Coming to Ruth

I just called Ruth Denison to ask what I should bring for the upcoming women's retreat with her. Sleeping bag, warm clothes, pillow. . . ?

"Nothing, dahling, you don't need to bring anything, only an open heart. And make sure to turn off critical voice inside, the one that says "I don't like this. That's not what I thought . . . " you know? As long as you do that, you'll be fine."

Yes, Ruth, coming into your world with open heart, open mind . . .

  1. Love that. I wish I could go too. Look forward to hearing about it!

    I have the book that Sandy Boucher (who I did a retreat with once) wrote about Ruth right next to my bed. But I've been too busy to read it.
