Know Your Rhythm

It all begins with a conversation of improvised rhythms between Arnab and Gino at Sangam Hall, Savitri Bhavan.
Arnab B. Chowdhury shares a few thoughts, rhythms and motifs from his training programme – ‘Know Your Rhythm’ that helps participants discover musicality, their own sense of rhythm.
Through immersive exercises in a spirit of self-culture and joy, ‘Know Your Rhythm’ creates conditions for participants to experienc Aha! Moments both as individual and a member of the collective. He believes that these Aha! Moments are like opening windows towards Transformation.
In Auroville, ‘Know Your Rhythm’ (KYR) has been presented to a variety of audiences such as teachers from different schools of Auroville, Tamil Nadu government officials at Sustainable Livelihood Institute, Dakshina Chanting Group, young participants of Swadharma semester programme.
KYR was held as a Pre-Congress Seminar for therapists and medical practitioners at the 14th World Congress for Music Therapy at Vienna (2014) and presented as a research project at the 4th Conference of International Association for Music and Medicine at Beijing (2016).
Arnab is a composer-musician-trainer and a third generation from a family of Indian Classical musicians based out of Sri Aurobindo Ashram. He grew up and studied at the Ashram School and his programme is inspired by Integral Education and the paradigms of Music.

Above all the complication of so-called human wisdom there is the luminous simplicity of the Divine Grace ready to act if we allow it to act. Life could be quite simple and easy if man’s mind did not introduce in it so many useless complications.

In 2016, the forecast calls for the greatest number of Eta Aquarid meteors to light up the predawn darkness on May 5 and 6. It should be a good year for this shower, with the May 6 new moon guaranteeing deliciously dark skies for the 2016 Eta Aquarids. This shower favors the Southern Hemisphere, ranking as one of the finest showers of the year. At mid-northern latitudes, these meteors don’t fall so abundantly, though mid-northern meteor watchers will catch some, too, and might be lucky enough to catch an earthgrazer – a bright, long-lasting meteor that travels horizontally across the sky – before dawn. The Eta Aquarids are mainly a predawn shower. Follow the links below to learn more about the Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

Wideness and calmness are the foundation of the yogic consciousness and the best condition for inner growth and experience. If a wide calm can be established in the physical consciousness, occupying and filling the very body and all its cells, that can become the basis for its transformation; in fact, without this wideness and calmness the transformation is hardly possible.
