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.

Sound Bath by Svaram

Svaram is a Musical Instrument Research and Development center that makes innovative musical instruments. The center ‘s creative director is Aurelio (http://www.auroville.org/contents/4021) who believes in the ability of music to transcend spiritual barriers.
According to the people at Svaram, the lowest use of music is merely aesthetic. The second is intellectual and the third and highest is spiritual.
The use of music to heal is an ancient art, and it has been revived here in Auroville.
Using many of their fabulous instruments, the sound bath was literally a flow of harmony and music through the body. Aurelio started by guiding the audience into a state of relaxation. The 50- 60 attendees, some meditating, some laying down to relax, all witnessed the language of pure sound.
The performance was not guided by a temporal harmony, beats and measures, but rather by the sound of sound itself. The whole body was a large ear.
To know more, give them a listen. Live, if possible.

Bantu Ubuntu at the Youth Centre

United Nations International Youth Day is three weeks from now, but the young volunteers of Auroville have come together to express their emotions, as logical and physical and imperfection; in the triangle which is “Be creative, Be conscious and Be sharing in the Peaceful City (the Youth Centre of Auroville)”.

Samy, a Rwandan student is currently a volunteer at the Youth Centre,  and the Tree house Community. He has been a part of Auroville community for two years now and is seeking a transformation of the Human heart. He has initiated a three day fundraising event for his safari(journey) on the way back to his home country, during which he will be doing research on “What is the relation between drums and humans” and “Dance movement therapy”.

Samy says, Bantu Ubuntu is the language of Humankind in Zulu and therefore has taken it as an agenda for this event mainly to symbolize human relations and transformation, like a rhythm of drums.

A pizza night, bonfire, candle crafting, macrame, body psychology workshop, Korean dinner with kimpap and isombe from Rwanda were all part of this spectacular summer monsoon – Bantu Ubuntu Infinity.

“Integration, togetherness, coordination, expression and engagement of the youth in the various societal activities would definitely bring peace and harmony to the world we live”.
