Healing the Heart of the Holy Land Tour

WITH David and Anna Less

Healing the Heart of the Holy Land | David Less Tours

Join David Less, Anna Less, and the Peacemakers of the Abrahamic Reunion in the Holy Land for an unforgettable and powerful journey of hands-on, participatory, volunteer peace-building in the Holy Land. The Abrahamic Reunion - a group of Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Druze peacemakers - are offering a week of events called Healing the Heart of the Holy Land, which this tour will support and be part of.

This tour will participate in and support Healing the Heart, offering an intimate experience of multi-faith peace-building, solidarity, and healing work, and give you a chance to bring your own prayerful heart, compassionate glance, kind actions, and healing insight to support and help the transformation of separation into friendship. Everyone on this tour will be part of the process of building peace in the Holy Land – your participation and support of the peacemakers will help to make this vision of peace a reality and there will be hands-on ways each day we will engage peace-building.

In addition, the tour will take several days to visit sacred locations to all faiths, meet peacemakers and religious leaders individually, and enjoy the beauty, atmosphere, nature, and powerful spiritual resonance of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, the Galilee, and the beaches of Tel Aviv.

Daily meditations, practices of different religious and spiritual traditions, and group sharing ∓ processing circles will round out the spiritual container for the important work being done on this journey.

Peace, Salaam, Shalom - May peace prevail in the Holy Land and the Earth.
