  • Description


    We are a young community of almost 100 adults and children living together in a new village in the Negev desert. Our vision is one of togetherness and love in a spirit of sustainability and spirituality.

    In August 2013 we built an eco village on Mount Eldad in the Negev, with the intention of living a meaningful life close to nature under the open sky. The village on Mount Eldad did not last because of problems with the authorities, but one year later, we were finally living together, legally, in harmony, in Tzochar, Eshkol. Here we can fulfill our dream of building a unique community, to serve the people we live among and to share the wisdom of our hearts.

    Our volunteering program is highly recommended for those who are truly interested in the unique spiritual ways and atmosphere of the community, and for those who want to gain something special for their personal development and spiritual path.

    As a participator you will receive 10 hours of spiritual activities every week:
    self-discovery and awareness classes, art and creativity classes, group meditations and spiritual philosophy. Apart from that you will practice "Awareness in action" every day.

    For the possibility for the volunteers to get to know us, and we the volunteers, the minimum stay is for 1 week.

    Our world is waiting for you!

    When turning to us, please write your email address since we use emails for further contact.
    Malin will be answering your emails.
