Greetings Friends of Ruscombe,
When I founded Ruscombe in 1984, my vision was to offer holistic healing options in one location. The reason for this was to facilitate a person’s healing more quickly than if a person had to travel looking for the many options that were then difficult to find. Today, thirty-four years later, acupuncture, naturopathy, herbal healing, massage, and other therapeutics we feature are more prevalent in our society. The Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center remains the longest freestanding outpatient integrative center in America offering numerous ancient and modern healing options.
All institutions grow and change, and change is occurring now at Ruscombe three decades later. Astrologically, the entire world is in the throes of institutional change and individual transformation as seen by a Pluto square Mars dynamic, a fiery challenge to all systems, inner and outer, personal and collective. It’s a time of unexpected interruptions and opportunities for novel creation. This planetary configuration, which will last for another 15 years or so, accelerates change for the entire world.

This now-famous bus was on the Ruscombe property back when it was the Savitria Commune and AUM Esoteric Study Center, and we’re hoping that someone from the Ruscombe community of clients and friends may remember it from way back then.
If you know anyone who was connected with the Savitria community or the early days of AUM, would you please ask them to contact us if they have any memories of this bus?
