Ruscombe Mansion Open House Sunday, October 8, 2006 Was an Inspiring Success!

Our annual community outreach event offered free presentations and demonstrations to our friends and neighbors introducing them to our healing arts. We enjoyed an uplifting day of fellowship and delicious, healthy snacks provided by our mostly-vegetarian chef, the Itinerant Cook. We indulged with yoga by the lily pond and nourished your wellness at the Ruscombe Mansion Open House.
