise in a group.. in relationship to one single man. as fire is hot.

The man has the task of supporting her in this and of being "there for her". The theologian HeideMarie Emmermann described this truth incredibly profoundly and impressively in her book "Credo an Gott und sein Fleisch". healing. for all human communities and for all future healing biotopes on Earth. In the backyards of her heart she still wants to "attach herself" to a man. emotional truth. has basically assessed the function of the woman more or less correctly. They noticed that they are. as was the case in reverse in the past. she 6 7 . This authority is not based on power and punishment but on knowledge. The antiquated sweetness of a cottage for two was. liked going into the brothels because they experienced a certain kind of pride. and on the reconditioning of consciousness. the game of coquetry. the game of jealousy. I do not mean very young women.She is this simply through her authentic presence. through their sexual nature. The emancipation of the woman is not a revolution against the man. for all men. in reality. but women of about thirty or forty onwards. the game of helplessness. naturally be the love teacher of many young men. always the total submission of the woman to the man. if this is not made impossible by the prejudices and false sexual morals of society. despite the bad working conditions. for example. even the man of patriarchy. the game of innocence. not private but public and universal beings. The man. but the discovery of her real meaning for the man. cooperation with nature. The woman has the last word on all questions of community. which was lacking in their daily married life: they discovered their universal sexual power and meaning for the man. She will have seen through and let go of all former games of femininity. but he cannot claim one of them all for himself. A knowing authentic woman is the natural authority for all who are hungry and for all seekers. A woman at the age of forty steps into the prime of her life: the peak of her bodily beauty. Women who are aware of their meaning in this sense will not step into comparison and rivalry with each other because of the love they share for a man. but because it is her natural function and she is naturally visited in this sense. Of course he can try. In an organic community she will. The man is the energetic "recharging point" for the woman. except that he did not know the predominant social and political position of the woman which results from this. understanding and last but not least. The decisive social and political functions of a non-violent life-oriented society are much more the task of the woman than of the man. wants to fully be the servant of the man to the point of self-abandonment. her sexual power and her social function . joy and self-respect there. obey him and be dependent on him. but an intelligent woman will no longer follow this claim despite the silent seduction lying within it. This is her other side. The woman actually has a latent love for this kind of submission. Not because she has to satisfy her own addiction to youth. the game of seduction and rejection. of course on sexual joy. wants to be owned by him.and she will maintain her prime and her body for decades. I have known women who. But she will stop these submissive fantasies immediately when she has the possibility in real life to take on the position which she actually deserves. still wants to fulfil this time-honoured patriarchal commandment of the Old Testament.

This is a historic change of roles. 1 Like every new field whose time has come. They will create an aspect of life which belongs in the core of every organic community and which from now on can no longer be missing from any futurological project: the whole aspect of sexuality and healing. In love. 1 8 9 . However. whether they want to be or not. Now. so close to the source of life? When the first five women build a new women's field in this sense they will very quickly trigger a chain reaction in a hundred more women. as patriarchy falls apart. etc. all love-powers will tend to be liberated from relationshipthinking. The creation of a new women's field is a new step in the evolution of the human being and the evolution of life on Earth.will have stopped playing. because they are no longer forced to put their sexual powers on ice in the middle of their life. at the centre of an organic natural system of free sexuality. Youths will receive an introduction to sexuality which will save them ghastly detours and furtiveness. truth. A woman who is connected through her female nature with all the powers of life does not primarily represent a partnership and relationship oriented sexuality. Some women are anyway already noticing that they are more or less forced to develop in this direction: they no longer see a possibility of finding the "strong man" in whose arms they are allowed to remain small. It is the genuine field of women. They will profoundly change the future course of female destiny. but instead a universal sexuality. the little girl or the mother. then they will open a new possibility of female development for all women. belonging and home. She will have long ago let go of all these games as the foolishness of youth. The field hits such a central point of life that everything is affected. faithfulness. she can reconnect with the greater line of her life. Why should she continue to play such games when she is anyway. When the natural power of women is liberated from relationship-thinking. and they would best serve every human community by deciding to take on this role. when they no longer secretly try to copy their mothers. also in love. When they no longer fight each other because of a man. child-raising. The terms love. as soon as it has strengthened and spread. will have a different meaning afterwards than before.tions in the patriarchal epoch. and therefore had to withdraw. to an artificial role in patriarchal society. when they no longer chase after their longing in unfulfilled neediness. will gain a universal meaning by being brought into accordance with blueprint of creation that Is inherent in the roles of the genders. They have to provide support so that the men to whom they want to surrender can develop. she lost most of her actual public func. They have to bring their female knowledge to bear on societal and cultural decisions. The old field was connected with powers of destruction and self-destruction. they are the leading power. Gardening. natural sciences. with her female gifts. which stands at the centre of a new order of the genders. the new field of women will also have much more power and potency than the old. Adults will no longer have to cling to one single partner to get their necessary portion of sex and home. Children will be raised in a stable frame that is no longer dependent on the mood of two parents. ecology. architecture. trust. nourishment.

in the name of all men. how much distance they need.relationship with each other. an appeal to the first five women: create the new field of free love. the more the men can also overcome their deeply ingrained fear of sexuality. the more they can let go of their vanities. how much intimacy. A woman who follows the new field will never again have to complain about the scarcity of individual relationships as she has . This function is not arbitrary as it is always connected with the world as a whole.become the natural haven of all men. And I know men well enough to promise that men's emancipation will follow immediately when the first women have taken their big step. They are also in a universal we could also say transpersonal . In all of them. All things in the world are related to each other. sexuality.The new field grows thouqh positive affirmation of.because of her authentic radiance . then it will prevail "morphogenetically". and this relationship decides for itself how close they come to each other. they do not need any contracts of partnership or assurances of love. but women clearly now have to take on the role of midwife. The more fearlessly she stands in creation because of her new role. partnership. a word about the question of relationship. sun and moon relate to each other in a very specific way. Those who remain in the old field will no longer be able to cope with the challenges of the new time. All women who are still standing more or less open and alive in life. This is part of the game of life. and with her own function within creation. This relationship fulfils itself naturally through the fact that each participant fully takes on their actual function. develops. the possibility of a similar change in roles will be triggered. With the new women's field. Of course. but they will no longer make their destiny dependent on that. And the more men can overcome their fear. It is a shared step of human realisation. the term of "women's emancipation" will have finally gained a new positive universal meaning. If the new field is in accordance with the most essential life-interests of the woman. the most essential energies of life. will step into resonance with this field. The relationships between the entities of the world with each other are therefore not of private but of universal nature. The same is true for the relationship between the genders. they will also again and again fall in love with each other individually. Earth. Finally. 10 11 . as they have complementary functions and possibilities of love which are no longer bound to individual relationships. and care for. Therefore. etc.a human possibility of development also arises for the men. Beyond that. But nobody should force themselves here and now to take any decision. their machoism and their need to dominate.
