A peek behind the scenes: discussions on starting, running and growing a holistic centre
Each year, centres from around the world gather at a conference known as The International Holistic Centres Gathering. The Haven is hosting the 2014 Gathering, and afterwards is offering this program, which ran very successfully at Esalen in 2013. If you are dreaming of starting a holistic center or are simply curious about how centers do what they do, consider joining this program for what is sure to be a weekend of rich discussion. This isn’t a step-by-step process on how to start a retreat center, however there will be representatives from various established retreat centers available to explain the beginnings of their organizations and how they conduct business. Representatives from The Haven and other retreat centers will facilitate this program. Together they represent over 100 years of experience in running centres.
Faculty: Tom Robinson, Peter Moore (both from Breitenbush Hot Springs, Ralph White (New York Open Center) , Rachel Davey (Executive Director, The Haven), Christine Lines (Findhorn Foundation), Cheryl Fraenzl (Esalen).
