Relationships as Spiritual Practice

Summer 2023 | VOL. 48 NO. 2 

DEADLINE March 1, 2023

We invite your contributions that share insights, intuitions, thoughts, feelings, and experiences of relationships as spiritual practice for the Summer 2023 issue of Collaboration. What a wide, no, an infinite net to draw from! From the Divine to the child to the cricket to the river to the electron. From Big Bang to black hole, from transcendent to universal to individual. From the first spark of life … to the new being of the future. Everything is connected. All tied together in the great mystery play—playing hide-and-go-seek, separate and reunite. Even separation, despite its best efforts to smother longing, is relationship.

All life is yoga.

Then there’s ordinary consciousness of relationship, rife with misunderstanding, isolation, conflict, ignorance, depression, suffering, death. Incompleteness

Collaboration invites your reflections, experiences, intuitions, celebrations, artistic expressions, insights in this great mystery play. What relationships have powerfully affected your life? What gifts have you received from them, and returned? How have your ways of relating changed? How do yogic practice and experience affect your family or work life, your connection with nature, your fluidity of thought and openness of heart? Has collective yoga entered your life? What is your experience of surrender, of dissolution of boundaries? And how are you navigating the challenges of one or more of these bonds?


Collaboration is the journal of Integral Yoga published in the United States. Our mission is to share articles, conversations, poetry, and art that deeply engage our transitional times with the beauty, joy, and hope of the vast wisdom and practice of this evolutionary tradition and its founders, Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. We explore and celebrate particularly the individual practice of yoga in this country as well as currents and expressions of the collective yoga of the American soul in our times.


Collaboration is a means of reflection, encouragement, and inspiration for the Integral Yoga
community here at home. We also want to highlight friends and allies in related areas of personal and social transformation. Including these fellow travelers requires sensitivity from our contributors, whom we ask to refrain from using references and terms of Integral Yoga and the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother without explaining or clarifying them.


We welcome many kinds of contributions, especially those that share, in ways both personal and universal, the surprises of grace, intuition, and delight in the widening—or stuck—moments of our lives. We also love to publish submissions that challenge the increasing polarization of our personal and social lives or embrace that fragmentation and find its deeper meaning and healing in the integrative and inclusive currents emerging in our time.
