The courses range from going deep in inner individual issues to world economic and systemic ones. The premise is that it is key to understand one’s self first in order to accept others and therefore to live in a global society. Facilitators are excellent in their field of knowledge and the modules are so interesting and deep that it makes it hard for participants to choose which ones to join. One might as well just do the whole program or most of it, like I did. The staff responsible for the program are not only well prepared but also add a lot to the learning process with their own backgrounds. There is a big difference when the organizers are fully engaged and truly believe in what they do, as can be seen in the ALT.
As for myself, the five months that I joined the program has also been a breather in life, a moment to stop and rethink life and paths taken. I feel sometimes it is necessary to let go, leave home and go away in order to see our lives from another perspective. In this program I found a safe place for sharing, being myself and finding commonalities among people from different places and life stories. In the end, I could say I left home and I found a home elsewhere, in which I made friends I’ll carry on for years to come. For all of this, I’m very grateful for the ALT experience.
