Toronto, Canada - and I forgot to add Kabbalah as well as more "mainstream"
Judaism, Islam, neo-paganism, Ojibwa spirituality, and a bunch of other
thing that escape me at the moment. Pretty much everything is represented
here - but I would suspect you'd find the same thing in many or most major
cities in North America if you look for it - esp. cities in California, NYC,
and Boston. Shambhala books is based in Boston (www.shambhala.com) and
monasteries, yoga retreats, etc. are springing up all over Mass. and upstate
New York. Colorado has the Naropa institute (a university of Buddhist
psychology, in Denver I believe, with a twin in Halifax, Nova Scotia), and I
understand there are a couple of Zen monasteries in California.
What's especially interesting is that the more I learn about different
contemplative & mystical practices - Sufi, Buddhist, Taoist, Christian,
Kabbalist, Hindu, etc., the more I find they have in common.
