Episode 01/23 Wisdom Workshop: SCRUM in Intercultural Teams with Elisabeth Tieben (German)
What is Scrum? How can agile work be well designed in an international context? What are the challenges of agile working in a team that is collectivistic and hierarchical on the one hand and individualistic on the other? The independent systemic consultant, Elisabeth Tieben, has gained over 12 years of experience in agile project teams as an employed product manager, before she started her own business in 2022. I talk with her about the questions above.
Have fun listening to our conversation.
Episode 01/22: Daniela Sarrazin interviews me about “Endure and Trust” (German)
The first podcast this year, and this time I am interviewed by Daniela Sarrazin. Daniela describes the content in her introduction as follows: “In today’s podcast I get to have a wonderful, almost philosophical conversation with Purvi-Shah-Paulini. In it, we are talking about “enduring and trusting”. With a wonderful lightness, we address the topics of “enduring what is”; what “the” process of change does to us”; “trusting myself”; “accepting what my counterpart is all about”; “trusting your own life”; and ultimately, “believing that everything will be okay.””
Thank you, Daniela, for the lightness in this interview. I really enjoyed being on the “other side” for a change.
Episode 14/21: Wisdom Workshop “The Hayden Model” Interview with Julia Hayden (Interview in German)
“What are chakras in Hinduism are wheels in Taoism, for example, are plexus in popular medicine and spheres of the tree of life in Kabbalah. What in TCM is QI, we know in the West as breath or body fluids, the Vedas call it Prana. And in Japanese medicine the syllable “ki” in the word Reiki corresponds exactly to this life energy.
What in Hinduism are koshas, in conventional medicine are described as biosocial effect chains, and in Kabbalah teachings are levels of worlds.” From the manual The Hayden Model by Julia Hayden.
The Hayden Model serves as a facilitating toolbox to get closer to your inherent wisdom and power for self healing. It combines in a simple way, Western conventional medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine, with Jewish Kabbalah teachings, with Vedic philosophy from India, with your own knowledge.
The teaching cards explain in their simplicity through pictures and words the interaction of all levels of your being. They are very specific to use, adapted to the particular body, practical to implement, easy to understand and simple to use.

Episode 11/21: The Wisdom Workshop 4th Interview with Ajahn Michael on “Forgiveness” (Interview in German)
“Forgiveness is a coping strategy to be able to mentally accept an actual or assumed wrongdoing of others without expecting any reaction from the other (such as an admission of guilt, remorse, apology) or demanding justice (retribution, prosecution).”
But the question arises, how exactly do I go about doing this? That’s what I’m talking about with Ajahn Michael.
Episode 10/21: The Wisdom Workshop 3rd Interview with Ajahn Michael on “The Dependent Arising”
Whatever happens, happens because (under all the circumstances that could have been present) the very circumstances were present that led to the specific occurrence of the event.
This is about pure non-judgmental observation of the movements of our mind, which leads to understanding the impersonal nature of the process of arising of thoughts, feelings or emotions, as the whole chain of Dependent Arising sets it out, and the Four Noble Truths. It is about realization of the True Nature of things.
(From the course materials of Ajahan Michael)
Episode 9/21: The Wisdom Workshop Interview with Rolf Lutterbeck about “Consciousness Development” (Interview in German)

What is needed for a hopeful future for future generations?
Thank you, dear Rolf, for your deep friendship. It’s nice that we know each other!
Enjoy watching the video, which is accompanied with really informative slides.
Episode 8/21: The Wisdom Workshop 2nd Interview with Ajahn Michael “How does suffering arise?” (German)
Why does Buddha define complaining, birth, sorrow, etc. with the term “suffer”? You could say that these terms lead to suffering. Actually, they are not suffering per se. But Buddha defined it as above. Why? This is one of the questions Ajahn Michael has long asked himself. Through long research in neurology, psychotherapy and psychopathology, he has found tools to exactly understand this. He shares his interesting discoveries with us in this interview. Especially the discovery that Buddha’s teachings are congruent with the aforementioned sciences.
This interview is a continuation of the first interview with Ajahn Michael. But it stands for its own and can therefore be watched independently.
