Centre House

Centre House

A British fellowship founded in 1966 by New Age teacher Christopher Hills to provide training in yoga, meditation, awareness, and sensitivity development. The center consisted of a resident community that organizes special courses, lectures, and seminars. One activity was the Inward Bound course, which combined yoga and meditation with mountaineering and was designed to "discover and experience in depth the harmony between individuals and cosmos by development of the relationship between mind, body and Nature."

Hills left the community in the 1970s and went on to found the University of the Trees in Boulder Creek, California. Last known address: 10a, Airlie Gardens, London, W8 7AL, England.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
