Ilhaam Project

ILHAAM is a fruit of an improbable encounter of an Israeli & Franco Lebanese. This meeting happened on a travelling circus for peace between Israel & Palestine. They combine world/pop/soul from their own kind with quantum electronics. The distinctive voice of Nina & the musicality of her partner Omri (multi-instrumentalist, beatbox, voice) create a sound that inspire us to dream & revolutionize our listening habits.

Sound produced and recorded by Joel

A Film on Pygmies from Bwindi

Documentary –

* FOG OF BWINDI

Uganda, 2015, Dir. Anna Bohlmark, 25 minutes, Documentary, English with English subtitles, Rated: G

For thousands of years the Batwa (a pygmy tribe) lived in harmony with the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi forest, south Western part of Uganda. In 1991, when the Bwindi forest became a world heritage, the pygmies were forcefully evacuated from the forest to leave space for the endangered gorillas. The mountain gorillas have become one of Africa´s biggest tourist attractions. But what happened to the Batwas?

This documentary give a frightening insight in a society that places economic interests above all others including human dignity.

Synthesis of Yoga Part 1 Chapter 5

Beginning on page 144 The Ascent of the Sacrifice – 1 continues through page 150. In this section, Sri Aurobindo states : “… This then is the true relation between divine and human knowledge; it is not a separation into disparate fields, sacred and profane …but the character of the consciousness behind the working.”

He continues further: ” … It is one of the decisive moments of the integral Yoga when the psychic being, liberated, brought out from the veil to the front, can pour the full flood of its divinations, seeings and impulsions on the mind, life and body of man and begins to prepare the upbuilding of divinity in the earthly nature.”
