Dragonfly Kiss

Dragonfly Kiss

We stepped out of the house into the alley, our visible breath smudged by the wind tunnel. At the base of the steps she pulled a lighter to the menthol gripped in her mouth. The arctic breeze blew away each flame in birthday fashion, so I cupped my hands around hers and our campfire was born.
With her eyes on mine, she pulled and I said “Have you ever had a dragonfly kiss before?”…

The Approach
The crowd lowers their murmurs to a vacant silence as she makes her way up the aisle. Finally. Slowly. Unsure. She tiptoes toward you, feet pumping ice water, carrying flowers like a sacred torch, her arm wrapped around her father’s as he delivers her to you one last time.
You await with the stillness of a photograph in the best suit you’ve ever worn. Breathless. Feet so cold, they’re frozen……

“Hey stranger” to you too
I’ve been super. Thanks for asking.
Hey, did you know there are 100 billion planets in our galaxy?
That’s 12 digits
That’s one digit for every month since you sent your last beacon.
I remember because it was the first winter I’d woken up to the dawn
Instead of you.

Transpersonal Regression by Yuvraj

Every had the feeling of not belonging to this planet ?? Well dont suppress your feeling as Yuvraj Kapadia explains about transpersonal regression. Yuvraj Kapadia is here for 3 days in Auroville to meet with Psychologists and therapists to create sharing. Sigrid had organized a meet for Aurovillians with Yuvraj in order for everyone to get an introduction what is and what can transpersonal regression do for a person. His theory of creation and the cosmos was very intriguing and even if doesn’t necessarily agree with our normal logic but from the psychic sense, there is a lot that Yuvraj had to illuminate within us, a rare treat for students and practicioners of psychology to have a open dialogue with him. A true knowledge bank of all that there exist, he was quite casual in delivering, what would be, life altering facts for some people.
To contact or meet with Yuvraj you can contact Sigrid as she is facilitating him in Auroville as a guest. Also watch out for a exclusive interview with him in the radio to get deeper insights about deeper realms of our being.

Conference de Gilles Boeuf

Biologiste, professeur à l’Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie et professeur au  Collège de France, Gilles Boeuf préside, depuis 2009, le Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle. Expert français en biodiversité auprès de la ministre de l’écologie.

 Gilles Boeuf raconte l’histoire de la vie, ce qu’est la biodiversité et combien nous en avons besoin, puisque nous sommes, nous-mêmes, issus du vivant. Il conte des histoires de Nature, source de beauté et d’harmonie. La Vie est une entreprise, hautement durable depuis 3,8 milliards d’années, et dont nous aurions bien besoin de nous inspirer pour que notre humanité survive. Pour cela, elle devra nécessairement se transformer, individuellement et collectivement. L’évolution de la conscience serait-elle la clé du changement pour arriver à « L’Homme après l’homme » ?
