In this book, legal, biomedical, psychosocial, and social science scholars and practitioners offer the first comparative account of the increasing dependence on expertise in the asylum and refugee status determination process. This volume presents a comprehensive study of the relevance of experts, as mediators of culture, who are called upon to corroborate, substantiate credibility, and serve as translators in the face of confusing legal standards that require proof of new forms and reasons for persecution around the globe. The authors provide insights into the evidentiary burdens on asylum seekers and the expanding role of expertise in the forms of country-conditions reports, biomedical and psychiatric evaluations, and the emerging field of forensic linguistic analysis in response to emerging forms of persecution, such as gender-based or sexuality-based persecution.

Mit der Hawaiianischen Ho'oponopono-Methode zu Gesundheit, Wohlstand, Frieden und Mehr

Ho'oponopono ist eine schamanische Heilmethode aus Hawaii, die helfen soll, Konflikte und persönliches Fehlverhalten aufzulösen. Dabei geht es vor allem um Aussöhnung und Versöhnung, nicht nur im Bezug auf andere, sondern vor allem auch mit sich selbst. Hierin liegt das Rezept für ein langes, gesundes Leben in Reichtum und Wohlstand, denn ähnlich wie in der karmischen Lehre resultieren auch für viele Hawaiianer Krankheit und Armut aus persönlichem Fehlverhalten und Negativität. Übersetzen könnte man das Konzept, das auf Erkenntnissen des hawaiianischen Therapeuten Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len beruht (Self-I-Dentity through Ho'oponopono), am besten mit "etwas richtig stellen", "etwas in Ordnung bringen" oder auch "Fehler wiedergutmachen". Es beschreibt nichts weniger als den Weg zur Vollkommenheit. Joe Vitale wendet den alten hawaiianischen Brauch auf unser Leben heute an und fokussiert sich dabei auf Liebe, Vergebung, das Leben im Jetzt und Verantwortung für alles zu übernehmen, was uns in unserem Leben begegnet. Wir lernen zum Beispiel unser Unterbewusstsein von alten Wunden und Fehlern zu reinigen und uns von vergifteten Erinnerungen zu lösen, um im Hier und Jetzt erfolgreich zu sein. Jeder Einzelne ist selbst dafür verantwortlich wie sich das Leben in Zukunft entwickelt, und Ho'oponopono hilft uns dabei unbewusste Programme aufzulösen, damit wir endlich all unsere geheimen Wünsche verwirklichen können - Gesundheit, Wohlstand, Glück - was auch immer. Joe Vitale führt uns zurück zum Urzustand, der frei ist von Bewertung, Vorurteilen oder Rollendenken. Einem Nullzustand, wo noch nichts existiert aber alles möglich ist und gibt uns 4 Sätze an die Hand, die uns heilen und uns lehren, in jedem Moment 100 % Verantwortung zu übernehmen. Es tut mir leid. Bitte verzeih mir! Danke. Ich liebe Dich.
