Occupying a beautiful seven acre beachfront compound approximately five kilometers north of Pondicherry, the Quiet Healing Center is Auroville's main alternative health care facility.

The land was previously owned by a family with close ties to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and in years past the Mother occasionally visited the site. She greatly appreciated the natural beauty and deep silence of the spot, gave it the name "Quiet", and spoke of it as the (future) sight of what she called, "a special kind of hotel" where people suffering from the stress of ordinary life could come to recharge and heal."

Many years later, one of the Mother's former secretaries was moved to help realize this vision. Funds were raised, the land acquired for Auroville, and construction of facilities begun. The Quiet Healing Centre opened in February, 1997.



The healing work at Quiet is based on the understanding that man is first and foremost a spiritual being seeking to express its truth through the instrumentality of the mental, vital, and physical nature. Disharmonies occur as the more or less ignorant instruments deform the the energies trying to manifest through them, and it is these disharmonies which we recognize as disease. The various (non-invasive) therapies offered at Quiet all seek, in one way or another, to address the patient's difficulties on an energetic level which is, indeed, the only level from which real healing can proceed. Each therapy honors and strives to work in harmony with the body's own deep wisdom. Each therapist recognizes himself as a humble tool of the indwelling Spirit who is, ultimately, the only Healer.


Healing retreats


Since 1998, the Quiet Healing Center has periodically conducted 'healing retreats'. A Quiet Healing Retreat is a highly structured, ten day residential programme in which a combination of intensive group work and individual therapy enables the participant to experience himself in new ways. The aim is to bring the participant into contact with that deeper part of his being from which well his own healing energies and to equip him with the knowledge and techniques whereby that contact may be maintained after he leaves the programme.

Quiet ‘healing retreats’ are presently offered only by pre-arrangement with groups which undertake to  provide all the participants to the programme: a group size of ten to fourteen people seems to be ideal.





Therapies on Sundays are available only December to March.
