The New York Open Center offers holistically-based educational programs to create positive transformation in individuals and the world. The New York Open Center was founded in 1984 with the intention of creating a forum for a new generation of seekers. Our founders felt there was an abundance of excellent spiritual teachers and practitioners in the New York City area without a physical space or destination in which to practice. With an event on the evening of January 13, 1984, the New York Open Center was born. The initial focus of the center was on spiritual values but the mission quickly expanded to include how our values and intentions lead us to participate in the wider world. Since then, the New York Open Center has evolved into an urban destination for holistic learning, personal development, professional advancement and enrichment. Programs are offered in spiritual inquiry and practice, psychology and self-development, holistic health, bodywork, movement and yoga, arts and creativity. The center also features concerts, performances and other special events. The Open Center is dedicated to making these educational and enriching opportunities available to anyone anywhere through online learning initiatives. Today, the New York Open Center presents more than 300 programs of exceptional depth and integrity to audiences totaling more than 10,000 annually.
The teacher was a lot of fun! I'm happy that I went and got outside of my comfort zone. The class was an intro to a lot of Tantra ideas and techniques.
This class focuses on time management, as the instructor believes it to be the root of disorganization. Well, that's not really my problem—I grew up in a multi-generational house of hoarders, so I really don't know where to start with keeping my apartment clean. I like to think that there's always room for improvement in any aspect of my life, but I really need to learn about getting organized, not how to track how much time I waste on distractions at work or how to run a meeting...
I took the Herbal Alternatives to Antibiotics class and it was great. Robin is a little scattered, but I don't mind since I am the same way. Plus, the amount of knowledge she provides more than makes up for it! She also brings in little tastings of teas, berries, mushrooms, etc. I had never heard of her before, but I am a huge fan now! I highly recommend this class.
It was interesting to attend a live event and I appreciated the unusual combination of the two personalities. But the conversation remained quite superficial. I was hoping for a deeper understanding of the Buddhist principles that underlie the compassion that guded the presenters' choices tin living more sensitively.
The class was great. Latecomers should not be allowed into the room. It was disturbing to the process
Very informative. I would recommend this class.
