Ephraim Jeffrey Geltman

TO A SHADKIN
yes your aunt is very nice!
you don't have to tell all the girls right away but i'm Na Nach
(as you can see on jeffreygeltman.com)
yeah i'm friendly with Amichai
Tekoa seems like a good idea tho...
can we work the Tekoa connections somehow?
is there a woman out there who is open
LOVES Rebbe Nachman's Torahs
woudn't be totally allergic to the best in NaNach?
050 7109 740
so the funny little phrases we use like 'for crying out loud' are unfamiliar...
it's just a saying that means, 'please don't be difficult'
i wish you had called with this note
because i have made shabbas plans
in terms of dating
the reason i have been trying to get you to write
is to determine if i want to date!!
as i wrote today
i'm reticent to step into anything that i have to shlep around for
unless it has the vibe of being something that can 'go the distance'
if we are going to try this
what is realistic is if we're both ECSTATIC to bring in the best help TOGETHER
and i know i am
if you are around in Jtown or the Gush
you are always welcomed to CALL ME UP to meet up
on the fly
that sort of thing
easy going meet up
but if we are going to 'do it the right way'
and make sure before you call that i'm not seeing anyone else
and plan a meeting
and date for real and all that jazz
then like i said
i need to feel the vibe that we are starting something that we are going to finish
to the best of our ability
with any help possible
and only quit if it's truly not workable
and to me just about everything is workable
when both people are ecstatic to bring in all the best help!
i can help you 'get in that vibe' to want to cooperate
or like i keep saying
connect you to other people who can prolly help too
but then again
i don't have time to even do that
unless you really want to get into it.
so i think i am back to asking you to express
yourself in writing
you can cc me with someone else if that helps!
i could still change my mind about shabbat
or work it out so you can stay with a family _________where i'm going
but i need to feel the vibe that you want to try to cooperate.
this is the first thing!
and without it
i hesitate to do anything
does this sound ok? too harsh?
every man and women
has a measure of-
for lack of better word-
to deal with in themselves
when they enter a relationship
and throughout the relationship.
from my 10,000 + hours of self treatment and clinical treatment in refua tivit
and in Torah soul quest Ummon etc...
i have seen that i'm able to handle just about any woman's insanity
and that i'm able to let her heal mine too
but like i said
most of the women i'm meeting have not worked through their past traumas etc...enough
to even give me a chance to help them heal their insanities
as seems to happen naturally in a true love.
nor do the women seem open to putting up with my craziness
while they help balance it out over time.
i am not scared of any woman's insanities if she is really ready to love.
but it's a bit of a catch 22 because if she has too many insanities then she is not able to let me in.
i am sure i have plenty of insanities that would get worked out naturally in a real love.
i am very much looking forward to finding someone to help heal me too.
the word insanity and craziness is not to be taken TOO literally.
just to be clear
i don't' at all
think that go betweens
and this sort of thing are at all necessary
for a man and woman that are truly looking to trust each other
and work through all their doubt
through patient talk and meditation and such
but i have found that almost every woman i'm meeting
is so traumatized from what has happened up until now...
i do feel it's prolly right for us to have someone in from the beginning
or maybe even before the beginning
who is willing to help us try to work things through to the end
if there is no REAL reason not too work towards marriage
like i said i am not hesitant about working through things that come up
as i said
i just don't want to get into anything with a woman does not feel the same way
or who doesn't have a friend to help work things through with
i'd like to be in touch with any of these helpful people...
do you have contacts for any of them
esp cell phones
and i'm not all that bad!
that even if i was larger than now
i think she would still have a hard time of just seeing me for who i am
and that most of these shidduchs
need a whole lot of support just to stay in the game and try.
if i'm wrong about it and you are in fact looking to meet me and
really see for yourself
from the bottom of your heart and soul
if i am the real deal for you
then we can think about skippng all this red tape
and just meet simply and openly...
did you check out the northwest USA hip hop scene...?
some serious stuff happening...
this letter likely will not work
unless you read to the beat in that song over and over.
that's the prescription.
if you can find any music that works the same without that bad language
let me know please!
there is Wisdom in the Nations.
that we might have to access unless or until we find it on our turf.
please spread this letter far and wide.
you don't have to worry about embarrassing me.
i think the deal is that
i need to find a woman who is going to put up with the minimal amount of my crazy search for truth, and self, and serving and saving the world
(and let me tell you the minimum is likely to max out most any gal.)
