The Open Day Weekend is an Invitation to Discover a New Way of Life

What Society offers is a system of ideas which makes us believe we are a separate individual and life is all about fulfilling our own small desires. This Treadmill not only keeps us caught up in a cycle of suffering but also has tremendously deleterious effects on the planet which are increasingly becoming undeniable. The Planet could soon be undergoing a drastic change which will have a huge effect on Humanity’s Survival. 

The Bigger Picture

John David about How Spiritual Companionship offers a New Way for Humanity

The reality of climate change is that it may already be too late if we don’t drastically change something. We have brought our planet’s ecosystem to a point where it could easily collapse. The most important thing to save ourselves and the planet is to develop Self-Awareness and become aware of our Inner Essence.

The default state of today’s human is a constant feeling of something missing. To compensate for that, we develop all sorts of strategies, and modern society supports these strategies: we buy a new car, new clothes, seek a new partner, or fly on vacation to escape the stress of everyday life. In doing so, we consume far more than we actually need. Encouraged by a relentless advertisement campaign. 

Only by fundamentally questioning this feeling of unfulfillment can we discover a deeper place within ourselves, a Source of authentic Peace and Love. When we live from this place, we will not consume thoughtlessly or feel lost, but live in Love and Compassion for ourselves, others, and the Planet. 

Above all, we can connect with the deep Peace within us and become willing to accept each moment as it is. We then live in a natural flow, without a sense of lack, content with what is already present.

To support each other on this journey to our Essence, we need oases that create a space for self-exploration and provide a protected space for us to engage with inner issues that produce our desires and fears. Letting go of these is not easy and temporarily makes us very vulnerable.

The energetic support of an Unconditionally Loving and Caring Community is essential for this deep process of transformation. The powerful Frequency of Love, Stillness, and Creativity allows us to listen deeply to the question: Who am I? and let an answer arise from our own Realisation.

The Open Sky House Community is such an Oasis of conscious living that radiates out into the world. We hope that this Spiritual Oasis will inspire and support many people to embark on the inner journey of self-exploration—for themselves, for the people around them, and for our Planet.


We are currently launching a new film project which is inspired by the urgent need for a deep transformation within our Hearts in order to change the course of humanity’s fate from Doom to Bloom. If you are inspired and feel to contribute to the project with inspiration, researching information or video editing skills don’t hesitate to get in touch with Om:
