Speaking about the days spent in wonderful resort of Dilijan, I can say, that I have just enjoyed it. First of all I was interested in the idea of “Women in black” movement: To live in peaceful coutry, create a society, where there won’t be violence and people will live only with humanitarian, democratic principles, law and power won’t abused.
On the first day of discussion was devoted to introducing the members of group to each other, which was realized by a very interesting way strengthening the team building skills of the group and gave a chance to discover the strength and weaknesses of members, their nature, but also we got many charming smiles. We started the next day with morning yoga. I can say, that I was doing yoga for the first time, it was very interesting for me. I thought, that I can’t do that, but my friends told me that I have done it pretty well. Among yoga poses I liked very much the pose of dancer, because for a moment I returned to my childhood and remembered how I dream to become a ballet dancer. Then in the end we reflected our feelings after yoga by drawing on a paper. I draw a ship in the sea in the reflection of moon, which was symbolizing peace.
After that we began to deeply discuss our knowledge about feminism, gender equality that we have gained at the beginning of the training before. During the discussion I got more deep knowledge about feminism, gender equality. And finally in the end of that day I discovered a feminist in my soul by watching movie. The movie gave a chance to understand, that in any case a human creature must not refuse from his identity, mission, he must choose the way of struggle even at the price of death. The more interesting was team works with balloon that symbolized integrity of group.
Out of training topics, I got great pleasure from the midnight conversations with my friends, crazy times, when at 2:00 a.m. we suddenly want to eat and start to attack the refrigerator. The last day of meeting, when we were packing our things, I was sad, that I would not see some of my friends, but at the same time I was hoping that the days will come back again.
Love You All
