Personal Stories & Insights From Avatar Students
Here is a small fraction of the more than 500,000 letters
and insights we are receiving from our students.
I was a prisoner of war in Indonesia and my guards were Japanese and Korean soldiers and officers. I saw and experienced a lot of terrible things. After the war I blocked my memory to make it possible to start a new life. During The Professional Course, in Willingen, my first exercise with a fellow student was with a Japanese man. Then I had to work with a Korean man and for the group demo I chose to work with the Korean group. I used the Rat List to overcome my feelings about Japanese and Korean people, and by the end of the course I had a Japanese friend, a Korean friend, two from Taiwan and two from China. The course was very clearing.
Now, at Wizards, I have used the exercises to recover my blocked memory. I can look back in a serene way and find the answers to who I was. Again I sit near Korean students, and if you were to put a soldier's hat on one of the students you would have one of my former guards. Yet I can look into that face with peace in my heart.
I've hugged a lot of oriental friends that I've gotten to know over the Avatar courses. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clear my past.
