Guiding Light of The Month

In this immense heroic struggle, in this sublime struggle of love against hatred, of justice against injustice, of obedience to Thy supreme law against revolt, may I gradually be able to make humanity worthy of a still sublimer peace in which, all internal dissensions having ceased, the whole effort of man may be united for the attainment of a more and more perfect and integral realisation of Thy divine Will and Thy progressive ideal. - The Mother

The Banyan Talks…Health and Wellbeing at Auroville

Sante Clinic

Most allopathic doctors tend to define health as an absence of disease, and that is also the dictionary definition. But Auroville’s is a positive definition which includes the whole being. It’s a balance and harmony between the different planes and levels of the being. In Santé there is far more space:
now there is the potential to have five practitioners from different healing modalities working at the same time.

To integrate the different modalities they need to meet regularly, so there is a common tea-room and a meeting room where they can meet and discuss common and chronic cases, and watch educational videos together.

On a practical level, this collaborative approach means that every practitioner working there has access to the same patient records. And they will have regular patient care conferences where the practitioners discuss complex cases, and hear about exceptional results or discoveries.

The next step will be to create individually-tailored plans for patients. One of the important things is that the patient must become part of the healing process. It’s no longer the doctor who is God and the patient merely the passive recipient. Fortunately, in Auroville we already have an environment where the people who are seeking health are ready to take responsibility for themselves, cooperate, learn and change.

In Santé, the patients will be able to choose which primary discipline they want because they will have all the major primary disciplines – allopathy, homeopathy, ayurveda, acupuncture, bodywork – under one roof.
