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

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

This is an exiting time since the local plan has been in hearing and is up for a final decision March 25th. These events are held around 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 Life 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 include sharing’s, guided meditations, various exercises/workshops. Sociocracy as our way of making decisions.
