  • Advent Creative Workshops
    1. December 2022

    The smell of Christmas atmosphere was felt when entering the Social Services Center of Prof. Karol Matulay (a center for autistic and mentally handicapped children and adults), where supporters, volunteers, and people from the surrounding area spent hours in a creative atmosphere making various Christmas decorations and ikebana, baking gingerbread, painting on textiles and glass. The sound of Christmas carols added to the Christmas spirit with the aroma of pine needles, gingerbread, excellent punch and classic bread with lard and onion. We are happy that the HDE team could also be a part of supporting this meaningful activity that makes this world a warmer and better place.

    'The power of love is greater than we can even imagine.' PROF. KAROL MATULAY

  • Thanksgiving 2022
    24. November 2022

    On the last Thursday of every November, people in the US celebrate Thanksgiving, a special day that places gratitude at the center of attention. It is meaningful for me because many years ago on this day, my family and I landed in the US during our escape from communism. Every year, we had much to be thankful for and to this day, it is a special time for me when I remember my own journey into adulthood, freedom, challenges, openness, opportunities, hard work and positive outcomes.

    During the special time of Thanksgiving, people take stock of their lives and reflect upon what they are grateful for. I wish we took more time to count the blessings in our lives and express more thankfulness to each other. I am grateful for peace to walk the streets without sirens, for my husband and my daughter who make me a better person and are my happy place, for my home that gives me safety and refuge, for my team at Human Dynamic Europe that makes me a better leader today than I was yesterday, for my work that gives me a meaningful purpose and challenges me, for my extended family that loves and supports me in my endeavors, for my clients and companies who believe that together can make the world a better place with one person at a time, and for all my friends and acquaintances who enrich me. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to love, live and learn in such a wonderful community of people and to be able to do important work on a daily basis.

    My hope for you at this Thanksgiving (and Christmas) is that you are surrounded by the people that you love and that you find gratitude at the center of all your celebrations.

    With gratitude and thankfulness,

    Miriam
