We are happy to share some thank-yous we have received

To the One on One Meditation team,

I have just made a donation to this important enterprise,  that I was privileged to enjoy the support of during my darkest hours in this past year.

I think that the best definition for the doing of this project, and especially Merav Rat whom escorted me, is – sacred doing.

The warm relationship with Merav started from day one, and deepened throughout the process. Thanks to Merav's special way I learned about meditation, both theoretically and practically. And thanks to her empathy to me, in such difficult experiences that I went through, I understood how meaningful these meeting were for my rehabilitation.

As I wrote to her: "Everything you gave me with the goodness of your heart opened a window to a vast world. I believe a day shall come and I will broaden my knowledge in that world. I want to thank you again, and forever I will be thankful. You were the right person for me at the right time!

And to all other members of the project – you have my thanks as well. As the song goes: "Good people in the middle of the way"

 

Blessing and best of luck

"One on One Meditation project is one of the finest projects I have encountered for people dealing with illness and uncertainty. 

Amir arrives and taught Shahar how to meditate, observe his thoughts and relax.

I feel that something in Shahar has become more relaxed, he feels a connection to the meditation practice, and I’m sure his is due to Amir’s wonderful and knowledgeable personality, and due to the depth and wonder of the teaching.

The sessions with Amir are inseparable from Shahar’s healing process. 

Shahar learned to know himself and life in a deeper manner, and acquired tools that will without a doubt serve him in life such as - stability, awareness and approaching life hardships with an open heart.

And all of this we received completely voluntarily, with a pure will of doing good.

I have no words to thank you."

I met Noa whom lives just a couple blocks away, and even though she offered to come, I preferred to walk to her home every week even in weeks when the therapy made me weak. Having a reason to leave the house already made me feel better!

Noa was there for me in learning meditation and listening to myself.

She was there for me in so many other ways – She was by my side throughout the long process I went through, during treatment and afterwards, with all the fickle thoughts and emotions I felt in that intense period of my life: From anxiety to thankfulness to whatever came up…

In every session we sat for a while, in whatever posture I was capable of and then we would talk.

These meetings, with someone stable were an anchor for me. And of course this new ability she taught me – to listen to my body and mind and all that's going on inside. This understanding was so supportive, helped me figure myself out every time and strengthened my belief in myself and my body.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this happen!

"Among Ilana's numerous attempts in healing, you, Abigail, were a ray of light. This might be an overused phrase but when you think about it it's so accurate and beautiful.

You offered your guidance to Ilana with so much persistence and asked for nothing in return.

You probably know from her that most of her treatment environment was quite different...

I personally want to thank you, and if you were by my side I would hug you.

"I felt the will to donate to One on One after I came across this project , that combines professionality and volunteer spirit of giving not in order to be rewarded.

Reaching out to those in need is a noble and moving act, and I would like to bless you and express my appreciation. 

Especially I would like to commend Dr. Yossi Los that taught and practiced with me with great dedication and professionalism.

He came voluntarily and I am sure he has a great [rt in my dealing with my health situation and my Healing process."

"Near the end of my chemotherapy I found your  flyer on the hospital table, as if it was waiting just for me.

It took me some time to contact , but I finally did.

You sent  Oded, a kind man, full of knowledge and wisdom.

Our sessions felt like a real lifesaver.  After such an intense year , in which I couldn’t deal with all of the emotions and daily difficulties that overcame me. The mindfulness meeting saved me, taught me to breathe, to find space, acceptance and attentiveness to and within myself.

Now I can say that it was the most useful  tool of this period. Together with Oded's smile and empathy, it was perfect.

I have a warm place in my heart to these sessions, meeting the mindfulness and Oded whom listened and taught and made it all such a pleasant experience.

Thank you so much for doing this."

 “When I was laying in hospitals, before and after the head surgery I have recently had to go through, I was constantly focusing on avoiding falling over into darker places in my mind- aggression, self-pity, taking offence and others. When Yoav, the volunteer arrived, I immediately recalled what is important to focus on, even for a mere half an hour a day: love, compassion and thankfulness for all forms of life. I began meditating every day, and joy and peace are retuning to me. The world seems completely different. A huge huge thank you!” Yulia from Modiin.
