Our founders Eva Dalak and Dalit Eliahu experienced a profound change within themselves through taking part in and graduating with a Master Degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica in California. (www.universityofsantamonica.edu)
Israeli, Eva and Dalit were born in the same place during the same year. However, Eva is of Palestinian descent and Dalit is of Jewish descent.
Before traveling to Israel in 2011, Eva asked Dr. Ron Hulnick (co-founder of the Master’s Program in Spiritual Psychology) to connect her with Israeli women who were also committed to peace building. Dr. Hulnick arranged for her to meet Dalit.
This meeting was a unique experience for both women. For the first time in their lives, ethnic, religious and national identities were so unimportant they were not even discussed.
The two’s deep connection and mutual interest in Spiritual Psychology led them to immediately embrace their shared humanity and inspired them to envision supporting citizens of Israel from all backgrounds to transform their own society.
From this first meeting of two women who came from opposing sides of history and now stood united arose a shared vision that conflict transformation from within can happen for anyone who is interested and committed. This idea is applicable to all citizens of Israel, the Middle East and eventually the entire planet once one has learned to connect to his or her own humanity and leave behind fear, shame and guilt that leads to projections and blame.
Dalit created a version of the Spiritual Psychology Program focused on Israelis, a 9-month course in which participants learn the skills and tools to arrive at a deeper understanding of themselves.
These transformative workshops are the next step in Dalit and Eva’s vision and create a safe, shared space where both Palestinians and Jewish citizens can learn the key elements of Spiritual Psychology and dedicate themselves to building peace and acceptance inside themselves and their country.
