e wish to thank Wayne and Surama Bloomquist for seven steadfast years of
service to our yoga community through the Sri Aurobindo Association.
sorry to see them resign from the board of directors; Wayne is stepping
down as President and Surama as Secretary.
Since1990, when the office moved from New York to California, they've
packed and shipped every book sold by the SAA, guided the planning
annual AUM conferences, and brought out issue after issue of Collaboration.
Their lives and their home are so closely entwined with the teachings
community, that most of the last decade of activities related to Sri
Aurobindo and Mother in the San Francisco area have been supported
SAA or Wayne.
The present directors, Dave Hutchinson, Lynda Lester and I, will continue
to follow the successful course of Wayne's aspiration to build up the
financially, enlarge its ability to present the teachings, serve the
community as a liaison with the Ashram and Auroville, and involve more
people in the process.
they're no longer with the Association, we should not expect to see
any less of them. In fact, the Center for Cellular Evolution,
conference in Auroville is the latest incarnation of Wayne's unceasing
quest to discover ways of infusing everyday life with the practice
yoga taught by Sri Aurobindo.
