Maya Karni

Makom Laruach is the fulfillment of a dream and a vision shared by me and by Dorit Shippin.  מאיה קרניAfter meeting in a meditation seminar, we realized that our dream was to establish a supportive communal center that would provide a peaceful environment—far from the stresses and the obligations of modern life—and would help people to reach the goal of harmony of the body, mind, and soul.

The various activities that we offer in Makom Laruach are based on our holistic view, which holds that a person is much more than his or her components; therefore, there are many different ways to reach that desirable harmony.  The activities of MakomLaruach are enjoyable, and are practiced either in small and intimate groups, or in one-on-one sessions.

We believe that it is definitely possible enrich one’s life, to better one’s health, and to overcome one’s physical, emotional, and mental difficulties by regularly practicing enjoyable activities.  

At Makom Laruach, I offer personal guidance, holistic therapy, chi kung practice, meditation, and dance for the soul. I also lead story telling sessions and discussions, and I offer a FREE consultation session; enter here to schedule a FREE meeting.
