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.
The Haven Leadership Summit, hosted by The Haven’s Education Steering Group, is our first ever blended on-line and on-site conference. The focus of the summit is leadership at The Haven and in the world, at a time when it is vitally important to identify new models that are relational and self-responsible.
We want to be intentional in planning for the complexity of the future and are excited to explore a range of perspectives on leadership and expand our horizons.
Christine Lines is the coordinator of the Centers’ Gathering website, and lives and works at the Findhorn Foundation Community in the far north of Scotland. Christine is passionate about creating connections between the visionaries who work behind the scenes at these various centers.
“My first Gathering felt like a meeting of peers and like minded souls, new found friends following a similar calling, even though it sometimes feels like a crazy vocation!”
For the last ten days I have been in China, attending the first ever Centers Gathering to be held in Asia. It has been a rich and rewarding experience and I hope this article will give some insight into why.
The central ethos of the Gathering is that we are stronger when we work together, and our world view is one of abundance. Technically we are all competitors, and the fact that we share problems, solutions, ideas and reflections openly is deeply inspiring.
There is a planetary transformation of consciousness
and these centers give people hope.
