You are here
Dear fans, listeners, kindred spirits, beautiful freaks…
It is sadly not possible anymore to add a message to this guestbook.
All these years, we kept our guestbook (sadly a very old-fashioned thing
in these times) for those who wanted to share their feelings with us via
a different route than social media. But during the past few years, the
amounts of spam we receive and have to delete, have become unmanagable.
You can still write us using the contact form instead of the guestbook.

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
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.
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
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!
I wish you all best greatings so that you find back your power.Mental am i with you and
stay all time by your side.
I ll give some of my spirit to you .
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!
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!
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
Happy Autumn Soltice the the World of Omnia!
My name is Holly and I live in America. I am overjoyed to have discovered you today on the Solstice. I have become uttterly fed up with the facism and greed and overall disease of this counrty and the world in which we live.
Everthing happens for a reason and there is a deep current of energies that have brought me to your musick and universe today. We share the same ideals and love of Nature and Mother Earth and love and need for music to provide some sort of relief from this modern world. I was introduced to the ways of the Druids at an early age. I spend as much time in the forest as possible when I am not chained to modern life.
I have just listened to your concert from June of this year 2016 at Castlefest and have spent the wonderful time reflecting on nature and the problems we face in the modern world. I admire your lifestlye and yearn for a way to make my own in a similar manner.
As a newcomer to your universe I have lots of material to explore and I feel as if my world has been opened to to something truly beautiful and magikal. Thank you for expressing your energies and putting them out in the world so that likeminded souls can share in the magik.
Hopefully in the future you can tour more in the USA but beware because there is a sickness here that has taken over the population. There are very few here who haven't fallen ill.
I dont speak human either.... many thanks for your words
Dear Stenny and Omnia team,
We are two of your many fans who happen to fiddle around with musiс from time to time. Our names are Klavdiya and Anton; Klavdiya was disсovered as a voiсe earlier this year by guitar player Anton via their love for your musiс and views on the world and Nature.
This inspired them to reсord their own interpetation of one of your songs, namely "Blaсk House"!
We rehearsed separately and then gathered to reсord it, so it's just one guitar and one voiсe.
We would love it if you found the time to have a listen and share one or two sentenсes of your opinion on it!
With muсh love from Bulgaria,
Nou Saat, jij weet mensen op het verkeerde been te zetten met je kapselfoto's. Smiechtekop! Mooi haar is niet lelijk...
DAMIEN RAVEN, where art thou? Gestopt without saying goodbye... oooooh! We gaan je missen!
Hi, love your music xx can't seem to find where to buy t-shirts and C.D's on this website?
My husband and I really love your music and have been traveling all around to see you guys in concert. Thanks for making my weekends filled with music and dance and making me feel confirmed in my beliefs about nature and my way of living.
Too bad you were running out of shirts in Borken, and now your online shop is missing?! Please, bring it back for all of us!
Ik zou graag wat willen bestellen maar de shop ligt er uit dat vind ik heel jammer wanneer komt de shop weer op de site.
Hi everybody! My daughter (12) fell in love with MPS in general and omnia specifically this summer, so we're all listening now! (including her little brother, aged 2) we'd love to know, which language the "ethnical" bits and bobs are in, like in "Babu bawu", couldn't find that anywhere... thank's a million!
Although I don't consider myself a Pagan (traditional Celtic paganism could get pretty dark and scary--there were often live people inside those burning wicker structures!) I do derive a whole lot of (orgone?) energy listening to your music. Having lived in this life over three-quarters of a century, that's not a trivial consideration. And I mostly agree with you about the problem of natural environmental destruction. Even the other Pope, the one in Rome, apparently agrees with you, though admittedly many of his adherents do not.
Face it, we're at least part of the problem if we interact in any meaningful way with our fellow "mutant monkeys." Even if you use candles at home, the electricity that powers the amplifiers and stage lights at your entrancing performances may well come from wood-chip fired power plants. (Though probably not in Germany.) Some of your soul-brothers and sisters in Britain have already publicly given up, holding midnight earth-funeral rituals cum orgies in England before decamping to Wales.
I'm not certain that the situation is quite that bleak--yet. But it will be a near thing. In the USA we are soon to choose for President between a happy narcissist with no conception of human-induced global warming and a seriously impaired war goddess who is likely to get us all nuked. Some choice!
So hang in there. It could be worse--and yes it probably will be before the mm's become alarmed enough in large enough numbers to find and empower new leadership which can actually do something effective to improve the situation.
Cheers and a Little Green Thing or Two,
Discovered you guys on Youtube and I am in LOVE with your music! Keep on making this sweet sound.
saw you in Spayer at one of the hotest day this year!
Thanks for the great show, that sadly ends, because of the timetable.
But tell your fans where is the OMNIA-shop gone?
Did you sell enough, or is the stoc empty?
Greenthings on free wings
Just wanted to say you guys rock!! Your music is addicting! Your music is beautiful, you all are beautiful! Been a fan a few years now! So glad I found your music, it never ever gets old. I love you guys, keep rocking! Blessed be. <3
