Yael Berkovich

Born and raised in Kibbutz Nir David, formerly Yael Zinberg, Yael still lives on the Kibbutz today. She completed high school at the regional school, and continued to physiotherapy studies and worked at the Emek hospital in Afula. In 1992, Yael studied Chinese medicine, and since then works with people combining eastern and western methods balancing body and soul. Later, Yael studied Feng Shui and in 2011 began drawing mandalas at the senior citizens center “Gil Oz” and went on to study how to teach drawing mandalas at Eitan Kedmi. She has been drawing mandalas since, conducting workshops and meetings related to mandalas.

Married to Moshe, Yael has 3 children and 9 grandchildren, enjoys gardening, and loves flowers. She dreams of giving everyone an opportunity to connect to color drawing and shapes through mandalas in order to create pleasure, balance, tranquility, happiness and health. A dream came true last month when her mandalas were exhibited at the local Kimaron hall. Relating to a verse in Psalms: “Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
