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.

Marc Vella – Caravane Amoureuse en Ethiopie
Documentaire et Discussion avec Antoine, un participant de la Caravane.
En trente ans, le pianiste nomade Marc Vella a parcouru avec son piano à queue plus de 200 000 km sur les routes et chemins de plus de quarante pays pour célébrer lhumain.
Concepteur de la Caravane Amoureuse, il emmène avec lui des personnes pour dire “je t’aime” aux autres et “conquérir amoureusement” leur cur et leur âme.
En 2013, grâce à l’enthousiasme de plusieurs Auroviliens, une Caravane quittait Auroville pour un périple en Inde du sud.
En novembre 2015, la Caravane partait en Ethiopie. Des hauts plateaux au sud profond dans la «Vallée de l’Omo», l’un des derniers endroits au monde où des peuples vivent encore selon leurs traditions ancestrales, un voyage musical et une rencontre stupéfiante entre cultures africaines et occidentales au cur de l’Éthiopie.

A jam session with no ambition, but just for the joy of playing together exploring various styles. The main objective of the night was being together and having fun. Audrie sang and played the flute. Joel on bass, Philippe on guitar. Francois played on clarinet, on violin and an a self made string instrument similar to a medieval guitar. Gino on percussion.
