Neeltje Huppes was born in the Netherlands. After post graduation in the sixties, she taught in a progressive school and at a young age became a member of a special Commission set up by the Dutch Government to revamp education in Secondary schools. Her search for in depth innovation led her to Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. The urge to live in India increased and in the seventies she came to Pondicherry. She lived for fifteen years in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram-Delhi Branch where she founded, together with Matthijs Cornelissen, a Research Centre for Integral Education, focusing mainly on teacher education. The urge for a more intense inner quest brought her back to Pondicherry where she is presently teaching in the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education. She wrote Psychic Education, a Workbook. New-Delhi: SAES (2001). She has lectured in India and abroad on various aspects of Integral Psychology. In February 2006 she opened together with Matthijs Cornelissen the Indian Psychology Institute.
