A Bit About Us
2020 marks a new era for Oneirema. At the turn of the year, the constellation of people holding the vision for Oneirema transformed. Now an international group of diverse individuals are collaborating in the spirit of ubuntu with the seen and unseen who call this mystical place home in order to co-hold a renewed intention in service to the evolution of humanity welcoming a new earth. A spiritual home of teaching, community, revitalisation, and earth connection...a retreat into discovering what nourishes each one's body and soul, and so the body and soul of humanity and Gaia. We hope that you will soon come to join one of our gatherings or schedule time for yourself on the land for your own journey.
Oneirema (pronounced o-neé-re-ma) means Conscious Dreaming in Greek: the process of consciously dreaming awake; dreaming Life into existence. This land is a sacred playground for evolution teaching us Union--reflected in and emanating from the nature and landscape. The union of both: an essence deeply feminine, fluid, dark, void energy of both nurturance and wildness all the way to chaos and destruction; as well as, a highly integrated masculine essence, clearly delineated, sword-like, powerfully cutting through illusion and conditioning.
As holders of Oneirema we have each been taught and continue to learn the lessons that penetrate us in our relationships, in our life tasks, together with all the radical de-conditioning, the cycles of death and rebirth, the constant process of transformation and change it evokes. We continue to stay committed to a way that brings forth the truth of who we are connected with all life.
Meet you soon,
The team of Oneirema
