Going to the Dead Sea Beach

Almog is overlooking the Dead Sea. It’s about 15min drive to the nearest beach. It’s way too far to walk while fasting. We will go once on a group trip with a tour bus to the beach & Qumran caves.

If you want to go to the beach privately during retreat you can:
a. Get a ride with other participants. There are usually many cars in the group.
b. Arrange a taxi from reception.
We recommend these beaches:

Biankini / Neve Midbar Beach
15min drive. Entry fee to the beach is 28-40₪. It’s about 140 Shekel / $38 / €35 for a taxi of 4 people. roundtrip.
Book 1hr prior with reception.

7 full juice-fasting days with daily activities to choose from. See details below.

Day 9: Coming off the Fast & Departure
Break-fast, Important closing talks, Lunch & Departure.
It’s important to come off the fast in the right way, so you will have a safe and pleasant return to everyday activity with minimal difficulty. Nearly all people can return to work on the day after.

During the fast:

• The workshop is a relaxed, joyful process with space for silence, music, nature & meditation. The daily schedule offers various activities to choose from and yet leaves space for slowing-down and being in nature. Resting greatly supports the rejuvenation process.
• Your attendance is only required for the daily morning Check-in talks with Dr. Cousens from 8:00-9:30, and the opening & closing talks on Day 1 & 9.
• As a retreat workshop, you are requested to stay within the village area all days. Leaving the area in anyway requires the Dr.’s and workshop organizer approval, and is at your own responsibility. Driving a car while fasting requires Dr.’s permission and is limited to 15 min.
• Language: The workshop is led in Hebrew with translation to English, and designed for the international audience. Two of the talks will have group translation to Hebrew.

Daily activities are from 7 am to 9:30 pm with plenty of time to rest in between
