Firstly, I love Spain & spent some time in southern part. Have dozens of friends who have recently been to Barcelona where I hope to visit some day.
I too am an agnostic but am learning that there is a force which I cannot explain. Maybe it is that god lies within each of us. I also have struggled with quieting my mind & tried meditation which I have a hard time with. I find that spinning classses with a good instructor is the ideal way to have a zen like experience.

What a great day this is!! This website is definitely working as powerful spark in my life today! I am Margarida, a 33 year old Portuguese, living in Barcelona, Spain. This year I've been dieting on and off, every single month, only to get myself 5 more kgs. At least I know why...I'm an emotional eater. I have probably read only too much about overcoming it, about controling my thoughts, but I've realized my problem lies in turning thoughts into action. I can go from increadibly lazy to extremely active depending on my emotions. I need to learn how to control my mind and my thoughts, and for that I do know meditation could really help me a big deal. I am trying to introduce some meditation ritual into my life, but I don't find anything appealing enough for me. Maybe, because I am a fully convicted agnostic, with no intention to give up on her (dis)beliefs. Is anyone out there who has recently engaged in meditation without having any religious beliefs?
Thank you for this surge of hope you make me feel, just for being here!:)
Wishing you all the best from sunny Barcelona! Margarida
