Consciousness Studies in Application to Daily Life: Transformation of Consciousness

Course Overview

Sri Aurobindo and The Mother describe the four movements of consciousness required for transformation. The first is ascension towards higher realms of consciousness and the second, its counter movement, the descension into the depths of one’s being. The third movement is going within to uncover the Psychic Being – the Soul – and the fourth, its counter movement, widening into the cosmic planes.

Through these four movements of consciousness – ascension, descension, going within and widening – the True Reality which we seek can be reached, known and possessed and our surface state of awareness transcended. Only then, says Sri Aurobindo, will “our ignorance or a very partial and surface awareness of ourselves be flooded by a light of self-revelation and turn into self-knowledge.”

Join our team of instructors from various fields of endeavor – doctors, philosophers, psychologists and Integral Yoga practitioners – for an enriching exploration of consciousness and its transformative powers.

This course is intended for those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of consciousness and its transformative powers. No pre-requisites to this course.
