Ashesh Joshi is the editor and programmer of this website. Born in India, his spiritual quest began at an early age. After two years of study of various lines of spirituality, the books of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother found him. With the new reading and with the practice of Integral Yoga came the deep love for the Mother and glimpses of the inner life. After another two years of study and following an inner call, at 20 he joined Sri Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry and spent next 20 years, making small steps towards the great aim of the Integral Yoga. Eventually, following a strong inner urge to share with the world what he had learned and experienced, in 2007 he joined Auroville.
At Auroville, after giving a series of lectures on Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga, he realised the need to use live and interactive mediums which will become for participants of the workshop, a trigger to begin inner exercises. That gave birth to his multimedia presentations and eventual Inner-Work-Workshops.
Over time, giving more than 120 workshops at Auroville and lately also in various European countries, he has introduced Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga to numerous seekers from all over the world. This is what gives him deepest fulfilment and challenges him to learn and to grow. His dream is to make the Integral Yoga and the guidance of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother accessible to all. Inner-Work-Workshops and this website are steps towards this.
Ashesh loves to study the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. All the compilations on this website are by him. An introductory book on the Integral Yoga, compiled by him is about to be published.
As is natural in the practice of Integral Yoga, love of various arts flowered in him, blossoming to his own expression. His works are displayed on his personal (upcoming) website www.asheshjoshi.com
