In Memoriam


Hilary Anderson, PhD
California Institute of Integral Studies
Professor Emeritus
Asian Philosophies & Womens Spirituality
Philosophy and Religion Department
School of Consciousness and Transformation

Friends will gather to share remembrances and honor the life of Hilary Anderson, a long-time devotee of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and a student of Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri. Hilary worked with Dr. Chaudhuri in the founding of the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and was a former professor, dean, and founding board member of the university. A well-known lecturer, scholar, therapist, and seminar leader, Dr. Anderson utilized a rich synthesis of East-West mythology and psycho-spiritual symbolism to promote healing and a deep cross cultural understanding of the human condition. Her unique perspective was rooted in a deep appreciation of our common cultural values and ideals expressed in the language of myth, symbol, and ritual. She recognized gods and goddesses of the great world myths as archetypal energy patterns, and developed a profound process through which we can identify the major mythic themes that play in our daily lives. 

Hilary made her transition on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 in Castro Valley, California in the San Francisco Bay Area. She will be dearly missed by her students, friends, and colleagues.
