We are offering three one-month courses introducing Auroville’s relationship with its surrounding villages as an opportunity for applied Human Unity. Most sessions take the class out to visit villages and sites of projects where Aurovilians are working with and for the villagers: schools, vocational training programmes, women’s clubs, youth clubs, etc. Participants are expected to be pro-active in asking questions and will be encouraged to examine their own biases and impediments to achieving human unity.

Dates and Time Tuesday afternoons 2:00 – 4:30 pm December through March. Venue Verite Hall Registrationemail:, or just show up.

Presenter Bio Bhavana Dee, an American woman who joined Auroville in 1971, has been working in the field of Auroville’s relation to the villages and in village development since 1983. She is the founding trustee of Auroville Village Action Trust, and will draw on both her own and her colleagues’ experiences to show and explain their rural development work, especially in education, community organisation, women’s empowerment and microfinance, and recently tsunami relief and rehabilitation. She is also a resident-participant of the Verité Integral Learning Campus and a Vipassana meditator.
