About Me: 

I am a Greek/Jewish/Israeli woman, mother of three daughters and a Reiki master. I am active in Healing Israeli-Palestinian Relations, and an enthusiastic participant in the Joint Venture for Peace. Over the last year I have met Israeli and Palestinian women who are willing to cooperate to empower each other fincancially and emotionally and serve as bridges between our people. In response to this experience I have authored the collection of poems:They All Sound Like Love Songs, Women Healing Israeli-Palestinian Relations. I offer lectures and workshops on "Women, Healing, Coexistence" that bring together my poetry, reiki, and creative visualization for peace.

My Passions: 
Women's sisterhood, Caring for each other
My Challenges: 
Healing Israeli-Palestinian Relations
My Vision for the Future: 
A lively cooperation in business and culture with the Palestinian people
My Areas of Expertise: 
Public Speaking, Writing, Facilitating women's groups, healing
