We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming….
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging … because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her …

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah…..

The integral Yoga is so called because it aims at a harmonised totality of spiritual realisation and experience. Its aim is integral experience of the Divine Reality, what the Gita describes in the words samagram mam, “the whole Me” of the Divine Being. Its method is an integral opening of the whole consciousness, mind, heart, life, will, body to that Reality, to the Divine Existence, Consciousness, Beatitude, to its being and its integral transformation of the whole nature.

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).
