CAT on RC in Auroville

Friday 6th October there was a CAT (Creative Auroville Together) gathering on Restorative Circles (RC) in Unity Pavillion, Auroville.
Together with the Cat team we explored what RC can offer us as a community, how do they work and why do we have them.
RC is a community process designed to hold space for those in conflict.
There are 3 stages designed to identify the key factors in the conflict, reach agreements on next steps, and evaluate the results.
As circles form they invite shared power, mutual understanding, self – responsibility and effective action within the community.
The process is voluntary and open to all. Anyone can call a circle, anyone can be named to be invited to a circle and anyone can contact the facilitator and request to be included.
Most of the participants find RC a powerful tool to be used as one of Auroville`s conflict resolution options.
How to call a circle? Send a mail to restorative@auroville.org.in or speak in person to L`aura, Janet, Shanti, Helene or Kati.
Two day regular workshops will be offered (see News and Notes).
Also interesting to know that RC practices development began with the work of Dominic Barker in Rio de Janeiro in the mid 90`s in the favelas and continues with a growing community both in Brazil and internationally

One of the chief functions of the physical mind is to doubt. If you listen to it, it will always find thousand reasons for doubting. But you must know that the physical mind is working in ignorance and full of falsehoods.

How magic happens!

How it feels when you finally ‘realise’ that this is what you’ve been looking for…
On Tuesday, 18th April 2017, SAVI hosted a volunteer presentation in Tibetan Pavillion, two volunteers Jyothirmayee and Mayank, working in “Kenji’s Japanese Carpentry workshop” shared their life experience and how Auroville managed to give them what they have been looking for their whole life. They shared how they managed to deal with all the problems , how they managed to keep their basket full of questions aside and have an empty basket for answers on them. Jyothirmayee told a story how she felt magic happening when her 40 year plan started in like a snap. Mayank shared his love for wood, how they speak to him. After years of struggle inside out, they found something they have been looking for.
All you need to do for yourself is keep cleaning the stream of your flow and to put mind, body and heart in harmony and the magic will happen. This is how one can find that one “thing” they are looking for.
The applaud at the end of each talk spoke how everyone was so deeply touched by their stories.

Art and Culture Workshop

It was a three days workshop organised by Bharat Niwas, it was conducted by artists from SEWA (Self Employed Women Association), Gujarat. They taught people the almost lost art of block printing and tie and dye which was used earlier for cloth printing and now it is getting replaced by screen printing and other techniques. This workshop was to make people know more closely about Indian culture.
A lot of people from all age groups took interest in the workshop.
We had an interview with Seema Majumdar from Darpana Acedmy, Gujarat and she talked about the work they do and how they are taking efforts to educate people about the art and culture of India.
