Finding Spirituality

Photo taken by contributor FromDarknesstoLight, a man from Germany who experienced a drug-related psychosis in December 2011, and has been taking medication since. He continued to regularly abuse drugs until last year when the drugs, combined with his medication and psychosis, led doctors in Germany to diagnose him with schizophrenia. He had to stop his studies at university and lost his part-time job as a tennis coach. Shortly thereafter, he decided that he had to change his lifestyle. He looked for alternative ways of healing, and ended up going to India where he did an ayurvedic treatment for 7 weeks. He discovered so many inspiring things that he extended his stay in India so he can continue learning and healing.

About this photo: This picture brings peace to me. It reminds me of my days at Amritapuri. There I found my connection to God and spirituality. It was taken at Amma’s Ashram on the beach.”
