"Itzhak Beery is not a shaman with gimmicks. He is not a man of color. He doesn't come from the jungles of the Amazon or any native reserve. But he comes with the power of honesty, with the beauty of simplicity and the wisdom of truth. He is a great teacher, who knows his work and gives it in such a clear way that makes everyone around him happy and enthusiastic. In individual healing process his work is very powerful and his inner eyes are open with great clarity and love. He is neither the first nor the last Shaman that comes to teach at Hamakom Community, but he is definitely one of those who made us feel – "we want to learn more with this man" – and we will do so with a lot of joy."
Dear Itzhak, Thank you for speaking at our interfaith seminary last Saturday. Our students and faculty enjoyed your informative talk about Shamanism and the spiritual journey. -Rev. Dr. Kathleen T. Regan, Dean - All Faiths Seminary International
"...I do believe our work together and your teachings has changed the course of my life. It is hard to put into words, but I know the changes are to be solid and lasting. I lost so much fear and came into clarity and purpose in a new and deeper way. That curse from my mother feels gone and instead I have confidence. I hadn’t realized that I am hearing messages constantly and seeing things, but I am learning a new way of focusing and being present. My clients see it right away in my spirit, and they are open to the ways of healing that we shared. I am “seeing” how to use the many things you shared and it is going well. I also understand the teaching part and that I am called to it. So I am teaching EVERYBODY now, lol! I do teach a lot of therapists individually and in groups, but now, look out!" -E.K - The Sacred Earth Foundation, Colorado
"2 weeks ago this moment, we were introducing ourselves in the teepee and raising our hands for more Rape' and tea (Itzhak says us women folk always go for more, lol). This whole experience was life changing for me, not simply the weekend experience, but continues on in so many ways now: one in the new, sacred life long relationships that have formed in my life - Divine, blessings. Profoundly healing for me...And Itzhak: I wish I could tell you the results of our time/ session from which I left sort of befuddled and frustrated; it took a while ... butt ouch, you were right. What a story to share some day. Perhaps, in August! " -E.R - The Sacred Earth Foundation, Colorado
"It was amazing and mostly beyond words how much I enjoyed last weekend with all of you. Not only did I learn a ton of information, I discovered a new community of really cool healers...Thank you Itzhak for being you and what you bring to share but mostly your healing Spirit and love." -S.T - The Sacred Earth Foundation, Colorado
Hi, dear Itzhak, I am still enjoying the insights from our workshop and will be doing more with you. Your guidance is truly deep and impactful." -L.M - New York Open Center
"Dear Itzhak, I am so grateful our paths crossed at this crucial time in my life and that you began the process of opening the doors of my perception. I am feeling like a new person. Thank you thank you thank you." - JKH. Rythmia Center, Costa Rica
"It was such an honor having the Soul Mending class with you & learning so much from you.
Your workshop showed us the importance of a healing journey is to accept yourself and others. While we try to initiate contact with the divine spirit or God, we must be aware of initiating contact with ourselves. Your generosity and compassion fully showed in the workshop. You very generous and kindly shared your knowledge and the techniques with us during the class time. I greatly appreciate your work and you inspire me in my own practice!' - N.M -New York Open Center
"This was the best experience I had in my long practice of shamanism: alive, joyful, deep, unconventional and meaningful. Monique and Itzhak have wonderfully complementary natures as they bring diverse perspectives to the same essential subject matter. They guided me with wisdom and love towards myself. The humor and personal stories they offer make them a delight to learn from and work with. They are encouraging of everyone’s experience and development."
- M.B - Kripalu Center's seminar participant
"Itzhak Beery let our group in an exploration that combined, remarkably, the most poetic flights of imagination with the most personal encounters with our deeper selves. The talk with which he began the session made us all feel safe while at the same time opening us up to new ways of receiving our experience. His gentle manner, supportive style, and most of all his powerful connection to the techniques of shamanism made this workshop a time of genuine learning and real transformation. I cannot imagine a group of people--students, artists, teachers--who would not enjoy and value this work." - Una Chaudhuri - Professor of English and Drama - New York University
"Your presence here was very significant for all of us. A happy face of generosity you brought with you and that is so precious thing theses days. Thanks for giving us so much of yourself and from your heart. You opened new places to look and the possibilities to see them from a place of ecstasy and collaboration. Your support was very meaningful for me, it made me think that things are possible again. My heart and the hearts of all our community are always open to you." - A.M - Istanbul. Turkey
"The class was very deep and to the point, which is rare with these type of classes. I feel you did not leave anything out. I have had a healing with South American Shaman years ago that was very similar. I feel I have all the tools to move forward and time being my ultimate challenge for practice. Hope to see you again at the Friday circles. Thank you and my heart is happy." - G.G - New York City
"This is the only class at the Open Center where there's alcohol, cigarettes, and chocolate-- all in the name of Shamanism," - Mishel Ixchel - New York City
.בשבילי לעשות את הסדנה היה מאמץ כספי. מאמץ שהפך למתנה נפלאה לעצמי".
מעבר לאנשים המדהימים שפגשתי, הבנתי דרכך ששמאן לא צריך את כל ה"הו הא" מסביב – הוא פשוט אדם עם נפש של נתינה אין סופית למען הקהילה, נפש שבראש וראשונה צריכה לרצות לתת.
הסדנה כסדנה הייתה מעשירה, נכונה, מובנית נכון ומתפתחת בהדרגה...מאפשרת לימוד אינטנסיבי והפנמה של כל מה שנלמד.
לא הייתי משנה כלום! יש לך את היכולת להוביל, להכיל, לראות, להבין את הצרכים...מלא כריזמה בשקט .הנפלא שלך. חוש הומור וחיוכים שחשובים מאד, ובעיקר גיליתי אדם נפלא ואנושי לגבי - אשתמש במה שלמדתי עבור אחרים. חיית העוצמה מלווה אותי ומה שהתווסף זה הזאב - אתמול הייתה לבנה מלאה - לבנת הזאב !תודה רבה לך על הכל ,אשמח לבוא ללמידות נוספות כשתגיע לארץ ,באהבה רבה - סיגל סלטון
... הסדנא פתחה לי ערוצים פנימיים,שלא היו בשימוש. נראה לאן זה יוביל . אשמח לפגוש אותך בעתיד בריא וחיוני - באהבה, נילי
"Yes ... it really was a good seminar and a special group. Maybe because we all worked not only with our own totem animal, but also with one common animal, the powerful special condor, I felt that the group really was very united ... like a tribe. I liked very much working with one specific animal you gave us, bound to this specific period, and I also could go deeply in the work, because you gave us information about its habits, qualities and ecological behavior." - Adriana Bax - I Tre santi, Tuscany, Italy
“The Condor seminar was excellent with much joy and love....It allowed me to increase the confidence in my vision.... I felt your love, your presence, your humility and your generosity to transmit the teachings." - J. T. - Florence, Italy
"I want to Thank you from the Bottom of my heart for everything!! it was amazing!!!"- R.P. Amsterdam, Netherlands
"This Condor seminar was my dream, a dream to build with you. I wanted to fly high with the Condor, I did indeed I made beautiful journeys since then every day." - K.R. Florence, Italy
“Finding and living your life purpose is the single most important thing you can ever do.” -Richard Unger
"Thank you, Itzhak, for a satisfying and nourishing class. It was very supportive. I very much enjoyed this class, your approach, and the camaraderie and trust. I had just come off a difficult departure from a woman's group and was feeling somewhat isolated and disconnected and this class helped me to open up again." - B.H -New York Open Center
