A "Spiritual Journey" in the Judean, Negev and Jordan Deserts with Dr. Phyllis Schlemmer
In a place where the silence is complete and the vistas never-ending, where prayer to the Almighty is natural and spontaneous, journey to your true essence in a barren and unspoilt land. Sense the force of the desert as it awakens your inner self, and the power of creation that demands to be revived.
In this wonderful place we will invite you for 7 days of fascinating experiences.
Phyllis V. Schlemmer (Carmel) is doing a workshop about the book "The Only Planet of Choice" – Phyllis' book has been widely acknowledged as one of the most significant books of our time. Many of those thousands who have already read it, have spoken of the profound effect is has already had on their lives. This book represents the outcome of over twenty years of her work with her colleagues Dr. Andrija Puharich (discover of Uri Geller) and Sir John Whitmore of England, as well as many other distinguished scientists, scholars and theologians.
The Only Planet of Choice is based on the communications transceived through Phyllis' deep-trance work from an enlightened circle of universal beings known as "The Nine". The workshop is about all of this topics, their greatful explanations and complex understandings of god, the universe, living on earth, the connections from everyone to everything and so on. Where is the planet earth now and where to go? A communication with the nine is also in the plan. For details you can take a look in www.theonlyplanetofchoice.com
Phyllis and her Israeli friends, Efrat Sar-Shalom and Seffi Hanegbi, their Peace Center Zman Midbar in the Judean Desert invites you to share in a unique experience in a unique place. Here some of history's greatest leaders rose and fell: our father Abraham, Moses, and Jesus of Nazareth. It was in this same desert that David composed his Psalms of Praise to the Lord, and it was here, too, that the earliest ascetics sought seclusion. The Essenes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and the Zealots all lived in the Judean Desert, and in the spirit of Qumran (Dead Sea Scrolls) can be found the source of "A Course in Miracles".
The object of this journey is to take "time out" from regular life – to reflect, to revitalize, to touch the spirit and to soar to the heights within, and to return home with renewed understanding and a fresh approach.
The journey includes visits to sites holy to Jews and Christians, combined with enriching spiritual processes and texts from "A Course in Miracles" and The Only Planet of Choice and periods of silence, prayer, and meditation. Unique excursions and experiences add flavor to your journey, and vigor to your work.
Our journey to Jordan takes us to Wadi Rum, the seat of Lawrence of Arabia, Petra, the breathtaking Nabatean city carved out of the pink rock.
We may make an extraordinary journey to the Mountain of God – Mount Karkoum in the Negev. Here 40,000 rock paintings were discovered, including representations of the tablets of the Ten Commandments and the word God, scorpions, snakes, camel trains, hunting parties, and more
We join Tel Arad, the ruins of the Canaanite town where an exact replica of the Jerusalem temple has been unearthed.
Your hosts on the journey will be Phyllis, Efrat and Seffi , or other guides from the Zman Midbar team.
