Dieva Auss

— Ecovillage “Dieva Auss” (Gods’ Ear) —

The name Dieva Auss derives from the name of the place, where the village is supposed to be located – “Ausēji-2”. The term Dieva Auss was first used for this place by my uncle who was one of the previous owners of it. He said, that when you are there, near this small peaceful river, among the oaktrees, you feel like if you were in God’s Ear.

I don’t know the exact meaning of the word Ausēji. Two options are the weavers or the place where sun rises. Word Auss (Ear) only sounds alike and is more a word play. Number 2 – divi – is a short form for word “Dievi” – Gods (plural).
