From the Editors

Relationships as Spiritual Practice

According to Sri Aurobindo, there are three poises of Being, or modes of consciousness: individual, universal, and transcendent. While the individual consciousness is centered on the soul as its organizing principle, the universal dimension comprises all possible relationships between two or more individuals, between the individual and the world, and with the entire universe. While spiritual practice is often described in the context of the relationship between the individual soul and the transcendent dimension (God), the universal or relational dimension plays a key part in Integral Yoga. In traditional forms of spirituality, enlightenment was often defined by the process of dissolution of the small self in its return to transcendent consciousness. In Integral Yoga, on the other hand, the goal is to transform both the individual and the world with the assistance of transcendent consciousness. Relationships of all kinds, therefore, play a key role.  Read more …

Music and Consciousness

We invite your reflections, essays, conversations, art, and poetry about “Music and Consciousness” for the Spring 2024 issue of Collaboration. Deadline is November 1, 2023.

Music is a cultural universal that has been used for centuries to foster community, enhance celebration and ritual, and put us in touch with the Divine. The Mother has a great deal to say about music and sadhana, and Sri Aurobindo has written much on the value of the arts for elevating consciousness. Accordingly, this issue will explore music as an aid to spiritual practice. Read more
