    Travel Journal from India Auroville, India | Thu Mar 11, 2010

    Well, today we spent the day in a shared program with Pondicherry University, hearing presentations from students in their Sustainable Development Masters Program, giving our own, and creating dialogue between our two programs.

  • Farming, a Forest and Farewell...

    Travel Journal from India Auroville, India | Fri Apr 10, 2009

      A good portion of our seminars have been led by an member of the Auroville community coming to teach us what they know well.  We have greatly enjoyed nearly all of the scheduled guest speakers, and even ones which were not planned.  The week before we left for the "big travel," an United States of American guy named Theo offered to come and talk to our group about Sri Aurobindo …
