Sonja Graf Story
Sonja’s inner motivation is that beyond working with people, it is extremely important that the result of her work contributes towards making society a better place, even if modestly.
From early childhood, Sonja was always interested in finding the answer to the question why. Why does everything around us exist, why we are here and what is the point of being here on Earth? This inquisitive inner voice, always seeking for answers to questions, big or small, and for helping her understand better the meaning of life. This aspect of her character has continued to define Sonja throughout her studies, professional and personal endeavours.
From that moment on, Sonja realized that her inner motivation is that beyond working with people, it is extremely important that the result of her work contributes towards making society a better place, even if modestly.
Having been an Aikido and meditation teacher for over a decade, she finally decided to dedicate all her energy towards developing these activities.
Aikido, although a martial art, seeks to establish harmony with all that surrounds us; people, world, us. Its philosophy is that helping others is needed for one’s own self-development. Every child that starts Aikido with Sonja learns not only to defend her/himself, but also empathy, respect and non-judgement. He/she learns how to transform the world into a better place. And each minute of the training is dedicated to this mission!
If she can summarise in one sentence what drives her, it is: Leave this planet a better place than how you found it.
