Thabang a 17 year old, shares how YES! Course changed his life. He was a student at Forte High School in Dobsonville, Soweto, Johannesburg and part of the Youth Village program run by the International Association of Human Values in South Africa, a sister organisation of The Art of Living Foundation.
Thabang, 17 years old, shares how YES! Course changed his life. From dealing with his mother passing away from HIV/AIDS to becoming a road safety ambassador. As I continued with the YES! Course I became interested to love helping others who are less fortunate and to make a positive change in my community, I had a passion to help. I am on a mission to motivate other young people who are from same background as mine and help them make choices which will lead them to a positive path.
Estou mais em paz, mais paciente, mais a vontade e mais atento. No agora.
The Youth Empowerment Seminar has helped me immensely. I have been dependent on drugs for a while. I never thought I had the stamina to live without them. Amazingly, I am more calm and happy now. I have discovered a new energy in myself.
“Every moment doing the advance course was new experience for me, the meditation and most of all the silence, which enjoyed the most.”
The advanced course, I cannot put in words the sort of experience it was for me. I have always imagined the nature of meditation and the feeling one has when you do this but this was mind blowing. It was an absolutely wonderful experience.
