What Others Are Saying

The Center for Well Being of Austin offered me the amazing opportunity to know the truth about myself. Taking that opportunity transformed my life. I'll be eternally grateful to this organization and the work of Kate A. Bares

R&R has lent itself to the strongest, deepest soul connections I have experienced with human beings. In those moments, I have known God. That would be the bottom line for me.

Taking the first step toward spiritual growth and/or healing is the gateway. I've found so many answers through my work at the Center…answers to questions I didn't even know I needed to be asking! Most amazingly, I have found friends who accept me and celebrate the gifts I have to offer, and who are committed to a lifestyle of integrity and truth. People I can learn from and share with!

What an amazing experience R&R is! To be welcomed with open arms into this community has been a blessing. Not only have I resolved some misconceptions of myself, I have made long-time friends who are on this wonderful journey of life with me. Thank you, Kate!
