Workshop

The behavioral barometer is a central tool in One Brain Kinesiology. Kinesiology is a series of tests that locate weaknesses in specific muscles reflecting imbalances throughout the body. We will be learning and practicing a few types of muscle testing in order to use them for self understanding. Working in couples, each person will choose a goal and treat his partner using the behavioral barometer to clear physical, conscious and subconscious negative emotions to create positive beliefs surrounding his goals.

Becky Rothstein.jpg

Becky became interested in positive thinking and self-awareness after moving from Chile to Israel at age 16. She suddenly had to transition to life in a new country, a childhood blow to her self-confidence and creativity. As a young mother and wife she found herself unhappy and full of anger. Her body began to express her suffering as her right leg shortened from childhood polio that doctors had declared cured. She endured debilitating back pain coupled with digestive resistance to the painkillers she was taking regularly. 

Investigating methods for self-healing, Becky quickly understood that personal reality stems from our own thoughts. A workshop based on the positive thinking methods of Louise Hay taught her to stop blaming herself and empower change. Feelings of failure gradually disappeared. She listened to her pain to understand its message, choosing to embrace supportive and positive thoughts. 

Today Becky takes no pain medication and walks without a limp. She provides a true mirror of deep listening and simple guidance that offers solutions. Becky Rothstein is Israel's only authorized teacher trainer in the positive thinking methods of Louise Hay. Over 30 years of experience allow her to precisely identify the issues that plague people and teach them to find their answers inside.

1. Doors Closing, Doors Opening
What are your dreams and visions for the rest of your life? Clarify the only two possibilities of inner guidance–fear and love. Which one is dominant for you?

2. “Should” and “Could”
“Should” closes out our possibilities; “could” opens the way. Being aware lets us make the changes we crave to bring opportunity to our lives.

3. Negative Messages
We each hold a storehouse of less-than-good-feeling beliefs. We are the owners of our storehouse and can housekeep it the way we want. Let go and let love.

4. Inner Child
With the power of self-love and -acceptance, we learn to reframe snapshots from our past. Compassion releases our difficult stories and sets us free. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. 

5. Forgiveness
Forgiveness opens the door to love. This is the path to Whole Health.

Throughout her 30+ years as a nurse anesthetist, Yehudis wondered why so many people suffer chronic pain and illness despite medical and technological advances. She saw Western medicine falling short in offering surgery and medicines as the only methods of care to patients. Allopathic medicine often inadequately addresses a patient’s complex issues. How is it that people are told, "You just have to live with your pain, insomnia, asthma, allergies, diabetes, anxiety...(fill in the blank)?”

Yehudis believes that treatments such as acupuncture and herbalism can bridge the health care gap. These therapies and medicines help train the body to energize and heal itself. Acupuncture appears to have a regulatory effect on neurotransmitters and hormones. It offers a calming effect, can reduce inflammation, and often stimulates the body’s natural drive towards inner balance or homeostasis unlike any Western treatment.

Nevertheless, alternative medicine does not always consider the serious nature of many diseases. Long believing in the integration of modern and alternative treatments, Yehudis has come to realize that the wave of the future is to have all options open for healing. Whether administering anesthesia for surgery or an acupuncture treatment for pain or illness, she will not likely forgo all her years of training as a nurse anesthetist in order to exclusively practice alternative medicine. Similarly, she could not resume offering Western medicine treatments alone. Yehudis's goal is to evaluate each person’s condition for appropriate Eastern and Western recommendations to treat the whole person.

Workshop: Treating the Whole Person: Personalized and Patient-Centered Healthcare Combining Western and Eastern Medicine

Both patients and practitioners alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach, designed to treat the person, not just the disease.

IM (Integrative Medicine) depends on a partnership between the patient and the practitioner whose goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit concurrently. Therapies like acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage can be combined with medications and medical modalities to achieve optimal wellness and health. Learn more about treating the whole person by means of truly holistic practices.

Andrew David Shiller, MD is a Torah Jew who made aliyah in 2015. For 20 years he has been applying principles of functional medicine, osteopathy, and mindbody medicine to address unresolved pain and chronic illness. He completed a double residence at Harvard Medical School in Internal Medicine and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and is board certified in Israel and the USA. He serves on the staff of Tel Hashomer Hospital in the Pain Rehabilitation Unit, and sees patients in private practice in Jerusalem and Modiin, as well as virtual visits worldwide. He can be reached at www.drshiller.com.

Workshop: Integrative Medicine for Auto Immune Disease in a Torah Context

The Torah asks us to affirm each day, "Shma Yisrael Hashem Elokeinu Hashem Echad.”   This not-so-simple phrase is pregnant with meaning and inspiration about how to cope and heal from chronic illness. We are told to trust G-d’s care of us. How does that help us respond to autoimmune diseases like arthritis, lupus, colitis, and multiple sclerosis? Can healing empower our faith? Can our faith help us heal? How are prayer and healing mirror images?

Torah sages taught us much about healing. Meditative prayer, positive intention and the kabalistic structure of our conscious and soul powers can do more than transform our neurochemistry; they can galvanize our will to make the changes that empower healing. They can help us align our will with that of G-d.  The thought, speech, and action that comprise our self-care then become part of our G-dly service.

A science-based, integrative, three-part model of auto-immune disease motivates a variety of effective self-care and lifestyle choices. It offers balance and healing for our metabolic system and biochemistry–our mechanics and structure–and activates the healing power of our mindbody relationships. It puts our efforts squarely in the center of our service of G-d according to Torah principles.

Yoga is an integral part of Sarka's daily life and her way of perceiving the world. She started practicing dynamic styles of yoga, which she learnt in Europe and India, in 2004. She then discovered the enormous potential of a gentler approach to the practice during her 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training inthe Prana Yoga Teacher College of Vancouver. There she experienced the power of deeply meditative Yin Yoga and received that certification. Sarka's way of teaching encourages the students to bring full awareness to the present moment, inspires them to peacefully connect through their body and breath with their true self and thus discover their own immense life potential. 

Workshop: Yin Yoga: Journey to the North Side of the Mountain
Yin Yoga merges yogistic and Taoist traditions for a practice of quiet power. Most yoga practices in the Western world tend to have a yang nature, focused on muscle work to reach a particular form. Yin yoga focuses on softness, surrender, acceptance and a meditative state of mind. Attention is drawn towards the connective tissues, of such importance to the range of motion (ligaments, tendons, fasciae, joints). Yin yoga specifically targets the lower spine, pelvis and femur joints and effectively stimulates meridians that pass through this area of body. Each posture is held for relatively long period of time (3 to 5 minutes) to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues. Yin yoga can be quite a challenging practice due to the length of time postures are held. The release of stiffness is not only on the physical level, but allows space for emotional cleansing. Other benefits are deep relaxation,  a peaceful mind and renewal of the life force. It is a great complement to a dynamic yoga practice, sports, and our sometimes hectic life. 

Suitable for all levels of practitioners, with variations to fit everyone´s needs and dispositions. Please inform Sarka about any health or other concerns you might have before the start of the yoga class.
