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.

Auroville Papers

Much more than paper, Auroville Papers is a unit that works as a team where there is no hierarchy, but only friendship and sharing of creativity and responsibility. They work in true Auroville spirit.
This is one of the units that started in the early times when conditions were difficult, but nevertheless in time they have expanded and improved their work.
With the recent change of economy, Auroville Papers had to adapt, and this pushed the team to be more innovative. Now not only do they produce aesthetic stationery, but they have also extended their repertoire to include all sorts of handicrafts, such as: earrings, door screens, a large variety of decorative items, and also some art work. One item that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful sculpture of a white unicorn (see our video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW332od3KA). I felt like I had just walked into an art gallery rather than a paper factory.
Because of the economic change Luisa remarked that we cannot be passive. We always need to be challenged in life if we want to keep ourselves well and active, and stay awaken. It is a work of challenges and creativity says Jean Jaques.
These words reminded me that “all life is Yoga”.

At the interview we have Jean Jaques, Herve’,and Luisa

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.
