Throughout my life, I have experienced a rich tapestry of diverse endeavors and adventures that have taken me on a journey beyond my wildest dreams. From the vibrant rhythms of salsa dancing on the sun-soaked beaches of South Beach to the meditative energy of raves in the ancient city of Teotihuacan, my life has been a kaleidoscope of colors and experiences that have shaped my perspective and enriched my soul. My journey has taken me to the holy city of Jerusalem, where I pursued my passion for Rabbinical studies and discovered my deep connection to faith and spirituality. Along the way, I have been blessed with a loving partner and five beautiful children, who have brought joy and fulfillment to my life. As I have traveled the world, I have been on a mission to educate and promote the power of medical cannabis. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, my journey has taken a new turn, and I have delved deeply into the depths and power of plant medicine. Through my rabbinical skills of active listening and being present with Hashem (The Name), I have been providing guidance, coaching, and assisting others in integrating life’s journeys, both with and without medicine. As a Kohen, I have tapped into the ancient power of ritual and ceremony to create an appropriate set and setting for profound spiritual work. With a deep sense of purpose and a mission to shed light on any darkness we encounter on our paths, I continue to explore the vast potential of the human spirit and the transformative power of plant medicine.
