Born and raised in Vitoria da Conquista, Brazil, Shimon discovered Kabbalah in 2000 when ‘The Power of Kabbalah’ was presented on a television program he was watching. He felt compelled to learn more, and found that the direct and unlimited way Kabbalah explains the secrets of the universe was exactly what he had always been looking for. Delving into the study of Kabbalah, Shimon got more and more involved with the Centre, leading him to begin working at Student Support in 2010. In 2016, he became a full-time teacher.
Shimon is a researcher of human psychology and quantum physics; he believes Kabbalah is the science of the 21st century and that it contains the answers to all of humanity's questions. He is a sincere and practical teacher who loves to give personal examples of how to apply Kabbalah to one’s life. He particularly enjoys helping his students transform their imperfections into strengths and is always excited to teach about the Zohar.
Shimon credits Kabbalah with helping him out of a victim mentality and finding his inner power. He believes this wisdom is the key to a new and improved reality for humanity and is dedicated to helping others transform and improve their lives. He currently lives and teaches in São Paulo, Brazil.
