Nifgashim Beyizreel is much more than "just" a guest house; it provides a home for educational activities.
While catering mainly to groups who come with their own programs we can support your seminar with content. We can offer study programs related to topics such as the Kibbutz and Cooperation as a way of living.
Additionally, we are always ready to tailor relevant content to our
"Creating an Intentional Community" workshop:
Designed for youth movements and/or students
The Workshop attempts to explore the idea that man can shape his way of life and that a group of people can create an alternative society based on principles and forms which they as a group have decided on.
Sessions One , Two and Six - the whole forum; Sessions Three , Four and Five in groups of 8-12 participants
Discussion: The World in which we grew up – what is correct with it and what is wrong with it?
Lecture: the concept of utopia – the attempt to build alternative societies. The kibbutz as an example – What did it set out to achieve?
Discussion: How will we make decisions? Majority or consensus? Anarchy? Commitment to decisions.
Discussion: What are the principles on which we build our community? The difference between principles and arrangements/structure.
Drawing up a physical plan for our community and a constitution.
Each group will present its plan and its constitution and will describe the process it went through.
The session will end with a discussion as to whether it is possible to set up alternative societies and or to work within the general society.
