Silent Retreat – Vipassana
Neot Smadar, Israel

With Sandia Bar-Kama and Odelia Weinberg Perry

15-18.11.23 Wednesday to Saturday

Practicing Vipassana allows you to deal with the dynamic flow of life with a peaceful mind and an open heart. Join us for a silence retreat under the dedicated leadership of Sandia Bar-Kama and Odelia Weinberg, insightful teachers. Four days of practice and introspection, of stopping, releasing and renewing in nature and in a unique place. In the silence and stillness of the desert, under a starry sky, in inner and outer silence.

Kibbutz Naut Samdar, located in the southern Negev, was established with the intention of creating a learning community where questions about the state of man in the world will be examined in practice through relationships, action and observation. The community is tested every day in the common life and joint activities of the kibbutz members and volunteers. The workshop complex is located near the kibbutz in a secluded and quiet area overlooking the spectacular Adom Mountains. Registration opens at the beginning of July
