“Happiness and success are measured by your inner peace” – Mike Ditka
We had a great chance to take part in “Find your inner peace” youth exchange program thanks to
the “Future in Your Hands” NGO. The program took place in Bakuriani, Georgia from 13-22 September.
We gathered together with 35 young people from Armenia, Georgia, Russia, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ukraine. Our goal was to discover the world of yoga and meditation, to enhance our self-awareness and self-development. Taking a look back, we are very grateful for all the new insights we have revealed on the path of finding our inner peace.
We did a number of activities recalling all the positive thoughts from within. We experienced contact improvement exercises, made mandalas, did body painting, breathing exercises and physical activities. We also expressed our feelings and opinions sharing very emotional moments together.
During our evenings, each team presented their country and culture. We tasted delicious national food, listened to folk music and danced. It was an amazing opportunity to get so much knowledge about different countries from the locals.
Fun was an inseparable part of our project. We hiked on the surrounding mountains, went to Borjomi to enjoy the incredible nature. We played a lot of games, danced and partied. Spending evenings together around a bonfire with guitar music was a warm and lovely memory.
We are glad to make so many good friends and connections. The program was really emotional, blissful and memorable.
