Rare Disease Day

Documentary Short Film Premier A Mother & Son Journey of Healing created by Yamina Salomon & Dorita Behar

28 | 2022
1:00 pm EST time

On the International Rare Disease Day, February 28th, 2022, we are thankful and excited to share our event and premiering our short documentary film: “Mother & Son healing Story: Life Is How You Tell Your Story”, directed by the film maker Dorita Behar and produced by Yamina Salomon. Our mission is to bring more awareness to the challenges that one faces when born with a rare life-threatening condition, and how the tolls of Storia-Map Visualization Meditations, Self-awareness, Integrated Yoga, Bhrigu Yoga, Ayurveda, Guarire and Fine-Art may bring light and come to the aid of oneself to live a full life and to support the process of healing.

When Yamina Salomon’s son, Arieldavid, was diagnosed pre-birth with a life-threatening condition later identified as the exceedingly rare Haddad Syndrome, her doctor’s first response was to terminate the pregnancy. Her response? “I want my son to live … He’s God’s present, and I’m not giving him back.” She promised her son that he would live a full life, and she kept her word. Now 16, Arieldavid is a happy, funny, yoga teacher. Her book, LIFE IS HOW YOU TELL YOUR STORY, shares her and Arieldavid’s story, including the creation of her own alternative, holistic approach to healing called the “Storia Map.” In this interview, Yamina shares a message of hope with readers, especially other parents of chronically ill children.

Life Is How You Tell Your Story – is not just a slogan, it’s a way of life

“In our darkest moments is when we truly meet our true essence which is pure light, God’s spark. We can then reach our true values of life derived from unconditional Love. This is what I experienced while spending many months in the intensive care unit by my son’s bedside from the moment he was born as he was ventilated from birth. As I had no idea how I could help my son to heal, I turned to the only thing I did know for sure, my faith in God that he would show me the way and creativity to find solutions. ‘Storia’ is a creative path that gives structure to actions that lead to the story I truly want to live.”
