CAT on Our City and Planning


Yesterday we had a chance to participate in first CAT - Create Auroville Goether initiative by RAS.
CAT supposed to be is a collaborative space to move together from a relative stagnant system to a culture that unleashes our creative energies.
CAT is a springboard for the future and let Auroville build us.
CAT is a Space to respond with discernment, respect and in a spirit of collaboration instead of reacting to issues based on likes, dislikes.

Yesterday's topics were
THE CITY WE FORGOT...
Auroville is a dream for all humanity. It does not look like other cities, has different priorities. It was designed to change us and change life. How did the city happen and why does it wait to be realized? - An exploration with Anu
and
THE CITY WE DIDN’T FORGET!
Reflections – subjective & objective & practical – in ways the city is pushing to manifest itself, despite us - With Tim, Judith, Helmut, Toine

Purpose of Pyramids


The Eastern European Group of International Zone presented Dr. Sam Osmanagic with his talk on Bosnian Pyramids and Their Effect on Consciousness and Health.
We were honored to hear a very interesting presentation of Dr. Osmanagic not only on Bosnian Pyramids but on pyramids in general , focusing on their properties, and on What was the real purpose that they were built.
Further his discovery project of pyramids of sun in Visoko has expanded into much more - new socially paradigm of highly evolved spiritual being which does share, and try to overcome over 7000 years "monoply" of elites.

Matrimandir interviews/Karma yoga

The first day of working in AV radio for community service we went to Matrimandir to ask a few people about working in Matrimandir. Positivity filled the air.

Luciana Camargo

Past week vibrant and energetic Luciana gracefully shared with the community workshop of Samba de Roda.
In conversation with her we find out how she has found the way to   Auroville which is the reflection of who she is, the life she lives, her life path .... in journey through India she connected with Samuka da India, capoeirsta here in Auroville, and one lead to another .... What is samba, what is capoeira... music, rhythm, life energy, awareness, freedom....

as one of capoeira songs says ... "the capoeirsta is somebody who brings smile on his face, the ginga (swing) on his body, and the samba on his feet"...
