Retreat Testimonials


This week has been a call to freedom, an invitation to let regrets and old restrictions die and to identify with the new things happening within me with my spiritual life. I feel as if good things are ahead of me no matter the circumstances. Where else but Genesis could this unfold?           

I can’t thank you enough for your love and care this week. It was wonderful to experience the art of Focusing. Needless to say, I couldn’t have been in a better place when learning of my grandson’s death. Feeling the blessing in being in everyone’s thoughts and prayers gave me a feeling of God’s family.

Genesis offers stillness and healing of the heart that is rare – a gem in western Massachusetts. The warmth and kindness of the sisters and all the staff makes/allows that gem to shine even more deeply and even more brightly. So much lovely generosity for which I am grateful.

Faith makes all things possible, and love makes them easy. Faith in God is never out of season. Faith justifies the believer, but love justifies his faith by the works which it produces. Faith believes God to be true; love proves faith to be true.
- Charles H. Spurgeon
