From Spiritual Essence who hosted a 2-day yoga retreat:

"I also want to say they everyone had a great time at the retreat and the facility was just great.  I am so glad that we found Ruscombe." 

Another "thank you" from event host and acupuncturist Diana Keener:

"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!

Sunroom Fundraiser

Have you enjoyed our Sunroom? It’s a hidden treasure of the original Mansion building, where sunlight is bright and warm in late autumn and early spring—it’s just the place for a quiet lunch or talk. Many of our house plants spend the warm months there, and some hardy souls even live there all year. But right now the Sunroom is in trouble.

Leaks have penetrated the roof and parts of the structure have rotted, and fixing it is going to cost more than we can budget without some special help.. We need to raise funds this summer to leave enough time to complete the work before the weather turns. Can you help us preserve this special Ruscombe spot with a donation?

Goal: $7400
