Goodbye July, and thank you. We had a blast!
You brought much to be thankful for, like celebrations of birth and freedom; opportunities to share of ourselves and our message with friends and the extended community; blessings of creativity, and labors of Love completed. You brought a sting with you, as well, (in the way of a stolen bank card—on my birthday, no less. And the day before the Festival.), but with it came the salve of Faith and Patience, and we have since healed from it. You brought questions, yet unanswered, of where we are going and where we belong, and here again are Faith and Patience, led this time by Gratitude.
We are deeply grateful that we abide in this cozy, little town of Graskop, Mpumalanga, a place of slow pace, peace, mostly quiet and freedom to live as we please and are able—that is with a focus on education, creating inspirational material, growing in wisdom and knowledge, and working and moving toward our Omni vision. Yes, we’re longing for the land on which to create our Omni dream, but it’s going to be a task in getting there. For now, we are where we are, and it is good. Gratefulness of Being invites Patience and Peace until we get there.
Happy Birthday LEAH!
Thank you! I prefer to call it birth-month, because I like to prolong the fun. This year my birth-month was highlighted by
(1) The publishing of “On Point Polly.” I’ve received some great reviews! Click on the pic to download your free e-book.
(2) The next day I got to sing some of my songs at the Free Form Festival.
You can hear my song, “I Honor You,” here.
We had a lovely time and a very positive response.
The kids had a blast! and (3) Paul & Melinda Odendaal and family were here too (please forgive me for butchering their name, last issue).
The Odendaals believe in the Omni mission, and have expressed interest in the community vision. We will see how our lives unfold in the near future.
And (4) we opened our new online Gift Shop!

I’ve been invited to play at the Spirit of uBuntu Festival.
September 21-23 in Hoedspruit, Mpumalanga
The property search continues… Though the price for the Lydenberg property has gone down a bit, we have decided it is not the best property to suit our needs and desires, so we are looking elsewhere.
We are open to Spirit’s leading, whether it be here or there, that is, in South Africa or in the United States. We would eventually like to build in both. The pros and cons to each are many and significant, the question is, where to first? Wherever it is, home is calling us to lay down some roots.
This video depict exactly what we’re working toward. It is how we envision the land being built upon.
This workshop, a collaboration of Bioveda Academy founder Alosha Lynov, and Haven Earth founder, Paul Richardson, will take place in Bodrum, Turkey, September 16th to the 30th . It is our intent to host such workshops and much more, once we have settled down.
Looking down on the landscape of now, we see ourselves taking small and incremental steps, going peacefully, but not without obstacles. Such is Life. As much as we’d like to rush forward, we realize there are systems in place that impede our progress. But we need not see these obstacles as enemies, but rather as opportunities to strengthen our Faith, stretch our Patience, and practice Peace, and for that, we are grateful.
We also see how reliant we are on “the system.” Being without our US bank card for more than two weeks was a test. We don’t see the wisdom in relying on the banking system, yet here we are, entrenched in it. Though our Omni mission and motive are not Fear-based, we recognize the need for self-sustainability, so that’s where we’re headed, learning along the way, with Faith, Gratitude, Patience and Peace, forever our companions.

And that's what's up with Omni
