In 2012 he was reported by the most popular newspaper of Israel "Yediot-Ahronot" as one of the ten leading spiritual teachers of the country.
Ohad is the author of seven books, one of them is a revolutionary research on the sacred aspect of Lilith – the wild-dark feminine force, which holds the secrets of healing human sexuality. Another book is a revealing investigation in the erotic concepts behind the ancient Temple of Jerusalem and how to use erotic sacred knowledge as a shamanic track to the divine.
Ohad was heading "Neviah – the Hebraic Academy of Universal Spirit", and togather with Dawn Cherie is the founder of "KabaLove - The School of Love and Kabbala" – Kabalove ©.
A major part of his work is to reestablish the Temple Arts of the Kadesh and the Kdesha, the priests and priestesses that were working in the ancient temples of Astarte and Ssherah. His new book is a novel called "Kdesha" that is dedicated to that matter (to be published in 2016).

Artist, wild child, Essex girl, tantrika, sexual shaman, poet, and mother, Ellie Wilde has been exploring the field of Tantra and Conscious Sexuality personally for the last 20 years and professionally for the last 7.
A Certified Sexological Bodyworker and Somatic Sex Coach she has trained with the Institute of Somatic Sexology, and is deeply influenced too by the late women’s sexuality teacher Shakti Malan. Ellie also has extensive training and is faculty with the International School of Temple Arts (ISTA).
Based in New Zealand she teaches a range of trainings and workshops both nationally and internationally for men, women, and couples. She has a particular passion for supporting people to find a more feminine expression of their sexual essence, something she feels is missing from mainstream sexuality.
Ellie brings a depth of realness, and authenticity into her facilitation, and it is her personal story through trauma to empowerment that passionately inspires her to support others in their quest for liberation.
“I create spaces and places for people to explore, desire, fantasy, pleasure, intimacy, authenticity, being real, and much more. I help people come home to themselves, let go of baggage, and societal roles, demands, and conditioning. Some people have called what I do re-wilding...I think its just simply giving people the space to be who they are once they let go of who they are not.”
