About the Pari Center
The Pari Center provides a space where people can gather together, to learn from one another, to discuss, to reflect, to work on a project and, most importantly, to meet and talk with others at the human and personal level.
This is Pari, our home
A medieval village set in the heart of Tuscany, surrounded by gentle hills, and rich in values and history. F. David Peat saw Pari as a vessel and a safe haven, where there is “something of great value that could be carried into our common future.”

Physicist and philosopher David Bohm used the term holoflux (alternately holomovement) as the metaphysical foundation for his well-known vision of the ‘implicate order.’ By holoflux, Bohm was pointing to an underlying movement of vast scale, which gives rise to all of existence, both seen and unseen.
Beginning in 2020, a group of 30 people began a sustained inquiry into the real-life implications of this vision, clustered around a few core questions: Is there some actuality behind the word ‘holoflux’? If so, what does it look like? What does it feel like? What is a human being’s relationship to such a primordial phenomenon? Can we gain direct experience of it, actively participate in its movement?
Holoflux: Codex is a collection of artistic impressions and philosophical reflections arising from this two-year experiment that explores the states of consciousness that arise when ‘entering Bohm’s holoflux.’ It is the work of six individuals who shared their insights and experiences as the experiment unfolded.

Entering Bohm’s Holoflux
By Lee Nichol
Download the beautifully illustrated book by Lee Nichol – Entering Bohm’s Holoflux, which documents the highlights of a 15-part video series sponsored by the Pari Center.
Bohm’s vision for dialogue is crystal clear—he speaks of three aspects of human experience—the individual, the collective, and the cosmic. Entering Bohm’s Holoflux addresses the full spectrum of David Bohm’s work with dialogue, with emphasis on the individual and cosmic aspects, which are often neglected in many presentations of Bohm’s work. Lee Nichol’s Entering Bohm’s Holoflux explores portions of a forty-year inquiry into ‘individual’ work, as well as more recent probings into what Bohm might have been indicating by the ‘cosmic’ dimension of the human being.
It is offered free, in the spirit of furthering true inquiry into the nature of human being.
