Citations de Freire

J’ai repris ci-dessous des citations de Freire qui me paraissent pertinentes pour la Constellation.

Devenir plus humains

«J'aime être un être humain, être une personne, précisément parce qu’il n’est pas encore certain, sans équivoque ou irrévocable que je suis ou serai «correct», que je vais témoigner de ce qui est authentique, que je suis ou serai être juste, que je vais respecter les autres, que je ne vais pas mentir et, ce faisant, diminuer la valeur des…

Paolo Freire (Français)

D’abord septique, je suis devenue fan. La pensée de Paolo Freire et celle de la Constellation sont très proches.

Dougoudouma, a tale from the future

I’m going to tell you the story of Dougoudouma, a village where life is good. Usually stories and tales start with “once upon a time”. But our story takes place in 2022!
