Amandine Roche Healing The World Through Yoga and Meditation Peace Practices
Every time I contemplate
on a human soul's energy
Can the power within just one
change the world?
Time and again I learn about
the journey of an individual
How did they reach so far
within their short life span?
When another organization is
created many come together to
build a better structure
I ask myself, "Do I have the
capacity to design something effective?
Looking across at the peace-makers
and non-violent souls I breath in
And, question whether the terrorism
can possibly end?
When I hear about meditators searching
quietly who are actively
I want to know how many people
it will take to tip the scales?
Then I take my turn and give a
little love, a kind word and a
And I want to know how many
I can help in this world?

Your thoughts . . .
Is it possible to change the world through meditation and yoga?
One Person At A Time
Thank you Dr Wequar
I learned about a philosophical disciple of Gandhi and the Dalai Lama through a friend from Pakistan. Every day he practices yoga and lets others know about recent innovations and strides in medicine. The other day he posted one of his current events notices dealing with the Middle East and Peace.
Most News Reports Are Not Encouraging
We hear about this hot topic on the news daily, the political maneuverings, the war efforts, the fighting and the soldiers on all sides. A lot of the day-to-day challenges for the president and the department of defense does not reach our ears, just as we don't see the body bags in recent wars, so as not to upset the country. If we did see the horrors and numbers of maimed, depressed, suicidal and unemployed veterans we may raise a flag and protest.
However, when my friend informed me that one woman was making strides and in-roads towards peace with her non-violent methods, touching people's lives, teaching soldiers, generals, political leaders and politicians, connecting humanitarian organizations and creating her own foundation, I received a spark of hope.
Changing the World Through Education
When we teach our children, teens and young adults that they can stop the frenzied pace of life, breath within, listen to the soul's desires, improve relationships and learn methods to unwind, lessen reliance upon pain relieving drugs, reduce stress and create a more harmonious life, I wonder why we don't implement this as a daily routine?
One Young Woman On A Mission
So, I'd like to introduce you to a French pioneer humanitarian, peace-maker and founder of the Amanuddin Foundation by the name of Amandine Roche. I admire her dedication to improving the lives of the people in Afghanistan, how they perceive the world and their relationship with other countries.
Her Technique To Change The World
Through the use of meditation and yoga she feels the world can look like a different place. I encourage you to learn more about her.
Amandine has experience as a traveling world reporter, a recognized galleried photographer, and author of four books, plus three documentary films. Amandine learned photography in Himalaya with the World Press photographer Olivier Föllmi. Her work has been published in Paris Match, National Geographic, Terre Sauvage, Le Point, Le Monde, Femme, SIPA Press, and UN-EU.
AFP | "Real peace starts within, like the war starts within. We need to raise the level of consciousness, it's as simple as that," Amandine says from her home in Kabul.
The Sola Yoga Project in Afghanistan
The Sola Yoga Project
The Sola Yoga Project is an initiative with the purpose of bringing yoga and meditation to Afghanistan and its surrounding region. By using these ancient methods of peace and wellbeing, Afghanistan's population will be able to create a sustainable model of non-violence for future generations.
If they can implant concepts of non-violence, non-retribution, compassion, freedom for women and non-domination, then I feel this will be a step towards peace.
Do you have a meditative practice or exercise program?
Do you have some form of going within and getting in touch with the physical and the spirit?
Yoga Makes You A Better Version Of Yourself - OM
The Story of Dani Abisaab | A New York architect working in a fast-paced world becomes sick. She searches for a solution and finds yoga. After 3 weeks, she recovers and the continued practice helps her cope, while living in a world of stress and chaos. What happens when a person has a passion? She began talking about her love of yoga and obviously everyone could see the change in her.
She ended up moving to Beirut and got in touch with her calling to teach yoga. She says that the consciousness shifts from "I" to "you" and as an architect, she found this helped to "deconstruct" her world. To rebuilt and eliminate false teachings.
