Wandering Jews: Former Tucsonans thrive in new locales
September 15, 2011
Mark Naseck, holistic healing teacher and new immigrant to Israel, celebrates Simchat Torah in Tzfat, Israel, on Oct. 1, 2010.
Mark Naseck is an internationally known lecturer, practitioner and teacher in the holistic healing arts.
How long did you live here? How often do you return to Tucson? Do you still have family or friends here?
I lived in the Tucson area for 13 years, in the Tucson Mountains on the west side, on the east side near Sabino Canyon, Patagonia and Bisbee. In Patagonia I was connected with the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center and the work of Dr. Gabriel Cousens. Later I worked at Canyon Ranch as a yoga, meditation and chi gong instructor. I created the famed “Shamanic Journey” service that is still thriving and facilitated an experiential lecture, “Energy ConnectionTM,” giving guests an understanding of how holistic/alternative / energy-based therapies work based on the science of quantum physics. I also taught yoga and meditation intensives at Miraval Resort and Spa as well as a one on one private healing experience called “NamasssageTM.” I left Tucson in February 2010 to make aliyah to Israel. I have not been back to Tucson since making the move to Israel. I have many friends in Tucson.
What was your favorite thing about Tucson? What have you missed most about living here?
My favorite thing about Tucson is the weather. Having grown up in Boston where there is snow and many gray sky days, Tucson’s sunshine was very attractive to me. More important, it was in Tucson that I began to connect deeply to my Jewish roots. In 2005, I met Rabbi Michael Shapiro, a teacher and musician from Scottsdale who frequently spoke in Tucson. He inspired me to deepen my studies in Israel. Via the web I found Shalom Rav Yeshiva in Tzfat. I then visited Tucson’s Israel Center and Moshe Babel-Pour, the shaliach, suggested I take a two-week pilot trip to Israel.
I went home and booked a flight. When I boarded the plane I was pleasantly surprised, shocked actually, to find Moshe Babel-Pour on the same flight. The plane arrived in Israel at night. As we passed a Tel Aviv skyscraper with Hebrew letters I said to myself, “I’m home.” And then I thought, “Home? You’ve never been here before!” In Israel I visited Bnei Brak, the Dead Sea, Jerusalem and Tzfat. I knew Tzfat was where I wanted to be. It is is a very charming, quaint, romantic, spiritually charged place. Ancient Judaism and Kabbalah have deep roots in Tzfat. On that trip, I decided I was going to make aliyah. Six hours later I received an e-mail from my landlord telling me he was going to sell the house I was living in and that I needed to move. What instant confirmation of my decision!
Friends and family ask if I miss all I left behind on the other side of the puddle. I miss my friends and family more than anything. But I am so happy to be in Israel and to experience a whole new world that satisfies me on a very deep soul level that is quite hard to put into words.
What big changes have occurred in your life since you left Tucson?
The biggest change is living in a new culture with a new language. I told my friends back home that many times I felt like a helpless baby. For the first six months, I needed help doing everything, even the most basic things like calling the phone company.
How were you involved in the Tucson Jewish community? What did you learn or experience in Tucson that has most affected you in your present life?
I attended services at Chabad on River, classes and retreats with Rabbi Michael Shapiro and his Scottsdale Torah Institute and served on the board of directors of Rabbi Miles Krassen’s organization Rain of Blessings while he was living in Tucson. My good friend Tsipi Goeta-Kreisler is the person who connected me with these amazing people and institutions. She and I met at a conference on spirituality and consciousness in downtown Tucson in 2004.
I always had a love/hate relationship with Tucson. I was guided to go there in 1996 after working on a film set in Los Angeles, where I was a raw food chef for a director. After the film shoot, I went to San Diego where I had a dream about a wave that destroyed houses on the beach, but the dream also included many people seeking me to teach them about making wheatgrass juice and sprouts. I had always been concerned about earthquakes in California. When I woke up the next morning, I went to a metaphysical bookstore and looked at a map that was supposed to show what the land would look like after an earthquake. Tucson was on the other side of the San Andreas fault and would be the new San Diego. Two days later I was in Tucson. The first year I lived there every day I would ask myself, “Why are you here? Why did you (God) want me here?” I preferred places like the Caribbean or Hawaii, with the rain forest’s lush, in-your-face beauty. Eventually, I began to find the subtle beauty in the desert and as I reflected on my outer experience I began to see a reflection in my inner experience. The place inside that I didn’t think beautiful or worth loving slowly became lovable and worthy of my attention. Tucson is the home of the world famous Gem and Mineral Show, my favorite event in Tucson — and, like a rough raw gem that needs to be cut and polished in a rock tumbler, Tucson transformed me. My soul has been polished and its sparkle restored!
