RECONNECT WITH YOUR ROOTS &
FALL IN LOVE WITH LIFE AGAIN
Yes, Love still lives here.
You wake each morning in the comfort of your home. You’ve never been so connected, yet disconnected at the same time. You’ve never had so much, but yet so little.
Everything is safe, but life still manages to escape you – somehow disconnected from your own humanity.
When you seem to have it all, it’s easy to lose sight of the things that truly matter.
So what if I told you can go right back to the beginning and reawaken those parts in you that make life worth living. You can experience first hand the human spirit in action. To experience what meaning and purpose look like.
Gaining a deeper understanding of what it truly means to be human. What it means to transcend your conditions and live a full human life.
This little piece of land still remains one of the most historically and culturally significant places in the course of human history. It’s God’s country, the intersection of three of the world’s great monotheistic faiths.
But it’s also so much more than that.
Rich in food and culture, music and art, natural beauty and a certain spiritual resonance.
Eat, Pray and YES LOVE – because Love does still live here.
This is a 7-day, 6-night experience and is limited to 10-14 persons only. If this sounds like something you’re ready for, then read on!
Experience the real Palestine, the one you never see on the evening news and then go a little deeper...

The Old City of Bethlehem
AN ANCIENT TOWN DATING BACK TO 1400BC
Sitting atop of a subtle mount, some 775m above seat level is the old city of Bethlehem. Founded in 1400 BC, it has survived many conquests over centuries and maintains its place as one of the most historical significant cities on earth, the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth.
Today it remains as an intersection between east as west, but also between the worlds three great monotheistic traditions in Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
It remains a melting pot of cultures, foods, pilgrims, spiritual seekers, artists and craftspeople alike. With the local population welcoming thousands of people annually with their customary hospitality.
You'll be immersed in the deep historic, cultural and spiritual resonance which still exists here.
"My experience with My Chi journey has been empowering, I highly recommend to anyone who needs to find answers within themselves..."
Founder My Chi Journey
Out of all the experiences we've hosted over the years, this one remains the closest to my heart. I was born in Jerusalem to a family that originates from the small village of Taybeh in the West Bank. I've only recently come to appreciate everything this place has to offer, a beautiful land filled with so many contrasts and contradictions.
Despite my university degrees and all my other accomplishments, the best lessons I have ever learned have always come through my lived experience. Through the sharing of knowledge only to see it transformed to a deeper level of understanding.
And despite being an educator, the role I cherish most, is the one of student - being a close observer of life and drawing on all the wisdom that has gone before me. I have committed my life to walking the path that nature has laid out before me and I now invite you to do the same.
