Israel and Palestine

Join our 35th Journey to the Heart of Israel and Palestine
November 4 - 15, 2023

Join us for the journey of a lifetime—our annual training delegation where participants live the practice of Compassionate Listening.

Today, after 34 Journeys and many conflict transformation workshops for Israelis and Palestinians, we are one of the oldest organizations engaged in people-to-people peacemaking. This is not a tourist trip - it is a journey into the hearts and homes of Israelis and Palestinians in the heart of profound conflict. Participants give the gift of listening and in exchange, receive an education in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and ways to support peacemakers on the ground, and gain experience with our embodied practice that will serve you back home in every aspect of your life. 


34th Israel & Palestine Journey, 2019

Journeys begin in Jerusalem with an intensive introduction to Compassionate Listening. We listen to people whose lives are profoundly impacted by the conflict. Our goal during these visits is to understand and dialogue with the person in front of us, while practicing our craft of listening and speaking from the heart. Compassionate Listening allows dialogue to take place “heart to heart” and has an entirely different quality. Through our daily practice in the field and our group sessions, participants come away with a deepened understanding of Compassionate Listening, a powerful skill set for peace-building in our families, communities, and in all conflict situations. A primary goal for this delegation is to support the peacemakers as we deepen our understanding of, and connection with, the land and people of the region.

“The experience was amazing: eye-opening, mind-bending, and soul-shaking. I would recommend it heartily to anyone who really wants to experience, not just visit, the Holy Land.”   ~ Dr. Robert Stall, medical doctor and Middle East peacemaker
