Auroville Information Session on August 19 

sl_amphitheatre_auroville.jpg

Since 1968, an experimental city has been under construction outside Chennai, India. A city controlled by no nation, where spirituality takes precedence, and education is holistic; a city dedicated to expanding consciousness and realizing human unity. It’s called Auroville, and was envisioned by spiritual teacher and guide Mirra Alfassa, also known as “The Mother.” Alfassa worked closely with Sri Aurobindo, whose teachings and philosophy are foundational to Auroville. The fundamental idea behind the city is that human evolution is ongoing, and we are responsible for ushering it forward. Auroville seeks to position itself at the forefront of human progress by focusing on renewable energy, organic farming, permaculture, and peaceful living. It’s a massively ambitious project that has been in development since 1968 and needs support to sustain itself. That’s why on August 19 from 7:30-10pm, the Woodstock Community Center will host an information session on Auroville. A number of residents and representatives from Auroville will answer questions about the project and share photos and news of its development. Aviusa.org; (845) 679-5358.

  • Clarkson’s Beacon Institute Is Moving to Its New Home at Dennings Point This Month

    For over a decade, Clarkson University’s Beacon Institute has been a mainstay of downtown Beacon. From its location on Main Street, the Institute has become a leading voice in research into healthy water solutions in the region and has been an important local resource for STEM-driven educational programs for K-12 students, families, and the public alike. This June marks a major milestone for the growth of the Institute, as it officially relocates just a few miles south to Dennings Point—a scenic 64-acre peninsula that juts into the Hudson River and is part of the Hudson Highlands State Park.
