Integral Yoga Community - Overview
Introduction to World Community
of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother
Welcome to the World Community Section of the Miraura Web Site. Here
you will be able to locate listings of a variety of organizations
dedicated to the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
The Integral Yoga community, outside of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and
Auroville, consists of a loose collection of Centers, Organizations,
Study Groups, and individuals. There is no central organization,
rather a Divine Anarchy which, yet, is increasingly drawn into
more-or-less close relationship with itself as time goes on.
For the purposes of this section we have classified Integral Yoga
World Community under four headings:
- These are usually non-profit trusts,
have a central location, and offer regular programs, facilities and
activities. These centers are sometimes very active in their
community and are generally open to all spiritual aspirants.
- These are groups of people organized around a common purpose.
These might include fund-raising and distribution, book distribution and networking. (Please note that there is no central authority or organization in the Integral Yoga.)
- Study Groups
- These hold regular meetings to study the written works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Some groups are associated with centers, though many are not. Individuals may hold informal study groups in their homes or at some other venue.
- Online Groups
- These are active online discussion groups thruough e-mail list servers. Some newsletters also are posted online. This Web site, Miraura, is one aspect of our online community.
