For over 35 years HCN has been dedicated to serving holistic education centers all around the world. These centers focus on all aspects of sustainable living, with the intention to transform our direct experience through a deepening connection with ourselves, each other, nature and the spirit of life.
As many of us spend more time in the virtual world and centers pivot to create supportive online offerings, we discover it is possible to share love, learning and connection in this way. In person and hybrid events will hopefully be possible in time to come. For now we share a range of tools, services and practices to nourish us during this time. We invite you to be in touch so we can expand upon the offerings shared here. You might also find ideas to further serve your community as together we emerge stronger.
Our Virtual Gathering has been a heartwarming experience and we noticed an element of surprise around an emerging idea… sharing love and connection IS, indeed, possible in the virtual world. Online events will never replace the in-person experiences we love and value. However there IS a loving harmony to be found between humans, nature, and technology. In fact, this is one of the most powerful ways to increase impact, connection, and revenue for centers around the globe.
The New York Open Center has announced the launch of New Yorkers for New York, a free public service created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The service will provide frontline and essential workers, as well as all other local residents struggling with stress and anxiety, the mental and emotional wellness support they need right now amidst the city’s current health crisis. The program will offer an array of free tools, resources and services.
We are all involved with values-driven organizations founded on service to our guests and an educational curriculum based on human potential, sustainable principles and conscious evolution. Our work in developing and sharing holistic education has never been more pertinent to the human commons. Join us and many others involved in the holistic movement at Meeting the Moment, the first virtual International Holistic Centers Gathering, May 3 – 7, 2020.
There is a planetary transformation of consciousness and these centers give people hope.Ralph White
