Open Sky House

Spiritual and Arts Community

invites you! 

Retreats in Germany, Spain, Ukraine and India

With a focus on finding out who we really are beyond ego, the socially fabricated ideas and believes which we carry. What is essential to the present moment? What is the Truth? 

A Community which invites you to Be as You Are!

On the Path to inner Freedom a strong and loving community is an essential support to mirror what is inside and support to heal from the past. 

Theater, Music, Art

Our Daily live is an expression of creativity. We run several business and a publishing company for spiritual books and films. In evenings and retreats we often practice theater, mantra music and heart dance

Open Sky Villa

We are continuing to develop our Spiritual Oasis in Spain

In Southern Spain we recently bought a beautiful property, offering space for spiritual seekers from all over the world to reconnect deeply within and find the source from which extraordinary beauty and creativity springs.

The property is growing. We are increasing the capacity of rooms so more people can come, as guests in our beautiful Open Sky Villa Guesthouse, and volunteers and residents of the community.

Love Is

Love is already there. It alone IS. All that is needed on your part is to give up thought, which makes you imagine yourself to be apart from Love, and so merge in Love. Then there is only Love, which is bliss beyond imagination. To one who has discovered the ecstatic joy of volitionless Love, sadhana [spiritual practice] is a laughable absurdity. To those who require justifications, we may say that such Love blossoms only in souls which have perfected their sadhanas in previous births.
