Saybrook Alumnus and Faculty Member Bob Flax, Ph.D., '92 Elected to Board of Directors of the Democratic World Federalists

Bob Flax, Ph.D. was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Democratic World Federalists, a non-profit organization based in San Francisco (http://www.dwfed.org/). The DWF is one of a number of organizations around the world that is dedicated to establishing a democratically elected world government with a constitution and bill of rights that is capable of handling the great problems of our time -- including climate change, economic crises, famines, pandemics, poverty, and war.

Bob’s interest in world government grew out of his work as a clinical psychologist treating individuals, couples, families, and groups. He expanded his focus to include larger systems and studied organization development and conflict resolution. He has worked in a wide range of settings, including businesses, non-profits, intentional communities, and over 16 years with the California State Prison system. Finally he arrived at the next logical step – the way we work together as citizens of the world. Bob has participated in international citizen diplomacy projects and is currently designing a course in World Federalism for Saybrook University, where he has been on the faculty for over 18 years. Bob teaches courses in the Social Transformation, Psychology and Research areas and can be reached at bflax@saybrook.edu.

Alumna Jean Millay, PhD '78 was Invited to Discuss Her New Book at the Foundation for Mind/Being Research

05/04/2011

Saybrook graduate Jean Millay, PhD ('78) was invited to discuss her book -RADIANT MINDS: Scientists Explore the Dimensions of Consciousness - at the April 22nd meeting of the Foundation for Mind/Being Research. www.fmbr.org

The book is an Anthology of the Parapsychology Research Group, with 55 authors participating.

Jean's main topic involved the suggestion that there may be a 5th fundamental force in the universe, beyond the 4: Gravity, Electromagnetism, the Weak and the Strong Nuclear Forces. The 5th one would be The Consciousness of Life. Her intention was to evoke a lively discussion about this possibility.
