About The New York Open Center
The Open Center is a non-profit educational and cultural center offering programs intended to heal the body, nourish the soul and awaken the spirit. It aims to serve as a focal point for holistic thought and practice in the heart of New York City.

In the present global situation, where symptoms of profound ecological, spiritual, political and economic crisis face large segments of humanity, it aspires to be a place where life-enhancing, creative initiatives can be given voice.

In a time of dramatic change, it is devoted to the quest for meaning; in this materialistic epoch, it considers the exploration of life's deeper mysteries essential; and when the strains of urban existence numb, it seeks to stimulate aliveness and vitality among its community of guests, program participants, members, and staff.

Based on an open and comprehensive approach to the rich wisdom traditions of the world, the Center's goal is to offer a meeting place where people of shared values develop community.

Finally, the Open Center believes that a major key to the 21st Century is the adoption of a more holistic, ecological and spiritual worldview. The agenda therefore is clear: to assist the emergence of fresh insights and knowledge of this nature in whatever field or discipline they may appear.
