Julia’s Smile

Book for children of all ages, written by Noel Parent, and read by Marlenka. "...There once was magical land called Ayelen, where everyone smiled all the time. They smiled while they worked, they smiled while they played, they smiled when it was sunny, they smiled when it rained. They even smiled while they were sleeping!...."

The After Meeting Interview

The Mentor Pool Meeting

On Saturday the 18th of November 2017, at the Tibetan Pavilion, there was an information sharing meeting on the updated entry process.
The main focus of this session was an update on the changes to the new entry process and their impact on New Comers and Mentors.
One of the changes to the entry process is the launching of Yucca, a three days introduction to Auroville for people interested in applying as New Comers. The first session of Yucca will take place between the 23rd and the 25th of November.
The main topic of the meeting was the importance of the involvement of mentors, and it was discussed that more Aurovillians are urged to step forward and offer themselves as mentors.

Adishakti`s Hindu Nov 2017 Fest Tour by Lail Arad and JF Robitaille

A guitar, two voices, a handful of songs, a warmly lit theater, good acoustics, and a welcoming audience are all it takes for an intimate successful evening show. As I enter the candle lit area, I feel as though I am coming home to a warm and wordly nest settled in a flourishing garden. Adishakti is a beautiful  place. Lail Arad (London) and JF Robitaille (Montreal) brought their "We Got It Coming" Tour presented by the Hindu Nov 2017 Fest to Adishakti tonight. These artists and so much more theater is hidden between Pondicherry and Auroville. They set in with a Simon & Garfunkel song, "Hello Darkness, My Old Friend", which sounds quite funny and right to the point at 7 pm. Short songs followed - as individuals and as a duo - such as "We Got It Coming", some of the old masterpieces from Joni Mitchel, Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice It's All Right", Smokey Robinson's "You Got A Hold On Me", and Leonard Cohen's "Bird On A Wire" - all performed with artistry, beauty and wit. Thank you so much. I can't wait to see the weekly Adishakti Happenings next February 2018. So long, Adishakti!

It's the most vague and complicated thing in any of our lives. In fact, it's so convoluted, no one even bothers defining it; they just sprinkle it anywhere it's convenient. We all speak the language, but no one knows what they're saying. It’s like an argument waiting to happen...
