By Rainer Jaspers

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Soziologie - adjust, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Wir werden bunter, älter und weniger. In dieser Kürze kann der demografische Wandel in Deutschland zusammengefasst werden.
Wir leben in einer schrumpfenden Gesellschaft, die Lebensstile differenzieren und pluralisieren sich zunehmen. Wir erleben insgesamt eine deutliche Überalterung, bei der der Anteil der Älteren und insbesondere der Anteil der Hochaltrigen an der Gesamtbevölkerung deutlich zunehmen werden. Nach Schätzungen der Bertelsmannstiftung und des Kuratoriums Deutsche Altershilfe sind ohne einen Strategiewechsel in der Unterbringungspolitik jedes Jahr mehrere Tausend neue Heimplätze (bis zum Jahre 2030 bis zu 800.000 Pflegeplätze) zu schaffen.
Gleichzeitig erleben wir, dass tradierte Vorstellungen zur Unterbringung der Älteren an Akzeptanz bei den Betroffenen verlieren. Die klassischen Antworten „zu Hause allein – oder ins Heim" sind als alleinige Angebote zur Unterbringung nicht mehr vermittelbar.
Gewünscht werden Wohnformen, bei denen der Wohncharakter dominiert, aber gleichzeitig eine Versorgungssicherheit aus Hilfs-, Betreuungs- und Pflegeangeboten gegeben ist. Weiterhin werden kleine Einheiten, die sich harmonisch in das Wohnquartier integrieren, bevorzugt.
Im Ergebnis werden sowohl quantitative als auch qualitative Erweiterungen bei den Wohnangeboten für ältere Menschen benötigt.
As diesem Grund wurde die soziale Wohnraumförderung des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen als erstes Bundesland konsequent auf die Belange und Bedürfnisse einer älter werdenden Gesellschaft ausgerichtet.

Download Kabbala, Qliphoth und die Goetische Magie (German Edition) by Thomas Karlsson PDF

By Thomas Karlsson

Kabbala, Qliphoth und die Goetische Magie ist ein einzigartiges Buch über Philosophie, Psychologie, faith und Magie. Dieses Buch ist das Ergebnis jahrelanger Studien zu den besagten Themen. Das Buch ist nicht nur eine praktische Einführung in die Magie, sondern stellt die kabbalistische Philosophie in grundlegender Weise dar. Das Hauptthema dieses Buches ist die Erforschung der Qliphoth und der dunklen Mysterien, jener Teil der westlichen Mystik, der lange Zeit verdrängt wurde. Anstatt die dunkle Seite zu ignorieren oder zu verleugnen, enthüllt der Autor, wie der Mensch Schritt für Schritt seinen Schatten kennen lernen und dadurch mehr über sich selbst erfahren kann. Durch die Erforschung statt der Verdrängung des Schattens kann dieser von einer zerstörerischen in eine schöpferische Kraft umgewandelt werden. Das Buch beschreibt das kabbalistische image des "Baum des Lebens", die zehn Sephiroth und die zweiundzwanzig Pfade, die mit verschiedenen Aspekten der menschlichen Psyche korrespondieren. Als erstes Buch seiner paintings stellt Kabbalah, Qliphoth und die Goetische Magie auch die dunkle Seite der Kabbalah vor, den "Baum des Wissens", die zehn Qliphoth und die zweiundzwanzig Tunnel, die die Nachtseite der Existenz durchlaufen. Das Buch befasst sich mit dem challenge des Bösen, dem Symbolgehalt hinter der Geschichte vom Fall Luzifers und dem Schöpfungsprozess des Menschen nach der kabbalistischen Philosophie. Die in diesem Buch dargestellten Theorien werden mit einigen Praktiken und Beispielen für Rituale verknüpft; Meditationen und magische Übungen finden sich ebenso wie okkulte Korrespondenzen. Viele von diesen stammen aus der Literatur der schwarzen Künste, welche ein Jahrhunderte lang verbotener Teil der Europäischen Kultur war.
