Dear Friends of Tamera, dear co-workers of the world,
We send you our best
wishes from Tamera. We greet you with
hope that this global insanity
will soon come to an end. Many things
that are happening in the world
are still so bad that we feel forced to
develop ever stronger methods
for its healing. In Tamera, we are going
through a time of intensive
planning which will continue until the
end of April. On the 1st of
May, a "new Tamera" shall start. We hope
that we will then
be ready to welcome all our guests and
A MESSAGE FROM TAMERA
8th March 2013: International Women's Day
"Over 3000 years of history have been imprinted by the dominance of men, establishing a principle of hard power. The power within male societies lay in breaking resistances, which was expressed in conquests, religious warfare as well as in the methods of education and technologies in treating nature.
By using these methods, modern man has maneuvered himself into a dead end from which he cannot escape without female support.
We do not intend to reestablish ancient matriarchal structures, nor do we want to dominate or patronize men. Feminine power is not targeted at men, nor is it targeted against our love for men – it simply, decisively leaves behind those male structures that have led to the worldwide extinction of life and love. (...)
Unless we women take a public stand, nobody can escape this dead end. It is up to us women to again assume the political and sexual responsibility that has been abandoned for so long. We invite all dedicated men to join our peace work.“
"Once one has seen the worldwide suffering of women, one cannot help but wonder how there can still be women capable of love. This is a deep historical point. At this occasion I would like to thank the entire female gender. There has to be a very stable and faithful heart in the female half, faithful toward the male half by whom it has been suppressed and beaten for several thousand years."
