Ralph White came to America in the early 1970s while the Vietnam War was still raging. On his Christmas break while teaching courses in Chicago he drove Route 66 to Los Angeles. In the desert of New Mexico he had his first spiritually transcendent experience. He says, “I felt like my mind expanded in consort with the scope of the landscape: seeing the vast stars above, the silence, and just the scale of the landscape.” All this was accompanied by the soundtrack of George Harrison playing My Sweet Lord. “I was having these profound experiences and if they were real then nothing could be more important...I made the decision to follow my heart and investigate.” And his heart took him to Canada, later driving from Vancouver through Central America, ending up in Peru and Ecuador. He received his “life assignment” in Machu Picchu and that was an insight about the need to create a more holistic and ecological world and culture and society. He started the Open Center in New York to do just that. Later, he had many other exciting and enlightening travel experiences including an undercover trek into Tibet and being in Russia during Glasnost. He also shares with us the importance of the teachings of Rudolph Steiner. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
