Om Sunisa

Trainer for Holistic Worldviews, Deep Ecology & Ecovillage Design Education
Om Sunisa

Om Sunisa grew up in a rural village and was from her very beginning immersed in community life. When she noticed negative developments in her birth village, she started to study communities more in-depth - both in theory and in practice. From her experience, she shares about the major elements for empowered communities, the ways to support youth and her core solutions to make a real shift. As a Buddhist, she especially emphasizes the first path of the eightfold path: The right view and understanding of the world, which builds on a holistic worldview of interconnectedness.

    Thank you, Om, what a precious work: to go with your knowledges andcexperiences into a “normal” village and to support the community and community members to develop in a healthy common life again. Real peace work. ♡~☆~♡

    Your dedication Om inspires. So many many people leave their villages of birth to seek Luck elsewhere, and you stayed, went away, and returned!

  • Dear Om, Its amazing to hear you and its a subject so in my heart would love to learn and experience more. Your energy radiets.
