Desert AshramWelcome to the Desert Ashram
In midst the wild desert is the Desert Ashram. A place for meditation, silence and peace. The ashram is a spiritual center for festivals and spiritual and therapy workshops that take place every weekend. The place is operated by the members of an amazing commune of desert people and Osho meditators. Come and learn about the place, about our live in program, the Working Meditation Program or WOMP.

DescriptionDear loved ones come celebrate with us the big Zorba celebration, come dive with us into the depth of the Buddha. This is the place to breathe, open, hug, dance, inhale the energy of the desert, and fall in love with life. Osho talks about the man who lives in the illusion that the materialism stands opposed to spirituality, that the Zorba contradicts the Buddha. We are at the festival to prove this wrong. We prove that they strengthen on another, that the combination between the two makes a whole person – Zorba the Buddha. There is no such festival in Israel, period. The idea of the festival is based on the philosophy of Osho (Puna, India), teaching that the whole person is the one who knows how to celebrate life to the fullest, knowing how to enjoy life (the Zorba), and equally investigate the meaning of life, aware of himself, with meditation as an integral part of his life (the Buddha). The Zorba the Buddha Festival is the full name. We at Desert Ashram created a festival from this philosophy. Five days of music, love, and meditation. The Zorba festival is unique in Israel for being held right where the desert meets the oasis of the ashram. Unique for its quality of workshops and activities that are distributed across 15 different areas (worlds) which allows you, the participants to meet the leading teachers and leaders of spirituality from Israel and abroad. Starting with Osho meditation world, through the Yoga and Therapy Worlds, to the Movement and Theater Worlds and more, you will meet depth and happiness with opening the heart and hugs. The Zorba festival invites you to a quality experience of love, meditation, joy of life, and meeting all beautiful people like you. We at the Desert Ashram invite you to our home, to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to fly over life and enter a world that is full of joy and awareness. Dance yourself senseless at the movement world, drink coffee in the colorful Chai Shop, make a conversation to that cute guy that you met in the deep breathing session, indulge yourself with a massage in the treatments area, go deep into meditation in the Osho world, meet beautiful people, hug intimately, go crazy in an amazing show, empower yourself in high quality workshops, be amazed by the open desert, release all control in a joyful party, connect to yourself in a therapy session, FURGANIZE yourself with a homemade cake, stretch in the Yoga World, rest in front of the beauty that surrounds you, release hold on reality, be happy in a world that is a festival of a very special meeting-- the depth of the Buddha and the joy of the Zorba.
