Welcome to Soul CenteredWe are Ariela and Baruch HaLevi, Co-Founders of Soul Centered, and a couple who is passionate about reimagining the Afternoon of Life.
Our mission is to empower our clients and community in consciously creating new goals, proactively designing new rules and practically implementing new tools, as they uncover their innate healing wisdom, discover deeper meaning at their crossroads, and realize a greater life purpose in ways that are only possible during the Afternoon of Life.
What does it mean to OM Your Power?
OM Your Power encapsulates the Soul Centered platform for new goals, rules, and tools in the Afternoon of Life.
OM is the universal healing sound, often associated with meditation. It embodies a commitment to living intentionally, and a resolve to make the shift from a self-centered to soul-centered journey — a journey in realizing our authentic self and true power in the Afternoon of Life.
The butterfly is an ancient, mystical symbol of the soul and the metamorphosis we all are invited to make as we unleash our radiant colors and learn to soar in the Afternoon of Life.
Together, Ariela (The Healer) and Baruch (The Guide) will support you as, like the butterfly, you shed what has been in order to realize what could be.
Through their unique, holistic approach, you will step fully across the threshold of midlife with the support and tools you need to OM Your Power in the Afternoon of Life!
Why we created Soul Centered
Soul Centered was created to provide a place for anyone seeking to consciously face the crossroads of midlife and courageously journey through the Afternoon of Life.
For over twenty years we dreamed of building a spiritual center where people could engage in self discovery and soul exploration, uncovering deeper meaning within their struggles, realize their true purpose in this life, and experience holistic healing through all of life’s traumas and tragedies.
This dream has been motivated by professional passions, as well as personal desires.
All of our life we have longed for a spiritual home based on universal truths, drawing upon all wisdom traditions, incorporating spiritual practice, informed by intellect, infused with holistic healing and filled by people seeking conscious community, desiring to support one another on their journey.
Although we built variations of this throughout our careers, and discovered pieces of this in places ranging from synagogues and churches to yoga studios and zen centers, from counseling and healing centers to new age communities across the world, we never fully realized what we were looking for…
So, we founded Soul Centered.
Hi. I’m Ariela, your Healer through the Afternoon of Life.
We all need healing, particularly when we come to midlife and onwards; I certainly did.
As a child, there was a hole inside of me, a missing piece that made me feel hollow and unworthy. A rupture in my family only enhanced this unworthiness, and I spent years pretending, lost, and vacant inside.
As I got older, I learned to cover up my inner insecurities with my outer successes, building a beautiful life, marrying my soulmate, raising four amazing children, supporting, guiding and leading large groups of people to spirituality, soul purpose, and embodiment.
But I felt like a fraud. I was terrified that one day, someone would pull back the curtains and see my inner truth: I was obsessed with my health, had body dysmorphia, and felt a huge gaping hole inside that led me to believe that I was unworthy of true happiness, deep intimacy, and love for myself.
My limiting beliefs spanned lifetimes, gathered from my childhood experiences, ancestral legacies passed down, and rooted itself inside my body and mind. I believed there was no way out, and someone would eventually uncover my truth.
I now know that what I was missing was my soul. I was missing Spirit. I was missing the knowing that I was a divine soul and worthy of love. What I intuited since childhood, was this small, still deep inner voice inside of me, that needed to come alive. This was my soul, my divine feminine wisdom that didn’t know how to truly live in this physical body I was given.
As I approached midlife, I began to struggle physically with auto-immune issues and numerous other complications following my fourth pregnancy. My physical struggles only escalated with the terminal diagnosis of my mother, and ultimately being crushed by the grief of her death. This was my midlife awakening.
By opening myself to the wisdom of my soul, the beauty of intuition, and the all-encompassing power of love changed me. I stepped into my destiny as a healer and embraced my potential beyond the confines of the mainstream.
Discovering radical self-love, self-acceptance, and unlocking the flow between your heart and body is the true path to fulfillment, joy, and purpose.
The potential is already inside of you. You just need to awaken it. And I can help you with that!
Hi. I’m Baruch, your Guide through the Afternoon of Life.
For nearly twenty years I have been guiding people through all of life’s crossroads, or what I call “Life’s T’s”:
In my experience, Life’s T’s are not pitfalls to be avoided, but opportunities to be embraced. Why? Because they provide us pathways into discovering our authentic self, uncovering our true purpose, and living a life of meaning and truth in ways we never could realize without them.
For me, this isn’t simply professional, but deeply personal, too. When I was in my early thirties my beloved father followed in his mother’s footsteps and took his own life. Then, in my mid-forties, I experienced what some would call a midlife crisis: a crisis of profession, direction, and faith.
Although both of these crises were long, painful battles, through a combination of spiritual practice, self-exploration, ancient wisdom text study and guidance by trusted professionals, I found myself emerging clearer and stronger. I became a better man, a better husband, a better father, a better guide, and a better expression of all I have been called to be.
It is from this place of extensive experience and deep passion and compassion, combined with Logotherapy (meaning-centered psychotherapy), Grief Counseling, Spiritual Direction, intuitive listening and practical coaching tools, including the Enneagram (which I’m a certified teacher and passionate practitioner), I guide people facing Life’s T’s, to discover their authentic self, uncover their true purpose, and live a life of meaning and truth.
While we might not experience many of Life’s T’s in the first half of our life, by the time we are into the Afternoon of Life, they have a way of finding us, time and again. When they arrive, we need to make time to face them, create space to enter them, and find a guide to help us navigate the way.
I would be honored to meet you at the crossroads of your life and be your guide. Together, we will find your way through, as you finally and fully meet the True You!
