MICHELLE ANNE -- REFLEXOLOGIST
Michelle Anne was trained at Cape Reflexology College in South Africa. With 18 years of experience she uses her skills to improve quality of life. She made her home in Israel in 2002 and is raising two wonderful teenagers and yes! Reflexology is great for calming the nerves of both parents and hormonally challenged teens!
Experience Reflexology from Mother Nature in a Barefoot walk on stones, grass, sand and wood. Connecting to the Earth's natural energy in this way is called Grounding or Earthing and can diminish chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments that plague so many of us today. When our feet come in contact with the earth, free electrons are taken up into the body. They help neutralise the damaging excess free radicals that can lead to inflammation and disease. With the development of synthetic soles, the rapid advances in technology and our modern fast-paced lifestyles, many of us have become separated from our basic bond with mother Earth.
I invite you learn about the basic principles of reflexology and let's take off our shoes and reconnect, to the Earth and to ourselves.
AVIV BEN DAVID—IN SENSE
The incense world may be as ancient as the human use of fire, entwined into cultures for healing, cleansing, temples, meditation, prayer and more. My life is dedicated to exploring creation’s botanical wonders and unique ways to benefit from their medicinal value.
In this class we will identify key smells from our lives for an understanding of what incense is & how it works in us and our surroundings. We’ll explore the difference between the use of natural resins and alchemically combined incense. We’ll experience incense blindfolded, a practice that awakens the most primal part of our brain, taking us deep into ourselves to unfurl feelings and memories and reconnect to our present state on all levels.

ANTON KOREN—TONE DRUMS
Anton 1Tone presents a fine percussion instrument with a unique sound that leaves a positive impact on both player and environment. The sound resembles that of a string, with all its harmonics perfectly aligned to its fundamental vibration, the same way that a string instrument produces its long and harmonious sustain after being plucked or stroked. Anton imitates this behavior by careful tuning and design. Our ears no longer identify the natural metallic timbre as the drum’s tongues resonate more like strings.
Anton Koren established 1TONE in 2007. The first instruments built under this brand name were didgeridoos, a “single note” instruments that can play a wide variety of overtones, hence the name 1TONE. Next Anton was inspired to create a metal drum from an empty gas tank with tongue shaped cuts that he called, “steel tongue drum,” now the most common name for this instrument. Next came the “Eclipse Drum,” the first fine tuned tongue drum, a hybrid between the African tongue drum and the Caribbean steel pan with its partials tuned “inside” each note. This was a real breakthrough in the field, turning the steel tongue drum into a fine tuned instrument. The latest model is now the FunTone drum.

As founder of LifeChoice Consultant, she helps those that have experienced trauma, abuse and addictions and individuals needing help with life's challenges and/or relationships.

From age seven to 15 she “shadowed” her doctor grandfather and learned to “see” in the body, and “hear” the messages of organs. When she was diagnosed in the early 1990s with final stage liver cirrhosis and hypo-functioning pancreas, she augmented her grandfather’s wisdom with classes in natural healing techniques. She left her management career in 1994 to teach others how to discover “stuck places” (blocked energy), release reactive responses and realize new ways of living life proactively. When spirit and emotions are healed, optimal physical living can blossom and thrive.
