Our Spiritual Guides

Creative school has been blessed with the presence, guidance and support from many spiritual masters - astral and living spiritual teachers Their teachings about life and education have shown the way for our school community to practice a new way of parenting and education. We strive to Walk and Live the path fully integrating it into our lives.

Sri Aurobindo and The Mother's teachings have been the foundational inspiration behind Creative school. What began as a meditational experience became a strong force in beginning Creative school. Their writings about Integral education; divine energy and working with the whole child have deeply inspired and been a guiding principle. The Mother's writings on parents and teachers as role models have really been foundational in Creative school beginning as a school with a healing centre as its heart - for parents and teachers as well - not just children! It has encouraged us to perfect ourselves. Inspired by The Mother's words we have co-created a school which is a healing and learning space for parents, teachers and children. You can read more about their work at The Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville.

We have received a tremendous amount of support, guidance and unconditional love from Dr. Newton Kondaveti in the formative years of the school. We are eternally grateful to him for everything he has given us. Dr Newton's workshops and teaching have opened up possibilities and helped us surmount inner barriers that are natural in such a journey. Jayashree's training under him really helped ground Creative. His teachings on spiritual parenting, inner child healing, relationships, abundance and cleansing of our past lives and impressions have truly helped us come to a lighter space within and work together as a community. Dr. Newton's teachings have given teachers and parents a thorough practice for deconditioning and inner cleansing.

Mahavatar Babaji and his energy presence that teaches us to live from love is a constant for all of us through the challenges and triumphs in our journey. We often feel the divine presence of this amazing Master during our trials and challenges. We have learnt to rely on his essence to make our way through challenges. Through Leonard Orr, a disciple of Babaji , we have learnt to utilize our breath to go deeper within and heal and fill our soul. We are grateful to Leonard Orr for spending a lot of time at Creative school and training us thoroughly. Our whole teaching community practices Conscious connected breathing along with spiritual purification practices to uplift our spirits. "Rebirthing breathwork"is used often to help us overcome our inner barriers. Our children utilize breath work as a powerful tool for health and release. More about Leonard Orr's work is on Rebirthing Breathwork .

We continue to study the teachings of many Masters to enhance the quality of our lives and working together - Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi's teachings on dis-identification with, "Who am I" and Eckhart Tolle's teachings on recognizing the Ego and Practising Presence guides and inspires us every day. As our school evolves we feel blessed to receive the perfect spiritual support we need to emerge from our challenges and choose the path of love.

Marshall Rosenberg's Non-violent communication or NVC is a wonderful tool for a community working together so closely. NVC has given us a way to navigate through relationships and practice mindfulness and being compassionate with each other. It is tremendously useful as the first step in addressing any inner conflict that naturally arises as we all work together. Gary Craig's processes for emotional healing and Energy Psychology have helped us tremendously to stay with the body and emerge from crisis..

Apart from the above, we have learnt to integrate various tools and techniques in our daily tool kit for empowered living. Tools for freeing and de-conditioning including tools from “Energy Medicine and Psychology", Yoga and Meridian stretches, Brain Gym, Karate Dou, Breathing exercises and Pranayams, Mantras and chants from different traditions. Our way, is a "spiritual one"and integrates the best from different spiritual teachings without any bias for religion or caste. We have integrated what we can practically use every day to bring joy, love and peace into our lives.
