My birth name is Ron ; My spiritual name is Narayan Jyoti,
My dad calls me Ron, My mom, Narayan.. I answer to both names...
I am a Yoga practitioner, Musician, healer and teacher of Yoga and ThetaHealing meditation techniques. I collaborate with a wide variety of organizations and individuals through music, healing, and practices from ancient spiritual traditions.
I am a certified ThetaHealing Certificate of Science since the creation of the certificates in 2009. The co-creator of ThetaHealing The Body Sings: A course in the art of the Heart Song and creator of Rise online mindfulness programs.
The basis of my upbringing is on the foundations of a traditional yoga path. My Guru (Heart teacher) Swami Vishnu Devananda gave me the name: Narayan Jyoti, 'light of the world's keeper'. In Yogic tradition, the meaning of the name is the spiritual aspiration and the direction to which one is going. As a child, I had an exposure to great teachers from different spiritual paths. Many of them are masters in their field. The Yoga of devotion and the Yoga of Service are my leading practices. Since early age until today I lead chanting of Mantras to spiritual communities around the world.
At the age of 14 and for the next two years, I set up my residence with my mother in www.Sivanandabahamas.org
. At the age of 19, I received a formal certificate as a Yoga teacher. After a short service in the Israeli Army, I completed a higher education degree in an acting studio. I went back into the field of spiritual awakening while studying with my teacher of ThetaHealing Vianna Stibal (www.thetahealing.com
) and with my Yoga Acharya (Spiritual preceptor) Swami Swaroopananda, Director of www.sivanandabahamas.org
I studied closely with Vianna Stibal, founder of Theta Healing. I teach many people in Israel and around the world. Many of them are instructors of ThetaHealing themselves. I also hosted international events with Vianna Stibal being the key presenter numerous times in Israel and the Bahamas and assisted and translated in Instructors trainings for over a decade.
In recent years, I have been focusing on teaching "The Body Sings" ThetaHealingⓇ elective class course, a joint work for me and my brother Noam Paz under the support of Vianna Stibal, which focuses on the Heart Song(™) technique from the Theta Healing books. It is an opportunity in which Noam and I share with groups and individuals that we meet the gift of sound within the world of emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Another focus to this day is teaching the advanced practitioner classes in ThetaHealing. My life Partner Gilad and I also collaborate in each other work, him being a practitioner and teacher of breathing techniques as well as being a healer and an artist.
