"That’s a Wrap! Last week we experienced Creative Alchemy, my new retreat where entrepreneurs used stillness, beauty, play, nature, energy alchemy and the synergy of people like themselves to realize what they no longer needed from their current business, visions, and lives to discover and craft what comes next. And it was such a pleasure to be with all of you! I can’t wait to see your new clarity take shape in the world! I'm looking forward to the new faces as we launch into our next retreat coming in December.
Ruthanne and I connected right away. For 25 years she has been crafting her dream to host events that inspire while nourishing all who come and it shows. There are pockets for solitude, play, and conversation throughout the property with every detail considered. Being an outdoor lover myself, I love the way Ruthanne has given visitors the most opportunity to be in relationship with nature. Host your event here, take a weekend away, go glamping where Heaven and Earth are indeed one."

"Words cannot express my experience with Ruthanne. It was magical, relaxing, peaceful, energizing and calming. I was only there for about 24 hours on a quick personal retreat to recharge my batteries. It all starts the moment you hop on to highway 26 (if you're from Portland) and make your way past Hillsboro and start to enter the country side. The leaves are starting to change colors, things start to slow down and as you make your way to Ruthanne's place you start to feel farther and farther away from the business of life. As I arrived and drove up to her drive way, I was blown away at how beautiful her home and land are--again words cannot do it justice. Ruthanne greeted me with open arms, offered me a glass of wine and took time to show me around her place--not just the tent that I had booked. My immediate thought was to not want to tell anyone about her place so that only I could ever enjoy it. Ha! Needless to say I started taking pictures and immediately sent them to my friends and family. The tent itself is spectacular. It sits in front of her pond with an amazing deck to hangout, grill, meditate, yoga--whatever you want. It has a stove, a fridge, well stocked kitchen utensils, an amazing heater but most importantly a bed that you can stay in for days. You can close the tent at night for more privacy if you wish--I did at night. I read a lot, wrote and practiced yoga during my 24 hours with Ruthanne. She is the ultimate host, a person with a big heart and full of positive energy that radiated through my entire stay with Ruthanne. I will be back."
