I have been to quite a few of Erasmus+ projects and I can say this one was very special. I will share one useful learning for everyday life and also give you one promise. If you go to a project having “basic synergy training” written somewhere in the description, it will not be just “a project”. You may love it, you may hate it but you will remember it for the rest of your life.
Erasmus Projects? Firstly, it’s about people.
Emotional moments, inspiring people, local food and wild nature – this was Resilient training for me. During nine days full of physical exercises, theatre lessons, meditation sessions and challenging activities, I got the opportunity to slow down, open my comfort zone and take a step forward.
My experience is indescribable by words. It was an opportunity to find a way how to get closer to myself and look at myself, and how to find the beginning of the way to my body. My personal questions were: ”Who am I?” “What do I want?”, “What do I feel”, “Where does it manifest itself in my body?”
Italy. The country full of beautiful architecture, powerful art history, full of smell of pasta on every corner and loud laughter. A country full of life with a heart in the palm of hand. My Italian experience completely changed me. It helped me turn into a better person. It changed my view of people, of the world but especially of myself. I have learned seize my own identity. Every day it taught me to be more fearless, a more kind and selfless person. I spent half of a year in Bologna, in Italy. Here I worked with mentally disabled people in one of the center of Saint Clare.
