ABOUT US:

Hey, We are Kobi and Pazit.

Our journey together started from a shared dream: to step away from the daily grind and really make a difference. We both worked with at-risk youth and people dealing with mental health challenges, and those experiences opened our eyes to the deep struggles people face every day.We realize that to truly change our lives and assist others more profoundly, we need to deepen our understanding.

So, we took a big leap—leaving our jobs, our families, and our familiar lives to travel the world. We explore ancient spiritual wisdom from great teachers and traditions. Those years of learning and growing together led us to create the Vagabond Temple.

 We offer you a welcoming space where you can truly be yourself, align with your essence, find your own path, and grow. We’re here to guide and inspire you to make positive changes, live more mindfully, and find joy in every moment.
