Hi! I love your music so much that I'm putting together a belly dance choreography to your version of The Elven Lover for my local Pagan Pride festival. But I can't find an MP3 on either Amazon or iTunes. Where can I buy an MP3 of this wonderful song??

Thanks so much,
Emily

Steve ,Sorry to hear your feeling unwell . No need to do everything/take on all the responsibilty yourself. Let your brothers and sisters in Omnia share your load man... The spirit that is nature will always survive (Changed maybe and possibly without the "Human" race). Humanoids are afterall just motes in the eye of eternity . Nature IS eternal. So take it easy baby. Let your tribe ease your burdens . Breathe slow and deep and eat plenty of porridge!!!
Peace

Eerlijk is eerlijk, ook ik ben niet het beste voorbeeld van een Earth Warrior... Ik doe nog een heleboel dingen fout, maar probeer zeker mijn bijdrage te leveren aan een betere wereld. Dus ja, nog altijd te veel een "mutant monkey", maar wel steeds minder. DEAR STEVE, YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT YOU DEFENITELY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB; the best you can. Ben niet teleurgesteld in al die domkoppen, die niet zien of niet willen zien, hoe slecht de aarde eraantoe is. BEN TROTS op wat jullie WEL al bereikt hebben: het (groene) hart van mensen weten te raken, met jullie muziek en jullie filosofie. Mijn vriend is dankzij jullie inmiddels volledig vegetarisch; ik zondig nog af en toe (maximaal één keer in de maand/twee maanden, als er een bitterbal voorbij komt op een feestje of door het eten van een nog net niet vegetarische nasischijf; ja, helaas weinig ruggengraat... working on it!). Onderschat jullie invloed niet. 't Is als een olievlek, die zich langzaam verspreidt... maar dan op een goede manier, natuurlijk. Take your time, take care and KEEP THE FAITH! Where would we, monkeys, be without our own Pagan Pope? Don't let the sun go down on us (and most certainly not on yourself)... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR setting an example and TEACHING US HOW TO LIVE!

No no no noooo!
Wil ik net drie kaartjes bestellen voor jullie aankomende optreden in Praag, is alles uitverkocht! Is er nog een andere manier om aan kaarten te komen voor dit optreden?

Geweldig wat jullie doen allemaal, trouwens.
Keep up the good vibe and spirit!

Wendie

And right you are. At last Castle Fest, I was thinking during your performance: we all sing about being an earth warrior, and afterwards we step in our cars and drive home... It felt not right. And you felt not right, I sensed your irritation. Enjoy your break, take your time. Relax, recover.
Love, Wendie and family.

Thanks Omnia, for making me feel this warm musical notes, make me feel that I'm not alone, that I'm not crazy, to get me up the spirits, to make a music that surrounds me and transports me to another dimension, a dimension that makes me feel like that I'm in home and makes me forget my problems, but without forgetting that we exist crazy people seeking a way to heal this world, a solution, find a way to raise awareness! You are so damn lucky to know how to play instruments and make great music! and to let off steam through it and let flow your thoughts and energies that go directly flowing with love, strength and courage to Gaia, people, the earth in general ... It just goes straight to the soul... Keep fighting ... just lets keep fighting...
Many blessings for all!

I found your music videos a few years ago. And I fell in love. Your music speaks something special to me. I'm glad I found your videos on YouTube, because for once in my life, I found other beings that understand the earth and animals like I do. At least I can say that my spirit travels with you, and in high hopes one day I see you all in person. Thank you for spreading your message, and thank you for being the wonderful beings that you are.

Earth warrior battle fatigue.

Ik begrijp het helemaal. Als ik een festival of zo iets bezoek dan Heb ik last van all die mesnen om mij heen. De koopverslaving, De Ik eerst mentalitijd, Mensen Die hun verontwaardiging tweeten over Coorparties op hun door slaven inelkaar gezette Iphone gemaakt van grondstoffen weggerukt uit moeder aarde. En toch… Ik schrijf dit op een computer en ben deel van die mensen. En koop ook nog wel eens wat en heus niet allemaal fair trade en eco. Ik haat het ik ben een onderdeel van het systeem dat ik veracht en waar ik heel erg droevig van wordt. Ik kan me niets eens voorstellen hoe dat voor jullie moet zijn Nergens meer anoniem en geen mogelijkheid ergens rust te vinden.

Maar denk niet dat het zinloos is wat jullie doen. Als jullie spelen zorg je er voor dat mensen op dat moment genieten. Jullie muziek komt hier elke dag de speakers uit. Zij troost en zweept je op om toch maar weer eens te gaan demonstreren of gewoon de moeite te doen bewuste keuze te maken.. Ze doet je beseffen dat je leeft en dat je maar 1 keer leeft en daar zoveel mogelijk goed mee moet doen (al valt dat niet mee). Jullie muziek zorgt niet alleen voor vertier maar ook voor een besef. En iedereen die je weet te bereiken is er weer een. Misschien preek je vaak voor mensen die het toch ook allemaal al weten. Maar je geeft ze ook de kracht om zelf eens in actie te komen of een keer iets aan de kaak te stellen.
Jullie muziek maakt niets kapot
Jullie muziek verspreid bewustzijn over de gestoordheid van de mens
Als een olievlek maar dan een goede

Jullie kunnen dat alleen maar doen als je zelf goed in je vel zit dus een half jaar vrij is niet alleen goed voor jullie en ook niet alleen voor je fans maar ook goed voor de aarde.

Ik ga 22 oktober tegen TTIP/CETA/ACTA in Amsterdam protesteren (schaamteloze plug sorrie) en dat doe ik omdat ik door jullie muziek het oude vuur weer terug gevonden heb.

Zo dat hebben jullie maar weer bereikt

Geniet van je vrijheid

En voor je verdwijnt in een ver en verlaten mag ik weten wat voor fluit is de paleolithische fluit en op welk nummer wordt hij gebruikt. Ik zou er graag wat meer over weten. En nu je toch aan het werk bent hoe heet de fluit waar Kokopelli

Fans laten je ook nooit met rust sorry

Hi Stenny,omnia
Hope mother nature helps to heal your troubled minds and souls at this time, It is very hard to stare consumerism, greed, inhumanity and destruction in the face and feel at times helpless, angry and that people just don't understand the real message . But without people like you those of us that listen to your beautiful music, listen to your words and know what your talking about would loose a part of our souls. We need people like you to keep us strong so that when we look around and see the shit that is happening in our world we still have hope and we can still fight back even if it only changes something small at a time. A giant oak starts from such a small acorn and omnia's legacy is already deep within some of our hearts.
I wish you peace, love ,freedom and wisdom.
Wayne

I was wondering all the time how you do it. How you always find the strength to cope with the world (almost) full with all the stupid monkeys. Reading your message now I’m shocked, but on the other hand I’m glad you realized your need for a break.

Take your time. Heal. Please rest, but don’t give up!

We’re with you, we try to be the best Earth Warriors we can be. If we went to festivals, it was because of YOU.

Hugs and love,
Ildraven and the “paganfolks” from Coethen, Germany

Dear Stenny,

I hope you get your strength back soon when listening to birdsong and the wind dancing in the leaves. Large parts of this "society" are just super frustrating, I am feeling with you. I've just moved to another part of the world with amazing nature and blissfully empty of humans to save some parts of nature but then have to see the thoughtless onslaughter on nature even here, as soon as there is a town or city. But we will keep fighting, trying to each save tiny bits of nature at a time.
Maybe you should come here, to Australia, at some point in the future? I think the people here are in desperate need for some nature education by Omnia!
Thanks for your musick, it gives me the strength to keep on fighting and to remember who I am.