and in fair exchange i'm going to give her the most chilld out space imaginable to have her faults in full comic glory
and love her singularly
with everything working itself out at a natural pace
because if she really is up for puting up with my quest and mission
the stuff that is between us having the deeper and deeper love
will get worked out naturally in a sort of record time
without my going to work directly on our relationship at all
what i'm connecting to
i have more and more confidence
will wash out enough annoying stuff in the love 'tween my wife and i
like when the sun rises
the darkness goes away by itself.
even tho i want to experience/create the deepest love between my woman and i
at the speed of life and love and light
i can let things happen more naturally
as long as she will let me enough space, time, flow, and support to connect inside and outside
to the irresistable sunlight i am finding more and more.
so what we are saying i suppose is to find a woman funky and flexy enough to roll with my improvisations and explorations
and attractive enough inside and out to keep me focused on her to the exclusion of the 'sirens'.
a real hip hop na nach true search real love
everything inside the halachic rules.
not one step outside the Shulcan Aruch.
yes that's the one caveat that cuts out most of the 'funky' females:
the whole game from start to finish in the grave (G-d forbid)
has to work to go one hunnerd per cent within the fence of a real life Posek.
even someone like Rav Riskin or maybe probably Rav Cherlow.
anyone as long as they are in the real normative enough Torah game.
respected enough by enough of Klal Yisrael.
NOT a mashpia...NOT a too controversial 'alternative' rabbi...
just a pshat Halachic guide.
i want the maximum guidance in the love to come from within us in the deepest stillest meditations
and i don't need us to try to hold on the high level overnight...
i am talking over a lifetime.
at the right pace.
the woman has got to realize that halacha can be romantic beyond belief
in the right context.
but yeah not us slave to some Rebbe-Master. nothing like that.
just our whole crazy journey set to go within the fence of real deal Shulcan Aruch.
the real Poseks are smooth operators
and they make the 'class' fun.
i need the halachic protection cuz what the journey of my marriage look like might work
could be something creative and free like the frum world doesn't see often.
she should not have to worry.
i have the work ethic.
i grew up suburban.
i know 'daddy has to bring home the soy bacon'.
i got mad skillz to pay the billz.
and i know how to hustle up work when there is none.
and stoop low to make things work.
but in terms of my big picture.
most people need a month around me until they even have a clue what i'm cooking with.
artist ahead of his time in some ways.
but anyone in on my game can talk to many of my people in town here.
i'm solid like Kryptonite.
i'm just a brother from another planet.
so looks like i need a girl who wants to go for a ride that might be crazy sometimes.
crazy but at the end of the day safer than this soulless uncreative #*@& people usually demand.
yeah so that's the rap.
no rest for the weary...
no rest for the weary.
please save us the hassle.
call me 24-6 with any deepthought needed here.
050 7109 740
but after long careful investigation i feel the following needs to be taken into account, even peripherally:
Sussya esp Sinai Tor's chevre,
American NaNach Tsfat,
Simcha Chochbaum who you can find every day by the Kossel,
Dovid Zeller book,
Gil Locks Coming Back To Earth book,
the Blue Scholars listen to it all 100 times,
just about everything in Bat Ayin to the depth,
Rav Bezanson's NaNach scene up in Tel Aviv,
Rav Dovid Fink has video link on my website,
my website every word to the root,
enough of these refs,
rebbetzin have mercy for me
i spend hours working this letter out
and it flops with you that fast.
with all due respect
Blue Scholar has updated thing in hip hop a bit since Old Skoolp hop
tho that is interesting that you went to school with ___________
speaking of which do you know of this frum rapper Y Love?
he really is brilliant.
yet another part of the puzzle.
i want Rebbetzin i can write who will help answer my prayerz.
to the best of her ability.
which could include broadcasting my prayers.
to those more likely to help answer them
with a live woman.
who likes me.
ps- similary i tried to get the ex-jazz musician Rebbetzin we all know
to listen to Daniel Zamir.
if and when i succeed in this i am sure something good will come out of it!
ok i'm gonna switch our plan to a maybe sort of thing as I'm down in the styx (Sussya) and don't want to schlep in
for something unless is sounds like the start of the real deal...
when you say you are just 'exploring' it sound ominous!
