shalom salam!



in all the threads posted so far there has never been an all-israeli spinning thread. so i'm happy to be the first to post it biggrin



my name is oren and at the time of writing these lines i'm not in israel but in melburne - australia.

i went traveling about 4 months ago, and it's a poi learning trip for me. so far i've been in thailand for a month and spent about 2 weeks in pai with some great poi spinners from all over the world. after thailand i went to new zealand and was busking (street performing) for 3 months with some succses. i came to melbourne a week ago and i'm trying to get to as many fire spinning meetings as i can.



i started spinning poi, like many other of us israeli's, whan i was in thailand on august 2003 when i went traveling after finishing the army. i've been spinning ever since and it did me a lot of good.



israel is a small country but is full of very special people, many of them did some poi while travelling but stopped after coming back home.

there are some amazing spinners of international level and some good fire / drumming gatherings during summer in tel aviv.

but since it's such a small country we should be able to start a real community that will meet regularly and provide people with some knowledge about where to find other spinners to practice with.



as for now, a good friend called gal baran is organizing big fire meetings. gal has a list of over 140 fire spinners that receive updates about interesting fire events, some of which are soon to come:))

you are more than welcome to write gal and leave your details so the he can let you know when something interesting is happening.

gal's e-mail:



galgal_esh@yahoo.com



home of poi is an Internet site that is about westerner poi spinning mostly. there are very very few Muslim spinners registered for example. i would like to see some Muslim spinners in Israel and I'd like them to come to the gatherings and to invite me to the ones that they have.



I'll be checking on this thread every time i can now and I'll do my best to keep it alive long enough so it will start being a vivid connection between all Israeli spinners of poi, staff or every other thing you have in mind.



see you!



orenico.

hi everyone, Ron asked me to email Scott with names of good poi/staff spinners.
i think we should get someone who's really good at both, so i need some suggestions for someone to get as a guest.
right now the only one i can think of who's really good at both staff and poi is Rob (bluecat). any other suggestions?

Hi Orenico my man, poi boy Leah and all the other I don't know,
Hope everyone good. The one day only I was at the IJC was good(worked at Yechiham festival) but for sure need to stay there the all 5 days to get into it.
As Poi Boy said, fire gathering is soon but the date is the 18/5/07 and not the 15/5/07. Hope you all like the photos from the second gathering. Leah & Poi Boy, will you be there? How about you Orenico? When do you think to come over? Come on, it's not realy fun to travel for long time with such a freedom to choose where you want to go/do/see/feel/meet... is it???!!!
Israel is calling you...
See you latter,
Gal Gal Esh.

Smile to the fire, and the fire will smile back!!!

Sorry Poi Boy, some photos that wasn't good I didn't put. At least I can say that our photographers had great photos and they are getting better from time to time so from this gathering we'll get even better photos.

Smile to the fire, and the fire will smile back!!!

i'd just like to say that few day's ago i learned how to do a fish tale with a staff:)))

Yep, the 3 gathering was the best, at least for me. Very good people with a very good energy. Good spinners, good drummers, good crowd, good singers, good weather, good beach == amazing evening!!!
It could be perfect but it was one guy missing, Orenico, but we hope to see him maybe at the next fire gathering.
See you on fire,
Gal Gal Esh.

Smile to the fire, and the fire will smile back!!!
