Auro University e-Campus

Vision

Our vision is to be a facilitating platform for Integral and Transformational Learning and growth of Consciousness in the light of Integral Vision of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.

Mission

Our mission is to create an educational environment offering different approaches within the Integral Paradigm of Knowledge which may lead us to realisation of the Ideal of Human Unity.

We strive to inspire, educate and empower by offering:

Learners – an Integral learning process that emphasize conscious development on all levels of the being: physical, vital, mental, psychic and spiritual. We encourage learners to design their own path for self-development through freedom of choice and flexibility.

Educators – instructional modules on Integral Education which include in-depth study and research on various aspects of Integral Education, ranging from integral psychology to contemporary practices and methodologies of teaching and learning.

Enterprises – a range of management and leadership programs designed for corporations, foundations and educational institutions, introducing a range of core principles of Integral Yoga and the developmental approaches to consciousness in the management of professional organizations.

Instructors and facilitators – a global venue for the facilitation of and participation in innovative approaches to education.

Our Objectives

  1. To bridge the Western and Eastern Paradigms of Knowledge in the light of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
  2. To shift the balance of power in education from social institutions to individuals, allowing them to reclaim their inherent right to self-directed development of consciousness.
  3. To promote an integral self-development process that provides individuals with a deeper understanding of human relations and core-values and develops their ability to discover the truth in all fields of life: personal, professional, spiritual, etc.
  4. To preserve and make available countless writings, publications and audio recordings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
  5. To serve as a central resource for lectures, writings, conferences, etc. from those instructing on the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
  6. To provide economies of scale for SAILC through global distribution of in-house developed Integral courses.
  7. To connect globally a community of Integral Yoga practitioners and educators.
