Slowly and steadily, the New York Open Center and the many other institutions worldwide with similar commitments, has worked to bring a new and sustainable worldview into focus, one that places the emphasis on holistic, ecological and spiritual values rather than the outdated obsession with endless consumerism.
We remain devoted to a green, just and multicultural world in which individuals can awaken to their true natures and foster love and freedom throughout the planet. Celebrating 35 years, the ideals with which the Open Center began remain as relevant as ever!
As a predominately white organization, OAEC navigates the waters of how to be in ally-ship with people of color in the social movement world. We realized after years of focus on our external work, we needed to do some inner work as a Collective to meet the needs of those we were welcoming into our spaces.
We held conversations about how we noticed patterns within ourselves and/or in society that perpetuate the dominant culture that oppresses others. We discovered we were able to begin the change towards our own individual liberation and thus our collective liberation.
Holistic leadership involves a variety of ideas and practices, such as management by objectives, that can contribute to the productivity and overall well-being of staff. Although many of its principles run counter to modern intuitions about success in business, taking time to slow down and think more carefully can actually have a significant impact on our skills as a leader.
Wisdom 2.0 – the meeting of mindfulness and technology – is a great example of blending these skill sets. Blending holistic skills with best business practices, while staying true to our values, can help us thrive in impactful ways.
There is a planetary transformation of consciousness and these centers give people hope.Ralph White
