    We are just outside Jerusalem, with so much to see and do! You can stay there cheaply before and after the Forum, and even take trips to the Dead Sea, Tel Aviv's beautiful beaches, and Israel's other treasures. At the Forum you'll interact with both local and international friends all interested in learning and living a holistic way of life. You'll learn a lot and be with nice people.

  • Help


    We need drivers to transport guests in a short ride to and from the conference site. This requires an international driver’s license–we’ll supply the car if you can't. It’s an easy drive that gives you lots of opportunity to meet our guests.

    Cooking assistants work alongside our executive chef, assist in the kitchen and and keep the area clean. It includes dish and pot washing. This is a pleasant position with personal interface. Basic English skills are enough.

    We need technical help with computers and internet, and general maintenance help for arranging classrooms and trouble shooting small issues as they arise. If you are a geek, we need you!

    Do you have a speciality in natural health that you would like to teach? This is also a possibility. As a presenter, you are welcome to advertise and sell your products as a vendor or sponsor.
