Open House Sunship

On Saturday, September 30th we were invited for an open house in Sunship. Sunship started as a next step of the Citadines experiment which pioneered an urban collective housing project with a difference.
Originally the aspiration was to do the entire building with contributions from well-wishers . Due to practical reasons, out of the 39 apartments, 20 are to give on a pro bono basis and balance the rest with financial contribution. Sunship is an experiment in a new living, offering compact personal spaces and yet be part of a harmonious collective life. There are also common areas, such as double height terraces, the dining room, laundry and maintenance are taking care for. .. and of course Sunship integrates waste management, waste water treatment, rain water harvesting, solar energy and so on…
In the morning there was a short meditation while we listened to a talk from the mother while playing her organ, followed by a talk of Anu and Louis Cohen. Afterwards we could visit some of the apartments and have a cup of tea. In the afternoon there was an exctract from the show BHU/EARTH directed by Philippe and Thierry.

What is the Low-Tech Lab?

What is the Low-Tech Lab? Is it another business brand using trends such as “sustainable” and “environment friendly” to sell a product, or is this an innovative movement that wants to change the approach to global development?
Considering key words such as “do it yourself”, “local manufacturing”, “low environmental impact”, “economic”, “repairable”, and “for all”, how sustainable and environment friendly are some innovative inventions such as solar panels?
While working on technical solutions, how much do we ease our impact on the environment? Has Low-Tech Lab considered focusing on educating people to be more in tunes with nature?
A brief interview with Clement and Camille from Low-Tech Lab, and Mitia from Joy of Impermanence (Auroville).

Interview with Dr. Sehdev Kumar

An introduction of Kabir’s philosophical poetry by Dr. Sehdev Kumar. Through the tale of the illiterate poet Kabir, we revisit the history and politics of India from the 15th century to the India of today.
The poetry and songs of the people, that has no particular religious attachment nor a cast. Still very popular to this days, Kabir’s poetry remains rich with insight and philosophy.

LFA2017 – 3R

Past Friday LFA2017 has successfully started, and Ribhu and Marc are talking about it.
As Ribhu says “a little campaign” of LFA or Litter Free Auroville 2017 is going on for next almost three weeks with the main purpose to engage the whole community on the topic of our trash. They are trying to center their efforts in the ways how to treat our garbage with the mission to come to the zero waste…
Wastless(educational part), Upcylcing Studio(take care of difficult waste stream) and Eco Service(picking our daily waste) are main players in those efforts, and they are trying to reach integral service, an approach to treat waste.
Marc and Ribhu founded their “heart” in garbage, and are passionately dealing with waste …. on the road of sustainability, which always starts with ourself, on daily basis.

Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we don’t listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They don’t fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.

At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That ‘something’ feels like an echo. It’s the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why it’s important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.

The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.

Affirmation of this week: Echoes from the soul give me insight to what I transmit and receive.