When I made aliyah, I arrived on May 3, 2010, which was Lag B’Omer and the celebration of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the man who is attributed with saving the Jewish faith and writing the Zohar, the ancient text from which Kabbalah is derived. When I look out my office window or sit on my porch I gaze right at his memorial where thousands come every year on Lag B’Omer to pray and receive blessings from his soul.

***A Lunar Eclipse occurs on December 10, 2011.***
About the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on December 10, 2011
As noted above, a Lunar eclipse is an especially potent lunation — in this case a potent Full Moon. Lunar eclipses are relationship-oriented. The “crisis” that these eclipses tend to elicit is a crisis of lack–a time when we suddenly realize a great need or want. The impact of the crisis can act to sever a relationship–it’s possible. But it can also bring two people together with a sudden awareness of a great need for each other. Although Lunar eclipses are more relationship-oriented than Solar eclipses, they are not always about relationships between two people. They can trigger awareness of need in other areas of our lives, such as our relationship to work, to our health and bodies, and so forth. This is a time when matters come to light–things that have been brewing under the surface.
When a Full Moon occurs, we can suddenly burst forth with proclamations and outpours that seem fresh and new, simply because they are not yet rationalized. A Lunar eclipse is a more potent Full Moon, and its effects tend to last longer. Many astrologers believe that the effects of a Lunar eclipse last approximately three to six months.
The Lunar eclipse on December 10th, 2011, occurs when the Moon is at approximately 18 degrees of Gemini, opposing the Sun at 18 degrees Sagittarius, and is a Total Lunar Eclipse.
Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and polarities. With the Gemini-Sagittarius axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives concerning the balance between Gemini-ruled and Sagittarius ruled areas of life. The Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind”. A Gemini Moon encourages us to think logically, while Sagittarius persuades us to think in a broader manner. Sagittarius symbolizes the quest for meaning and ideas that expand upon the here and now. Gemini is quite comfortable in his or her immediate environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius stimulates us to venture beyond. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Lunar Eclipse invites us to do. This eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the coming weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the eclipse invites us to do.
Some sort of crisis (which can be a crisis of consciousness) or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts. Relationships may be challenged, broken, or strengthened dramatically at this time. Our discovery is emotionally charged and dramatic. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into positive action, although there can be some level of chaos initially.
This eclipse is part of a series of eclipses that fall along the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. It can be viewed as one of many cosmic pushes regarding the themes it will be stimulating.
Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Look to 18 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius in your own chart (allow at least a 5 degree orb when examining the planets and points it aspects). This Lunar Eclipse gives us a cosmic push to make needed changes in our lives. The areas of life activated by the eclipse may see dramatic turns, after which the path is clear to move forward. Note that whatever happens at this time is nothing truly new. The issues have been brewing inside of us, and emotions have been building. Something comes to light at the time of the Lunar Eclipse, and if we get in touch with our emotions, we can get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go.
This Lunar Eclipse in Gemini is bound to thrust us into a state of heightened awareness of flaws in the structures of our lives, particularly in our communications and transportation. Decisions made now are emotionally-driven.
This Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon square Mars and when Uranus is stationary, so that the need to take action feels urgent. Actions may tend to be erratic or hasty.
In December 1965, December 1973, and December 1992, a Lunar Eclipse fell in Gemini at a similar degree as this December 2011 eclipse. It might be helpful to think back to issues in your life that were in effect at those times (in the weeks and even months surrounding these dates) in order to get an idea of how this 2011 Lunar Eclipse might affect you.
If this Lunar eclipse conjuncts a planet in your chart, you may feel its intensity more than others. If the Lunar Eclipse conjuncts your Sun, for example, it can act like a charge of energy. The desire –or necessity– to turn over a new leaf is strong. A significant other or the public can play a large role in the events of your life now. In major aspect to the Moon, a Lunar Eclipse can trigger major changes to your living situation and personal life, including personal relationships. Circumstances that significantly change your daily routine and domestic world can arise. (from https://cafeastrology.com/lunationseclipses.html#lunareclipsedec2011)
