The Learning Community, Auroville
Vision: To create a community of children and adults who grow more conscious by living and learning together. We implement ways to practice the concept of Integral Education as defined by Mother and Sri Aurobindo where each part of the being is helped to grow into its full potential and the psychic being becomes the leader of one’s life and growth through an unending education.
Samrat grew up in the Integral Yoga Ashram of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in Pondichery and lives in Auroville since 18 years. Samrat loves the silence and solitude of the forest while being very involved.

- Facilitates Open Heart Space Meditation, a simple practice of becoming aware of the reality as it is without judgement, interpretation or reaction, and settling into its vast luminous expanse. Learning to embrace and let go each experience as it arises and subsides. Eventually the mind falls silent and sinks into the open heart-space, a doorway to Unity-consciousness, where the inner and outer worlds meet and merge
Kaliananda's involvement with Spirit & Nature started as an out-flowering of common interest in animal communication and love for the forest. Her presence in Anusuya Forest living at Spirit & Nature inspired her to lead, "Silent walk in the Forest" - an invitation to other Aurovilians to enjoy the simple gifts of engaging our vibrant forest . She collaborates with this mission of Spirit & Nature to function as a connector, a point of contact for to the forest."

Allison Lu is an educator and artist involved in dolphin consciousness. She grew up in an island in the Pacific and had deep connection with dolphins since young. Later in her life, she was called by the dolphins and had pre-natal contacts with wild spinners in Hawaii and birthed her child with the blessings of dolphin energies - in love, joy, bliss and freedom.
She shares her birthing experience in her book ‘Dolphin-Empowered Birth’. Today, she spends her time engaged in exploring the science of dolphin-human interspecies communication, dolphin-healing and spirituality in relation to humans. She is based in Auroville, India and travels around the world giving workshops, talks, art exhibitions and retreats.
She is the founder of ‘The Dolphin’s Way’, in which she dedicates her time to illuminate and draw attention to dolphins in human’s spiritual life.
