In order to support and further develop the efforts of solving the
problems with addiction, in 1999 the University of Zagreb organised
a symposium titled Youth and Drugs. On this symposium eminent scientists
were invited to present their methods of dealing with the problem
of addiction. Having noticed that the young people who had problems
with addiction and are visiting Komaja's spiritual schooling, through
this schooling succeeded in solving their problem, the University
of Zagreb also invited representatives of Komaja to participate
on this symposium. It was the first time that the Love-Erotic Therapy
was presented in public.
On this symposium it's immediate success was
predicted. Both works from the representatives of Komaja were published
in the scientifical magazine Anali along with other 21 best works
presented on this symposium.
In the next year 2000, the Komaja Society for
the Art of Living from Macedonia organised a public lecture on the
University St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje titled as Love-Erotic
(non-)Education and Drug Addiction presenting the Love-Erotic Therapy
in the University's circles. Among other prominent personalities
who in their work are closely connected with dealing with the problem
of the addiction, the deputy minister of the Ministry for Youth
and Sports was also invited. Fascinated by the Love-Erotic Therapy
as a successful, attractive and innovative way to solve the problem
with addiction, he offered moral and financial support for it's
conduction. The co-operation was created and the support followed
in the year 2001. In this time the Ministry for Youth and Sports
was transformed into a Agency for Youth and Sports of the Government
of the R. of Macedonia.
Soon afterwards, in may 2001 the Institute
for Sustainable Communities in Macedonia (a non-governmental organisation
with it's origins in Montpelier, Vermont, U.S.A offered financial
support for the Love-Erotic Therapy. This organisation is financed
by the American governmental organisation USAID (United States Agency
for International Development). In their grant programs the Love-Erotic
Therapy was among the 25 projects chosen for financial support out
of 265 that applied.
In the same year the City of Zagreb, the capitol
of Croatia, started supporting the Love-Erotic Therapy.
In June 2001 in Paris, France, the Love-Erotic
Therapy was presented by it's author Aba Aziz Makaja on the highest
international level: on the 15th World Congress for Sexology where
it was accepted with great success. The summary of the presentation
was published in the Abstract Book
of the 15th World Congress
The Love-Erotic Therapy continues internationally
to receive support for it's conduction.
