"I was so excited to find a love-based spiritual community. For years, I had simply given up on church. I was tired of the fear and judgment. A friend told me about Oasis Rising Center and even invited me. I declined a number of times, then one day I decided to go, just once, so she would stop asking. Oasis Rising Center is different than regular church. It is about love and joy. Now I have a spiritual home." ~ J. Marcus
"I grew up in the New Thought tradition, but I was only familiar with one denomination. When I got to town, I thought there was no New Thought Spiritual Community. Then I looked online and found Oasis Rising Center in the www.FindACenter.com directory. I am so happy that I found a local New Thought Center and the difference is not that great."
"My life was defined by rules and codes. After my father died, my brother was the 'enforcer'. If my mother, my sisters or myself 'stepped out of line' he would 'show us the way.' We had to wear certain clothes and were not allowed to talk to people who were not part of our religion. I was blessed with a scholarship to university. My brother had different plans. I was supposed to marry boss. One the day of high school graduation, I packed my school backpack with what I could and took off for University. I never went back. I am afraid of what he would do. I never thought I would find a healthy spiritual community, then I found Oasis Rising Center. I am happy I discovered a real spiritual path, an alternative, a place where I can be me. I am free. I love it."
