  • Description

    Description

    We have been an incubator for processes on the intersection of Community, Art & Social Change.
    For more than 10 years we are experimenting with creative communal processes and personal development around the subjects of Art, Permaculture, Peace Work, Spiritual Work, and transformational events.

    This place started (and still is in part) as a horse ranch more than 20 years ago by Yakov Avraham and was named after my late grandfather David whose life work was to reconcile Germany & Israel after WW2.
    10 years ago we created here the Local version of the Burning Man event, Art collectives used to call this place home and even babies were born from some of the connections that were made here.

    Today after experimenting with this place as a Tantra center we are shifting back again to focus on Art, Culture, Peace Work & all of that with the mindset of regenerative attitude and permaculture principles.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There's a bus station with line 44 that goes to the train station nearby.
    we're in the middle of the country so most places are a maximum of 1 hour away from all the major cities, and were located in nature in an agricultural place with plenty of trails and fruit trees.
    it's still the middle east and not Switzerland so nature is nice but not breathtaking =P
