Every Friday we get together to watch a film with themes that relate to Sadhana Forest. These can be films about environment, natural history, social issues, etc.
We open this evening to guests and welcome anyone that would like to share this evening with us. Reservations are not required. We provide a free shuttle bus from the center of Auroville to Sadhana Forest and back. Before the featured film we have a tour of the project, explaining the project’s mission, achievements, challenges, and future aspirations.
After the film we provide a vegan, organic dinner free of charge. This evening is given as a gift. To read more about why we don't charge for activities such as these go to: "Gift Economy".
