Circle Statistics

Circles at a glance

Below you'll find an interactive database of the live Circles that we've facilitated so far (from 2016 onwards). You can view all years at a glance, or zoom in for detailed information by year. The information provided remains relatively rudimentary, in order to care for the intimacy of each Circle. A more detailed legend is provided in the information section.

2016 - 2019


Reality Check…

On one hand, it’s a real celebration how many Circles we’ve had in the past few years and how many Aurovilians have participated. And yet, in reality we’ve barely touched 10% of our population!

Here’s a count of our unique participants (how many individual Aurovilians have ever participated in a Circle), in total and per year. And we’ve of course had several Circles where participants had already attended previous Circles, and so therefore aren’t counted in these statistics.
