I always feel so nurtured, welcomed and loved here. It is beautiful, peaceful and the food is fabulous!
The Center for New Beginnings has been a "home away from home" for me! The nurturing, warmth with which we are welcomed, along with the natural beauty of the land, beckons me to visit at least once a year.
We truly love you and cherish all the ways you have nurtured us and supported us this weekend! We look forward to a long association with you and honor all the work you do here at the Center that makes this world more peaceful, sane, and joyous place to live!
(Upon my stay at Center for New Beginnings, Summer, 2008)
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate knowing there is a place named Center For New Beginnings where people of all spiritual paths may go for renewal of Spirit. I have been attending retreats and workshops at the Center off and on since 1994 and have sound grounding in my path as a result. One special memory I hold dear is of our group gathering at the Reflecting pool down in the woods and doing a deep meditation for one of our members who had died. It was a sad and uplifting experience. Friday I walked to the Reflecting Pool and remembered times past. It was beautiful and full of water. I am attaching some pictures I took. Again, thank you for providing such a place full of Spirit.
The Center for New Beginnings is a wonderful retreat center for groups. Athens Regional Medical Center's Mind Body Institute help our first Silent Retreat there last New Year, and we had a great experience. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very reasonable in price. Our meeting space was lovely, and could accommodate our yoga practice, tables and chairs, and had back-jacks, cushions and blankets available.
The staff were accommodating and friendly, but not intrusive. However, no comment about the Center would be complete without mention of the wonderful food! We had several people on medically restricted diets and some vegans in our group and all of our needs were deliciously met. It was a great experience!
Finally, the best recommendation I can give is that we already have reservations for this year's retreat and we already have registrants!
SO RICH THE GREEN
So rich the green,
The power and the beauty
And alive-ness gently
As dappled light plays
The awesome display
The in-ward and the out
