The new Monastery

Post by Sudane Erato »

Mention has been made that the new Monastery is taking shape in our workshop, inviting folks to visit and comment if so inclined. PLEASE do!

New Monastery in workshop

I've put in walkways so you can get around, as the workshop has a somewhat limiting footprint. Also please be tolerant of doorways that you can't walk through... yet. Some you can, but others are awaiting linking and subsequent removal of physics which will allow passage. Always keep in mind that this is a work in progress, and many things remain unfinished... doors, windows, textures, and detail fittings. Still, I hope you will enjoy a visit. This project is hugely inspiring to me, and my energy for it is really unbounded.

The monastery itself is greatly inspired by a place I once visited in RL, St Mary's Abbey on the tiny isle of Iona in Scotland. Ancient legend has it that in 563 AD the future saint Columba sailed to this spot from Ireland, founded the monastery, and set out to Christianize the Scots. Later, in the 1200's, the Abbey was built as a Benedictine establishment. Nowadays, the Abbey is rebuilt and is the spiritual home of the ecumenical Iona Community, a word-wide "dispersed Christian ecumenical community working for peace and social justice, rebuilding of community and the renewal of worship".

With Mizou's help, I am revisualizing this place as place of spiritual harmony. My personal vision, which I share with Mizou, is a harmony of balance between the male and female aspects, human life and all of the natural world. This is the underlying vision, but on this vision builds goals such as are embodied in our community and in other communities such as the Iona Community. So perhaps the new Monastery can be a home not just for spirit and peace, but for living and community activities as well.

I hope you enjoy it. Please don't hesitate to comment, good or bad.

Thanks Sudane for creating such an amazing build, the more I see it growing, the more that I feel its peaceful atmosphere.
It might be also a suitable place for acapella voices permeating the old stones?

Yes, a big thank you to Sudane from me as well.

It turned out there is no possibility to take the old building on archive as is. I will try my best to link together the remains as soon as I have returned the no-transfer objects of Ramna, Samantha and Arria and hand it over to Archie.

Meanwhile Spider Macron is doing a Machinima of the Monastery, when he is done we can proceed to put the new built in place. Please be nice to Spider when you meet him ;)

I have been able to pick a softlinked copy of the dovecote and the staircase in the Tower as I have been told both items need to be preserved :)

Thank you a lot Tan for sponsoring the Monastery parcel.
I will do my best to help with tier as I want to see Sudanes building stand here for a very long time.
... the tierbox is set so any amount can be paid so if any of you feels like helping too, you can just use the tierbox as a tip jar - hint hint ;-)

The Machinima is done, it is a 550 MB file. I have it on my hard drive. Any idea where to store it for the community?

I took some objects for the museum as Arria asked for and returned the objects I do not own. That crippled the tower, but the rest is more or less intact. I was not able to hardlink it for it was more than 265 Prims. I will keep the coalequed object, which has transfer, until someone asks for it.

The parcel is swept now, but I guess it needs landscaping, there is a roadway on the border and I am not sure whether the parcel cut is suitable for the new building.

Over to you, Sudane :)

Tan, Mizou created a CDS YouTube channel so that we would have a place to put any community videos. Perhaps you could ask her for the login details and upload it there. Once it is there, I could embed it onto the CDS portal, and of course, the 'share' would be available for anywhere else from YouTube.

If you send me the file I can also try to upload it on flikr and share it with the CDS group and try to share it with facebook :)
