Trinity Conference Center
The AUM in 2000 took place at the Trinity
Conference Center, just 2-1/4 hours from New York City in West Cornwall,
Connecticut, from July 5-9, 2000. The center has extensive recreational
facilities, and the accomodations
and setting are superb. Detailed directions
are available on the Trinity web site.
The AUM 2000 Conference was entitled The Bridge,
and refers to breadth of Sri
Aurobindo's vision and how it can be a bridge to the future. It also
refers to the communion of all spiritual paths and how we can communicate
about what is most essential, bridging the differences.
Trinity Conference Center is located 100 miles north of
New York City on the outskirts of the tiny village of West Cornwall, Connecticut,
on the banks of the Housatonic River. This is Litchfield County and referred
to as the northwest corner of Connecticut. It is sublimely beautiful and
ecologically pure and clean. The village is a five-minute walk from the
conference center, where you can find three restaurants, a bookshop, a
post office, and a few shops. There is central air conditioning in the
center for the conference. Excursions planned include group walking tours
on the Appalachian Trail, canoe rides down the river (extra charge), garden
tour in Cornwall, ultimate frisbee, tennis and swimming.
