About Solar Bodhidharma
Growing up in the Holy Land of Israel, spirituality has been an integral part of Solar’s life from a young age. At the age of 19 he started studying kabalah with Michael Laitman.
In 2006 he experienced a spontaneous spiritual awakening while living in India which changed the course of his life.
He moved to India at the age of 23, where he studied Shamanism, Taoism and Yoga.
In 2008, his interest in human potential and spiritual evolution brought him to meet Peggy Dylan in France, where he studied and was certified as a ‘Fire Walking’ instructor.
In 2009, he met his first guru from the lineages of Ananda Marga and the Nath tradition. While studying Theravada Buddhism with his guru, Bodhidharma received initiation and was given his spiritual name.
In southern India, Bodhidharma practiced Tantric methods of mental development and liberation through spiritual relationships - breaking through attachments, narcissistic tendencies and Shadow work. There he met a Yogini who initiated him into the sexual Tantric practices and encouraged him to further his studies and practice.
Bodhidharma chose to become a Yoga teacher because being a guide for others on the spiritual path, sharing spiritual teachings, and the adoration of Shakti became natural and essential parts of his life. He knew his life's purpose would be to spread the Dharma and is always practicing and teaching the most integral and holistic systems for supporting others in their spiritual evolution. He teaches in English and Hebrew.
Bodhidharma's teaching experience includes spiritual life coaching for both individuals and small groups with a focus on integral and evolutionary life practice, sexuality, bodywork and relationships. He most enjoys witnessing the transformation and joy that comes from breaking through limitations and experiencing new levels of freedom. He is also inspired by being a leader and innovator on the cutting edge of spiritual practice and in integrating this practice into everyday life.
About Aida Lucie
Growing up in a spiritual family and environment, Aida’s spiritual journey started from a very early age. When she was 12 years old, her mom experienced a spiritual awakening. This incident was the first of many that rooted and paved Aida’s journey on the spiritual path. In her later teenage years, she had her first spiritual breakthrough which led to a major shift in perspective. In one moment the entire structure of her personality dropped. Her interests in cheerleading, partying, and the typical teenage life disappeared and from then on she had a constant pull towards sacred dance, meditation, yoga, tantra, and self-inquiry practices.
After attending one of the great meetings of the elders of the indigenous tribes of South America, her parents sent her to stay with a shaman/medicine woman in Colombia for her 18th birthday for a rite of passage initiation and training.
This opened her up to the spiritual path and she has since then traveled around the world studying from various spiritual masters in India, Thailand, Bali, Mexico, and Australia. Along her journey she participated in various highly accredited teacher trainings, and hosted & assisted workshops all over the world.
She is a 500hr Yoga Alliance Teacher, Hridaya Meditation teacher, & Shakti Spirit Teacher. She is also a certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Ayurvedic Bodyworker.
For the past 3 years, she has been studying and practicing at a traditional Tantric school and continues to work closely with Monika Nataraj. This background makes all of her offerings mainly focused on utilizing sexual energy as a catalyst for spiritual growth, and using meditation and self-inquire for the revelation of the Spiritual Heart.
Her view on spirituality is very inclusive, celebrating life in all its glory without denying any aspect of it, while constantly remembering the background of it all, the Holy Spirit which holds it all together. The eternal dance between Shiva & Shakti.
