Few weeks we were honored to host Dr. Deepak Chopra in Israel for the second time. Dr. Chopra brought a group of his guests, who came to Israel to walk in the “Footsteps of Jesus.” Their tour featured visits throughout the country including the Christian Holy Sites as well as learning with Dr. Chopra.

For the readers that don’t know Dr. Chopra, he is the author of more than fifty books that were translated into over thirty-five languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers in both the fiction and nonfiction categories. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, Adjunct Professor at Kellogg School of Management and Senior Scientist with The Gallup Organization. He is also the co-founder and President of the Alliance for a New Humanity. Time magazine once heralded Deepak Chopra as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century and credited him as ‘the poet-prophet of alternative medicine”.

Dr. Chopra and his wife Rita, brought 30 VIP guests to Israel . These guests came from all over the world and we had the privilege of starting the journey in the city of Tel Aviv which celebrates 100 years. We than continued the tour and visited Caesarea.
Caesarea
On Tuesday day and in every morning thereafter, we started the day with Meditation. That day, we had a Tour of Nazareth and Kfar Kana , had great lunch in “Pioneer” and visited Moshav Nahalal which is Israel’s first moshav settlement. The first settlers were central figures in the history of Jewish settlement in modern Israel. They created a way of life combining social justice, equal opportunity, work of the land and an independent family farm. The way of life in the moshav and its special architectural planning in the form of a circle create a socio-economic structure that is one of a kind in Israel and the world. At Nahalal the group enjoyed a delicious meal made from the fresh produce from the moshav, learned about the family’s fascinating connection to Nahalal as well as an opportunity to visit their “sleek” (a pre-war of Independence Jewish underground’s weapons cache). We then enjoyed a view of the entire Jezreel Valley and had a chance to visit the cemetery where Moshe Dayan and Ilan Ramon have been buried.

Sea of GalileeWe continued by visiting Mt. Tavor and the Church of the Transfiguration at the Summit and had an amazing overview of the Sea of Galilee Including Meditation led by Dr Chopra.

Kfar Nachum

On Wednesday we saw some Christian Sites around the Sea of Galilee (Mt. of Beatitudes -Sermon on the Mount, Tabcha – Fish Loaves, Kfar Nachum – First Church), we sailed and done meditation on the Sea of Galilee from Capernaum to Ginnosar, then we visited the “Jesus” Boat at Ginnosar and had wine Tasting at the Golan Heights Winery, including an overview of the Gamla Fortress and Church of Dier Karuch and overview from Mount Bental.

BaniasOn Thursday we started with short walk and discussion at Banias (Biblical Caesarea Philippi). We enjoyed an amazing authentic picnic lunch in the nature and at the afternoon we started our journey to Jerusalem via the Jordan Valley

We stoped at the actual Baptismal Site at Kaser El Yahud and had a desert mediation at Abraham’s Tent. We finished the day with biblical Dinner with Judean Desert Musical Accompaniment. Abraham’s Tent, Genesis Land is situated in the heart of the Judean in the land where the Patriarchs lived. A magical place, it enables visitors to experience life as it was in biblical times. Visitors to Genesis Land are greeted by Eliezer, Abraham’s manservant, and by a train of camels which lead them down to Abraham’s tent, where visitors would experience his legendary hospitality.
At Genesis Land, the stories of the Bible come to life in the very landscape in which they took place.

Overview of JerusalemOn Friday we had the most beautiful overview of Jerusalem from the Has Promenade. We started our journey at the Shiloch pool in the David City. We visited the southern wall of the Temple Mount and had a tour the Jewish Quarter
Dormation Abbey, Room of the Last Supper and the Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu.
The highlight of the day was an evening visit to the Western Wall for the Sabbath.

On Saturday morning we started with an overview from the Mt. of Olives followed by a visit to the Church of the Ascension, Dominus Flavit and The Garden of Gethsemane. We walked to the Kidron Valley second temple period tombs and the highlight was the Via Dolorosa and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Our guests had a great visit Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity ( we couldn’t participate due to security reasons).

On Sunday Dr Chopra and the team started the day at the Temple Mount and then went out of Jerusalem to the ancient Qumran and the highlight of Sunday was Masada.
We had the peak time of the trip in the middle of the Judean Desert with amazing dinner, dances and meditation in a fantastic location.

On Monday we had a Jeep tour in the Area of the Judean Desert and we drove to Eilat for dinner and sailing on the Red Sea.

Petra-The last day was devoted to Petra, the giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of a departed race which has nothing in common with modern civilization, and ask nothing of it except to be appreciated at their true value – as one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man. Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed.
Often described as the eighth wonder of the ancient world, it is without doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction

This trip was an eye-opening trip for me and thanks to Aviad Meital our Guide and Nachshon VIP– the company that together with Aviad made this trip a “dream came true”. We now have 30 ambassadors of the wonders of Israel.

