An evening with author Ralph White

Please join us to welcome author Ralph White for the presentation and signing of his new bookThe Jeweled Highway ~ On the Quest for a Life of Meaning’. The evening will feature a special introduction by Dr. Leonard George.

Monday, October 5th, 7pm to 9pm
Free Admission / Seating is Limited

In 1984 Ralph White co-founded the New York Open Center – America’s leading urban center of holistic learning. He initiated the “Esoteric Quest” in 1995 – a series of conferences, open to all – with little sense that a twenty year (and counting) exploration of the Western Esoteric Tradition would result.

Ralph’s own search for meaning has taken him on many adventures in South America and Tibet, and led him to become deeply involved in supporting the worldwide emergence of a holistic and ecological worldview. His new book recalls his childhood in Wales; adolescence in gritty Northern England; and later, his distinguished pioneering role in multiple centers of spiritual learning.

An excerpt from the preface to The Jeweled Highway ~ On the Quest for a Life of Meaning by American psychotherapist and author Thomas Moore:

“…Ralph White’s narrative offers direction to current voyagers and travelers on the way out of materialistic insanity into meaning. Don’t glorify any truth or tradition. Participate. Participate. Feel the insights and discoveries of others. Don’t restrict yourself to any truth. Open your heart to the most lowly practitioners of wisdom. Don’t succumb to the lures of the sweet and the lofty. Remain loyal to the lowly and the grimy. Stay grounded, even as you explore the highest.”

Tibetan Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman, writes: “If you want to know where we’ve been and where we’re headed in these times of great danger and opportunity, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”

About Hierophany:

hiero: the sacred
phany: appearance

Contemplating the ‘space in-between’ is a theme to which I’ve returned for many years. For me, the dynamic place where things overlap – where the boundaries are blurred – is where the divine sometimes shows itself and where creativity is born.

Someone very dear to me was recently plunged into one of these liminal realms as the result of a coma, so for a time late last summer the concept of a place between worlds was especially on my mind. The images in ‘Hierophany’ were shot at Rice Lake this past September after a day of walking in the forest for hours, trying to come to terms with the fate of my friend.

Our long dry summer had left the lake uncommonly low – exposing a boarder of natural forms rarely seen, and offering the perfect metaphor for that ‘space in-between’.

Miraculously, my friend Georgia has resurfaced and is much recovered. This exhibition is dedicated to her, with my gratitude for having been led to find so many hidden things revealed.
