Reflexology and Logotherapy – Where Body meets Spirit

Posted by on Jan 28, 2016

Recently I watched an inspiring movie called UNBROKEN. Louis Zamperini was bullied by his classmates when he was growing up in California. To escape their cruelty he ran from them which became his passion. His older brother had faith in his abilities and trained Louis to be a runner. In 1936 he became a hero for his country at the Olympic Games in Berlin where he was congratulated by none other than Hitler. Later on he joined the United States Army and during WW2 his fighter plane was shot down over the Pacific Ocean where he and a few of his platoon survived 47 days floating in a raft. When all hope was lost he was rescued (and captured) by a Japanese war ship and subjected to barbaric war crimes in a Japanese P.O.W camp in Tokyo. He was...

Second Chances – Reflecting on 2015 – stepping into 2016 with meaning

Posted by on Jan 1, 2016

Find meaning… Recently I was in Eilat for a wonderful holiday. It was so special to take time out from my busy schedule and just be. Each morning I woke up at 6am to go for a walk. There was something magical about watching the sun rise over the mountains while reflecting off the water. The air was fresh and crisp. The city was still sleeping. There was no noise. Just beauty and the changing colours as sunrise arrived, and me alone with my thoughts. At this hour, where everything was still, I felt so much meaning in my life. I was reminded of one of my favourite Logotherapy (meaning centered counseling) quotes from founder Dr Victor Frankl, “For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore,...

Invictus inspiration

Logotherapy – Finding meaning – INVICTUS This week  I had a Logotherapy session with someone who is struggling to find meaning in her life. She spoke to me about something that had inspired her, the poem INVICTUS. A few years ago I had watched the movie INVICTUS but had never thought about the name of the movie or assigned any significance to it. Now I was challenged to find out more. Why the name INVICTUS and what did it mean to Nelson Mandela, and of course, what are the lessons for us? From IMDb the synopsis of the movie INVICTUS says, “The film tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team to help unite their country. Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided...

Coping with Terror

Posted by on Oct 14, 2015

This week we have seen the escalation of terror and violence throughout Israel. I have heard many people say that last year when the war was happening at least we knew when there was danger as the siren was sounded and we could go off to our shelters. Now, the violence is on the streets without warning and this is scary. If you are feeling escalated levels of stress or tension please remember that a REFLEXOLOGY treatment will help to settle your nerves and enable you to feel more calm and in control. I came across this article that I thought was very informative and practical and I wanted to share it with you. I hope it helps to bring some coping skills and a sense of peace into your life.

What Shimon Peres said at TEDx White City (Tel Aviv)

Posted by on Oct 12, 2015

About the future and realizing dreams   Today I attended the TEDx White City (Tel Aviv) event. What a great day of innovative speakers. The highlight of the day was listening to ex-President Shimon Peres being interviewed. Firstly, the man is already 92 years old and carries himself with such upright dignity like that of a 40 year old. Secondly he is still so sharp and with it. What an inspiration. Not only that, he is so advanced in his Hi-tech knowledge! It was truly a gift to hear him speak. I think that by  the age of 92, one comes to a place in ones life of absolute wisdom. This shone through as he spoke. Here are some of the ideas that he share with the audience of about 1800 people! “The past is dead, it doesn’t have...
