This talk covers aspects of dealing with stresses and the importance of managing our different roles in life. There is inspirationand new ideas about connecting to our bodies.

2 – Boosting Productivity through Wellness.
This talk will cover aspects of:
Understanding a broader idea of wellness. Wellness encompasses many other aspects of our life as well such as emotional, spiritual, financial, family and workplace wellness. Wellness is actually an overall state of wellbeing where balance is achieved between the body, mind and spirit. There is also a powerful exercise on the results of negativity within an environment. This exercise is an eye-opening exercise on how we weaken our immune systems when we are surrounded by negativity. The purpose of the talk is to create change within the individual who is coming to work which will have a ripple effect on the teams that are working together.

3 – What is your body telling you about your life story?
This talk will cover aspects of:

Exploring the connections between the mind and the body. I work as a practitioner in different areas of alternative health, and am passionate about the body’s innate ability to heal itself. I expresses this through my work with Therapeutic Reflexology and Logotherapy. I am fascinated by the role that the thoughts we think and our attitudes in life have on our lives and our bodies. My main emphasis through the talk is to encourage people to take responsibility for their illnesses, symptoms or diseases, and to understand deeper meaning behind them. All this allows us to live more fulfilled and enriched lives. I also do an exciting interactive exercise with the participants which is fun and mind blowing as to the effects of negativity that we often carry around in our heads.
I have found in the past that this talk is very inspiring and motivates people to be more productive at work and enrich their lives as well.

4 – Logotherapy – your inner strength revealed.
Every day we have opportunities to find meaning in whatever is going on in our lives despite whether they are good or bad. Logotherapy encourages and guides people to find this meaning and to do something to make that potential for meaning real. Logotherapy doesn’t ask “why” things happen, but helps and encourages one to find answers to “what now”. Dr. Viktor Frankl (1905-1997) author of Man’s Search for Meaning , a psychiatrist and neurologist who lived in Vienna both before and after WWII has helped millions of people through his teachings to overcome lifes difficulties. You are invited to explore some of these stories and lessons, and become inspired.

5 – Forgiveness and Healing
FORGIVENESS is the key to letting go of the past and allowing HEALING in. Too often we are caught up in resentments that eventually surface in our bodies as symptoms or diseases. Come and explore 5 reasons why it’s so hard to forgive, and discover the benefits that forgiveness will bring into your life. Empowering and relaxing meditation at the end.

Testimonials from previous talks:

“TEAM (Together English-Speakers Achieve More) in Rehovot was delighted to host Devorah Kur for the October 19, 2015 program, “Forgiveness and Healing.” This is the second time we have been so fortunate as to have Devorah as our speaker. In her warm, upbeat manner, Devorah encouraged the audience to view obstacles in their life as challenges which enable us to grow. With examples from her life and her practice, Devorah explained how carrying the burden of resentment, rather than being empowering, can be harmful to us, with physical effects, and was not productive to resolving painful situations, while forgiveness can be a release of negative feelings. She engaged the audience, respectful of the harm and abuse one may have suffered, clarifying that forgiveness was not condoning an action and might be better termed as “”letting go.” After her talk, the audience members had stimulating responses, asking about such topics as self-forgiveness, and carrying a burden of fear from previous incidents, sharing their own tales of being challenged to forgive.

We received positive responses to this thoughtful topic, delivered by a speaker who is so passionate about helping people. We recommend Devorah Kur as a speaker and would look forward to having her present to TEAM again!

Another testimonial from T.E.A.M

“Last week Devorah gave a lecture at T.E.A.M. (Together English speakers Achieve More) a social and cultural group for Anglo Saxons age 50+ in Rehovot. She spoke on Foregivness and Healing. It’s

a week later we are still talking about her message. Devorah made a lasting impression on all of us. There were those who were a little skeptical about such a “spiritual” talk at first. Afterwards
they admitted to being inspired by what Devorah said and how she said it. I recommend that everyone take the time out to hear such an enlightening talk. It could change your life.” Marlene Hemed T.E.A.M organiser

“Devorah’s presentation was informative, inspiring, unique and humorous. It also had a positive effect on ones thinking. The presentation complemented the intent of Women’s day at De Beers. I would definitely recommend Devorah for your Women’s Day functions or inspirational event” – De Beers Women’s Day

“Devorah’s knowledge, warmth, sincerity and belief in what she presented was very apparent, and so it was easy to listen to and learn from her. Her practical advise gave us all food for thought and something we could take home with us and integrate into our lives. Her guided meditation at the end of her talk put us all in a relaxed mood to enjoy the rest of the morning and feel centred and in-the-moment. She definitely added to the morning and complemented our other presenter, who did a demonstration of healing foods, so well. We received very positive feedback from our attendees and I would definitely recommend Devorah for future presentations.”  WIZO Womens Health morning

“Thank you for making our Women’s learning week 2009 a great success. It is due to the participation of inspired speakers such as yourself, that the programme is attractive to so many women. I’m sure your words of wisdom to the ladies will stimulate much spiritual growth. Your passion for healthy mind and body is so uplifting! Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us. May you always have strength and inspiration to continue the remarkable work that you do” Cape Town Womens Learning Week

“I found Devorah’s presentation extremely interesting, and she captured her audience. Devorah added a different mix of content that kept the audience captured. She came across as real and on the level of the audience, so they could relate to her.
I feel that she inspired the audience and motivated them within their businesses. She discussed networking with them and after her talk they all followed her suggestions and started networking straight away! Her talk had an effect on my thinking, moving me into a different space. It was very meaningful and the audience identified with her.  I really appreciated Devorah coming to speak at my networking event. She discussed her experience with ORT JET and made it real for the audience. She was very practical by setting small goals for the audience to take on and this was realistic and motivating for all that attended. I would absolutely recommend Devorah.” Cindy Silberg, Operations Manager ORT JET

Dr Avron Urison, ORT JET Consultant:  “Devorah gave a most inspiring and motivating talk at the ORT JET Networking Forum. Professionally done, Devorah used her own business experience and entrepreneurial knowledge to impart powerful messages and key learning points to the audience. I would highly recommend Devorah for corporate and community talks as a unique and wonderful experience for all those who listen.”
