Throughout my life I have had some remarkable influences, similar to those which are found in the Self-Responsibility Workshops, but I never experienced them in such a condensed way, and with such a practical and grounded approach as they are presented in Alberto’s Self-Responsibility workshops.  My parents are both western medicine physicians, whom in my early childhood started to discover and study holistic approaches to health. From the age of four I grew up with my three siblings on a macrobiotic lifestyle and diet. The principles of Yin&Yang, Chi-Energy and proper whole-food nutrition (after Adalbert Nelison and Dr. Brucker) were thus incorporated naturally into my life. Thanks to my mother’s love for dance, I also received dance training (classical ballet, modern dance, step, hip hop) since childhood years, thus acquiring knowledge about the importance of proper body alignment very soon. Following my love for the arts, I studied Theatre-Film and Media studies at Vienna University. After that I traveled half a year through southeast Asia, where my connection to holistic living got refreshed a new found access to spiritual formed. In the Thabarwa Meditation Center in Myanmar I immersed myself into the practice and study of Vipassana Meditation and Theravada Buddhism for almost two months. My meditation instructors were the 70-year old U Kiaw San and the younger 40-year old monk and founder of the Center, U Ottamassara, whom both dedicated time to teach me every single day - not only through words, but even more through their actions. Through the experiences I made, my perception of “right & wrong, “the self, “the ego “, time, mind, body and the senses has dramatically changed; my priorities in life shifted. Upon my return to Austria I continued my studies, with a more practical bachelor’s degree in media-science engineering. Simultaneously, I was exploring diverse ways to continue and deepen my spiritual practices through Meditation, Yoga, reading circles, diverse spiritually oriented courses, workshops and retreats. It became very important to me, to find quality instructors or teachers. I became very keen and selective on finding ways to deepen and share my knowledge and started to consider a Yoga Teacher’s training. But, after researching more on that topic, I realized that the commercialization of Yoga has become a big business and that after only 200 to 500 hour programs anybody can already become a certified yoga teacher. This idea didn’t resonate with me; especially since I had teachers, that had dedicated decades of practice before teaching others. After meeting Alberto, I became a dedicated supporter and assistant of the project since 2015. He gained my trust by the simple and yet very practical way of teaching, and witnessing the very consistent effects of the group workshops. Now, I dedicate my knowledge in media to help promote and disseminate the Self-Responsibility Project’s intent and to make it more visible and accessible to a greater audience.
