in Sri Aurobindo's Savitri and The Mother's Agenda
August 10th to August 16th, 1997
1611 Howard Ave
Colorado Springs, CO 80909
This gathering will use the Mother's Agenda and Sri Aurobindo's Savitri
as a means to invoke the supramental force: a collective aspiration
toward the growing physical presence of the Mother's force in our lives.
This is not an intellectual study or a lecture about these two great
works, but an attempt through them to enter intensely and deeply, maybe
even physically, into the ongoing process of transformation itself.
"In matter shall be lit the spirit's glow,
In body and body kindled the sacred birth;"
"It's something that takes hold of the body:
such a warm, gentle vibration,
and yet so terribly powerful at the same time"
The sessions include readings, meditation, movement, high-altitude
hikes, seeing, singing, dancing, and celebrating the Integral Yoga.
Crestone is a 3 hour drive from Colorado Springs, a 4 hour drive from
Denver, and a 1 hour drive from Alamosa.
"Poetry comes into being at the direct call of three powers,
inspiration, beauty and delight, and brings them to us and us to them by
the magic charm of the inspired rhythmic word."
The Future Poetry, chapter XXVI, "The Sun of Poetic Truth"
"A poetry born direct from and full of the power of the spirit and
therefore a largest and a deepest self-expression of the soul and mind
of the race is that for which we are seeking and of which the more
profound tendencies of the creative mind seem to be in its travail. This
poetry will be a voice of eternal things raising to a new significance
and to a great satisfied joy in experience the events and emotions and
transicences of life which will then be seen and sung as the succession
of signs, the changing of the steps of an eternal manifestation; it will
be an expression of the very self of man and the self of things and the
self of Nature; it will be a creative and interpretative revelation of
the infinite truth of existence and of the universal delight and beauty
and of a greater spiritualised vision and power of life."
The Future Poetry, chapter XXIX, "The Power of the Spirit"
"The poetic word is a vehicle of the spirit, the chosen medium of the
soul's self-expression, and any profound modification of the inner habit
of the soul, its thought atmosphere, its way of seeing, its type of
feeling, any change of the light in which it lives and the power of the
breath which it breathes, greatening of its elevations or entry into
deeper chambers of its self must reflect itself in a corresponding
modification, changed intensity of light or power, inner greatening and
deepening of the word which it has to use, and if there is no such
change or if it is not sufficient for the new intention of the spirit,
then there can be no living or no perfect self expression. The old
habits of speech cannot contain the new spiritŠ"
The Future Poetry, chapter XXXI, "The Word and the Spirit"
