"Hi Ruscombe friends,
Thank you all so much for your help with the Qi Gong retreat this past weekend. It was an intensively dynamic and deeply restorative experience for all who came, and we were full to capacity. I am really honored to be able to host such a great teacher in this wonderful place and it would not be possible to do so without all the logistical and energetic support that the community and the property offers."
From event host Penny Morris, B.S., C.M.T., C.P.C.:
I just want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to rent space in The Conference Wellness Room in the Hill House at The Ruscombe Mansion. The entire facility, from the outdoor grounds to the interior space is so inviting and offers so much tranquility, warmth and efficiency. My clients love coming as much as I do! I love the community there! Thank you so much for all that you do to it an ideal sacred space for healing!
We're nearing the peak. On this part of the planet, we're coming closer to the sun. We're feeling its rays more directly than we will again till next June comes around. All this extra light, warmth and daytime has huge affects on our body, mind and spirit. And, like every season it's a mixed bag. There's no such thing as a blessing that's not mixed, I often say.

HAVE A WONDERFUL HEALTHY SUMMER
At the Ruscombe Mansion we address the unique needs of each individual by focusing on the whole person, not simply the physical symptom of disease. Dozens of certified, licensed holistic professionals in private practice provide an integrative approach to health care. It is a unique healing oasis where clients appreciate feeling listened to, and where practitioners naturally gain from each others' experiences.
