In June 2013 Gea Viva Team created a stone circle with the theme "Honouring the power of the heart". We designed and carved thirteen reliefs (cosmogrammes) that eplore how to create a more mindful culture that brings humankind in harmony with the earth and each other. This work is based on the ancient science of geomancy, the Western equivalent of Feng Shui and works as an earth acupuncture. Through this visitors can deepen their relationship with the earth, their inner self and the community.
In January 2014. we have successfully completed crowdfunding campaign on Ulule platform with the desire and aim to transform the stone circle in to unique event space in nature - a stone circle auditorium.
This video was made at a building workshop attended by over twenty people from Croatia, Slovenia, Germany and the UK who opened their hearts and got their hands dirty to build the stone circle auditorium. A big thank you to the volunteers: Sabine von Holten, Danijel Golobic, Marina Petrovic, Ina Rose, Goranka Pagon, Stipe Pavlovic, Ante, Tihomir, Ina Rose, Gabrijela Zec, Josip, Josip Paskov, Mojca Cerovsek, Primoz Leben, Damir Mitrakovic, Sandra Remetin, Sibila Kara, Emil Mraz, Branko, Dorijan and Volker Sieber! We have done a great job!
The four rows of seating for the stone circle auditorium are finished and ducts for electricity are in place! We enjoyed each other's company, learning and working with the famous Brač stone using traditional techniques. The experienced craftsman Mario Pavlovic of Contemplor d.o.o. was our teacher and did a wonderful job.
Every morning we had a geomantic meditation, celebrated Beltaine and took a trip to the Dragon's cave.
We are very grateful to you all who made this possible. Together we shared and created moments when we all felt and knew that we are part of something bigger, stronger, wiser..... than ourselfves. Moments "written" on our soul, body, in space of auditorium and on beautiful landscape of Brac. Moments worth remembering and sharing further and beyond.
