Retreat into love
If big crowds are not your style, the Desert Ashram’s series of love-themed retreats and workshops may catch your fancy. The Ashram, a spiritual and therapeutic center run by a “commune of desert dwellers and Osho meditators,” will host several events throughout August with amorous topics such as “Presence and Eros: A Transformative Weekend of Knowing the Body Wisdom” from August 17 to 19, and “From Fear to Love – Going beyond Sexual Conditioning” from August 22 to 26. All events are to be held at the Ashram, south of Mitzpe Ramon. Tickets for events vary widely according to length and accommodation options and early-bird prices are available. For more information and reservations, see www.desertashram.co.il/. Fires, meat consumption and pets are prohibited.
