In twenty seven years the New York Open Center has become the world’s largest urban center for holistic learning and world culture.
It presents annually over five hundred programs, workshops, lectures, professional trainings and conferences in five primary disciplines: spirituality and world religions, health and wellnesss, psychology and inner development, social and ecological transformation, and creativity and the arts.
The Open Center holds a unique place in the cultural life of New York, and is dedicated to the holistic, spiritual and ecological worldview that is so deeply needed if we are to find our way to a more sane and viable future.
Ralph White, co-founder and creative director of the New York Open Center, will be attending the 2012 Gathering at the Findhorn Foundation and has attended every Gathering since inception. He hosts the Open Center radio show on WBAI, writes and teaches on consciousness and culture, and has been close to the heart of three major holistic centers. Ralph also edits Lapis Magazine online and has led international conferences on the Western tradition for 15 years.
