"Dear Ruth, David and our Assisi Retreat Team,
I want to thank you for the incredible experience I had at Assisi Retreats. We had an outstanding retreat leader and guide, plus the entire week was a dream for me. I feel that the retreat transformed my way of thinking about myself and life and I am very grateful. I hope to return next year. Thank you so much for this wonderful treasure you are giving to people !!"

"Dearest Linda and David, It was such a wonderful experience to spend these days in your welcoming presence & retreat, in these amazing surroundings. Given that I normally do not really have (or make?) the time, I feel that this was such a great opportunity to slow down, to breath, and to do some real good soul searching. I feel that I was able here to reconnect with my soul, and I've gained some really important insights, like the things which really make me tick. This is not finished now and I will continue to search and connect and enjoy life to the fullest! A life in which I will ensure to incorporate morning meditation and yoga. I am sure that I will often think back to the peace of Assisi and your teachings in yoga and meditation."

"It was the most fruitful and joyous retreat I have ever been on. The fact that it was held in Assisi at a beautiful family Pensione means that we could also go to the many spiritual centers within walking distance. We meditated at each center and the effect was overwhelming. You quickly learn that Assisi is one of the power spots of the world. Add in Linda & David's kindness, tailoring your experience and you have the ingredients for a most profound and life changing experience."
Mena C. ` Toronto Canada, April 2015
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 & Brenda
