Integral Yoga Centers in Canada

Phone: (705) 878-8861
- We have been meditating as a group for two years and made contact with
local Sri Aurobindo groups in November 2000. All members commited to meditating
at the Centre once a week, on Monday nights from 7:00-9:00pm. Meditation includes
karma yoga, music, reading from Savitri and other works of Sri Aurobindo or
the Mother, and silent concentration. We also hold a study circle one evening
per month. We have a routine of Karma Yoga, and a stately old victorian mansion
as our centre's home. Facilities include a library of books by and on Sri
Aurobindo and the Mother, a sitting room with a capacity of 10 people, a meditation
room with a capacity of 15 to 20 people, a kitchen and guest room. We are
in regular contact with Matagiri and with the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry.
- Future plans:
- The Centre has living space for quite a few people, and could develop into
an Ashram when the right people might arrive.

- Founded on April 3rd 1965 by Madeleine Gosselin with blessings from
the Mother, the center presently houses the relics of Sri Aurobindo in
its spacious meditation room. Collective meditations on Wednesdays, Sundays
and Darshan days are open to the public. The boutique sells Sri Aurobindo's,
Mother's and disciple's books in French and English, and carries other
esoteric books, incense, statues and crafts from Pondicherry and here.
Future plans: With Mother's grace, to become the working instruments of
the Mother and to offer her ourselves with sincerity and devotion.
How you can help: One can help through donations, and work. Help
is needed in the Center's kitchen and dining room, maintaince of the Center's
buildings and distribution of the books. If we had the funds, we would
like to renovate the boutique and buy a car for the Center's needs.
