I would love to leave this page empty after this sentence of wisdom, but as we know, the Mind loves stories, so here is my human story. And this story is a tricky thing to compose - through life we are going through stages and perspectives; values and relationship to past events change. What do I choose to bring up and make an important piece of the biography and what do I leave aside?
So, I am a grateful, happy, glowing creature that wishes to share these states with the world. When I was a kid, I heard that Ignorance is the biggest sin. Since then, learning, investigating, sharing and discovering became the Path. I love life. Every day finding the reasons for it, even if sometimes it's not easy. I breathe. I practice. I simply Am. And, to make this Bio short and to the point, I am putting the story into themed paragraphs.
This was also the stage in life when I realized that a new chapter was coming and I have no choice but to release my office career and photographer life forever and move into nature. That is when urban chapter was over and I moved to Adama, an eco-community in the Western Galilee of Israel, where I have lived for the last 7 years.
And that's who I am today, a human being who is passionate about living and bringing the benefits of the practice and holistic vision of life to the World. You can often find me walking barefoot in the moonlight, climbing apple trees or exploring hippie shops all over the world. And, having tremendous breakthroughs in my own life, creating vitality and health in Knowledge and Practice, I am happy for sharing and empowering others.