i do bless your truest explorations
but i am looking for someone who is open to finding that i am her treasure
please forgive me if that's too direct a thing to say!
although i must be honest...
for many people to understand what i'm up to seems like it would be a miracle...
i want a woman whose choice of a go between is someone i could be eager to work with
anyhow yes about the age difference...
people keep guessing i'm like 20...
but yeah maybe there is a warrior woman more my age who wants to save the worlds with me
although i don't mind a 'lil sister'
tho i had some episodes that took away most if not all of the 'romance' of chasing after younger women
if someone young is really really into me...fine for me
ps- look how trippy this nyc frum arts scene is:
yes i'm ready to come meet you today
but the one thing is that i just want to make sure that you are really truly looking to get married
i hope it's ok to say...?!
i don't mean to try to rush you into anything but it just got me a little worried when you said that maybe we were too different from america and israel and like you were maybe ready to call it quits when we made a mistake witih the email (?!)
distances with language can certainly be overcome when both people try over time and maybe the most important communication isn't even spoken just communicated in other ways
with trying to get married i'm not worried to work things out and working things through... i'm really into it!
some people obviously had a past that makes them too distrustful of something working out now.
i want a simple tzniut hipppie woman ideally
who lives in israel now
who is ready for adventure and saving the world
who isn't scared of the Power of my Crew
who loves the holsitic stuff the real deep holistic stuff not the cheeze
who wants me to learn a lot of Torah
who believes in me
or at least wants to!
yes thanks so much for your help and like i said the angle that i imagine could work is an english speaking women connected with Yishuv Hadaat...
i know some of the people that run the place but they seem a bit overwhelmed with the influx up there to think about shidduchim
but yes a woman maybe early thirties who was dati but then opened up in to earthy Breslov
or some of the women with the Erez Moshe Deron crowd too...i registered with Lev Hadvarim and can get in touch with them if you ever wanted to make use of that connectcion...
also the Ohr Haganuz scene is a good sort of connectdion for me too as they are very deep into alternative medicine which is my whole life career jeffreygeltman.com
and most girls i meet seem too uninformed about this field and i have yet to inspire enough curiousity and therefore they can't grasp what i'm after or even very resistant!
not that they have to grasp what i'm after...but i'm pretty enthususiastic and cutting edge and i think if they are uninformed, not curious or resistent than it's a little shot from the start...
maybe even better is if you have ideas for some shadkins who are more in my realm of operation
please do feel free to call at any hour...finding my basherte is the #1 priority!
if the girl is israeli maybe someone with american parents is a good sort of thing if possible...
the last 'category' that seems closer is the girls connected to breslov and alternative medicine in Tel Aviv...
they have their feet on the ground and are very contemporary
yes some woman connected to agriculture and such could be something incredible too...like i said i had a lot to do with this sort of thing in the past...
i don't need my wife to submit to me
but i think i probably need a wife who isn't afraid of shining the brightest light on our life
and seeing what is revealed
nothing too shadowy!
i petition you
to take any steps of anyway humanly possible through whatever venues imaginable
to help me connect with my soul-mate
for a check-mate
or to help make me a better candidate
in any way humanly possible
thanks thanks thanks
On my end, my business is coming along well.
A lot of my own inner work via the shidduchs is becoming more clear.
I am finding chavruta that I am truly enthusiastic to learn with. etc...
thanks so much for any thought!!!
I think it's like music:
shidduchim in the 'old school' orthodox world is 'supposed' to basically be this Classical sort of thing...
which can be great
but I like all genres...including Punk
and I don't need a girl to 'go through her punk stuff' before she meets me...
i'm not the kind of guy who needs any sort of show.
i mean i love shows. but i don't need a girl to put on some smiley face for me.
i like to see her real face...no matter how much is going on there.
but i don't demand the real face.
i love shows.
but i can see through them, and enjoy them as a show.
i can see pretty darned deep into people and i'm not scared of the stuff i see.
i am just learning the patience and skill of how to deal with it best.
i certainly don't need male dominance or anything of the sort
just moving over time towards the most simple deep true love
don't get me wrong:
if a woman is more tuned into enough of the good things than me then i would love her lead...
the first thing i think..
