I've been visiting this place, a place I have called home, for about 7 to 8 years now. I felt familiar with it, with how it operates, and with all that goes on here. Having moved in last week and spending a full week volunteering here... so much new information! Whether it was finding a room that I didn't know existed or completing a task I hadn't known about, I learned a lot about this new home of mine.

Surely a lot of what I did know still stands, but I'm in for a lot of good new experiences during my yearlong volunteer experience. Even learning about the surrounding area has been a change! I got to hike at the Black Creek Preserve (literally down the road from us), and explore New Paltz and Kingston a little bit.
Retreats, meetings, camps, and spiritual activities all occur here. I'm excited to get a look at all that occurs at the Center, and all the good that comes from it.
Allow yourself the opportunity to learn something new about a space that you feel fully familiar with. Start anew in a place you've been for weeks, months, or years. You'll be surprised at what you discover. It's a new beginning in a familiar place.
