Our 2018 webinar series began by exploring ‘The Value of Diversity and Inclusion in our Holistic Centers’ hosted by the Omega Institute in upstate New York.
This is an area Omega have been actively diving into for nearly four years and they offered practical tools that we can all learn from. It also served to deepen the collective conversation as we prepare for our annual gathering in May with diversity as our over arching theme.
A powerful vision statement was created, recognising the systems of inequality and injustice embedded in society and the importance of cultivating awareness around how this plays out. The culture keeps becoming richer as this vision comes alive.
After a 30+ year history of Centers Gatherings being held around the world, we’ve been growing into a more formal organisation in the last twelve months. An Executive Director has been in role since December 2016 and the Board grew from three members to six in 2017. In the next month you’ll notice a new look to the website as we strengthen our online presence.
The Holistic Centers Network (HCN) provides creative networking opportunities that strengthen communication, connection and collaboration among holistic centers and hosts the annual Centers Gathering. HCN and Centers Gathering are the primary initiatives of the Breitenbush Eco Fund, a non-profit social benefit organization based in Oregon, USA.
During a ten day visit to China, Christine Lines represented the Holistic Centers Network and Findhorn Foundation in cross cultural meetings in Beijing, Xi’an and Chengdu.
Deepening our connections and strengthening the holistic bridge between East and West, there is much we can learn from each other. From holistic awareness, holistic leadership, emotional intelligence and community building, to healing and sustainability through personal and spiritual growth.
We’re delighted to share our collaboration with the Orenda Community, Bene Wellness Institute, Stage Ai and Haiwen, as together we respond to the needs of these times.
For our November webinar Doshin Roshi, Integral Zen Master, poet, friend, teacher and troublemaker, shared deep insight from 50 years of serious meditation practice and profound understanding of Integral theory through the work of Ken Wilber.
I’m struck by his understanding of many of the challenges we struggle with – collaborative decision making, over sensitivity, emphasis on feelings, lack of accountability, rejection of hierarchies, limited financial sustainability – and the remedies to evolve.
We invite you to continue the conversation with us as we dive deeper over the coming months.
