Our FOUNDATION is a common spiritual understanding:
I Am because we are: WE ARE ONE –
It is from this foundation that the entire enterprise stands. We cannot become a solid unit
if we see ourselves as separate from the whole. Such is the plight of humanity. Few understand
their part in the whole, and so they don’t operate according to their purpose.
Our purpose is to be a model of how to operate as one, and to help and inspire others to
do the same.
We value a deep connection with our Creator, the One source of all Being.
We value peace, justice and equity for all life on earth, including the earth.
We value the diversity of life and seek to understand its purpose.
We value social cohesion and a sense of belonging.
We value cooperation and generosity.
We value ecologically sound industry.
We value wisdom and knowledge.
The Omni Foundation is set up to create and support the building of holistic, selfsustaining and regenerative living, learning and healing centers, where the pillars of Awareness, Transparency, Responsibility and Cooperation uphold a framework encircling health of Spirit, Mind, Body, Family and Environment; and foster Community, Productivity, Education, Creativity, and Leisure.
A closer look at our vision:
Our intent is to model a holistic way of life. That is, to live life wholly (Holy) and authentically, showing and teaching those we serve that being aware of our true essence will bring peace and healing to ourselves, our communities, and our world. Many of our evolving concepts of community have been fostered and influenced by the the following readings:
“The Ringing Cedars of Russia, ” series, by Vladimir Megre
“Creating a Life Together,” by Diana Leafe Christian, and
Fellowship for Intentional Communities “Communities” magazines.
What is an Intentional Community?
“An intentional community is a group of people who have chosen to live together with a common purpose, working cooperatively to create a lifestyle that reflects their shared core values… placing a high priority on fostering a sense of community–a feeling of belonging and mutual support that is increasingly hard to find in mainstream Western society.”
We are working toward creating a place to discover one’s true self. An intentional cooperative community, where the residents, members, long-term visitors and guests work together in various fields and industries, offering their own gifts and talents to provide for the health of the whole. This is what we foresee:
- Nature and outdoor living experiences
- Family living
- Guest accommodations
- Common house
- Communal kitchen/dining area
- Event Center (for workshops, speakers, concerts, parties, etc.)
- Livestock farm and apiary
- Organic produce/herbal farm and greenhouse
- Spa/massage/healing center
- Sanctuary amoung nature for prayer and meditation
- School fr residents’ children
- Game room and playgrounds
- Library and video lounge
- Arts and crafts studio
- Workshops and office
- Café/gift shop
All residents will participate in general upkeep of property and facilities and will be required to offer a few hours a week to other community industries.
We will be open to public for short or long-term visits. All guests will be encouraged to participate in routines, and creative and recreational activities to promote spiritual growth and understanding.
