EranMy name is Eran. I grew up in Israel and lived there for 29 years. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003 and I’m happy to still call it home. For a long while my passion was computers, specifically networked and social services. I studied computer science and worked as a software engineer for most of my adult life. A few years ago I took up the practice of meditation and that became the seed for a huge shift in my interests and in my life.

At the moment I am a student at CIIS working towards an M.A. in East-West Psychology. I am also studying the Hakomi method with the Hakomi Institute of California. I am taking this time of transition to further explore my own process of transformation and to acquire skills for what I hope is the next chapter in my life. My vision, which is still in the process of formation, revolves around supporting others in their own process of growth, healing and transformation. This is something that I find satisfying and important on several different levels.

I am writing this blog for several reasons. First, I enjoy writing as a way of expressing myself and keeping a blog is a good way to keep writing; I also enjoy talking to people about these topics and I hope this might spark some conversation. Beyond self-expression, it is important for me to be transparent about my process. Writing here is a way for me to hold myself responsible to the world at large, knowing (or hoping) that if I get overly inflated someone will call me out on that. I also hope that by being open in this way, sharing my path, where I am in my process, and admitting my flaws and limitations I can represent myself accurately to anyone who considers working with me in the future. Last, I would be very pleased if someone finds what I write here to be helpful in whatever way, even as a warning 🙂
