...In 1979, upon recommendation from his professor, Dr. Banai moved to South Africa to join the surgical unit in Wits University, Johannesburg. Becoming disillusioned with the Newtonian approach of the medical field – dealing with patients’ physical symptoms but not with the person as a holistic entity – he abandoned the medical field in 1984 and started his own set of personal transformation workshops (Turning Point™, Joyspring™, The Mile™) under the umbrella of Insight Training Centre (ITC).
By that time Dr Banai had chosen to permanently settle in South Africa and he became a South African citizen. In addition to his medical degree, in 1997, Dr. Banai has attained an Honours degree in psychology from UNISA.
In accordance with the pivotal aim of guiding and encouraging people from all walks of life to discover who they are authentically, their unique purpose in life and the world-altering road of their contributing vision, Dr. Banai’s Mission Statement is: creating an environment in which trust, love, loyalty, respect, sensitivity, kindness, courage, humour and wisdom exist, where the individual is empowered, risking, free to choose, focused on what is important and experiencing his/her magnificence.
Envisaging the above, Dr. Banai’s Vision is encapsulated in the words and actions dedicated towards…elevating the level of Consciousness of Humanity through fundamental Personal Transformation of the individual, in order to make our world conducive for children to get born into. It is Dr Banai’s firm conviction that the only effective solution to the many current problems of the world – wars, starvation, poverty, crime, sexual abuse, broken families – resides in our ability to raise the level of consciousness of each person on the planet, and by that to raise the global level of consciousness of entire humanity.
