Lotus Circle International continues to support the women’s and men’s self help groups organized by Auroville Village Action Group (AVAG). We provide individual Somatic Experiencing sessions and community healing groups to village women and men, as well as offering sessions and training to the AVAG staff. Lotus Circle International teams travel to South India once or twice yearly for three to four weeks. For more information about our ongoing work there please see the South India Projects page.

All those interested in applying should  have completed at least two years of the Somatic Experiencing training program, be in generally good health, and be able to engage in a participatory approach in a cross cultural context. If you would like to join a Lotus Circle International team, please fill out the application and health form provided in this website and email them to me at You can also email me for further information on the trip details including trip costs.
