Terror Attack, Madrid, Spain (March 2004)

Sharing the pain

The 2004 Madrid train bombings were a series of coordinated bombings against the commuter train system of Madrid on the morning of March 11, 2004, which killed 191 people and wounded over 1700.

Witnesses and victims were so traumatized, they could not even cry. Anger and vengeful tendencies were common, while in some cases depression and shock were overwhelming. Through its trauma relief workshops, The Art of Living taught stress-elimination techniques to several thousand people who were directly and indirectly affected by the terror attack.

"It helped me to share my pain. I felt very comfortable during the course and could control my nightmares." – Anonymous, Madrid
