WOMP
The WOMP Program
Working Meditation Program

WOMP is a unique invitation to experience meditation, work as service, personal growth, and communal living. As an essential part of the Ashram community, our WOMP volunteers become part of our family. Come join us, learn more about yourself, make new friends and meet people from all over the world.

Please note: Due to the current restrictions due to COVID-19, the WOMP is currently not being offered. For more information, feel free to contact us. We continue to monitor the situation closely and hope to open the program back as soon it is safe and responsible to do so. 
Imagine living in a beautiful, quiet place, far away from the noise and stress of modern life.

Imagine having space to show up without any expectations or stories of who you were or need to be.

Imagine having the time to invest in yourself and let go.

Imagine taking part in a deep and meaningful process of self-reflection that'll change the way you perceive yourself and others, the way you work, relate, and communicate. 

Imagine that you can implement these changes in your daily life, changes you wanted to make for a long time. 

Imagine being in an environment that encourages you to show up exactly as you are, coming out of your shell and being more you. 

You’re imagining WOMP. 

What is the WOMP program? 

As a member of WOMP, you will spend at least 10 unforgettable days sharing in the Ashram's community life. Our Ashram staff and your WOMP guide will support you in your personal growth process. Most of all, you will become a part of our passionate, playful and inclusive family, and our communal process towards living with more awareness. 

The program includes: 

- Working with us for 6 hours each day (Saturday is also a working day here) to help hold and grow this beautiful space. Every day can look different, with various work tasks such as cleaning, cutting vegetables, gardening, and outdoor maintenance work. 

- Taking part in 2 daily meditations, morning and evening, led by our experienced staff. The meditations range from Osho active meditations, to yoga, to silent sitting and everything in between. 

- Attending sharing circles, access to a trained WOMP guide, and a chance to get to know special people from around the world. Not to mention - free time to explore the beautiful, endless desert.

While we all love a good desert get-away, the WOMP is not intended to be a vacation - in our eyes, it's way better! It’s true that you will have your own free time during your day, and it's also true that your process here is the main focus. At the same time your schedule will be quite full with work, meditation and socializing. Also, the deep self-journey can bring up a whole spectrum of emotions, both blissful and challenging. The Ashram lifestyle has its way of helping you to look within, encouraging a process of healing and self-realization, and supplying plenty of encounters and experiences for your growth and learning.

This program is an Israeli version of the original work and meditation program created by Osho at his Ashram in Pune, India.

Keeping Your Body And Belly Satisfied

During your stay, you will be sharing a dormitory room with your WOMP friends. The rooms are equipped with showers, toilets, AC and sheets. The talented Ashram kitchen staff lovingly provide 3 tasty and hearty vegetarian meals a day (vegans, don’t you worry - we’ve got you covered too). For the grazers in the group, fresh fruit and hot drinks are available all day in the dining room.

Don’t speak Hebrew? No problem!

The Ashram is an international community, and we welcome people of all nationalities. All meditations and community meetings are conducted in English.

Program Length

The minimal participation time at the WOMP is 10 consecutive days. The first 3 days of the program are "trial days", where you can decide if the program is right for you. If for some reason you/the Ashram decides it is accurate for you to leave the program during these 3 days, you will be charged for the nights you have been with us for the pricing of a regular Ashram guest. After this time, there will be no refunds for the program.

The maximum participation time in the program is 2 months. 

The program is active most days of the year, and when it is, you can begin on any date that works best for you.
