We all have heard about violence and shocking stories depicting acts of violence, where one wonders how one human can be that cruel with another human or other living beings. How often however have you reflected on how violent or non- violent you are in your daily life, including with your self? In this post I will share my thoughts on violence and how non- violence can be manifested in daily life and how it can be incorporated into daily activities, leading to be softer with your self and others, expressing more love in all sorts of areas of life. In this article I focus on non- violence towards the self. What I am writing is a result of different fields and schools of thoughts I have learned from and my own reflection.
After two and a half weeks in the US I am back in Germany for a few days before we will fly back to Tel Aviv, after three months abroad. My trip to the US has been inspiring on so many levels. I got to spend time in big cities and in the nature. The most important part and reason for the trip though was Boston, where I started the certification program to become an instructor for trauma sensitive yoga. Last week marked the beginning of the seven-month program, which left me feeling so excited for all the learning to come.