is that we have to have in our mind that there is someone out there who
when all is said and done
we would actually prefer giving up our control with,
giving up our overcontrol of our own life and being eager to flow with them
or even let them lead
see, i think you have to know in your heart that there IS some man out there
who you would actually rather say,
'look i'd rather get back to you in a few days but if it's important to you then let's talk now'
and i guess hopefully he says,
'look i'd rather talk now, but if it's important to you then let's talk in a few days'
and then both of your hearts swell because you realize that you actually would PREFER to work on finding ways that you BOTH are happy with
now the question is,
if i am so smart and suave
why am i still unmarried?!
i want to start at some deep and high level and i think maybe either i'm too idealistic, or....
anyhow for instance i go to ____________ and my future wife doesn't have to be ok with the brilliant clarity of the light he shines on things
but if she is the type who can't even take the light in
then i doubt it can work
i don't need my wife to submit to me
i don't need my wife to submit to __________
but i think i probably need a wife who isn't afraid of shining the brightest light on our life
and seeing what is revealed
not something shadowy and dark...
Ye Old Shidduchim Profile for Ephraim Geltman
This is my 'dream shidduch'
a not-thin and healthy,
cooperative (or open to learning how to be, )
chardalish american settler (or speaks a little english)
open to 'old school' na nach breslov,
and alternative medicine,
31 or 32 is a good age
I am thirty-eight years old.
People usually guess a whole lot younger.
Frum about eight years.
Grew up in the Boston area.
Made Aliyah and have lived in Israel about two and a half years.
Went to Ummon for my second time this Rosh Hashanna.
I ask Shylas a lot from Rav Dovid Fink, and have what to do with Rav Steinsaltz.
I'm a tough mix to peg:
I love the good Rebbes and all that, but I'm also a real freethinker indepedent type.
I love the whole Nachlaot Shlomo Chevre, tho I side a little more frum on things in general.
Connecting to chevre in Kriat Arba, Sussya, and Chevron.
Like that wild rugged south energy,
and found the Breslov Yeshiva I like the most up above Itamar in the Shomron.
Connecting to Rav Bezanson's Breslov in Tel Aviv,
and to Na Nach in Tsfat (don't believe all the hype: a lot of good is happening up there!).
Please don't think about Na Nach in the wrong light: the 'real' Na Nach is very pure and clean and straight and right.
I'm likely far more aware of the problems in Na Nach, and far more involved in trying help things shift towards the good.
Lived a lot on farms back in America
and my real ideal is very simple life and intensive work in my holistic field.
Please do not let my ideal trick you:
if you have something enough 'in the ballpark' let's hear about it!
I can send copies of letters I have all about my shidduchim process so you can really know what's realistic.
I am not a Cohen nor ever married with no kids and no big surprises.
Live in Efrat where I work with clients privately, in an MD's clinic, and am working with clients in Jerusalem.
Promoting my self healing method that I, and other extremely experienced people in the field see as having a tremendous potential possibly internationally.
Willing to drop it all and consider Ulpan or Torah learning or work some normal job full time for 'the right woman'.
I currently learn daily (solo, chavruta, shiurim).
Would ideally have a marriage where I learn half day or even full-time for a period to 'catch up' as my Torah-education has been lacking.
But as I say I am extremely flexible.
I prefer to run Dor Yesharim numbers as early as possible. 663 623 979 is my number, and anyone is encouraged to run a check on any potential shidduch without asking me first.

lastly i'd also like to see what you think of the thought of rav ginsbergh on 'kaballah for the nations' and 'bnei noach'
sorry about being a jerk before i just went through some huge tikkunim and really worked out some deep stuff
listen i know this girl out in ________ who is jewish secular seeker type and i want to intro her to you
ok be well and i'd love to hear from you
since you are feeling it for Chabad this would be a great guy for you to talk to also
i can help make it happen prolly if you have problems getting to him
also i've been researching about what Rebbe Nachman had to do with the Alter Rebbe
and Rabbeinu seems to make it clear that his was a different path than Chabad right from the beginning
for us all to truly follow Rabbeinu's derech is like some full life job itself
so why get spread out?
ok speaking of which
i still want to see about helping each other
maybe we could find a way that works for both of us...
i take inspiration from shimon who lives out in Ebay Hanachal out by Tekoa and who was m'shamesh the Saba Yisroel (whose biography i can gather you still haven't had the blessing to read?) and shimon is very much alive

geltmanshiatsu 5:27 AM or she has to get it herself?
