Using emerging technology and sustainable development to promote travel and tourism on the island of Paros, Greece

Building Tao’s center seemed to many people as an impossible challenge; 3 families from Israel that moved to Paros, a Greek island in the heart of the Cyclades, to build a Meditation Center with a Tai restaurant.

14 years later it is one of the few foreign businesses in the Aegean that is still growing and developing in spite of financial crisis in Greece.

I started my professional way as a journalist and field reporter. Most significant was my work in the late “Hadashot”, a daily newspaper where I worked as a field reporter in a territory in the center of Israel (Hashfela). I loved my work, loved to meet people and their stories and learned to develop an ear and an eye while keeping strict rules of objectivity.

When I was chief editor of a daily news program on cable TV (Gevanim) I added to my experience managing a big team, managing a budget, recruiting new reporters, photographers, editors and training them. Also we were creating new TV programs.

But when my son was born this all changed.

I realized how stressful this environment is and how not healthy, for myself or my baby. It started a long process of changing the way I live.

Paros Island, with its clean simple way of life, the presence of nature and all its beauty, has been our home for all these years, and for this I am forever grateful.

I am committed to protect the nature and local culture as I know, from experience, how vital they are in contributing to a healthy, sustainable, balanced life style.

As a trained astrologer I offer “Consideration of Time” personal chart readings and enjoy helping people see and understand their patterns and life lessons.

In my blog Meditation Muse I share occasionally some of my insight: www.meditationmuse.com

We would love to have your feedback!
