GM – Pump house and Youth Hive

On the 13th November 2017 a general meeting was held at the Unity Pavillion to try to resolve the issue between The Pump House community, The Youth Hive Project and Poppo.
The feeling from the meeting was the need in AV for the individual to get out of the way for the greater good, this is extremely important on an inner level too, so the Impersonal Consciousness can manifest into the physical realm, being intensely radiated through all sincere participants here in this divine experiment called Auroville.

Open House Sunship

On Saturday, September 30th we were invited for an open house in Sunship. Sunship started as a next step of the Citadines experiment which pioneered an urban collective housing project with a difference.
Originally the aspiration was to do the entire building with contributions from well-wishers . Due to practical reasons, out of the 39 apartments, 20 are to give on a pro bono basis and balance the rest with financial contribution. Sunship is an experiment in a new living, offering compact personal spaces and yet be part of a harmonious collective life. There are also common areas, such as double height terraces, the dining room, laundry and maintenance are taking care for. .. and of course Sunship integrates waste management, waste water treatment, rain water harvesting, solar energy and so on…
In the morning there was a short meditation while we listened to a talk from the mother while playing her organ, followed by a talk of Anu and Louis Cohen. Afterwards we could visit some of the apartments and have a cup of tea. In the afternoon there was an exctract from the show BHU/EARTH directed by Philippe and Thierry.

Sustainability with Hemp

Controversial, yet very hot topic on use of hemp or cannabis (marihuana) …was in the spotlight  of today’s interview with Viki Vaurora and Deblina Chowdhury. Fighting with his own illness,  Vicki got across with medicinal properties of cannabis, and amazed by results he dive into the topic. In 2014 The Great Legalization Movement was established, and along with others Viki also initiated Indian Hemp Research Institute which is in process to be supported by Indian government. However both, Deblina and Viki do see sustainability of the country in the use of industrial hemp which versatility could replace many materials , from our homes, clothing, food, to bio plastic, and fuel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
Hemp or industrial hemp (from Old English
hænep) typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.[6] Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content
