“I see a time of Seven Generations of all the colors of mankind, gathered under the sacred Tree of Life, and the whole earth will become One circle again.” Crazy Horse
Gaza Lighthouse, near kibbutz Be’eri, Israël
While we live in a time of turmoil, crisis and transformation we are in need of a new vision that transcends duality. We experience duality both in our personal lives, our relationships and the world around us. We need awareness, reflection and insight to transcend this duality. This proces of healing works on different levels: healing yourself means healing the land, and vice versa. The key to our survival is compassion and a heart- connection to become one human family, one human race. We can only do this together, bringing in all the pieces of the puzzle. By seeing the bigger picture you will get insight and understanding about your own life. It will be an experience that will be nourishing, challenging and fullfiling.
The Healing Conference works with a format called Open Space. It is a journey of exploration of the soul, for which there are no techniques, fixed structures or guidelines. That’s why it is not a workshop: we are co-creating the program on the spot. There are five simple rules:
- Whoever is there are the right people
- Whatever happens is the right thing to happen
- When it starts, it starts
- When it is over, it is over
- Follow the Law of Two Feet
- Expect the Unexpected
The Healing Conference wil take place on the border of Gaza, where the sense of duality is strongly felt. Next to an old brittish Sulphurfactory, Rami Harovi, an inhabitant of Kibbutz Be’eri, holds a space of healing, connecting to his childhood neighbours in Gaza. In this specific place we will perceive how the patterns of duality in the Gazastrip and in Israël echo the patterns in our own lives. As inside, so outside.

Fifteen years ago a group of people started a healing process in the deepest place on earth, in the oldest city of the world: Jericho. They tapped into the ancient wisdom of the Essenes, who were masters in healing, using sound, crystals, prayer and water to perform rituals of healing. This year the Healing Conference will travel the world. While it started in the valley of the Dead Sea, it will now take place in several places on earth. The first station is on the border of Gaza, near kibbutz Be’eri, at a place in nature called Gaza Lighthouse. Each place has its own challenges and collective story that we will explore to give us insight and understanding.
