[Important Announcement to all the Applicants of our Annual IE Course (dated May 05, 2020):

The Covid-19 induced lock-down has now been extended further till 18th May, with some relaxation, but still a large number of areas are under great threat. In order to contain the threat and to get back to a semblance of normalcy, all of us have to avoid any possible way of coming under the influence of the virus. We have to ensure this in the midst of several responsibilities as taking care of the security and safety of our family members, our dependents etc. Considering all this, we have decided to suspend this year’s summer Course on Integral Education, scheduled to be held from 10 to 18 May 2020.

Those who have applied for this year’s Course will be considered and given preference during our next year’s Course.

We are also considering other ways of reaching out to a large number of educationists seeking for a deeper understanding of the Integral Education approach. We hope to engage them online and we will announce it on our website as and when it is ready.  

Until then stay safe: Outwardly, follow the recommended safety procedures, and inwardly by drawing out the strength & power inherent within all of us to conquer this virus. – Shivakumar, Course Co-ordinator.]
