KALVI – Our Story

KALVI (Education in Tamil) was created by a group of educators engaged with Integral Education in Auroville. The unit focuses on researching and implementing games and activities for didactic purposes. These games/activities are designed to nurture a child’s inner awareness. KALVI is presently exploring and researching “Aurogames”, educational games developed by Auroculture. She arrived at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, in 1971, and moved to Auroville in the mid 1990s. She was asked by the Mother to create educational games, which she called “Aurogames”. Auroculture has given KALVI “Aurogames” to use and expand upon. KALVI 's imminent plan is to develop educational materials to expand the six faculties of consciousness (thinking, seeing, hearing, speaking, vital and body). To make this work happen any support is greatly appreciated. Please visit www.facebook.com/Kalvi-Auroville-246577842371218 Or contact kalvi@auroville.org.in

The Manifestation of the Art Dome

A conversational interview between Sankalpa: Art Journeys intern Marichelle Gurski (US) and architect Peter A. (German Aurovilian) on his philosophy behind creating the double-dome structure of the Sankalpa Art Center. Sankalpa is sub-unit of Thamarai, including the center located behind Tibetan Pavilion in the International Zone and the Art Cart parked at Visitor's Center. Sankalpa provides the community with creative spaces for transformation of both inner and outer worlds, by breaking down the barriers that inhibit self-expression, making art accessible to all, and facilitating human unity through art.

This is an open dialogue about Peter's journey to Auroville where he found a fascination with geodesic domes and their application in the community. We are given a rare glimpse into the wisdom of the stories he has to tell and how the structure of these domes bring people together.

Exploring Democratic Classrooms

Heidi Watts and Chris Sperry explored the concept of democratic classrooms over decades in different types of schools in the United States. Democratic schools encourage students to make their own decisions as a student community. This practice cultivates student ownership and student responsibility. In Auroville's Teacher Center both, teachers and parents discussed the chances and challenges as well as opportunities and limits to student decisions. The final conclusion: Let's meet again on that topic!

Auro and Auroville

Yesterday's interactive session on exploration of full scholarship opportunities for further study at Auro University in Surat, Gujarat, and possible exchange between Auro and Auroville schools, and projects alike, brought another possibility for our children who might wish to continue with their academic education. The vision and mission of Auro University is based on the principles of Integral Education, and the ideals of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. The session was facilitated by Chali, Lalit, Gijs and Mike, with Anoop from Auro University also present. As part of the information sharing we were assured that all students from Auroville Schools, even those who are not graded or given a 'recognized' high school diploma, will have an equal opportunity to enroll in a chosen program https://www.aurouniversity.edu.in/

Marco speaking on Tai-Chi-Chuan

Marco and Krishna offered a valuable workshop for beginners in Tai-Chi-Chuan. The workshop was held at the famous Tai-Chi hall in Sharanga community, in Auroville. The workshop attracted guest and residents of Auroville. The workshop was conducted for 18 days for 3 hours session each morning. One half of the session were dedicated for mediation and Chi techniques and the other half for learning and practicing the 24-forms of Tai-Chi. In an incredible module of teaching, Marco shared his knowledge and guided the students with a masters touch and was very gentle yet vigilant for people's slightest of errors. The workshop was an insight not only to learning of the method but an understanding of Chi which exist in and outside our body, which the Chinese referred to as vital force behind each movement. The Tai-Chi school offers its space every morning throughout the week for people to come and practice Tai-Chi with the masters. Such workshops are unique and life changing for some, as the students attending the workshop give their sharing of experience about the workshop at the end of the interview with Marco. Auroville is truly at the receiving end of a gift the Tai-Chi school and masters like Marco represent.
