A Reflection on TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders" - John Bunzl
"“Crossing borders”, internationally, politically, or within ourselves, was a great inspiration. When we cross borders we let go; we let go of our preconceptions, our fears, our egos – we become one; one with ourselves, with each other, and with the cosmos. That’s what many of the speakers’ heartfelt experiences made me feel!" - John Bunzl

"TEDxBerlin "Crossing Borders" exceeded my wildest expectations about thinking of what borders might mean! Starting with technological, musical and performance borders to humanity's borders and those presented to us by life - I had a wonderful and rewarding time speaking with the TEDxBerlin speakers and the brilliant team behind this event." - Anwar Dafa-Alla
A Reflection on TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders" - Alonso Dominguez
"TEDx is a needed platform - not only for those of us who follow it closely and come to be inspired, but as a speaker as well. It's important to have a launching point for ideas and being able to test works in progress in front of a discerning audience. The format is optimal for the experimentation and being able to be next to so many incredible people, is priceless in the development of all these ideas we are all independently working on. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity and I can't wait to watch the next one!" - Alonso Dominguez

"For me TEDxBerlin's event "Crossing Borders" was like traveling India for the first time. A huge challenge with a high level of self-awareness.
And when you exit the stage after an intense journey of planning, writing, re-writing, practicing and finally presenting it, you are coming home as a changed person." – Fabian Sixtus Körner

A Reflection on TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders" - Alexander Görlach
"Speaking at a TEDx conference is a great honor since you become a part of a global network of smart minds that are about to shape the future of us all."
"What we say is deeply rooted in our human heritage. What seems unchangeable truly isn't. It has simply just been around for so long. Therefore, understanding what shapes our consciousness will change our language and therefore our actions."
"The humanities will enlighten the future, forget about economics." - Alexander Görlach
A Reflection on TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders" - Carlina Gonzalez-Bunster
"I was blown away by the diversity of speakers at "Crossing Boarders" TEDxBerlin and their inspiring stories about crossing geographical, mental, spiritual, professional, and political boarders. The stories made me reflect on all the various boarders I have crossed throughout my life and made me realized that life's journey is a perpetual series of crossing boarders, one after the other. After attending and speaking at "Crossing Boarders," I was moved to continue to challenge myself and make a difference in the world." - Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster

A Reflection on TEDxBerlin 2012 "Crossing Borders" - Jon "Maddog" Hall
"It was my great honor to be asked to talk at the TedxBerlin "Crossing Borders" talks. It was inspiring to hear how others 'crossed borders' in their lives. I hope that some of their messages help to inspire others to take that first step, or perhaps to lower the borders for others to cross." - Jon "Maddog" Hall
