Healing Space -
Integrative Healing for Trauma

On October 8th, we opened Healing Space - an innovative and integrative center for emotional healing centered on helping  people impacted by the traumatic events of 7.10.23 . Healing Space provides an innovative and preventive space for healing, that open to the natural environment and supported by community. The informal and warm atmosphere held by dedicated  professionals offer various ways  by which people connect with their inner ability to heal. These include body, spirit and soul through body and sensory work, emotional treatment and various workshops as in: yoga therapy, acro balance, music, arts, sound healing, work with the earth etc.,. 

to provide immediate and integrative support to trauma survivors to create emotional balance, and help people rebuild trust in themselves and in others, thereby drastically reducing the risks of trauma outlined above.

Our unique working model is built on four pillars:


Community as resource and foundation for belonging through connecting with people that went through similar experiences 

Unique setting:

The healing environment changes in light of what each population needs and is connected to nature reflecting life, growth and constant movement


Our clients have free choice and are invited to discover what their healing process involves as well as taking  responsibility for the process


Addressing mind,

body, spirit, and soul as different aspects holding the trauma as well as informing the healing


In a nation facing ongoing trauma, our vision is to support, consult and help open healing centers around the country that will be supported through highlighting the human resources in local communities - empowering communities to support their people and vice versa. We anticipate joining hands with other organizations  to advance integrative and informal healing that is professional and based on scientific evidence. We believe that Healing Space is an example of a new way to envision mental health that supports wholeness and thriving.  

  • To create healing journeys for various populations that face identity crisis and need to heal through understanding their strengths and potential as guiding direction in life.  

  • Capture learnings and advance national understanding of integrative healing for trauma

  • Support and walk communities and individuals through their healing process. 

  • Creating and offering healing days for therapists, volunteers, people from the medical professions and others who need the support.
