Seyril Schochen (1915-2006) founded the Sri Aurobindo Learning Center,
familiarly known as Savitri House, in Crestone in 1986 as an educational foundation.
Her vision was that it be based on the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in association with Auroville,
the City of Human Unity in South India. We seek to continue her work by offering a welcoming retreat facility
to those interested in the study and realization of the spiritual vision of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother
and to promote exchanges with the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville.
The Learning Center is at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains just outside Crestone, CO.
In addition to main house, where we maintain a guest room for retreatants and where the library and bookstore is located,
there is also Solar Meditation Dome and Solar Bridge.
Every Tuesday evening we have a Study Group open to the public in which we study and discuss Sri Aurobindo's and The Mother's work. Its preceded by a potluck dinner at 5:30 PM In addition our library provides a place to obtain information and books on the writings of Sri Aurobindo, The Mother, and Integral Yoga. We also offer meditations, talks, performances and workshops, all open to the public.
To find the Sri Aurobindo Learning Center in Southern Colorado turn onto
Rt 17 from Rt 285 from the north or Rt 17 out of Alamosa.

At the end of the T Road make a right into Baca Grant Estates on Camino Baca Grande.
Follow the road up and make the second left onto Baca Grant Way. Go past Dragoon Overlook

We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Since Seyril's passing, the guest house, donations,
workshops and sale of books are our means to sustaining her vision.
We appreciate donations and invite individuals and groups to use our facilities.