to a 'friend' trying to 'help' me

look forward to hearing from you
ps- real deal friendship is not easy
your long lost brother
to a young jerusalem seminarian
you are here in a town
where there are PEOPLE FOR YOU TO MEET
and by my acute guestimation i can guess that you have yet to meet many of them
if thee would only meet my people
my o my what could become
you are a smart young woman
but sometimes it's helpful to have it spelled out
if you get in certain circles of people
you are bound NOT to meet my people
it's complex and simple
at the same time...
this jewish rasta kid from vermont met our posse in jerusalem
it was classic
we really blew his mind with rebbe nachman torahs
when we first met him he started trying to quote tanahk to prove his rasta eminence
but my friend who was there learned in yeshiva litvish for like 20 years
put him in his place so firmly and gently
it was really a sort of historic moment
i'm eager for the return of the lost tribes
always like to hear your updates etc...
and i want to know how i can win you to be my enthusiastic shadkin
i can REALLY imagine 'her' coming through your friendship
to the martial arts master healer bisio
I apprenticed to Pitchford for five years (healing with whole foods)
to the ch'an master at city of 10,000 buddhas for a year
know most all of the boston martial arts scene
I have developed and am promoting a self healing style that i feel is both cutting edge and TRULY wholisitc
and i'd love you to know about what i do and have your advice with it
here is a nutshell
and my website is jeffreygeltman.com
pps- many of the kabbalists here in israel seem to be predicting a pretty complete fall of the USA upcoming...
to the famous survivalist Cody Lundin
i teach a self healing system that would be amazing to combine with wilderness skills since it (the system) is all about being alone in the woods and healing yourself on all levels
i'd love to tell you more about it
to the pianist jeremy weinglass
what's up long lost jewish brother
i'm writing you from downtown behind the green line israel
to notify you that america like the weimar republic is likely to crash
or apparently it already has and is just being propped up
like a dead man
and so i want to invite you back to your homeland where you can heal us with your really really beautifuly piano
my contacts below
ps- i teach a sort of 'beyond alexander' total holisitc technique that i'd love to tell you about...
to an american hip hop poet
listen one of 'your people'
a certain jewish connected rasta boy
recently washed up on 'our shore' in Jerusalem
there was quite a degree of misinterpretation
historical, sociological, energetic, and otherwise
i have several jew brothers here in Israel
who went through the WHOLE rasta phase in amerika
and then woke up
to the real deal Torah as brought down by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
i'd like to offer you my hand in brotherhood
to straighten out out this 'christian' influenced rasta movement
we been through it
we came out of it
we welcome you to hop on the Big Bus
cuz we all goin home together
ps- the kabbalists seem to many be warning that amerika is going to fall real time big time disaster time style
just to give you a heads up....
to a newly engaged girl
there is no trepidation on my side
if you two
have a true mutual objective enough friend
of any description
who is giving you the healthiest support
from start to finish!
without this kind of person in on things
then i am delirious with trepidation
but not without reality
ps- some of the kabbalists in israel
are predicting the crash of the USA pretty soon...
to a shadkin
1- thanks for the follow up on these girls but we are definately it sounds like fishing in the wrong pond
maon, sussya, chevron
people directly connected to masters in alternative medicine
serious working artists with a lot of revolutionary personality

i'm probably about to get in a hot new clinic clinic so that's make it much easier
working on getting legit this week etc...
self healing method
why not give it a try?
like i said you can start asking questions if you want to heal this way...
General notes for:
THE METHOD OF SELF HEALTH DEVELOPMENT
This whole method is based upon focusing on the one point in your body that feels most obstructed.
You can focus on it mentally and use your fingertips to help focus on it.
Even if your fingertips aren't on the point you can use them from a distance to connect to the point.
The entire Method should revolve around opening up the one point.
Even if you have a bunch of areas that are a mess, just focus on the central point and everything will connect through it.
THE TWENTY-TWO POINT PROGRAM
2- open jaw
6- use your hands
7- awareness of breath
18- fire up
19- root down
20- think deeper
21- go to nature
22- slow down
The Method I am teaching is something you practice until it becomes natural.
What are we practicing?
We are practicing a way to work on our own health, our own life force, our own life.
Basically, it could be practiced with every breath from here forth.
It is too good to miss any chance to practice.
It's not that we 'should' practice or we should 'feel bad' if we don't practice.
Conversely, it's just a great thing to get into, and when we start
we will likely realize that it is something we do not want to live without!
