THE PERMACULTURE APPROACH AT THE COAT CREN CENTRE

A little history

Our values, our sincere commitment to respect and union, to live and welcome you in a privileged and consecrated place, brought us to Coat Cren. This Oasis is a jewel box of energetic autonomy, the result of Permacol and Vedic reflection.

 

The word Permaculture was originally coined by Bill Mollison and David Holgrem in the 1970s to describe an evolutionary and integrated system of perennial, self-perpetuating plants and animal species useful to humans.

A more current definition of permaculture that reflects its broader scope is :

A methodology for the conscious design of landscapes that mimic the patterns and relationships observed in nature, aiming to achieve abundant food production, balances between habitats, people and all forms of life.

" Here is a majestically expressed environment that illustrates and condenses what we have spent 10 years researching and maturing. This jewel box of preserved nature is the expression of a connection and an unshakeable reverence to Mother Earth." Indra

We offer you through the knowledge and passion of Ivan Houssay, a model of Earth/Man symbiosis, the heart of a permaculture vision of permanence and sustainability.

Permaculture Ethics :

Ethics has generally been treated according to three main axioms or principles:

Caring for the land (soil, forests and water)

Caring for people (oneself, one's loved ones and the community)

Share fairly (limit consumption and reproduction, redistribute surpluses)

The 5 elements in balance at the Centre

WATER

"Gaṅge ca yamune caiva / godāvari sarasvati
narmade sindhu kāveri / jale'smin sannidhiṃ kuru"

Born of a long journey into the heart of the forest, the Source reveals itself at the edge of the wood.

The Vedic Centre is entirely spring-fed, we are not connected to the public water supply. You will bathe in a pool of spring water and its keeper will bless you.

 

Like our internal waters to remind us that we are more than 70% water as adults.

To remember its inestimable value, to remember to connect to the waters of the world.

Whether fresh (3%) or salt water on the planet, the water cycle links us all. Could it also be that which unites us throughout the cosmos. Even present in the intersidereal space !!! Masaru EMOTO, water would be the medium of information through the cosmos.

 

At the Coat Cren Vedic Centre, we have the invaluable opportunity to connect with water, the water from the spring at the edge of the wood, offered to us as a gift from heaven and earth. It is preserved thanks to the surrounding agricultural practices in organic farming for over 5 years.

 

From the spring, to the wet meadow glistening under the sun, to the ponds and small lakes, the wave flows, creeps, runs, sings and murmurs its soft crystalline melody. It is the free expression ground of a rich and varied plant and animal life.

The diversity of the bioindicator species encountered (salamander, newt, etc.) undoubtedly bears witness to the quality of this preserved environment.

FIRE

"Agnaye svāha, Agnaye Idaṃ Na Mama"

It warms us up.

It is the fire of Life, of digestion, of cremations.

It is brought to us by the surrounding forest.

The entire estate is heated with wood. A heating network distributes the heat generated by the boiler tothe different areas, using wood chips from the 200 hectare sustainable forest that surrounds us.

The majestic fireplaces offer contact with the open fire, the flame, the crackling and accentuate the sweetness of days by the fire or lively evenings.

 

The sun comes to support and thanks to the thermal solar panels bring the precious calories that heat the water of the pool and your showers.

EARTH

"Pṛthvī tvayā dhrtā lokāḥ / devi tvaṃ viṣṇunā dhṛtā
tvaṃ ca dhāraya māṃ devi / pavitraṃ kuru cāsanam"

The estate's 7 hilly hectares are divided between meadows, woods, wetlands, pond and gardens.

They will be able to offer you spaces for wandering and meditation in a generous Nature, preserved to the support during your stay. Your senses will be nourished by these spaces. Your eyes will be able to lose themselves in the horizon or marvel at the perfection of a flower, a moss, a majestic tree.

The gardens

They offer a variety for the pleasure of strolling, meditating, putting your hands in the earth. Rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, fruit trees in the orchard and on the embankments. 

The vegetable garden gradually takes its place and adds to the Centre the delicacies that will brighten up our meals.

To connect ourselves even more deeply to the rhythms and magic of the cycles of life, to the sacred symbioses.

They offer the nourishment, in addition to the teachings and practices provided, that make us feel full, complete and connected.

The vegetables come from organic seeds and plants.

They are used in salads and ready-made meals that delight our taste buds.

If you wish, you can sponsor a fruit tree at the Tirtham Vidya Vedic Centre in Coat Cren. It will be planted this autumn in the orchard and vegetable garden.

The forest

It is home to a wide variety of trees, some of which are several hundred years old.

We take some of the trees that have already fallen to provide us with wood. We support natural regeneration to repopulate and densify certain areas and the gap left by the removal of the EDF line.

Pastures

Their flamboyant green colour provides an open landscape for the eye to wander over to the edge of the forest. They generously welcome and feed the mares Ushuaïa and Chiara.

Their power, their grace, their softness, their dexterity and precision will remind you of the extreme finesse of the links between man and animal in their most subtle aspects.

 His companion through the millennia.

AIR

"Āgamārthaṃ tu devānāṃ / gamanārthaṃ tu rakṣasām
kurve ghaṇṭāravaṃ tatra / devatāhvānalāñchanam"

To the sound of the bells during the Puja, from the bell tower of St Tugdual in the distance to the singing of the birds.

The coastal storms subside and fade away to caress and enliven the landscape.

Stirring the trees, creating gaps, bringing in other sounds, scents and fragrances.

 

Here the air is pure, the breath is released in depth.
