Moved by my young contemporaries I write to echo practices I tried with them - or which were created conjointly.

I am writing to testify, to dialogue, to stimulate. I write for the love of people and words : to speak justly is such a challenge!

I write to offer a fresh perspective and dignified practices.

Souviens-toi de ta noblesse

In French

"When young people are violent, it means that they come stripping our hospices

and the coats that suffocate us.”

It is with these words that Marie Milis, professor of mathematics and ethics in Brussels, presented her unique pedagogical gesture “Remember your nobility” to the Grand Souffle editor.

An educational countdown, an innovative method practiced with struggling pupils, based on self-praise and praise of others.

Preface and afterword by Christiane Singer

Exercices pratiques d'autolouanges

In French

"To find the spirit of childhood, to discover the pleasure of writing,

bear witness of an inner beauty. "

Self-praise is a universal millenary practice, still alive in Africa today. It helps to put into words what comes from the soul.

It boosts self-esteem and reconnect each to his talent and to others. It is written in "I" with emphasis and poetry, a text that speaks for itself and proclaims it, honoring a personal epic.


Everything is authentic and without arrogance.

Je donne des couleurs au monde

In French

A collection of 60 self-praises by Marie Milis, gathered by Leonardo Call as a birthday present.

Foreword Henry Bauchau.

In French

Three women narrate their pilgrimage to Tibet around Mount Kailash, the abode of the gods to the great religions of Asia.

The polyphony of writing has no other purpose than to propose several gateways to this inner journey, many paths, and several areas of "implementation".

In short, this book is an invitation to an internal journey, a pilgrimage in itself.

Emue par les jeunes contemporains j’écris pour donner écho à des pratiques expérimentées, voire créées,  avec eux. 

J’écris pour témoigner, pour dialoguer, pour stimuler. J’écris par amour des êtres et des mots: dire juste est un tel défi!
