"AKIVA" - WHO I AM ~ WHAT I DO
"Akiva" is my Hebrew name. It can mean different things to different people. To me
it symbolizes my essence...my Jewish heritage.
For the past 30 years I have been a searcher and 'God wrestler'.
In my quest for answers, I learned that Judaism offers ancient methods to aid in one's healing. Most of my co-religionists
were not aware that such material was available.
I was astonished to discover that our what the Rabbis and Jewish
scholars have taught is that our minds have such a tremendous influence on the workings of our bodies. In fact, many of the
books I had been reading, written by Rabbis, Jewish mystics and
well known current day medical doctors have confirmed that observation.
The more I read,the
more convinced I became that the mind, body, spirit connection was real and could be used to help people help themselves.
In addition, I found wonderful techniques available in our Jewish traditon.
Our Rabbis have taught and current research supports the theory that when a person is extremely
pro-active in his/her healing process, something positive gets added to the process and remarkable results can occur
My work is to help people discover the healing power within Jewish teachings. Once a person finds it, everything
in life begins to shift. Negative experiences endured as children, adolescents, or even as an adults can be emotionally disarmed
in ways that decrease the toxicity of the impact to one's mental and physical well being.
This shift in thinking can result in permanent and profound healing.
However, because most
of us yearn for security, we often become intimidated by new ideas and new ways of thinking. Understandably, we
feel more comfortable with what we know and is familiar to us. Nevertheless, the very essence of life is change
and transformation. 'The 'Art' of Jewish Healing' can be a positive byproduct of that growth and change if you are
willing to explore and practice the methods.
Of course, the ability to help heal oneself varies from person to person.
It is my assertion though, that anyone can power boost the benefits he or she receives from traditional therapies by working
with me on Judaic and integrative mind/body therapies.
These therapies have worked for
others and they can work for you!
