Chanting to Goddess Sarasvati
Nishtha has translated all main and sub-hymns to Sarasvati in the Rig-Veda. In this first lecture Nishtha brought back the rhythm and tone that was used originally in Sarasvati. So instead of having the dry mechanical tone and rhythm we now have the chants by the Rishis in beautiful poetic sounds and rhythms. Participants also had the chance to join in the chants to the Goddess Sarasvati (the flow of Divine Inspiration) as was heard originally in the vision and spiritual experience of the Rishis of the Rig-Veda.

”Une jeunesse qui ne vieillira point”

La mousson en fond sonore, nous avons rencontré dans la salle de musculation de New Creation Gym, Savitri, la maitresse des lieux. Personnalité intense, pleine de volonté, Savitri décide à l'âge de 60 ans de reprendre ses études et de passer un BAC Scientifique pour ensuite entrer à l'université. Passionnée par le corps dans tout ces aspect, elle souhaite monter à Auroville une véritable école de sport. Mais Savitri c'est aussi celle qui nous fait suer, celle qu'on maudit presque lorsqu'elle dit « last 10 » alors qu'on croyait la série d'abdo finie. C'est aussi elle qui nous réconcilie avec notre corps, celle qui nous montre qu'il n'est jamais trop tard, que le temps est relatif comme la jeunesse.

Le jeu de peindre a Auroville

Arno Stern est le premier praticien d'éducation créatrice, une fonction qu'il a inventée au sortir de la guerre, en 1946, et qu'il continue à exercer. Dans le Closlieu (l'espace qu'il a créé pour cette activité) il a fait une extraordinaire découverte : la Formulation. Le dessin enfantin est dicté par une nécessité organique, et il s'accomplit selon des lois spécifiques qui, seules, permettent de le comprendre. Cette approche simple et profonde de l’expression picturale offre un cadre rassurant et une liberté bénéfique à qui est en difficulté ou non. Elle est compatible avec une pratique artistique mais totalement différente : les traces ne sont pas destinées à la communication et à l’approbation des autres, mais simplement accueillies « en l’état » ! Sandrine, praticienne du jeu de peindre à Auroville depuis quatre ans nous raconte son expérience... Pour télécharger l'interview cliquez ici. Read more

Teaching trough heart

Education is a learning process. In many traditional education models, children are forced to learn solely by repetition and test taking. An atmosphere of pressure prevails at the same time with pressure on both the students and teachers to perform. In other systems, however, the emphasis is placed on what's happening inside of the children, teaching them how to connect to their heart and spirit. Children are encouraged to access their own inner voice and communicate from that deep place. Chris, an American teacher, who has taught in different schools in various countries around the world, discusses in the interview some of her experiences teaching with both traditional and alternative methods in oder to find a balance between them in the name of a child.
