Moa Oasis was founded in an attempt to create an institute for a culture of peace; peace between man and his surroundings, man and his friends, families, peoples, cultures and his inner self. Moa is located in the Arava desert, between Tzofar and Tzukim, right along the Israel national trail and the Incense and Spice route. Moa stretches over 60 dunams and includes an orchard, a lake and an extraordinary view of the desert’s majesty. Moa is owned by the Method & Wisdom organization, which follows Buddhist teachings and has multiple monks and students permanently residing in Moa. The site is strictly vegetarian/vegan, allows no alcohol or motorized vehicles on the premises, and boasts 30 rooms/tents and a 300-square meter ceremonial hall. The drive from Tel Aviv to Moa is 2.5-3 hours long and includes the famous Sodom-Arava downhill roads. A list of participating instructors will be published a month before the workshop.

Transportation on a private bus will be available to and from the workshop in Moa, for the price of 200 ILS round trip. The bus will leave from Tel Aviv Savidor Center train station at 11:00 on Thursday, and on Saturday the return trip from Moa will arrive at the same place at 18:00. If you plan to stay in Tel Aviv after the workshop, you are welcome to continue your Gaga journey by registering for classes at the Suzanne Dellal Centre.
