Our Trauma Support Program

Healing Together, Thriving Forever

In the wake of the October 7 attacks, Free Spirit decided to leverage all our resources and capabilities to provide assistance and support to survivors of the "Nova" music festival, held in the south on October 7. Over 3,000 people attended the festival, which tragically became a target for the terrorists. Many lost their lives, many were injured, and others were abducted to Gaza. Those who were fortunate enough to survive the event experienced deep trauma and are in need of support and healing.

About Us

Our standard operations at Free Spirit involve addressing the challenges faced by youth and young adults worldwide, from anxiety and depression to trauma and other obstacles hindering the realization of one's potential for happy and fulfilling life. Quickly realizing that the scale of the events on October 7th would require systemic assistance to all victims, especially one backed by the necessary experience and knowledge, we established a support program for participants of the "Nova" festival.

The Program

The three-day program takes place on our campus in Kibbutz Hazorea, an area currently beyond the reach of sirens and events. It provides an ideal setting for such a program. Participants gather on the opening day in a sociable and open atmosphere, getting to know one another, the team, and the physical surroundings. Following introductory rounds and general orientation, the group engages in a variety of activities such as group discussions in nature and our club-house (a large communal room used for meetings), informal conversations, holistic and social activities, and more. In line of our experience and philosophy, we provide a choiceful environment enriched with the powerful community-feel, productive and functional activities, and professional support. It is amazing to witness and participate in this three-day process and follow our participant-community monthly as they revisit us for check-ins.

Watch Channel 11 Report about the program


Support, assistance, guidance, advice, and continuous help are available throughout the program. This occurs in the evening around the bonfire, in various workshops, and on trips and discussions. As part of their stay, participants also enjoy a chef's meal, yoga, ceramics, painting, massage, and more.


Upon completion of the program, we maintain contact with participants (at their discretion) and offer ongoing support, connections to our growing community, and continued therapeutic assistance in their own community setting, as needed. The communities formed at the end of each group have become one of the most exciting outcomes of the program, and some participants return for another cycle to continue the experience and help others.
