When I first started coming to our center, I could not believe that Barbara and John Waterhouse offered EVERY class based on a love offering only. In the past, I had spent hundreds of dollars just to attend 1 class. Now everything was available! Immediately, I knew something was different here. Back then, there were still two organizations and I had been a part of each one. I almost cried when I found out that John and Barbara had our center as members for both organizations. Today, many of you have no idea what faith and love it took to bring us back into ONE united Center For Spiritual Living. John Waterhouse led that process. He will probably be one of those humble heroes who is far more famous after he makes his transition than he is right now.
Thank you John for KNOWING and DOING your purpose. Now, we all know that Barbara Waterhouse is dynamic and fun to hear. She is so much more. Barbara is one of the best teachers in the world. She lives her life out loud on stage. Barbara calls all of us, including other ministers, to BE MORE. She does it with humor, compassion and skill. Our center is also special due to our practioners, circle leaders, sanga leaders, and loving members. I love to just come over to visit during the week because there is always someone here who will give a hug, kind word and a laugh. I am entirely grateful for everyone who makes Center For Spiritual Living Asheville the BEST CENTER EVER! I love you all.
