Vitality
Art works

of Ittai Altshuler

The Bud of the Stone

A soft stone am I,

Beauty concealed

In its hollows that are home this day but naught on the morrow.

In its nothingness

Beautiful it is in the absent running river.

Man is a bud of a flower

His desire a river.

From: I'll offer you a forest

About Ittai

I am an artist – a painter and a poet. My art helped me to cure myself of shell shock (PTSD) which began during the First Lebanon War (1982).On the bases of my positive experience I developed The Altshuler Method. Altshuler Method is a self help way to reconnect to the Vital Element which redrew as result of traumatic events.

I am a father of two amazing children – Bar and Ron.
I am a husband to just as an amazing wife— Sima.
