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 the 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 boasts 30 rooms/tents, a 300 square meter ceremonial hall and another 100 square meter workshop center. These days Moa is owned by the Method & Wisdom organization, which follows Buddhist teachings and even has multiple monks and students permanently residing in Moa. The site is strictly vegetarian/vegan, allowing no alcohol or motorized vehicles on the premises. The drive from TLV to Moa is 2.5-3 hours long, and includes the famous Sodom-Arava downhill roads. All meals served in the retreat are prepared by a chef and a baker who will work in silence with a team of volunteers practicing meditation along with us.
