''The dormant power of women together is the untapped resource needed by humanity and by the planet''. --- Jean Shinoda Bolan
''Pain that is not transformed, is transmitted''. --- Richard Rohr
'Together Beyond Words' is a non-profit organization created in 2003 by a group of nine Arab and Jewish women who gathered to form an organization that engages in empowering women, reducing prejudice and promoting peace - building in Israel.
Together we have developed a multi-disciplinary approach that includes movement, body work and deep listening designed to create deep connections while transforming pain and trauma. This method is called 'Beyond Words' and works quickly in breaking down barriers and building trust.
In our workshops Arab and Jewish women experience the ‘Beyond Words' approach together. This experience enables them to see that beyond all differences of culture, tradition, religion and even nationality there is so much more they share as women, mothers and wives.
Once they become aware of similarities between them and learn to understand, respect and appreciate their differences, they can bring their unique skills and work together to create a change.
In a society where prejudices and conflicts between Arabs and Jews have lasted for so many years, there is an extraordinary power when women on both sides can work together to build a common future.
