Victor W. ~ Switzerland, April 2016 This is by far the most beautiful & exquiste experience I have had in a long time. Under the gentle, competent guidance of two dear fellow humans, Brenda and David, I was brought me back to my inner self. I will never forget the blissful hours of meditation and the walks through back streets and up to the Eremo of Assisi - the picture-book town where one feels embraced by the spirits of both St. Francis and St. Clare.
Regina A. ~ London England, March 2016 We had a fantastic time at the Assisi Retreat. We look forward to coming back in the future. The place is beautiful, and we had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds it! Everything is very welcoming and comfortable. Our retreat leader was a huge support. Brenda guided us through our meditation sessions and meditative movement. She was always so incredible helpful and inspiring! All in all, I did enjoy this opportunity of enlightenment, and hope to live up to all the beautiful things I have learned with her. I will be sending you some pictures from our stay. Thank you very much !!
Maria T. ~ Netherlands, October 2015 I was in serious need of tranquility and peace. The process immediately started when I booked with Ruth Davis as she arranged the taxi for me and an additional night in a wonderful hotel called 'La Posta Panoramica' ~ Nothing was too much for Ruth. I enjoyed every moment walking through the quiet streets and all the nature calling you, the swallows, the Assisi bells, sitting under the old olive trees of San Damiano, watching butterflies, wasps, birds, cicadas, lizards, crickets – you name it. Time flies there by doing nothing.
We stayed mostly silent or just whispered about relevant things. It was a great experience not having to talk about oneself or inquire on other people’s life. There came a time at the end of the week where we opened up. It was also a great lesson to learn not to judge people as you don’t know their back ground.
Linda welcomed us with open arms and her wonderful smile. She led the meditations and yoga or movement meditations. She was also open for other suggestions like QiGong. Others enjoyed Linda’s healing hands during massages; for me it was bliss to receive an occasional hug. She radiates so much love and happiness. When David, the retreat leader, joined us on Wednesday the five of us had already built a strong bond. David joined the group with great care and wisdom. I enjoyed his mediations and tapping into his vast knowledge. I wished we had more time.
I am not so much into religious aspect and had sometimes to distance myself from references to the Saints but it never disturbed my way of finding peace or getting into a meditative state of mind. Linda and David never preached anything. Linda and David… you are wonderful individuals and a great team.
Bruce Davis’ books were very helpful for me and touched me. Coincidence – I don’t think so. Thank you Linda, David, Ruth and Bruce! Love and Peace to all people in the world.
Regina K. ~ London England, March 2015 I enjoyed every minute of my stay in this blessed place. The retreat leader was an angel. Peace and love can be found here. It is very difficult to describe my experience because it is in my heart and soul. I wish I could stay longer and I certainly will come back. I want to express my deep gratitude to Ruth& Bruce..
Elisa N. ~ Dusseldorf Germany, November 2013 I have enjoyed both my stays at Assisi retreat, the first at 2012 and the second in 2013. I went there to find connection to my inner self, enhance my meditation practise and simply to enjoy beatiful surroundings and silence. I was greeted with wonderful atmosphere and lovely surroundings. The peace that I experienced at the retreat stayed with me for a long time after.. I am looking forward to the day when I can return to Assisi again. At the end of the retreats people were requesting a possibility to stay longer and that is what I would have wanted to do as well.
Mena C. ~ Toronto Canada, April 2014 I was at a very low point in my life and for once I decided to do something for myself. I live in Toronto and yes there are many retreats in Canada, but I chose Italy because Italy is incredibly peaceful and people in Italy live for 'today' and not for tomorrow. They do not worry about tomorrow because it is not now. Ruth and Bruce Davis have created an incredibly wonderful space for people to transform in tranquility and solace. Through my many tears, laughter and peacefulness, I was transported to a place of clarity. God Bless you Ruth, Bruce, David and Linda
