Explore and Co-create Life in Oasis Eco-village


August 30th at (4) 6 PM to September 1st  at 4 PM

Workshops – sharing – groups – presentations – celebration – cooking – tasks – music – sing along & much more

Welcome to the summer 2019 “Explore and Co-create Life in Oasis Eco-village” – event

These events are held about 4 times a year, since several members travels far. The main purpose with the event is to get to know each other and prepare ourselves for living in Oasis Eco-village. During the event we’ll eat and cook together, play music (if somebody brings some instruments – we have a piano) and take another step in the direction of manifesting our dream. Each event has created further clarification in some area. The focus of this event will as always be to welcome new members as well as supporting all of us in making the transition to living in the eco-village. The form of the meeting includes sharing, guided meditations, various exercises/workshops. Sociocracy is  our way of making decisions.

The weekend starts Friday night with dinner, you are welcome to join earlier (4pm) to hang around / help preparing the meal.
