About Desert Ashram
Furthermore, we try to be environmentally friendly (eco-tourism), separating the trash and making compost, natural mud construction and more.
The various activities in the Ashram include: meditation, yoga, breathing sessions, laughter yoga, Psychodrama, Contact Dancing, Tantra, Primal Feelings, bioenergy, dancing, singing, writing, arts, Vipassana, martial arts, Tai Chi, Qigong, Chakra work and many more.
The Desert Ashram is a place like no other, and offers a wide range of accommodation including camping, shared dorms, private rooms (both single and double), and log cabins which hold 4 people. It’s a great place to base yourself to explore the region, to join a meditation session, or simply to relax alongside the Desert Ashram pool.
All guests at the Desert Ashram receive three meals a day from the vegetarian kitchen and are welcome to join the optional daily meditations. The Desert Ashram has a swimming pool as well as beautiful lawns and gardens which are perfect for relaxing in. The camp ground has showers and toilets as well as two group rooms. Private rooms and cabins feature en-suite bathrooms. All rooms are air conditioned.
The Desert Ashram is located at the meeting point between the Arava and Southern Negev regions, on the Hayun Plane, about one hours drive north of Eilat, and forty-five minutes south of Mitze Ramon and the Ramon Crater in what is probably the most remote region in Israel. If you want to truly get away from it, then this is the place. The Desert Ashram arranges regular OSHO meditations, yoga, and other spiritually inspired events throughout the year, as well as festivals and workshops, which draw people from across Israel and beyond.
Desert Ashram is built on the ruins of an historical military settlement called Shittim. Some of the people you might ask along the way will have never heard of 'Desert Ashram', but will know where 'Shittim' is.