I recommend this company to any team that wants to experience the best of Israel – (nachshonviptours) .

Amplify & Brain
April 1, 2009, 8:51 am
Filed under: Daily Post | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

blue3For me the brain is yet a big mystery and it is the same for many people around the world, but research is making a lot of progress in understanding how the brain is works, Amnon my friend has demonstrate to me the power of writing and the impact it has on the brain. I read a lot about the power of imagination and the fact that for the brain handles reality and dreams in a very similar manner.

Today I talked with my friend Isaac about the phenomena of ” amplification ” that happens in the brain. For example, when we take a deep breath the brain knows that we are relaxing and amplifies it, taking advantage of the intense flow of oxygen in our blood . The same happens when we giggle and feel happy. Physical effects are amplified by our brain and therefore create a bigger effect on us.

Yet there is a long way until we will understand the effect of fear and the impact it has on our lives, of the impact of being sad or worried and the how the brain amplifies these feelings, sometimes to the point of panic or depression.

Therefore optimism is such a strong tool which we can use to positively bias our brain and help amplify good things that we want to have in our lives or reach, or even impact the way we handle challenging or demanding tasks. Because after all, the brain is made up of huge populations of networked neurons which are competing for dominance, and if we let the positive side take over, we will surly see the impact across everything we think and do.

Innovation – from Leptop to I-Phone
March 31, 2009, 1:39 pm
Filed under: Daily Post | Tags: , , , , , ,

In Merriam Webster dictionary the word Innovation stand for the “introduction of something new , a new idea, method, or device”,pic for few days I am thinking about one device that has changed my life, my mobile phone(I-phone from Apple) Is with me since February 2008 but only In the last 2 weeks I left the office without my laptop, after 17 years I finally manage to detached from the laptop, this is a great opportunity to write about innovation, the power of technology and new ways to connect with people.

I have used many of the smart phones since 2003, but it was never a good replacement to my laptop, keyboard was too small, the lack of power and the number of applications were not enough also the battery died after few hours of heavy usage.

iphoneBut now I use the I-phone for almost all communication and for entertainment, I’m using it for regular calls and IP calls, for SMS, Twitter, Chat, IM, internet, Facebook and other communities, for the first time I feel that the mobile phone can replace the PC and maybe the TV, Radio, Music, video, books, news and games. . . in large part of the my day this is all I need, even the author Deepak Chopra write with his books using his blackberry.

I love technology and I admire companies that built product with such innovation such as Apple, they give me a lot of inspiration to take personal development, mentoring and coaching to the mobile world with Interactive application that will combine podcasts, video’s questionnaires and dashboards and will allow us to practice anytime and anywhere and improve our lives.

Few months ago we developed an interactive online program based on Deepak Chopra’s Best seller – Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. Our aim was to help people implement the method in their lives.

karma
I think that it is very important to start your day with 15 to 30 minutes practice of the Seven Laws. I have been doing it every day for the last few month, feeling that it is helping me to balance my life and achieve my deepest desires.

The laws offer anyone who wants to create a meaningful and happier reality, the practical tools and clear knowledge of what success is and how to reach it.
Designed to connect you to the mystery of existence, the seven laws will guide you to fulfill your true potential, and live a balanced and inspired life.
Seven simple daily laws contain all the information you need in order to begin your personal journey.

While connecting to Tuesday’s law, The Law of Karma, I realized that Every moment is a moment of choice and therefore every moment is a moment of infinite possibilities.

In order to understand and implement the law into your life, you can ask yourself to recognize that you are a choice maker, to anticipate the consequences of your choice and to listen to your body to sense the affect of your choice.

The Law of Least Effort

Jeff, one of my closest friends, called me yesterday. He was very frustrated. He cannot understand why his team manager does not treat him accordingly to his great efforts. He shared with me the fact that lately, due to atmosphere efficiency, fairing and cutting costs he has decided to act. He made the decision to be more involved, to initiate, help, and stand out – or in other words, become a core part of the team and the organization. As a result his mangers will find out how difficult it would be if they were to lose him as an employee in the hopes that they wouldn’t let him go, even when harder times come.

Following the plan he created, he initiated new business directions in order to increase revenues. He shared his work and information with his team members. He worked a lot of hours from the office and even took work home with him, working late into the night to reach his goals. Jeff speaks at all meetings, respects other peoples ideas and thoughts and gives his boss tips regarding the work of the team as well as all the information needed to assist him as well.

