auditorium.jpg Time to celebrate. We have raised the necessary funding to construct the seating for the stone circle auditorium. Thank you to everyone who supported us through donations, meditations, encouragement and sharing of information. Construction will commence after Easter, and you are very welcome to join us for our construction workshop from 22.4.-4-5.

We still need to find some additional funding to install solar panels, and for this we are still collecting donations. Donate.

Greening the Gea Viva site

treeplanting.png In Winter 2013-2014 we planted about 60 fruit trees and 10 olive trees, in addition to the 130 olives on site. The fruit trees form part of a permaculture garden, that is evolving on site. They are all old species from specialist nurseries. To water them during the Summer, we are in the process of construction a rainwater cistern. Around the auditorium, a meditation garden is evolving with indigenous herbs that can tolerate drought.

Encountering nature beings

dracevaluka.png Manuela Kaniški, Hertha Weik and I met in October 2013 for our walking holiday 'Encountering nature beings'. It was a beautiful time of learning, exploration and enjoyment. Here are photos by all of us and Manuela's account of our visit to the Blaca monastery.

Celebrating the power of the heart

geopuncturebrac1.jpg We have realised the first phase of a project on the Gea Viva site: a stone circle that will become an auditorium for outdoor activities and events. An international group of seven artists have created and carved reliefs (cosmogrammes) to the theme 'Celebrating the power of the heart'. This project works as an Earth accupuncture that supports us and nature to unfold our heart qualities. It also helps to transform outdated patterns that are key for humanity and the Earth. The six standing and two lying stones feature fourteen cosmogrammes with aspects of heart qualities. The stone circle is fifteen minutes' walk from Milna on the island Brač and open for visits and events. Thank you to Urša Vidic, Margan D. Kalb, Manuela Kaniški, Annette Frederking, Ingrid Tasch and Ivana Petan for your cooperation. Here are a film, photos and the brochure in English, Croatian and German.

Meditation and Prayer for Syria

forgiveness.jpg Every evening at 21:00 we imagine to meet in the stone circle auditorium 'Celebrating the power of the heart' on the Island Brač. It will be good to anchor our endeavours at this place. Please join in so we have an impact. Perceive one another and all the beings that support our prayer and meditation for peaceful solutions and development in Syria.

If your power lies in prayer, then pray and if you like to meditate, you can follow the following suggestion:

Connect with the heart of the Earth - be part of the heart of the Earth Connect with the heart of the sun - be part of the heart of the sun Connect with the heart of the galaxie's centre- be part of the heart of the centre of the galaxy Connect with the heart of the universe - be part of the heart of the universe

Let the united intelligence of the heart radiate into life, to Syria, its residents and all stakeholders of this conflict, that new visions and manifestations of love evolve. Notice the rays of love and be mindful of the moment when your consciousness and love shall be focussed again in your everyday life.

Follow this suggestion as long as you see fit.

Experiencing Oneness - co-creating synergy living - Geopuncture Project

geopuncturebrac.jpg Our team of 12 (Sabine Engelhardt, Wolfgang A. Tiller, Laissa Kap, Alda Gerchi, Johanna Heer-Weber, Margan Kalb, Martina Mayer, Monika Maierhofer, Andro Nigoevic, Markus Struever, Ursa Vidic and Salvatore Cali) has completed this Geopuncture Stone Circle on the Croatian Island Brac.

To the theme 'Experiencing Oneness - co-creating synergy living' we designed and carved cosmogrammes capturing aspects that are of importance, such as opening one's heart, being connected the Devine, bravely walking through the portals of the future, the wisdom of heaven, reckognising plants and animals as our companions, connecting with the sea and the co-creation between male and female. The stones were carved in September 2012 at Vesna R. Šibić's eco farm in Nerežišća.Thank you to Berenike Albert, Karmit Evenzur, Annette Frederking, Vesna Štekic and Marko Pogacnik for your kind donations.
