Quiet Healing Centre

Alternative Health Care Facility

Quiet Healing Centre, completed in 1997, is Auroville's main alternative health care facility, located in a beach-front compound approx 5 kms north of Pondicherry, halfway to Auroville. The Centre offers a variety of therapies and also has a yoga/conference hall and guest facilities.

The land was previously owned by a family with close ties to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, and the Mother occasionally visited the site. She is said to have remarked that a powerful healing energy was concentrated there. Many years later, one of the Mother's former secretaries was moved to help realise a place where this powerful healing energy could be utilised for all. Funds were raised, the land was acquired for Auroville, and construction of facilities began. The Centre opened in February 1997.

Architect: Poppo Pingel

Philosphy of Healing

The healing work at Quiet is based on the understanding that humans are first and foremost spiritual beings seeking to express truth through the instrumentality of their mental, vital, and physical nature. Disharmonies occur as the more or less ignorant instruments deform the energies trying to manifest through them, and it is these disharmonies which we recognize as the 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 the only level from which real healing can proceed. Each therapy honours and strives to work in harmony with the body's own deep wisdom. Each therapist recognises him- or herself as a humble tool of the indwelling Spirit - ultimately, the only Healer.


Two guest houses with a total of thirteen aesthetically pleasing and comfortably appointed double rooms are available for those wishing to stay at Quiet while taking therapy. The Quiet kitchen prepares three healthy vegetarian meals per day under carefully monitored hygienic conditions.
