Annette Frederking created a wonderful new cosmogramme for the Stone circle auditorium

giving-receiving.jpg "Giving and Receiving: In our time a lot of suffering arises due to egotistical, aggressive and unbalanced taking. This cosmogramme gives an impulse for the interplay of giving and receiving. It strengthens our trust, that we receive all we require and shows the fullfillment that lies in giving."

Drystone walling workshop 23th-24th May


Led by Filip Bubalo from the NGO Dragodid, fifteen of us took to renewing the drystone walling around the stone circle auditorium at the Gea Viva site. We built a retaining wall and seating completely without mortar! Pupils from the school in Milna joined us for a few hours to learn about this traditional and ecological technique that forms part of Croatia's heritage. Pictures Here is more information about Dragodid in Croatian and the post on the school's website.

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 It also helps to transform outdated patterns that are key for humanity and the Earth.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.
