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...

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...

Rosh Hashanah message – Remembering our Center

Posted by on Sep 17, 2015

What’s our origin? I read a story that I want to begin with from Rabbi Perez’s book, ‘Leading the way’. A woman is sitting at the edge of the river where she sees a scorpion struggling for safety. The scorpion is slowly drowning as it battles. Eventually she puts out her had to try and help it but it stings her with his tail and continues struggling in the water. Again she tries to save it but keeps getting stung. After a while a passerby shouts out, “Fool, do you want to kill yourself trying to save that creature?” To this she replies, “Because it is the nature of the scorpion to sting, why should I deny my nature to save it.” This story highlights the limitless potential for greatness that we all have access to, despite adversity.

A lesson in LIFE

Posted by on Sep 17, 2015

What’s LIFE got in store for me? This week I had an opportunity to sneak off to the beach alone for a few hours. This time is absolute bliss for me as I reconnect to myself and take in the beautiful sea air. It’s a gift I give to myself where I leave my many roles of mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend behind. It’s a time to replenish and just be ME. The timing was perfect as I had a chance to contemplate the year coming to an end and how my year was ending, what I had achieved and what I hadn’t gotten around to yet. After a long walk, I entered the sea for a swim. This is the best prize after a vigorous walk. At first the sea was manageable and I noticed people further...

5 choices to make around Habits

Posted by on May 28, 2015

Are you ready to change your HABITS? Today I read this wonderful piece/poem on habits from my Yoga teacher friend Liat Fineberg. I think that we all are ‘trapped’ by habits that we would like to break.For a few minutes today try and focus on where you are in taking responsibility for these habits. Maybe it is time to stop or do something different. The ideas are simple and powerful. While reading it, decide which one you are, and then decide which one you want to be. 1) I walk down the street. There is a hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost…. I am hopeless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out. 2) I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I...
