Bülbül yuvası (Turkish: bülbülyuvası, „nightingale’s nest“, is a Turkish phyllo dough dessert. It takes its name from its hollow and circular shape. Having been baked, warm syrup is sprinkled, and the hollow center is filled with pistachios before being served.


Our Intercultural Network For The Highly Gifted is celebrating its fourth anniversary


Our Intercultural Network For The Highly Gifted is celebrating its 4th anniversary in May 2019.

We, the team Çiğdem Gül, Dr. phil. Sathya Alessandra Bernhard and Metin Türk, as network architects, look forward to looking back on an exciting and successful year. Thus we not only created a platform for virtual and real acquaintance and exchange for all of us, but also broadened our range of topics, interesting multilingual dialogues, gained further cooperation partners and dealt in particular with the developing countries in Latin America and Asia. See also our multilingual interviews with well-known and successful – also indigenous – women in Argentina, Pakistan, Colombia and Turkey. In addition, we met the Mongolian nomad and today’s businessman Mr. Munkhbold Bold, who gives us information about Mongolia, shamanism and the gifted and highly gifted there.

Our Intercultural Network For The Highly Gifted took part in the German-Colombian Peace Congress in Bogotá / Colombia in the period from 18.09.2018 – 19.09.2018. Amongst other things, our team member, who worked in Colombia, led conversations with two speakers.

In Panama, our team member had a conversation with the warm-hearted elderly native Mrs. Mathilda, whom we got to know better.

We especially appreciated the cooperation with the team of Prof. Dr. Paul Ekman in the USA, so we would like to thank you, Prof. Paul Ekman. In 2009, Dr. Ekman was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine. In 2014, Dr. Ekman ranked fifteenth among the most influential psychologists of the 21st century.

In Europe, our UK-based member Kirsty Major has impressively told us in an interview that blindness is not an obstacle to having visions and making the most of one’s life. In addition, it has opened the eyes of those of us with biological site to what giftedness and Brexit means to locals in the UK. Kirsty Major showed us in the background how we can encode our pictures via HTML with descriptions so that even blind people can read them and thus „see“ them. Our big Merci applies to Kirsty Major and all other interview partners.

Special thanks go to the specialist in psychiatry and psychoanalysis in Germany, who supports us in the background with our important medical contributions (in the context of giftedness) with his answers, suggestions and corrections. We respect that he would like to remain anonymous.

The highlight was that we presented our Intercultural Network For The Highly Gifted at Europe’s leading trade fair for women „women & work“ in Frankfurt / Germany on May 4, 2019 at our first booth … and got to know you there personally.


Goosebumps – joy – gratitude,

to experience and to feel you.
