After two weeks of an informative and life changing experience, these peace agents had the chance to share their stories with the world.
“What do you think of the online self development program?”
Ping Wang (USA): “The Self Development Program made me more disciplined in my habits. After constant self reflections, I learnt to be more mindful and aware during my daily activity, and interaction with people in the retreat”
“Why did you join The Peace Revolution project and how did you hear about it?”
Lina (Lithuania): “I had some difficulties in my life, which was a bit chaotic and I lacked a sense of inner balance…my friend, a peace agent from Hungary recommended this program for me.”
“What did you learn from the international fellowship?”
Frankline Nandembega (Burkina Faso) “I wish I could have like two days to talk about it, there are so many things. The first thing is forgiveness. I have learnt to forgive before someone forgives me, which comes from a sense of letting go I have developed here. And the fact of being patient with myself first and then with the others. So many things; cleanliness, mindfulness and seeing goodness in people (something I appreciate very much)…”
“What topics interested you most?”
Patrick (USA): “I appreciate so much the topics on how to deal with stress and negativity. Where I come from, many people I care about are negative and I don’t want to see them suffer. It will be great to share these teachings with them through practice back home”
“Please share your best meditation experience”
Aline (Rwanda): “Last night i wasn’t controlling my wandering thoughts. I was observing my breathing, it was really good, I felt empty and happy…”
“Do you see the connection between meditation and world peace?”
Olena (Ukraine): “Yes (smiles)… if I am happy I am not going to argue with my husband when we get into a conflict. When he is not annoyed by his wife, he wont have problems at work. Everything starts from every one of us…”
“If people say they don’t have time to meditate, what will your response be?”
Juliana (Portugal): “How come? Meditation is part of our daily life, and we can learn to be mindful in everything we do which makes it easier…”
