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.
Resilient training took place at the best time of autumn when the nature shows most colorful scenarios. The village called Ravnogor in Bulgarian mountains was intersting to discover, especially walks around which provided unique views.
The training was focused on cultivating the ability to deal with change and uncertainty. This topic has been more than valid in recent two years in everyday life so the excercises we had the opprotunity to go through stregthened my confidence that I would be able to deal with incoming chanllenges with smile on my face. Understanding how to realize my emotions and needs when in stressful situation was also growing moment for me.
The program was as well balanced with physical excercises, with dancing, laughing and emotions.
I believe I also found some friends whose I would like to see again. The diversity provided by participants from different countries has widen my perspective and enriched me with specific culture details which is hard to gain any other way.
And the food was delicious!
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. It was extremely important to close the real world´s door and so the new world of my inner labyrinth could be opened. Once I accepted the invitation and let the door behind my back be closed, things started to happen. I was able to meet, explore and start the process of accepting every little part of myself I saw there. While walking the path around my deepest self, there was happiness, joy, tears, pain, pleasure, and confusion, all at the same time. Trainers were there for us and were helping us on the way to becoming stronger people by just strolling through our inner city. They also reminded us how important it is to close the door by the end of the project. One of the most important thought I´m taking from the project is that closing doesn´t mean leaving forever, closing means locking the door and putting the key in your pocket so you can come back anytime you want to.
