Integral Yoga Events in USA - Savitri Immersion Workshop


Crestone, Colorado August 4th-10th

Schedule of activities:

  1. Daily readings and meditations in Savitri:

    This practice is based upon the Vedantic conception of mantra as the direct revelation of spiritual knowledge through sound, and upon the assumption that Savitri, in Sri Aurobindo's words, is the Force (shakti) of transformation in the Integral Yoga Sadhana.

    O Savitri, thou art my spirit's Power,
    The revealing voice of my immortal Word,
    The face of Truth upon the roads of Time
    Pointing to the souls of men the routes to God.

                                        (Savitri, 11,1, p.703)

  2. Parallel reading from  Mother's Agenda, Vols. 10-11.

              Stability and change
              Inertia and transformation
              Eternity and progress
              Unity = power and repose
  3. Daily physical exercises, with balanced body movement and concentration; hikes along scenic mountain trails; creative dance.

  4. Commentary-discussions: Major - Jean Gebser and Sri Aurobindo, On the Evolution of Consciousness; Minor - Integral Transformative Practice (ITP) and Integral Yoga.
