We recently sent out a guest feedback request and we were overwhelmed with amazing reviews. Thank you everyone that responded! Published studies show that keeping a gratitude journal or openly expressing what you are grateful for can help improve your emotional and physical wellbeing! During this season of giving thanks, please accept our sincere expression of immense gratitude to all of our retreatants, past and future. Below are some of your favorite things that we heard from you about your time spent at OM Sanctuary. May we continue to inspire healthy lifestyle practices through holistic education and a connection to nature. “The OM Sanctuary provides a retreat environment to refresh and renew your mind, body and soul.” -Christine Pearson, Kennesaw, GA. “It’s a peaceful place to regain your sense.” -Neil Caudle, Pittsboro, NC. “The resort provided a quiet and private sanctuary.” -Elizabeth Hooker, Charlotte, NC. “When we visited your site, neither myself nor my husband Jacques had any idea this was to be our final trip together. He passed away June 18th. We both loved our visit and our quiet talks during breakfast with your executive director. We were already coping with illness but your beautiful accommodations created a final romantic memory for us. Thank you so much!” -Denise Korn, Atlanta, GA. “OM Sanctuary provided a delightful place for my friends and I to reconnect, re-energize, and recover from the school year.” -Anna Discenzo, Cleveland, OH. “The cabin I stayed in was so peaceful – no clocks and no tvs. Just a beautiful room surrounded by beautiful nature.” -Paige Jordan, Kannapolis, NC. “We had a wonderful four days staying, relaxing, and renewing at OM. We left with more energy, excitement, and wonderful memories than we could have hoped for.” -Joe Green, Washington, D.C. “When I entered my second floor room overlooking the garden, I felt a sense of calm begin to permeate my body.

Recently we asked past retreatants to tell us more about how OM Sanctuary has supported their personal growth through our mission to inspire healthy lifestyle practices through holistic education and connection with nature. Understanding how stress impacts physical health and mood, our retreat focuses diligently on creating a peaceful environment to assist you in finding your sanctuary within. Your reflections inspire us to keep the mission and the vision close to “OM”. With so many wonderful experiences coming to us, we have decided to offer at least one blog post per month called, “Retreatant Reflections.” Here is Alex Wood’s OM Sanctuary experience: “My fiancé and I got engaged on September 25th and I planned a weekend getaway to celebrate our new engagement. We are both school teachers, so rarely do we have time to slow down and be still. I found OM Sanctuary while researching and it sounded too good to be true. However, we arrived and it was just as beautiful as the pictures. We participated in yoga, meditation, massages and still had time to slow down and read in the garden. The room was of superior quality and had a great view of the garden. Asheville is also a culturally rich place to visit. We traveled from Kentucky to visit and returned home rejuvenated.” -Alex Wood, London, KY. From all of us here at OM Sanctuary, thank you Alex! When you take care of yourself, you have the ability to touch the lives of others in a more balanced way. Warmly, The OM Sanctuary Team. Do you have an OM Sanctuary experience to share?
