About Us

Occupying a beautiful 5-acre beachfront compound approximately 5 km north of Puducherry (formerly known as Pondicherry), Quiet Healing Center is Auroville’s natural healing facility with superb views on the Indian Ocean.


Its location goes back to the time the Mother (of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry) used to walk along the beach and told Maggi Lidchi-Grassi, her secretary at that time, that this place had powerful healing energies and would be an ideal spot for, what she called, a “hospital of Love”.

Years later, in the mid 1980’s, Maggi became inspired to help realize this vision. Funds were raised, land was acquired and construction began. The Quiet Healing Center opened its doors in February 1997 and has been a growing wellness centre ever since.

The center has a dedicated staff of about 30 Auroville residents and employs close to 20 villagers from the local area, of which most of them have been with us for many years.


Holistic Healing

Quiet Healing Center offers a wide range of natural treatments and a variety of aquatic bodywork, massage & health related courses and workshops to guests and Auroville residents.

Healing work at Quiet is based on the understanding that the human being is first and foremost a spiritual being, seeking to express its true self through its mental, emotional and physical ‘bodies’.

The various natural, non-invasive therapies all seek to address the client on a deeper energetic level within a safe space of care, love and touch.

Each therapy (and therapist) honours and strives to work in harmony with the body’s own wisdom, recognizing the inner spirit as the ultimate healer.

Our therapies, courses and workshops are also open for clients, who are not staying with us.
