"I attended Ruth’s first retreat at the Boreal Ranch in May 2018, and honestly didn’t really know what I was in for. I didn’t know Ruth, other than skimming through her book, and I didn’t do any research beforehand. All I knew was that for a thousand reasons, I felt tired, and the word “retreat” sounded like something I definitely wanted to do.
It was my understanding that we would be doing lots of meditating and eating delicious food. We did both of these things, and both were on an entirely different level than I expected.
We went DEEP that weekend. Ruth opened up a safe environment for self-healing and helped us with some huge healing releases.
Nothing was necessary, and everything was possible. For me, that looked like letting down a lot of walls, letting go of a lot of fear and old patterning that wasn’t working for me, and letting in some help. Plus, lots of rest, fresh air, and eating.
Ruth herself offered all kinds of guidance and support, and was easy to connect with during meditation. No spoilers, but a few particular things she said over the course of the weekend literally changed my approach to a LOT of things in my everyday life, my job, and my relationships, and I find myself listening to her voice in my head on a regular basis since attending this retreat.
The staff at the Boreal Ranch were supportive and gave us the space we needed to do our thing, and the kitchen staff…omg. The food was outstanding in both taste and presentation, and I felt like I could taste that it was made with care and love.
Ruth is genuine in herself, and in her healing. That’s something I don’t question, and people like her have the ability to cause positive change in others. It is absolutely worth it to attend one of her retreats, get healing work from her, or check out one of her Embodied Energy Movement courses.
This weekend was nourishing in every was imaginable, and I would not miss another chance to have this experience again."
