I am curious about the inner stories that make people who they are. I became more in touch with my inner story after being pushed towards therapy by challenges I faced in my own life. Through therapy, I learned that old beliefs are like knots, and therapy can help you untangle them. The key to understanding my inner story was to pay attention to the wisdom of the body. Our bodies can communicate things that our mind does not know; getting in touch with this knowledge helps us become aware of our emotions.

Once we start feeling the whole spectrum of our feelings, everything else becomes more meaningful. We accept more difficult emotions; we come out from the other side; we discover how truly happy we can be.

Having grown up in Israel, I am also aware of a multitude of cultural differences that may resonate with you. I am trained in Hakomi, mindfulness-centered somatic psychotherapy, EFT (Emotionally focused therapy) for couples and Somatic Experiencing (SE).

Ephrat Shapiro's Groups

Mindfulness a Path to Wellbeing

In this 8 week class we'll explore fundamental mindfulness practices and how to apply them to different aspects of our lives: conflicts, emotions, and dealing with change. This is the perfect introductory group for those who want to learn about meditation and mindfulness through a psychological lens. In the beginning of each group we will introduce a new meditation technique. We'll then explore Buddhist and western therapeutic traditions in the second half. Sessions also include a brief process group for integrating the material together. Participants will be asked to practice the meditations they are learning at home.
