Some personal things about me:

Writing:  When I was little, I really liked books and decided that when I’ll grow up I would be a writer. To this day I keep my first storybook that  I’ve  opened in second grade … 

Since then, a lot of water has flowed in the river of my life. Today, apart from my everyday writing in my “Morning  Diary”, I write regularly on topics related to the Hebrew Bible’s portion of the week, from a psycho-spiritual perspective and on topics  related to relationships that I post on  Facebook, blog, digital story collections and recently I am engaged in writing a  book and my  dream begins to come true.

Personal Development – Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by the discovery of what lies behind the scenes and drives people’s behavior. My hunger to grow forward and develop began when a good friend of mine from university offered me to seek counseling following a crisis I experienced in marriage and since then I have not stopped exploring and learning the mysteries of self:  I graduated with excellence my Master in Educational Counseling,  I am a Master Practitioner in NLP and A board certified in Psychodrama and Bibliodrama. Personal development has become a candle to my feet and a vocation in my life and I enjoy imparting the exciting experience of discovery to others.

In 2003, the circumstances of my life led me to the United States for a long time. My toolbox then included tools from the world of educational counseling, NLP, and Bibliotherapy in the classroom (following Dr. Deborah Kubobi’s  method).

I remember the worry that gripped me: What would I do in the USA that would significantly make sense to me? To translate the huge collection of literature and  analyzed  it according to the method of Dr/ Kubobi’s bibliotherapy method – would take a lot of time, to sit in libraries and look for new materials in English to apply the principles of the method – certainly not practical. Then a thought has crossed my mind that I could apply the principles of the mrthid to the stories of the Torah, since the Bible has already been translated into English!

It has been brought to my attention that there is a man in New York named Dr. Peter Pizzele, a literature scholar and psychodramatist who apparently works with Biblical stories using techniques from the world of psychodrama. He established a method called Bibliodrama According to his method the investigation of Biblical stories is done in action in psychodramatic techniques.

The motto of both the psychodrama and the Bibliodrama is “Do not tell me-show me” and the emphasis is not on conversation but on showing’ involving the whole body in the action. In this respect, it is a body-mind method.  It is already known that the body has the ability to remember things that the mind has forgotten, and when the whole body goes into action, memories that we “forgot” comes to life.

My experience with Bibliodrama made me realized that I had found my destiny. It is the method that connects all the things that I loves : the mysteries of the human psyche, stories- including biblical ones, and psychodrama.

After many years of leading Bibliodrama groups I have come to the conclusion that the characters and archetypes in Biblical stories play on our inner psychic theater stage more than we are willing to admit, they are wired into our heritage and cultural DNA, and as we learn to read the story behind the scenes And understand the archetypal level, it is often discovered that the Biblical story tells our personal story and this is a great way to reflect and do inner work.

Referring to the concept of “transgenerational transference” that has recently become popular I would like to suggest that certain patterns of behavior we experience today began even then in ancestral stories and their energy continues to roll down generations, to this day. When we do our healing work in the here and now and manage to release a grip from patterns and thoughts that misguide, while finding the connection to the original story, we may be able to bring healing not only to ourselves but also to that energy from the past.

There is nothing that expands my heart more than helping people, whether in short-term 1:1 personal encounters or group process, to observe behaviors and mental processes, and understand what motivates them at their root, in order to free themselves from fixation to inhibiting beliefs and allow a fuller life out of closeness to truth and authenticity. I do this through working with real life stories combined with Biblical stories using  the method of Bibliodrama (using techniques taken from the world of psychodrama) and other creative methods.

What else should I know about me?
