we are sending greetings from Luxembourg, where we have experienced an amazing projekt “From awareness to action” in a magical castle located in a small town called Erpeldange. The project lasted from 6 to 14 September and we had the opportunity to meet participants from countries such as Romania, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Malta, Turkey, Croatia, the Netherlands and even Bulgaria.
The whole project was wonderfully led by Rick and Deniz and together with a professional psychologist they prepared such an amazing week full of educational fun activities and workshops in the spirit of emotional intelligence. We focused on topics such as how to properly deal with stress or how to actually actively listen to others, in addition, we also tried different types of yoga and meditation led by an amazing yoga instructor.
Moreover we discovered the beauties of Luxembourg, we visited several castles and other monuments. We even lived in a castle during the project, and enjoyed the beautiful nature. Finally, I have to emphasize how much we enjoyed the multinational environment. Where else? Can you chat by the fire in the evening with 10 different nationalities at once?
When I sit back and write this article, I smile as if I was still there. It was really a beautifully organized project in a wonderful country that you probably haven’t been to yet. You learned a lot about emotional intelligence in a fun but very professional way. To put it briefly, living in beautiful nature with friends from all over the world and participating in amazing workshops is simply worth it!
So if you’re still thinking about whether to send an application to EYCB, go for it and explore the possibilities that this program brings!
