In August, Ralph White, one of the founders of the Holistic Centers Gathering, returned to the Findhorn Foundation in the far north of Scotland to share about his personal quest for meaning.
Shortly before the evening was due to unfold there was an unexpected power cut in the Findhorn Ecovillage. A mysterious force at play created the perfect candlelit ambience for Ralph’s adventurous often mystical tales and the audience was mesmerised for the entire two hour talk.
Each Gathering is memorable in it’s own way and the 2016 event hosted by Le Monastère des Augustine in Quebec City was no exception. It was the first time a center has held the event within their first year of opening and as a participant in a Gathering a few years prior when they were still in the concept stage.
It was a joy to experience the warmth and professional hospitality of the team, the peace and serenity of the venue, everyone left truly nourished and inspired by the experience and we share a few of the comments with you.
During our webinar in July we focused on best practices and participants from a wide range of centers shared insights with each other in the spirit of collaboration.
It’s reassuring to know we face similar difficulties as we evolve into our potential and adapt to the fast pace and ever changing nature of the 21st century and there were similar themes in our best practices too.
We’ve collated a few of the key points for you to explore further within your center…
Within the history of contemporary holistic centers, there has been a tradition of annual meetings of founders, administrators, program directors and other staff members going back more than 30 years.
During these three+ decades, representatives of such centers have met at holistic centers located throughout North America, UK, Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia and China. In May 2016, the Centers Gathering convened at Le Monastére des Augustines in Quebec City.
