What is Petra?

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.

All My Sons

Thie weekend (5th, 6th, 7th) Auroville Theatre Group presents Arturh Miller’s play All My Sons at CRIPA’s garden in Kalabhumi.
The play is Miller’s first great play about family, ethics, money, and love.
Being set at the back of CRIPA, and story is going on at the backyard of family’s house in Ohio, to audience brings a certain intimacy , closeness to the family, and involvement to the story.
Despite that is set in years after War II , play does draw the parallel on what is going on at the moment on the planet, and we can easily translate it in every day situations, where the question of responsibility of conscious choice play a vital role.
Amazing acting of Swar, Jill, Shilpi, Vinu Karthick, Nishant Saini, Ahmed, Myrta, Manjula Selvam, Satyendra Kumar, Satish T; under the direction of Jill.
All the actors, regardless being old “cats” or new ones, proved their acting maturity.

Invitation to a Play

Tonight 5th, tomorrow 6th and after tomorrow 7th May at 7:30 pm at CRIPA Garden (behind CRIPA), Kalabhumi.The Auroville Theatre Group presents All My Sons by Arthur Miller, directed by Jill, the creative director of AV Theatre Group.

This morning we hosted Jill and one of the actors in the play, Nishant Saini in our studio, and the conversation was going on around the play, and Nishant experiences.
Among others Jill on the question of relevance of the play to Auroville says, that she has chosen this play to be reminded on “our share of responsibility … or what could happened, or what are the consequences of not thinking through …”

All My Sons by Arthur Miller is directed by Jill , and we will see on the stage Swar, Jill, Shilpi, Vinu Karthick, Nishant Saini, Ahmed, Myrta, Manjula Selvam, Satyendra Kumar, Satish T.

LFA2017 Trashion Show

This year campaign of Litter Free Auroville was to bring the community together , to look at our trash. And we might not have done it in big scale past few weeks, but surely Trashion Show brought most of us into Visitor’s Centre.
We were dazzled, amazed by creation , a transformation of material  which in other circumstances might be considered as a  trash, yet we saw wonderful “high cotoure” design of individuals and units.
Auroville has witnessed this kind of transformation 7 years back, and after intensive work of Wastelss, Upcycling Studio and Eco Service….was about time to be reminded again that the attitude we have to our trash matters.

On the stage we saw many models of all ages, some even designers of the dress that was worn.
Before the beginning of Trahsion Show Unicorn Collective shared a dance of a giant couple(puppets), and recycling rap group tuned us into the show.
For uplifted spirit of the event we can also thank unstoppable Jesse as MC , and Matthia in charge of sound.

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.
