Aurora's Eye


For Serena to be in Auroville it is a privilege. She "stumble" upon it on her journey all over the planet looking for intentional communities, searching for alternative, more truer lifestyle. And every community she has stopped, she would made a video which was donated to the members of it.
And how she ended here, in Auroville? As Serena laugh it off - the decision was made for her, she just went with the flow.... and The Mother Dream was also hers.
And now she make herself rather busy capturing "Glimpses of Auroville", where she is documenting, creating a bridge, creating highlights as we are quite fast approaching 50th anniversary. (and by the way, the OutreachMedia is in need of video makers, photographers, writers for the occasion).

Amongst so many other things, Serena recently initiate RAK - Random Act of Kindness, whereby group of people visit services and units and spread hugs, joy, smiles.....

17 young participants from different parts of India participated in Swadharma #3, and following program is heartful presentation of each of them. What they have discovered in 5 weeks of intensive research, journey which connected their inner selves to outer reality, and their true potentials. Among all interesting presentations poems were recited, and song sung.



The Swadharma program is a response to the call for an education for our times. It offers young seekers – age 18 to 28 – the opportunity to embark on a transformative learning adventure with the goal of self-discovery. The program is based on the idea that helping young people discover who they are and what brings them alive is not only meaningful at an individual level, but also essential for building a socially just, environmentally sustainable and consciously awakened future.

Welcome to ‘A Library Of Things’

Alot - A Library Of Things is an initiative taken by Earth&Us, which is an Auroville unit working as sustainability consultants and resource management experts.
We tend to own a lot of things but seldom use all of the things we possess, resulting in clutter in our cupboards and our lives. We want to possess and store things to satisfy the impatience of having things readily available for our use, even it is just a one time use.
Earth&Us have come up with a solution. Alot, which acts as library of things, literally. The idea is to have collective archive of tools and products which can be accessed by the community and returned back to the library, making it readily available for others to re-use. This takes away the huge burden of purchasing, storing and maintaining a lot of our things. Imagine buying a drilling machine, to put few shelves and not finding a need for it for next few years or the toys the children get bored of faster than even seasons can change. Mass consumptions demands mass production and ultimately causes mass destruction of our natural resources. The library of things poses as a hope of not only giving respect to the great tools we invent but also paves way for a community to come closer and relate to each other through the service of sharing. This is an innovative concept which will of course go through its teething process and as a progressive community, who encourages collective sharing, we must take initiative to support this new venture, which promises to bring abundance and a joy of sharing in our lives.

CAT on Our City and Planning


Yesterday we had a chance to participate in first CAT - Create Auroville Goether initiative by RAS.
CAT supposed to be is a collaborative space to move together from a relative stagnant system to a culture that unleashes our creative energies.
CAT is a springboard for the future and let Auroville build us.
CAT is a Space to respond with discernment, respect and in a spirit of collaboration instead of reacting to issues based on likes, dislikes.

Yesterday's topics were
THE CITY WE FORGOT...
Auroville is a dream for all humanity. It does not look like other cities, has different priorities. It was designed to change us and change life. How did the city happen and why does it wait to be realized? - An exploration with Anu
and
THE CITY WE DIDN’T FORGET!
Reflections – subjective & objective & practical – in ways the city is pushing to manifest itself, despite us - With Tim, Judith, Helmut, Toine

Book Which Sees the Future


Since Prof. Makarand Paranjabi was very inspired by Anu's book he has received by Anu last month, he decided to return to Auroville and talk about it, and about the future.

Yesterday it was lively discussion regarding Anu Majuda's Book - Auroville: A City for the Future at Bhumika Hall in Sri Aurobindo Centre for Studies - India and the World in Bharat Nivas.

In conversation with Makarand were Suryamayi, Deepti, Bill, Aster, and others in the presence of Anu, herself.

The Land Under the Skin


Joyful Circe has payed visit to our studio, and with her we share a conversation which lead from her e childhood spent in Auroville to her music.
Memories of a child growing in a city with red earth, and special energy of the space .... which keeps calling one back.
Circe remembers an Auroville in her childhood very different .." simpler, smaller, and yet distances bigger.. a deep feeling , a sense of one's freedom. Everything was slow, but real...." shares with enthusiasm .
Since her professional path is music, Circe shares some tracks with us, and you can her them spread the interview.

What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming....
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging ... because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