Now learning the Method is of course best live,
but we work with clientelle via correspondence
(email, IM and snail mai)
as well as telephone consultation.
We include the writings below to give you a sense of the work...
A lot of this method is about SOUND VIBRATION.
When we make sounds we can hear how our sound is incomplete and 'off'.
We can hear what is restricted in our voice, and we can hear where our sound is stuck.
We have to listen to our own expression
and hear what is 'off' and what is incomplete.
It really does not matter
and it is in fact contrary to the Method
to be overly concerned about what others think of our expression.
Of course there is a crucial place for how our expression is received,
but how many people are chained in repression, etc...?
So when we are vocalizing let's
OPEN UP THE JAW!
You can feel all that horrid tension in your jaw,
and that must be worked out in order for the life to flow.
Next, SUSPEND THE TOP OF THE HEAD
as if it's being pulled by a string upwards.
Let all your body
be from the inner center of the body.
Instead of having your body move separately,
we are going to train only to move the very inside of the body
and let the outer limbs follow.
No matter what comes up- and everything will!- keep relaxing through it!
USE YOUR HANDS.
There are limitless self healing techniques using your hands
which we can get into in time.
In general, constantly use your hands to work on your own health!
AWARENESS OF THE BREATH. breathe fully.
Trial and error.
Holding it in. Holding it out. Breathing slower. Deeper. More gently.
More power. More grace.
Make every word, and sound, and song you make with
There is no end to going deeper into the heart.
Part of FEELING is FEELING as in feel the sensation inside yourself.
Feel where you feel blocked and numb and FEEL INSIDE THERE!
You have to 'feel to heal.'
The concept of AUDIENCE
is very different than how you might think of it if you were rehearsing for some performance.
In another way it's the same.
Here just have the idea that you are not overly inwardly focused.
You are working on yourself, but that self is much of the time, in life, going to be in contact with other people.
Your 'performance' is basically the way that you are when you are with other people.
We are training to be 100% real but also 100% subtle.
Move and make sounds in a way that have the most meaning for you.
What does that mean? You have to know for yourself. It changes. Go deeper and deeper.
We'll come back to this and a lot of things.
But in other words, it's against the rules to just 'go through the motions.'
Feel your anatomy. Pay attention to your anatomy.
G-d gave you this miraculous body.
Learn how to use it.
There is always an element of training for your future,
whether you have a vague notion of the future approaching
or a very exact thing you are preparing for.
Be in the moment without getting lost in it.
We all have great battles ahead and are training for them.
Don't be a 'jerk.'
Consciously make all your movement, sounds, etc, exactingly smooth.
You will often have the impulse to break whatever 'flow' you are in.
Resist the urge to be scattered and quit or focus on a less central process.
This Method demands your all but it will become you in time, and you will be glad to have progressed.
Almost everyone needs to be coached in the beginning to 'get in the groove'.
The longer you can practice in one continuous masterful session,
the deeper you will go in.
Let your whole body continually expand.
Everyone lives at various states of pathological contraction, tenseness, etc...
Physically OPEN UP! Stretch! Jump around and stretch your lung capacity!
Lift your head as if the top will touch the ceiling.
your proper breathing by feeling the alignment of your pelvis.
When practicing standing, tuck your tailbone down to point to the ground so that your lower back is flat.
Be loose and relax and drop your weight.
Find your rhythm. You can 'cheat' by using recorded music and working with it.
Our heart and our whole system works with rhythm.
Attention to this will support all the points we are developing.
Feel inside yourself what you are most burningly 'psyched' about.
If you are like most people it is unfortunately very very buried.
Dig it up. Connect to it.
This whole work is to bring your life towards the pure version
of whatever true direction you are most wanting to go.
Drop all your physical weight, your center of gravity, down down down to the center of the earth.
Stand tall and drop all your weight onto your thighs.
Let your upper body dance free and take all your weight on your thighs.
The center of the earth is a long way down, so keep droppin!
Even deeper than the center of the earth is the center of your mind. Think. Think!
The goal here is to express yourself completely, so of course deeper and deeper thought is required.
GO TO NATURE.
Whenever possible practice this method out in nature.
As you are basically rebirthing your world with this method,
the slower you practice, the faster you will create a new way of being in your world.
To go fast, slow down!
This whole method is based on a very healthy dissatisfaction with your present life
You can feel what's off and you are training to get closer and closer to 'where it's at.'
