ÇAĞ UNIVERSITY STUDENT GRADUATION!

Thirteen students from Çağ (pronounced “Cha”) University in Turkey spent the month of May working with members of the WBH team to complete projects for their Marketing and Sustainability course, with three distinct groups focusing on environment, society, and economy. On June 12, 2021, the students presented their projects to their instructor (Magua Theriac) and to a group of educators within Second Life. Following their presentations, the students were treated to a real graduation ceremony, since Covid prevented them from gathering together in their country.

We at Inspiration Island were honored to work with the Turkish students, and to see the results of their efforts! Well done students!


The Çağ University is a private, non-profit university in Mersin Province, Turkey. It was established officially on 9 July 1997 by Bayboğan Education Foundation (Turkish: Bayboğan Eğitim Vakfı) in Adana. “Çağ” means “epoch”. (Source: Wikipedia.org)

A New ‘Mindful Meditation’ Program

On Sunday, March 5 at 3pm SLT, Ewan Bonham and Starlight began an exciting new program at Whole Brain Health. It is called ‘TransAct’ (Trancendant Activation), and started meeting weekly beginning on March 5.

The group covers the many benefits of Mindfulness Meditation and how you can use the many tools of Second Life to develop your own unique personal meditation space and process. We demonstrate the use of objects and simple builds, plus the use of the many environmental effects in SL to tailor your ashram devotional experience. The group plans to also venture to various gorgeous meditative sims in SL open for your use.

We will show you how you can discover just how your mind and heart connect to bring yourself to a peaceful Present Moment awareness at times when you need to step out of the stress the real world puts before us.

The program meets at the Community Cultural Hub initially, and the teleports to the TransAct Skydome.

Photos from Mad Science Laboratory

On Saturday, Nov 19, 2016, there was a guided workshop on Situational Photography, in Stranger Nightfire’s Mad Science Lab. Images taken at the workshop can be viewed at our Flickr page.

Situational Photography takes advantage of the environment to tell a narrative. It is enriched by costume, pose, lighting, and the relative body language of people in the picture.

The build was an excellent location to practice photo skills and using viewer tools. Tips and suggestions were offered by Tooyaa, including angle, zoom & pan, lighting, costume, and more.

The Mad Science Lab was also the venue for a special presentation of Frankenstein in October 2016:
