Yonatan sustains spaces of sacred poetry in which a frequency of deep prayer can be felt since the early days of the scene when he was part of “Accompanied Angels” (along with Elad-Nsikh and Nitsen Mizrahi together with Zvika Gurevich) who had a regular monthly cycle in the “PELE TLV”.
Yonatan Meir’s circles are characterized by the silence between the songs, a sacred atmosphere and the seriousness with which Yonatan Meir treats every word in every song he sings.
Yonatan Meir writes about himself:
I started my way in the world of poetry circles in the town of Kalil in 2011 when I was first exposed to a circle at Satyam and Meli’s.
In this circle I was first exposed to poetry as a prayer without a religious context and it deeply touched my Hebrew roots and illuminated them with peace.
The poetry circles I convene are called prayer poetry, because for me the way to pray, to express the voice and emotion is very possible through poetry.
I also conduct healing sound sessions for individuals and couples at my home, or for groups in the studio or wherever you invite me to.