Ok, so you have the general outline of a Method, but now what do you do?
Like with all music, you can either IMPROVISE ie. DO YOUR OWN THING
or PLAY STANDARDS.
We'll focus on IMPROVISATION for now.
However, if you already have something you do like daily prayers or music you play,
or in actuality, anything, then you can obviously work this method into that.
The basic IMPROVISATION you can do in this method is to
speak or sing directly to G-d in your own words or tunes.
If G-d 'isn't your thing', then you can work the Method with another focus.
Don't stress out...we'll get into this all in time.
This method is basically stunningly easy and stunningly difficult.
It's difficult because we are demanding that you demand of yourself your truest expression.
And it's easy because deep down we can all feel how we are off and we inside have the constant desire to work on it in a way we like.
Practice, report back, and we'll see!
Print out this list below to refer to when you want to practice.
2- open jaw
6- use your hands
7- awareness of breath
18- fire up
19- root down
20- think deeper
21- go to nature
22- slow down

Thanks so much!
Yes, I recently had an shadkin interview with a woman from Monsey (I'm 38 and still single!!!), a ___________________.
I can't remember how I came across your facebook, maybe through some of Meriam Roads distant connections on there.
Anyhow, I work in natural health also, and when I come across barren women in my practice it's one of the saddest things!
So I am very excited about progressive work with fertility treatment.
There has been so much ignorance in the Jewish community about 'real' alternative healing, so I am glad someone in the field is opening and waking up _____________.
ps- you might like my site about what I do...not your 'normal' alternative health
love to hear your thoughts if anything is of interest...
TO CHEVRE in NACHLAOT
I want to 'make you a Na Nach' which of course is kind of absurd thing to think or say
yer a cool braw (bro)
as you can see i'm losing it a little
but lookee here bro
me n some bros have a club
where we all committ to one hour hisbod. in nature a day rain or shine
i realize it's hard for a married superstar like you
but look...Rabbeinu wasn't messing around obviously G-d forbid
how bout joining the club
the way we crank it is that if we miss a day we have to pay 50 shekels to the club
or to Tzedakkah
that keeps us on point
it's a Hisbodaduht Coalition
you could say...
i always wanna see you my man
050 7109 740
why is it that ______________ have ended up in Na Nach circles?
it's cuz it can be a breath of fresh air
go meet more the real nanachs....i'll help make it happen if you want
breathe in the Geulah sister
have you really read the history of Breslov?
we were persecuted from the get go
see 'Through Fire and Water' by Kramer
you are somehow just 'buying' the persecution of NaNach at face value
it's just a continuation of the world struggling against the real deal
i have people that will straighten you out and they are all just a phone call or email away
you will come into NaNach like a fish in land flopping around that finally finds the ocean...
To a New SIkh Friend
i used to be a sikh (as i mention on my website jeffreygeltman.com)
interesting stuff but thank G-d I found Rebbe Nachman
sihk of course came from islam and hindu roots if i remember right
and islam of course is connected to Ishmael as described in Torah
and hinduism came from Avraham sending his sons to the east bearing gifts
so thank G-d i came to the source and then found Na Nach
anyhow what's up?!
calling all Jewish Rastas: we just met _______ in Jerusalem
the Torah world that you know about is transforming and in it's place Na Nach Nachma Nachman Me Ummon is rising up!
Please get in touch with us: this will be a reunion maybe like nothing else.
We have some serious 'ex-rastas' in our Jerusalem Clan so you will feel right at home.
your bro in Jerusalem
letter to a famous west coast (non-Jewish) spiritual teacher
i see building going on all the time in palestine,
there is no war at the moment,
and you don't see people dying in the street like in africa,
this is sort of an internal fight here in israel
like a husband and wife
and maybe outsiders really dont' often truly get what is going on
i was muslim for a year in america too
so i have a better idea than most people
also until you come here and see for yourself
i am afraid you are likely a victim of a media blitz
if you are looking for a constructive conversation and really look for the truth and a way to bliss i have a friend here Moshe NaNach who is open to dialogue
we are all in the same boat: looking for truth
if you are able to go outside yourself and weigh another side let's have a dialogue
letter to a holistic pr person
thx so much
if it's ok i'll just fire off my scenario in summary as times zones, shabbat approaching etc... make that easier
after 20 years full time in holistic i moved to israel and feel like all my training and practice in the field is somewhat a joke compared to the real parts of the movement around Rebbe Nachman
(reference nanach.net and nanach.org)
warning: it will likely not make a ton of sense at a glance
however, i'm seeing developing my niche in the holistic world could be a huge gateway to share the deeper 'science' of Rebbe Nachman and Na Nach Nachma Nachman Me Ummon
and i'm a fired up sort of activist who really just wants to see people heal
LASTLY i'm a serious Torah Jew who sees the real future of holisitc being using Torah Law to cut out anything at all unnecessary and obstructive that pervades the holisitc scene
so as you can see i've got a lot on my plate and not sure how to navigate...
