The Open Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is a physical and digital gathering place for the global conscious community to connect, heal, learn, create, dance and grow. As the longest-running urban holistic center in the country, we were founded in NYC in 1984 to address the stresses and anxiety that come from city dwelling—the same problems that are now widespread to everyone, everywhere. Our mission is to address these real life challenges of existence through holistic, spiritual and integrative practices to create a harmonious relationship between ourselves, each other and the planet.
