I am a student of Universal Medicine and have been attending lectures and workshops for eight years. In my younger years I played sport at an elite level and represented Australia overseas in Judo. Never in all the time I have known Serge Benhayon has he ever told me not to exercise!
I still snow ski in Canada every year for four to six weeks, but my feeling as to how I approach skiing has changed as I am now more in touch with my body and can feel the effects when I am skiing. To ski at the top level (on one occasion with a former member of the ‘Crazy Canuks’!) down double-black runs takes a push and a drive that takes me ‘out of myself’, it disconnects me from feeling my body, and I can now say, “it hurts”. When I ski the groomed black, blue and green runs I find that I can still stay connected to my body and have a joy-full time without the drive to compete that was ‘me’ in the past. I now ski for the joy of it, whether it is powder down black runs or cruising the blues. It is all fun!!
Serge regularly asks me how my skiing is going. Never has he said not to do sport and he is always promoting walking, swimming and light exercise for everyone especially if they are not in a job that is physical.