All the best, keep the hopes up and the greenfeelz in your souls!
Jo

Stenny,

After reading your most recent blog entry, I wonder if you and Omnia might not be reaching a turning point in your lives, both as people and musicians. In figuring out what makes sense for your (and our) future, it's important to remember that many people have been inspired by you and have, in a sense, become dependent on your songs and yourselves to keep them going as "Earth Warriors." I notice even your friend and collaborator Fieke van der Hurk is planning to leave Cesair to devote full time to recorded music production. Could her experience working with you to produce two successful albums in one year have influenced her decision?

If you're becoming "blown out" on touring, especially at festivals, a thought comes to mind for a possible alternative. How about acquiring some land with included woodland and setting up an ashram. Perhaps an estate sale with financing by crowd-funding from believers in your message would answer. You could then do your performances on your own schedule in your own venue for audiences which would come to you. Depending on your inclinations, you might also wish to conduct activities such as guided meditations, including music and dance.

Nor would this arrangement preclude you from making tours, both within the EU and internationally. These tours would be different from the past ones in that your followers in each city visited would make the arrangements, sell tickets and compensate your travel costs. The main thing is that Omnia would be the sole (or principal) performing group. Again, this could be combined both at home and on the road with TED talks, seminars, meditations or NATURE activism rallies as appropriate to local conditions.

What I'm suggesting would be some combination of Esalen, the Dalai Lama, John of God, the Stones, Jimmy Swaggert and Greenpeace. Yes, that would be totally unrealistic in the near term and even risks becoming inauthentic (in plain English "phoney") if it became too successful. The trick would be to start small and be ready to reject any expansion of scope that did not ring true to your core values.

BTW, I did indirectly get a book recommendation from you. Since noting that both of you were reading a book by Christopher Moore, an author I'd never heard of, I decided to check his offerings on Amazon. While putting off reading his books about saving souls in San Francisco, I instead chose "Lamb," a semi-serious book in which Yeshua bar Yussuf and his best bud, Levi bar Yitzaak, aka Biff, go off to the Far East from Israel as adolescents and have a series of "Excellent Adventures," including Yeshua in process of doing yoga managing to get himself stuck in an amphora and requiring Biff to break the amphora to release him. But some of it was really funny!

Well, enough for now. Happy Autumnal Equinox, Samhain and Yule; hang in there for your remaining gigs in 2016 and enjoy your half-year sabbatical in 2017. We won't be able to be at Faireycon in Baltimore this year (my wife and daughter will be flying to NYC to see Richard Armitage instead) but, as I suspect you know, we Americans have just as many "Toys in the Attic" as you do--maybe more!

feeling with you. take time, take you and feel free. wishing you forces to feel good with your decisions. it is so crazy, that heart work, the things you really love to do can be so hard, but that is the absolutely truth. i really could feel what you write about festivals. i went only to see you to borken. took my son, my bottle with water and some apples with me. felt a little lost beetween drinking and party people. but i based me next to a wonderfull tree and listened to you. some people ar more sensitive with influences...everything is what it is...absolutely ok. wishing you a good and inspiring time. just for you!
take care!

happy autaumn äquinox
i say thank you to you, to myself and to mother earth. a hard year with a lot of learnings about life and death, being alone and together with all the mankind and every living, saying hello and goodbye, a lot of deep impressions and experiences. on this way i found your music. in borken i had the chance to enjoy you live. thank you a lot. my son was playing on a beautiful tree with other children while i was dancing and listening to you. great! on the way home i found my totem. or it founds me? i met a little hawk. felt in my heart the words i am little hawk. now this is my next teaching. what this totem is telling me. your music is a good companion for that teaching.
about your death blog i would like to say yes, i am feeling you. i live near a moor landscape and i was really misding the insect sounds this year. only a few butterflys and snails i met this summer. only two hand of birds...how sad. sometimes i am scared about reflecting that, but we have to go on and do what we can do.
thank you for your good job to give your message to so much people. please go on!

Holly

I meant to wish you all a Happy Autumnal Equinox. Sorry human error. Hope to see your art live someday. Peace from St. Louis, Missouri USA
