I have been involved in mindfulness practice for over 20 years. I first learned meditation in 1980 at the Zen Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After a year of intense practice, I left to pursue my interest in Judaism. This led me to learn in yeshiva in Israel for over ten years. I learned Talmud with the late Rabbi Aryeh Carmel za’l and Chassidus in the yeshiva of Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh.
In 1997, I returned to the practice of mindfulness with the foundation of the Torah to guide me. I studied Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan’s books on meditation and trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. I learned with Professor Ron Siegel about how to use mindfulness in treating psychological stress. In addition, I am a certified addictions counselor and use mindfulness as a treatment modality for those on the road to recovery.
I have been teaching Jewish mindfulness to groups and individuals since 2015 and have seen men change their lives as a result of this practice.
I now live in Jerusalem, keep Torah and Mitzvot, and am a father to 6 children and 8 grandchildren.
I obtained my life coach certification from the Jerusalem Coaching Institute under the guidance of Dr. Leah Gniwesch. I use writing assignments, relaxation techniques, and healing visualizations to help men discover their strengths, become aware of their thoughts and feelings, and move quickly towards their chosen goal. I work with Jewish men who are highly motivated to transform their lives for the better.
I have coached men struggling with reaching a healthy weight, eating a nutritional diet, communication skills at work, finding a soul mate, and starting their own business.
I will empathize with you but also challenge you to step into your power as a man. If you want to be strong but not domineering, sensitive but not weak, creative, and dynamic then life coaching is for you.
As a life coach, I bring a lifetime of experience to my practice. My mission is to bring the positive lessons I have learned to my clients.
If you are struggling with:
- Low self-esteem
- Difficulty making decisions
- Addictive behavior
- An unhealthy relationship to food
- Social phobias
I can help you get unstuck and make a positive change in your life.
