  • Overview and Highlights

    Travel Journal from India Auroville, India | Thu Apr 28, 2011

    It's time to wrap things up... For those of you who are considering this program in the future- I loved every minute of this experience...but then again I am the "new age flower child" type and meditating on a mountain top is my kind of thing.

  • Aurobindo and the Mothership

    Travel Journal from India Pondicherry, India | Tue Apr 26, 2011

    Travel Journal from India Auroville, India | Tue Apr 19, 2011

    Yo La Tengo, a band that I really enjoy, have a song called "I Feel Like Going Home." The lyrics go something like this:  I can float above the ceiling I like drifting through the air I tend to lose my concentration But right now, the cries don't appeal to me I feel like going home I've been in India for three months. How wild is that? We have less than two weeks left, a time …
