Psychic Education

- book review by Carel


While compilations of the works of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo abound, few books give practical help in how to change oneself progressively. Recently the Sri Aurobindo Education Society, New Delhi, released such a book written by Neeltje Hubbes. "Psychic Education," subtitled "A Workbook", was written as a book for teachers, though many parts of it will be suitable for anyone in search of the psychic being. Apart from having a wealth of texts from Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, the reader is invited to introspect on the basis of questions asked. Worksheets and checklists offer further assistance to help one to remain focused on the inner discovery in the midst of daily life.

For some of those who are familiar with the works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, and who have dedicated themselves to the spiritual life, the book may have little new to offer. Others may leaf it through and suddenly get caught by one or more of its paragraphs pregnant with meaning which clarify a previously held vague understanding. For teachers who sincerely wish to provide their students with a psychic, vital, mental and physical education as described by the Mother, this book provides a wealth of useful information, practical hints and exercises while the book's second part "The Integral Classroom" will give the information required to build a 'psychic classroom environment'. Neeltje Hubbes, in publishing this book, has certainly helped the educational world by providing a practical means of implementing Mother's views on education to help one "to know oneself" or, in other words, to make The Great Discovery of one's psychic being.

Available from the Sri Aurobindo Education Society, Sri Aurobindo Ashram (Delhi Branch), Sri Aurobindo Marg, New Delhi 110 016.
