IMG_8661.JPG
 Revolution of Heart! Our theme for our recent 5 day Divine Principle intended to ignite the hearts of guests with new inspiration and passion with the power of Principle. Our lecturer, William Haines, explained the Divine Principle in a unique and relatable way that dramatically changed the way participants thought of the Bible. Throughout the workshop, those attending participated in fun, team building activities as well as a testimony night on the last day in order to share their personal defining moments of workshop and how they can apply what they learned to their daily lives. After attending the workshop, many were interested in coming to the upcoming event in Vienna titled, “Peace Starts with Me.”

 Asad Ali:   Coming to this 5-day workshop was a really special experience, from the lectures to the activities it was always something different coming our way. Meeting Uncle William and listening to his lectures made me analyze things from a completely new perspective, especially in ways I never even thought it was possible to be analyzed. This whole time span was a great lesson in life in which we were learning new things, making new friends and most importantly co-existing peacefully despite having different backgrounds. There were many special moments during the workshop, in fact every moment I spent there was so special for me and if I started listing the experiences this would probably never end but I would like to narrate a thing I felt which was so special that it would be a crime to not mention it ….. and here it is –   It was the last day of the workshop, we were having lunch and it was time to pack up things after it.       As everyone was gathered around the tables eating together, I was just observing from the sidelines seeing that around the tables we had Czechs, Indians, Americans, Vietnamese, Japanese, Koreans, Austrians and may be even more nationalities present there but all of them regardless of their nationalities, faiths, beliefs or any other forms of considerations were just sitting there happily enjoying the food and each other’s presence and it made me realize in that moment we achieved world peace in that room as each of us had our world confined to that room and even in our own personal worlds I could see a moment of true peace and seeing this made me strongly believe if it’s doable in that room then one day this room would be the entire planet and we would achieve the goal of peaceful co-existence.  I came in with zero expectations and I am going away with so much that words cannot define it and all I can say is a BIG THANK YOU/DEKUJU/KAMSAHAMNIDA/ARIGATO for everything, it was a wonderful experience and I am already looking forward to seeing you guys again!

 Suyash Kashyap:  Hi, I am Suyash Kashyap from New Delhi, India. I am 19 years old and I am studying bachelors in mechanical engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague. I came in contact with YSP-CZ around one month ago when I was invited to one of their Peace Talks which was a really good experience for me. After going to four of their Peace Talks, I was invited for the 5 day seminar ‘Revolution of Heart’ at their headquarters in Žerotínova. Although I couldn’t attend the 1st day of the seminar due to my classes I came to the headquarters in the evening and stayed there only for next 4 days. The next day we started with reading the autobiography of the founder Reverend Moon which was really inspiring and motivating for me. And then the breakfast with all other people on a single table was really a good opportunity o connect with each other. And then the first lecture about the Three Great Blessings and Adam & Eve was given by Uncle William from England. After a short break we started again with the lecture about the role of stories in our life. And then for the next 3 days we all were told stories from Bible by Uncle William with his own modern touch. The stories were mostly from Bible like Adam, Eve & Lucifer, Abraham & Sarai, Noah and his family, Jacob and his family, Joseph and his brothers and some more. I knew some of the stories but I didn’t know the complete stories about them. We got to know about the mistakes the characters in these stories made and how those mistakes affected their life and how with each new story the characters were becoming better. These stories were kinda eye-opening to me as I could relate my own life to some of the stories, so, now I am going to see these stories with a new perspective and that will help me become a better person. But the best thing about the seminar was meeting new people from around the world and most of them became so close friends now. I will better say that most of them have become my siblings now! And all the discussions I had with these amazing people really inspired me a lot. And having meals with all of them on a single table every time irrespective of our nationalities and beliefs showed that we had achieved world peace in that single room! And all the fun activities we did were so amazing like playing a football match, playing card games, singing songs together and the team challenge on the 4th day. Especially the team challenge was the best activity for me as we all worked together as a team and completed different challenges most of which were doing some activities with random strangers! Then on the last day we got to know about the inspiring life of Reverend Moon and how he overcame all hardships and became a great source of inspiration for the whole world! I received a hard copy of his autobiography which will surely inspire me further in my life. And on the last day I also got to have Korean food the first time in my life! But when everyone was leaving there was a big emotional moment as we were all living together in the same building for last 5 days! To conclude I will say that this 5 day seminar was a life-changing unforgettable experience for me! And I am looking forward to more upcoming events in future! And in the end I will like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone in the seminar for making the whole experience so amazing!
