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 ( 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.
