    The rainbow community in Canada created by our friend NortherSanctuary

    http://flintandjelly.com/~rainbow/index.php











    We are a new forming community intent on creating a spiritual way of
    life consistent with the evolution to a higher level of
    consciousness. We are actively looking for like-minded people to join
    our community. Our efforts began over a year ago with several
    presentations both in Ontario and Quebec.

    The Eco village movement

    By Ross Jackson , Permaculture magazine 40


    " Would it be an exageration to claim that the emergence of the ecovillage movement is the most significant event of the 21st century ? I don't think so "

    Symplifying Life

    A chapter from the book &quot; Nature of human Thought &quot; by Anil K Rajvanshi


    read full article here:
    http://www.nariphaltan.org/simplelife.htm

    I live in a small rural town called Phaltan in district Satara, Maharashtra, India where I run a small NGO called Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute (NARI). We work in the areas of agriculture, renewable energy, animal husbandry and sustainable development.

    My experiments in sustainable living for the last 25 years are as follows:

    I live in a house designed by me and constructed in 1984. It is built of stone with 18” thick walls which allow tremendous thermal lag-time so heating and cooling due to ambient atmospheric temperature is delayed. It is passively cooled in the summer by laying old jute gunny sacs on the roof and sprinkling water on them two times a day. These sacs are very cheap and cost Rs. 10/m2 (1US$ = Rs. 47). The evaporating water from the sacs cools the roof from where 80% of thermal load comes into the house. Thus when the outside temperatures are about 40-450C the house is cool in the afternoon with average temperatures of rooms ranging from 25-300C. This is mostly because of thick walls and cool roof. Besides we also close all the windows and draw the drapes over them so that hot air and radiation from outside does not come inside the house. The trees surrounding the house also help. In a couple of years or so the gunny sacs are worn out because of the salts left behind by the evaporating water. These old gunny sacs are either used as mulch in the garden or burned in our hot water boiler, which supplies water for our daily bath. The water boiler is a grate-type multifuel boiler with about a 10 m long chimney attached to it. This chimney height gives an excellent draught and hence burns the wood and other material quite cleanly. In fact the water boiler is used for burning lots of different things as explained below. The ash from this boiler is used as a fertilizer in our garden either by putting it directly or composting it.

    Phaltan is around 800 m above sea level and is 100 km south-east of Pune or 300 km south-east of Mumbai. Its climate is very mild 109. Still in some years during winters the minimum temperatures can reach 7-8 0C. Our house is not heated. We close the windows at night if needed and wear warm clothes and socks. It keeps us warm and comfortable.

    Cohousing & Ecovillage Development

    At the 2008 Prairie Festival in Salina, Kansas, the director of the Land
    Institute, Wes Jackson, talked about the Institute's plan to
    perennialize grain and legume crops and his call for a 50-year Farm Bill
    as a way to implement that plan. He said that if something is needed
    and possible, it is not grandiose.
    Using Wes's definition as a guide, I would like to share my perspective
    on what is needed in terms of a sustainable culture and ecology and the
    potential of the cohousing and ecovillage movement to fulfill those
    needs. The need is well documented. Both social structures and
    ecological systems have become dangerously fragmented.

    read on:
    Tom (braford@sbcglobal.net), a founder of St. Louis' Culver Way
    Ecovillage and the Eco City USA project, is creating St. Louis' Climate
    Leaders Campaign for the State of the World Forum. This paper is based
    on remarks the author made at the "Surviving Climate Change: Producing
    Less and Enjoying it More" roundtable, June 2008, St. Louis. See http://www.CulverWayCohousing.com,
    http://www.ecocityusa.org, and http://www.worldforum.org.

    Crest 13

    http://www.crest13.org/

    Noosphere II, Planetary Engineering Project. Centers for the Restitution Investigation and Education of the Natural Mind

    "Planets with Noosphere. Planets arrive at this distinction through a final, critical evolutionary stage referred to as biosphere-noosphere transition. Such a transition is always preceded by what appears to be an almost insurmountable crisis ..."

    Due to the global climate change and a world at war, the whole Earth is in an unprecedented crisis, a global emergency. However, this crisis is indicative of a transition to a new and better time, an era of cosmic evolution called the noosphere. To go beyond the emergency, a planetary-scale effort is needed to define a new direction into the future, one that takes into account the nature of the noosphere and its cosmic order of reality.

    The CREST13 is just such a project.

    Combining the purposes of a contemplative center, research base and a sustainable community for exploring and exhibiting a way of life and knowledge expressive of the noosphere – Earth’s mental layer – the CREST13 network is intended to set the stage for the next evolutionary sequence of life on Earth.

    With a minimum of thirteen strategically located centers, the aim of the CREST13 is to creatively explore principles of planetary engineering in the context of the biosphere-noosphere transition. The creation of a global telepathic grid is a principle method of planetary engineering.

    Planetary engineering is a whole system method of crafting solutions for global problems consistent with the perception of the planet as a transformer of cosmic energies operating within a larger (solar-galactic) field of intelligence.

    Providing a cosmic space for meditation and synchronized visualization techniques, the domed architecture of the thirteen centers will facilitate reception and transmission of telepathic information. In this way CREST13 will help precipitate the noosphere.

    All thirteen centers are to be unified by the same daily program of meditation, biopsychic and electromagnetic field practices, and telepathic transmission and reception exercises. Natural mind meditation is the foundation of the CREST13 program.

    Synchronized by the harmonic timing standard of the 13 Moon/28-day calendar, the CREST13 Centers are telepathically connected through ongoing forms of synchronic order practices and disciplines.

    Through research and development, and on-going programs of telepathic investigation, including experiments in two-way extraterrestrial communication, the CREST13 will lay the foundation of the noosphere, its principle project being the completion of the Circumpolar Rainbow Bridge experiment by 21 December 2012.

    In sum, the purpose of the CREST13 (Centers for the Restitution of the Natural Mind) is to establish a planetary telepathic network, a "telepathic safety net," helping Earth in her passage form biospheric crisis into the new evolutionary cycle of the noosphere.

    This is a sustainable community offering continuous events and workshops based on Vancouver Island in the heart of the Cowichan Valley. There are workshops in natural building, permaculture, food production, etc. They also have a guesthouse where you can stay for a reasonable cost varying lengths of time.
