Pashut Festival Desert Ashram
Pashut Festival
Surrender to the Moment
Four days - May 17 - 20, 2018
Desert Ashram is excited to invite you to Israel’s traditional naturist festival. A four day journey in the spectacular Negev desert. We invite you to simply BE. Being naked and beautiful, letting go of layers of fear and shame. Being nude and simple, just as we are. Pashut Festival is calling us to live life totally and joyfully.
Imagine for a moment that you are in the Garden of Eden
Before eating the Forbidden Fruit.
What is it like? What is the experience? How does it feel in your body? In your heart? What do you hear? What do you feel? What do you sense?
Imagine that you have reached the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, and now you are given a chance to fast forward the tape into the future.
You are shown the world of today
The opinions, the judgements, the shame, the guilt, the noise.
What is it like to live with masks, what is it like to disconnect from Nature, from ourselves and from each other?
You are shown what it's like to live with the knowledge in which the evil is intertwined with the good,
When there is an inner judge that won’t stay quiet for a second.
You are explained that the warning “For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” is perhaps referring to the death of Innocence.
Once you choose knowledge, you will give up the innocence, the unbiased openness, the unmediated experience.
And what will you be giving up your innocence for?
For shame, guilt, criticism, judgements, fear and hiding.
You will need to put clothes on because you will be ashamed, like you have something to hide.
Clothes to cover she shame.
You will venture further and further away from yourself, cover yourself with more and more layers, trying to hide who you think you are, for when you will give up your innocence, you will forget who you are – you will forget the wondrous, primordial, beautiful, full-of-light creature that you are.

Imagine yourself standing at the crossroads,
Taking it all in.
What will you choose?
Will you still go down that path?
Or will you let all that go and keep the innocence?

Imagine the experience of pure innocence, the simple nudity.
There is no inner voice telling you that something is wrong or ugly or needs hiding,
No inner voice telling you that you’re a sinner, or flawed, or should be something you’re not.
There are no masks, no concealment.
No evil.
There is a silence
A pure, full presence in the moment
In eternity itself.


We are simply inviting you to a heaven on Earth.
To experience yourself, the others and life itself as if for the first time, naked and simple
Like children, free to play the wondrous and limitless game of life.
Pashut – Heaven on Earth will take place here at the Ashram on 17-20/5/2018,
May it never end;
Our intention is to give you an experience that will stay with you in the dressed world.
Even after you put your clothes back on, the essence of naked innocence will remain.

A heaven that begins in the here and now.

At the base of this paradise is harmony – a space for each individual to manifest their own heaven on Earth, in unity with that of others and the environment. At Pashut festival we honor ourselves, the others and mother Earth.

The desert paradise is opening its gates to whoever seeks to experience this kind of freedom.

You think you won’t dare to be naked?
Are you frightened by the thought of shedding your clothes in a public setting?
First of all, remember – nudity is a right and not an obligation, to each his/her own pace.
If you are interested and curious – and intuitively you want to come – show up with your fear, and watch how the safe space allows you to remove the inner blockages first, and if and when the time is right, also the external ones.

Are you afraid of possible natural reactions your body may experience?
Come to make peace with it. In a safe and respectful space.
This is an opportunity to remember that we are all human beings, we all go through similar experiences, and we can leave the fear and shame outside and just be.

“We should accept nudity. We are born naked and remain naked even behind our clothes. Nudity is simple and natural; there is an aura of innocence about it. There should be no harshness about it. And it is possible only if we accept nudity as natural. Without accepting nudity as natural, you cannot accept clothes as natural.”
