The AUM blog is an online journal for attendees to share thoughts, experiences, and comments about AUM 2008. Photos taken during the conference are also available here:
The All USA Meeting (AUM) is an annual conference for people interested in the vision of Sri Aurobindo and Mother, the practice of Integral Yoga, and the sustainable international community of Auroville -- and for those interested in consciousness, evolution, and the future of humanity. This year's "mountain high" AUM will take place at an elevation of 8,000 feet in the breathtaking splendor of the Colorado Rockies.
About AUM • Late registration
"Camp AUM' will focus on bringing people together in a spiritual atmosphere with time and opportunity to interact and get to know each other. The emphasis will be on activities, not speakers and lectures. Offerings will include meditation, small-group discussions on Integral Yoga, readings from Savitri (Sri Aurobindo's epic poem), arts and crafts, live music, dance, hikes, volleyball, hatha yoga, swimming, picnics, and more.
About the program
AUM 2008 is taking place at the scenic YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Center outside the town of Estes Park, Colorado. The YMCA camp is nestled on 860 acres adjoining Rocky Mountain National Park, offering spectacular scenery and a beautiful natural environment. The site has a magnificent view of the neighboring peaks, which rise to 14,000 feet.
About the site
For a recommended packing list and information on weather, altitude, fitness and medical conditions, and safety guidelines, see the safety page. Nature in the Rocky Mountains is vast and powerful and must be respected. During AUM 2008 it will be important for participants to be conscious of their own state, the state of those around them, and the ever-changing state of the environment. This will ensure a safe and happy experience for all.
Estes Park is approximately a two-hour drive from Denver International Airport. The Estes Park Shuttle will take you from the airport directly to the YMCA. Five shuttles per day go from the airport to Estes Park and back again, so check shuttle times before you book your plane tickets. Attendees are responsible for arranging their own travel to and from the YMCA.
The registration fee covers lodging, meals, and activities. We have reserved a block of rooms at a special AUM group rate; these rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Transportation costs are separate, and are each person's responsibility.