well there's a lot more to it
ps- what kind of sliding scale?
letter to a frum sex therapist
So I've worked in holistics for the past 20+ years (website below)
and am frum and breslov
and working on putting it all together in my practice.
in my training before going frum i had a rather extensive training in the mostly eastern influenced sex therapies
so now i'm working to understand how to present all this in terms of halacha, pr, professional savvy, etc etc
i'd love to be in touch with a male frum sex therapist instead or in addition
lastly, the crux of it all for me is that after my career up til now in holistic
(and also my Dad is a famous gestalt therapist in boston)
is that i'm seeing more and more the total importance of Rebbe Nachman's teachings about Shmyrat Habrit in terms of sex therapy etc...
and it seems almost the entire sex therapy world is a bit against this sort of thing
and what i'd really like to find is colleagues that take what Rebbe Nachman taught on all this seriously...and who aren't afraid of the backlash of the modern maskilim against all this.
Ok it's be great to be in touch!
ps- also, if i may say, I'm single and looking for my wife if you want to help!
i changed my tune
the nanachs got to me
i don't want a larger-than-life Mashpia anymore
but i do want all within the posek's fence
but just the most simple pshat halacha
and to follow my 'inner Rebbe'
and only let other Big Rebbes help me to do that
rav fink is great 054 598 9658
if you call and ask him any shyla you'll prolly know within two minutes if you could go with him
video of him on my links on my website too
he's way cool and right.
but i don't need the posek 'in on' anything
just to answer the questions flat and simple what's the law on each matter
now i think the only question i have is if i can work with someone
who isn't working to have their whole life within the fence of a respected posek.
cuz whoever i team with
if they are only willing to posek on stuff that concerns our collaboration
but not in their own life
then it's like i can count on them flunkin when their own life tests come.
i think we could take something real brother
but without the total life posik fence i can't see teaming up too seriously with anyone.
i need to think and research it more
cuz maybe im' holdingg on too tight
maybe it only needs to be for the collaboration
but real man to man the life is the collaboration
my juice is gonna break anything that isn't within the fence o halacha
but like i said i aint gonna pep talk you about that kind of thing like a life posik thing
but if you go that way yourself naturally then i want in.
but i prolly don't want to take a step unless you go that way naturally yourself.
with no turning back.
this cat Rav Cherlow is supposed to be another super mega superstar hipster respecd posik ultra liberal 052 261 0142
but martial diddle doo therapy i aint got much interest unless its going the distance.
and without the fence
how can it go?
without a bro who naturally wants the fence.
to work towards a more n more conscious fence.
i think i might have expended my unsolicited pep talks
and can imagine keeping mytrap shut unless people beg.
and save all the preachin for my art.
but i'm only looking to take steps now that could go the distance.
i think just about the only thing off about (the hip hop group) blue scholar is that they havne't been exposed to Torah yet.
and i'm working on that.
i ask your forgiveness
i think we had a misunderstanding about the health thing.
what i was trying to do- unsucessfully- was field your question in such a way that you could get into thinking about some of the new territory in medicine.
almost everyone in the west 'thinks in western medicine'...
but chinese medicine is now obviously recognized as an alternate- and many feel more advanced- model of understanding whole health
(and now even chinese meds is considered fifty or so years behind the times)
so what i was trying to do was direct your question into new territory, which, if you played along with me, i *really* have no doubt you would find useful and satisfying.
'if you give a (wo)man a fish he eats for a day but if you teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime.'
ps- i talked to one of my consultants today who has a really developed (i think) psychic sense, about you and shidduchim, and if i remember right he said he thinks you are not really 'in the mode' of looking to settle in marriage yet...
please forgive me if that comment is unwelcomed!
