What could the future of humanity be?

Some thoughts based on Sri Aurobindo’s vision of an ongoing evolution of consciousness

18 Apr '18 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm

Humanity uses many different "knowledge systems". The consciousness-centred Vedic system can support all of them, giving each it's due respect and role within the whole. Can it also provide useful ideas for the future? Sri Aurobindo’s essentially Vedic understanding of reality as an evolving manifestation of consciousness provides a fascinating perspective on the future of humanity. In this seminar we'll have a look at where a genuine, progressive science of consciousness could take us.

This seminar inaugurates our new initiative titled "Indian Intellectual Traditions".

Please note that registration via email is required for this free seminar.

Matthijs Cornelissen

Matthijs Cornelissen is a Dutch physician who settled in India in 1976. In 1981 he co-founded Mirambika, a research centre for integral education in New-Delhi. He is deeply interested in finding ways to introduce some of the psychological knowledge and know-how that developed as part of the Indian spiritual tradition into academic Psychology. To this end he founded in 2001 the Sri Aurobindo Centre for Consciousness Studies, and in 2006 the Indian Psychology Institute, both in Pondicherry. He organised several conferences, seminars and workshops, gave courses, edited books and published articles related to consciousness studies, yoga-based research methodologies and Indian psychology. Presently he teaches Integral Psychology at the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education in Pondicherry and maintains two websites http://ipi.org.in and http://saccs.org.in.
