This is ABOUT: a PhD on Social Innovation in India, Community Engagement, studying, teaching, travels, a spiritual journey... sharing info in a non-judgmental way, non doctrinal yet giving opinions; exchanging experiences, inspiring stories, musics...
Writing is for me cathartic so forgive the length, highlights on top tips, links to further travelling info (Humano Ventures), spirituality...personal development, consulting (Irribizia); In ENGLISH mostly et en FRANCAIS aussi (plus personnel)
with a uke, a guitar and a few beers, it felt good.
Left a postcard for the community I was in for 1 month.
know if it is because "Thank you" is not really used in Tamil or
Malayalam, but I never heard it from the people in that community, Aspiration, the oldest one in Auroville. It felt to me that they took the the work and
commitment to the community garden they asked us to build, as well as the "Parents day" I organized in the end to hand over the whole garden of 500m2 for granted.
Felt a bit weird but
it does not matter in the end, I thanked them myself to have given me an
opportunity to work selflessly and learn so much about
permaculture, organic gardening, farming project management.
While doing so, meeting great people:
the enthusiastic students I worked with, from an agronomic engineering school in
France, the experts of various farms in Auroville, random experts passing by on
nutrition, organic experiences in India... who shared their passion, their experience
with so much love, that it really touched me.
believe that if I act myself with gratitude, valuing the time I spend with people,
acting with generosity, politeness and respect there are more chances
that people will do the same...
By doing I feel I value myself, the time and things I do with people... who I am, who I want to be.
these are the energies I want to surround myself with.
uke, some percussions, a guitar...
lots of nice memories to share, nothing to regret!
