Institute for Wholistic Education

The Institute for Wholistic Education is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation under section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Institute is dedicated to the development of human potential through the integration of spirituality into daily life. The Institute focuses on exploring human evolution and creating opportunities for individuals to bring about meaningful change in their own lives and in human society.

The Institute received its initial direction and inspiration from the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. In carrying out its mission, the Institute recognizes that people need to take responsibility for their own lives and actions and to this end, the Institute has focused on educating interested individuals in the fields of Ayurveda, Reiki, Vedic Astrology and alternative health and wellness practices, including yoga.

The Institute programs are open to the general public and visitors are welcome by advance appointment. The Institute has a correspondence course program in Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga. In collaboration with several related concerns, the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and an extensive collection of books on Ayurveda, Reiki and other alternative healing modalities are made available.

Our Silver Lake Wisconsin facility is our offices only at this time and is not available for visitor meetings. Primary activities take place from this office for our online activities and our support for the information dissemination that forms a core of our programme.

Several of our directors are located in Honolulu, Hawaii and offer a modest spiritual library, programs and meditation meetings, and one to one consultation. Visitors should plan on making an appointment by calling 808 367 1820 or writing an email to Visitor Appointments

Contributions to the work of the Center are welcome and are tax-deductible. You should however check with your own tax-advisor to determine deductibility status. The Institute provides an acknowledgement letter for donations that are made.
