I’m a Dhamma “yogini” and a human rights/ development professional. Originally from Israel, I’m based in London.
I’ve been practising meditation for 18 years, of which I dedicated two years to on going intensive silent meditation retreats while living in Buddhist monasteries in Nepal and Burma. Over the past couple of years I’ve been sharing and teaching vi-passana and metta in different frameworks in the UK, India and Israel.
Most of my time practicing intensively was dedicated to practising Vipassana (insight meditation/mindfulness) and Metta (loving kindness) and to the cultivation of infinite compassion, joy and peace. I also dedicated long months to practising the attainments of higher levels of concentration, also known as Samadhi (full absorption).
Besides becoming a “yogini” and a meditation facilitator, I’ve been working for more than twelve years as a human rights, relief and development professional. I’ve lived and worked in the West Bank, India, Nepal, Myanmar, London and Ukraine. I’m currently working as a Programmes manager at the World Jewish Relief – a London based International Development charity. I’m regularly involved in promoting mindfulness projects and explore the the link between ethics, wholeness and social change.
