Alvida Doston! It means good-bye friends. Its time to say good bye to our guest to Auroville, students from California Institute of Integral Studies. An institute started by Sri Haridas Chaudhary in California. The students and faculty members from this elite institute were here for two weeks. The stay and introduction sessions were all organized under supervision of Aster di and Bharat Nivas. The sharing at the end of the journey by this special group of individuals is rich and heartfelt. It will be great to hear how their experience was, as in a way, they are distant cousins to Auroville, learning and practicing integral studies.
For past couple of years Serens is traveling around the planet and exploring intentional communities. Her path brought her to Auroville as well where she was exploring how Auroville is today, how much it has achieved, and how much more still needs to go. We will be able to see her exploration as a world premiere of her new film - Auroville: A Dream Down to Earth on Tuesday 12th of January at 5.30pm at Kala Kendra, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India, International Zone. For that screening Serena has prepared selection of other her short films on intentional communities around the world beside the Auroville's one which would be seen the last. Serena admires vast knowledge of Auroville community regarding spirituality, different projects and above all human unity; but she is less enthusiastic about AV architecture which she finds mostly unsustainable..
This is the first project from our community service week at the radio. The aim was to interview visitors who have spent no more than a week in Auroville; to hear how their short stay may have affected them.
