Dates & times – every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, 11 AM PT / 12 PM MT / 1 PM CT / 2 PM ET / 8 PM German
Since 2020, we have been hosting an open-ended reading and discussion of Sri Aurobindo’s Synthesis of Yoga with a focus on the practice of Integral Yoga as this finds expression in Sri Aurobindo’s work. A virtual meeting will be held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday until the book is fully read.
Reading schedule and session organization
Each session begins with a three minute meditation and ends with a brief meditation. We typically read each chapter of the Synthesis of Yoga twice. During the first round we take turns reading one paragraph aloud at a time, and then discuss what comes up for us, until the chapter is complete. During the second round we read the entire chapter aloud again but without breaks, one paragraph per person at a time. The materials and discussions encourage us to consider how the readings apply to our everyday lives.
Joining this Group
We welcome new participants. We recommend some familiarity with Sri Aurobindo’s writing, but it is not required. After participating a few times, it would be good if the person could make a commitment to attend.
