8-Part Mindfulness Series


A Simple Technique That Can Improve Your Health And Wellbeing

Facilitated By Lena Shore, MSc.

Mondays starting November 12, 2018 20:00 – 21:00

Mindfulness is the practice of being present. It is a simple idea but not so easy to achieve. The mind is constantly pulling us to be elsewhere, either remembering the past or ruminating about the future, thinking about another place where we would rather be, judging the person talking to us or thinking about what we will say when they finish. Rarely are we present with what is going on right now. So as we practice mindfulness and get better at being present, we start to notice things like the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the beauty of a flower by the side of the road, or the sweet sound of a baby’s laughter. We start to listen to what other people are saying to us and really feeling with them. We start to appreciate what we have in our life right now without longing for a remembered past or fantasizing about a possible future. We become more creative in solving problems and find the humor in situations that don’t seem to have a solution. We become a calmer, more centered and happier person and life becomes an exciting adventure.

The eight-week course we are facilitating at The Place will give the beginning student of mindfulness the basic skills he/she needs to establish his/her own practice. We will explore the ability to be mindful of one’s body, of movement, of listening and seeing. We will learn to be present with our thoughts, our emotional states, and experience a skillful means of dealing with pain. Each student will be encouraged to practice at home in addition to the weekly class. Time is given at the beginning and end of each class for sharing and feedback about his/her progress in the practice.

50 NIS per session, 350 NIS for all 8 sessions

Emuna Energy Workshops: Phase One


Tuesday November 13th, 20th, 27th and December 11th, 2018
20:00 – 21:30

Facilitated By Orit Esther Riter
Certified Emuna Energy Therapist
International Speaker & Author

Emuna Energy Therapy is a kind and gentle process that involves encouragement, forgiveness and letting go. It is based on emuna – that is, working towards acceptance of the Divine purpose and the lesson to be extracted from G-d’s messages to us via the events of our life. Energy medicine is a powerful yet safe and supportive method that promotes personal empowerment, self-healing and spiritual growth. What is a Jewish perspective on energy? –That there is one underlying unifying force that brings vitality into the world. There is only ONE source of all life that radiates many frequencies. In many other cultures, these energies may be given more than one name and assumed to come from different sources.

In contrast, Torah teaches energy is a manifestation of the Oneness of G-d and that we all formed out of the same substance. We might seem separate due physical divisions and separation, but we all receive constant energy from one Divine Source. Emuna Energy therapy helps us identify the barriers that block a healthy flow of Divine healing light. These blockages are often caused by unresolved emotions and past traumatic experiences. Tracing back and resolving these trapped emotions gives us the opportunity to open up, release and let go. This letting go then makes room for the Divine healing energy to spill forth and flow again.

Orit Esther is now teaching many of these energy techniques to women so that they learn to clear and positively shift their energy fields.

540 NIS for all 4 sessions, For Women Only.
