Now everyone is back in their everyday lives. What are their stories and what is behind the scenes of para hockey? We will talk with the coach of the national team Jiří Bříza and the players. At the end, there might be a musical surprise.


I ♥ Leonardo Da Vinci – Modern Day Renaissance Women and Men

The great artist and polymath Leonardo da Vinci continues to fascinate us even 500 years after his death. His name and work has become a symbol of innovation and progress. His ability to stand at the crossroads of humanities and natural sciences, symbolized by the famous drawing of Vitruvian Man, made him a genius of creativity.

In his time, complex thinking was common. The following centuries dug a deep gap between the humanities and the natural sciences. Specification of disciplines has led to progress. However, it is clear that further development and the future of innovation depend more than ever on a return to multidisciplinary thinking and synthesis of knowledge. This seems to be the only way to discover something new: open up to the multitude of the world where everything is connected. Just as Leonardo da Vinci understood it.

Mark Gungor (USA)  

9 BeAttitudes of Marriage

When Jesus sat down for his amazing Sermon on the Mount, he began by sharing nine simple truths: Blessed are the poor in spirit, blessed are those that mourn, blessed are the meek, etc… We call them the “beatitudes”. In this session, Mark Gungor shares his “NINE BE-ATTITUDES” for a successful marriage. Nine ways for you to “be” in order for you to experience the kind of marriage God intends for you to have. This lecture is based on Mark‘s book Be-Attitudes of Marriage: 9 Simple Steps to a Healthier and Happier Marriage.
