Celestine is one of Auroville’s early artist pioneers in the field of re cycled art. Now she is focusing on what she calls “Road Art”. She is deeply passionate about this and has composed some beautiful poems on the subject.

Jean Francois Noubel leads a special gathering at the Unity Pavillion sharing his knowledge, ideas and experience about moving to an Integral Economy.
Now we need to take a deep breath and explore ways to start, to begin, this evolutionary and spiritually economic shift here in Auroville, then the world.
On Thursday the 12th Janurary 2017 Jean-Francois Noubel shared his insights, knowledge and experiences about the implementation of “The Gift Economy” and about the power and necessity of “Collective Evolution” with many helpful pointers and tools.
His approach was so inspiring and perfect for the need of the moment, prioritizing the utmost importance on bringing silence and presence into all of our daily interactions.

The Participating Aurovilians got a treat this christmas when Nipus, whose name literally means Rishi, talking about ‘Gift Economy’. As Nipun suggests, we have many kinds of capital amount, to trade and deal in, money need not be the only option. Nipun along with his wife and brother started an organization, leading successfully in the world, ‘Service Space’.
The core principles of this organization are:
1. Totally volunteer operated
2. No fund-raising
3. Focus on small
He emphasis on the point of positive volition is what is required to create the desired ripple effect. When we create the correct atmosphere, the desired mind set within society can be achieved. The meet ended with a BIG group hug and people signing up for the 21 day kindness challenge. Smile cards and other positive symbols where distributed amongst Auroville as a gesture of love, for all of us to Pay-It-Forward.
