For me personally, the training was an opportunity to explore a different side of myself that is not so serious and has a lighter and more playful quality to it. I feel that as human beings we have a choice of what facets of ourselves we nurture and foster and which ones we decide not to invest energy in.
Being German, the older sister and generally from a family that promotes ethics of working hard and being busy all the time, I have neglected the aspects inside of me that are more creative, care-free and playful. The training has given me the opportunity to explore the side of myself that actively takes part in life and enjoys it rather than just endures it. Even though the hours were grueling, I managed to find lightness, delight and joy!
