Forum for Communication and Exchange 

      for Women in and around Freiburg, Germany



Welcome to the Network of English-Speaking Women!

The Network was founded in 1993 with the goal of providing a forum for communication and exchange between English-speaking women in and around Freiburg, Germany. By putting women in contact with one another and encouraging the exchange of information and experience – both personal and professional – the Network offers fun and informative evenings in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. 

Our next meeting is Friday June 28th, 7:30 pm

India - "the one land that all men desire to see"
Karma, Dharma, Yoga … we’ve all come across these terms, but many of us have only a vague or limited idea of what they really mean. These concepts may seem exotic with no direct bearing on our lives. Nevertheless, they are part of the cultural heritage of one in five people on the planet: the inhabitants of India, not counting expatriate Indians. Non-Indians are also influenced by this cultural heritage of which many of us know so little. Mark Twain once described India as ‘‘the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.’’
Network member Sabina Sahni is of Indian origin and has traveled to India numerous times. Her personal observations and interactions led to a desire to gain more in-depth understanding of India’s culture and traditions. This evening she will share with us some of her insights into aspects of the Indian cultural legacy which affect us all, not just those of us lucky enough to get a glimpse of it first-hand.
