Tel Aviv Hosts Indian Music Extravaganza


Shye Ben-Tzur & The Incredible Rajasthan Gypsies Tour Israel With Their

‘RAJASTHAN MAGICAL TOUR’

 ‘Rajasthan Magical Tour’  It’s the name on the lips of music lovers across the nation at the moment. Absolutely everyone is talking about it.  Or at least it seems that way.  No matter where I go in Tel Aviv, I hear people excitedly talking about the upcoming Oct- Nov concerts. On the bus, the train, a cafe, a yoga class, honestly, its like the buzz word in the city right now.

After a hugely successful sell out concert on their last visit to the holyland,  Israels’ music fans are beside themselves with excitement at having the opportunity once again to be mesmerised by this truly enchanting  ensemble of musical talent. 

Shye Ben-Tzur, a talented Israeli composer, producer and musician living in India, creates his music by combining traditional Sufi sounds, Rajasthani beats and Western elements.  The mix of genres, languages and beats totally captivates and entrances all who have the privledge to listen.  ‘It is a thrilling experience to attend one of these performances, its incredibly moving ‘ is one womans explanation of  her last Shye Ben-Tzur concert experience. 

Both local and global music critics enthusiastically agree without doubt, that Shye is one of the most original and exciting cross-cultural artists working today. ‘He leads the exceptional musicians from India and Israel with talent and charm, in performances that leave you spellbound, wanting more’  said one critic.

In Tel Aviv, Shye Ben-Tzur & The Incredible Rajasthan Gypsies are performing at  Zappa  on Saturday, October 30th as part of the Tel Aviv Music Festival.  doors open 9.00pm  concert starts 10pm.  

By popular demand, thankfully, there’s more than one concert in Israel this time. Performances will be held at a number of venues around the nation. And much to the delight of  local musicians,  there’s also an opportunity to attend an intimate hands-on vocal/beat workshop & encounter with Shye Ben-Tzur and the Rajasthani musicians beforeone of  the concerts.

Israel Yoga Retreat in English


‘ Self  Transformation through Yoga ‘ 

  

prasad Rangnekar retreat in israel

Prasad Rangnekar teaching @ yogakulu vienna austria

Internationally renowned Yoga teacher, Prasad Rangnekar is in Israel to lead a retreat called ‘Self Transformation through Yoga’ organised by the Israel Yoga Teachers Association.  He will also lead classes in pranayama, asana, meditation and love and devotion in various locations around the country and both the retreat and the classes will be taught in English.  

The retreat, Prasad explains is a  correct mix of  Yoga movements, Yogic Trance, Silence, Meditations, Breath work and interesting discussions on the ancient Yogic Scriptures.  ‘The overall atmosphere of this retreat ‘ he says ‘ is non-competitive and relaxed. The emphasis being on enjoyment and understanding rather than effort, so there’ll be time for personal reflection and time too, to simply enjoy the beautiful nature of Israel’s north.’    

‘Classical Yoga is a truly wonderful system for inner exploration and personal evolution.  Hence, the basis of the workshop is to experiment and to learn from one’s own experience and sensations, cultivating a deep awareness and understanding of the mind and body, finally touching the depths of the Heart.  It’s a journey that brings you closer to the you as you are, generating self-acceptance and self-Love…. which is the basis of Yoga.’  

The weekend retreat is being held at Kibbutz Tuval, located in the heart of the Galilee region, in the breath takingly beautiful Karmiel Mountains.  Kibbutz Tuval has long been an immensely popular accommodation choice for both locals and international tourists due to its beautiful surrounds and tranquil atmosphere and if the kibbutz website photo gallery is anything to go by, it’s very easy to understand why.  The views of the area are delightful!  

If you are coming by car, there is a map on the Kibbutz website. If you are coming by train, you will need to catch a train to Acco, then a sherut ( yellow mini bus) to Karmiel which costs 13 nis, then catch a taxi to Tuval which costs about 40-50 nis. You can also catch a taxi straight from Acco to Tuval which will cost around 120 nis.  I understand that the organisers of the retreat, The Israel Yoga Teachers Association, are planning to organise a couple of pickups from the train station, so get in touch with them to arrange this.  

‘Explore yourself through the ancient path of Yoga, through movements of the body, rhythm of the breath, fullness of Heart and a deeper understanding of the ancient yoga scriptures. Through this retreat we seek to accept ourselves and generate joy in whatever we do to establish a strong conviction of the Love within and thus “Live” yoga rather than just “do” Yoga.’

Osho Therapy Israel – Path to Love Intensive 14-20 October


 
Osho therapy a path to love oct 14-20th 2008

Osho therapy a path to love oct 14-20th 2008

 Osho Therapy Course A Path To Love will be offered in Israel with the dynamic course leaders Satyarthi & Alima  on October 14 – 20th 2008.

Osho Therapy is highly acclaimed in the world of personal development and inner growth. The world renowned courses are held around the globe throughout the year and over 200,000 people annually  venture to the Osho meditation Centre in Pune India, to participate in courses, meditate, develop self awareness and simply take time out from their busy lives to focus on inner growth.  

The Path to Love course being held in Israel in October is a wonderful opportunity to participate in an very beautiful process to develop and awaken your self love.

Below is an excerpt from course decscription on the Path to love website

The Path of Love is an intensive, highly structured 7 day process in which participant’s are supported to passionately focus on their sincere desire or longing to realize their full human and spiritual potential.

This longing, combined with love for the Truth, provides clear inner guidance and direction for spiritual unfoldment. The longing of the heart is benevolent, but as it is oriented towards Truth, it ruthlessly reveals internal layers of identification, concepts, judgments, beliefs, negativity and emotionally charged defensive positions that keep us separate from directly experiencing our True Nature.

By honestly facing and burning through these layers, a very profound opening in the heart happens which is usually experienced as Love. This Love softens the spiritual journey making the challenges bearable and the journey sweet as well as giving meaning, purpose, compassion and ultimately Freedom to the seeker.

This Path of Love process, taken with a firm, focused intention, a sincere longing for Freedom and happening in the presence of deep compassion and respect, presents the possibility for the participant to have a significant breakthrough or shift in consciousness.

The Path of Love is a journey of honest inquiry into our True Nature; a path of devotion, prayer and longing for the Divine Beloved while taking full responsibility for the creation of one’s life.

The course will be held in English and with many participants coming to Israel from abroad there will be a lovely international atmosphere.

For Information, Questions or Bookings please email either Israel@pathoflove.net or  info@oshoisrael.com  or call Korah on 052-8883040