He hoped that his strategy would produce results, gaining appreciation, but instead the opposite seemed to occur. Despite his efforts Jeff does not feel appreciated. He finds himself getting into a lot of arguments as it seems no one sees his efforts and his manager constantly trys to avoid him. Frustration sinks in and Jeff starts to resent everyone for not seeing his hard work. Each and every day the fear of getting fired fuels the fire to try harder, even if he is not being acknowledged.

While we discussed this situation, I used some information, knowledge and examples which I took from Deepak Chopra’s new interactive program: “The Seven Laws of Success Online Program”

One of Deepak’s laws is the forth law: “The Law of Least Effort”. The path to fulfillment doesn’t need to be so difficult, and offers three liberating steps to a happier and more abundant life by taking the path of least effort.
1. Accept people, circumstances, and events as they are in this moment. When confronted with any challenge, remind yourself, “This moment is as it should be,” because the entire universe is as it should be.

2. Take responsibility for your situation without blaming anything or anyone, including yourself. Every problem is an opportunity to take this moment and transform it into greater benefit.

3. Be un-defended. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view. In defenselessness, you remain open to all points of view, not rigidly attached to one of them.

As for Jeff, I told him that it seems that he is trying too hard, and that’s why things are not happening as he planned. I suggested that he might consider stop trying so hard and take a break. He should understand that the universe will send him a massage to hold back a little and not try so hard, for sometimes when we are trying too hard we reach the opposite end result.

One of the exercises in the online program deals with situations such as Jeff’s and I invite you to practice it. Please take a couple of moments, sit down in a quiet place and answer the following question in writing!

What can you do today to better accept things as they are? (For example: to focus on what there IS in every situation, taking your time to respond and not react automatically, seeing things from many perspectives, etc.)

The purpose of this exercise is to help you direct your thoughts toward excepting things as they are so you can grow through them, getting you closer to reaching self fulfillment. As you can see, it is not about not-doing things. It’s about doing things differently.

Jeff did some thinking, and after completing some exercises decided to stop fighting for things to go his way and accepted things as they are.. He made the decision to stop worrying about the feedback from his boss and colleagues and just be who he is, do his best and keep himself open minded – welcoming any changes to come.

I also would like to add one phrase which I learned from my manager when I worked for Microsoft: “Do Few Things Well.” When we are doing a lot of things, we are not necessarily getting great results. Not when we do few things, but well…. It is always better, to us and to our surroundings.

I invite you to experience Deepak Chopra’s latest released project: The Seven Laws of Success online program and exercise your way towards success and a happier live.

The Seven Laws of Success online program is based on Dr. Deepak Chopra’s two best-selling books: “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” and “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga.” This new, interactive online program was created in order to help people realize their dreams and aspirations and fulfill their potential. Empowering them to live the life they always intended.

This amazingly easy and fulfilling program is rich and varied and includes hundreds of exclusive video and audio files, questionnaires, yoga exercises, explanations and meditation sessions all guided by Dr. Deepak Chopra & Dr. David Simon, who will help them to understand what success is, and inspire them to achieve it. I invite you to join the full program to practice all the seven laws and get yourself closer to outstanding success as well as a happier life.

I used to work for Microsoft for 13 years, and had the privilege of working with coaches throughout my career and personal life. I remember my first coaching session back in 1996 which, by the way, has never stopped since. I had realized then, that I had gained so much benefit from it and that I wanted to share it with as many people as I could. At the beginning I brought the news of coaching to my teams, which were followed by my colleagues. People around me started calling me “that coaching guy” as it gradually became a growing part of my life.

I found myself summarizing books that I read on personal growth and business management, as I was trying to implement them into my life. Let me tell you, it was not easy at all.

Even at Microsoft, the richest company in the world, only executives can benefit from coaching (directors and above) due to the financial cost. When I left Microsoft in Jan 2006, it was clear to me that I was going to dedicate the coming years of my life into bringing coaching to the masses.

I knew the time was right, I knew that the internet would have something to do with it, and I knew that lots of people are going to benefit from it.

Three years ago, my dream was realized in the form of “Coaching Interactive”- my baby. The decision to establish Coaching Interactive, sprung from the belief that coaching and personal growth should be common property. I see our vision as bringing as many people as possible closer to growth. Our efforts and vision embrace people, wherever they are, offering each one of them various solutions and tools using high-end technology to provide simple and easy to use solutions at affordable prices.

In my opinion, the way to realize this vision is by establishing cooperation between people all over the world with mentors, coaches and coaching schools around the globe using common unifying objectives. This is an era of outstanding opportunity for synergic cooperation that will help increase and fulfill the enormous potential of coaching.

Yours,

Doron Libshtein, CEO
