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.
Great class. Melissa covered a lot of useful techniques for whatever ails you. She demonstrated and explained very well. I liked that several days of info was consolidated into one day. I highly recommend this class both for beginners and for those, like me, who are very familiar with clinical hypnosis. Something for everyone.
I have never taken a class like this before however, I really did enjoy the class.
The class was very interesting.
The class was very interesting and informative.
Priti had a really relaxed style about herself that immediately set the group at ease. And I thought it was great to offer a free into class in advance of purchasing the series. Thanks so much!
Not a lot of time was spend on taking photos. Don't feel like I got much out of the class.
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.
