'A place to be'. This is the way we describe our retreat in North Wales. For so many of us life is full of 'doing' and the opportunities for 'being' are few and far between. Yet the
advantages of taking time out from the normal routine of our lives can be really worthwhile. Retreats can refresh body, mind and spirit. We encourage those who have spent time at Ruach Retreat to tell us how the experience has been for them. What follows are some comments from retreatants. We have changed names to safeguard confidentiality.

Mary, part of a group quiet day that David led, wrote, "Thank you . . . for your welcome, caring and generous hospitality and meaningful input. What an amazing location. I was in need of the opportunity to experience the sense of calm and quiet reflection that is so hard to find in our busy world and the day certainly did not disappoint".

John, an individual day retreatant, said, "I want to say thank you so very much for my quiet day with you. Your lovely home is full of the peace of the Lord and it was a joy to just be there. Thank you for your thoughtful hospitality and fellowship at lunch plus prayers. I felt very 'spoilt' and every detail of the day was great, including your homemade soup and biscuits!"

Jean, a woman who stayed for 3 days, reflected, "Peace enfolded me as I walked through the front door. It has been so good to let go of the 'busyness' and 'challenges of life'. David and Zoya gave me the freedom to be, cooked tasty meals, listened to me and prayed with me — wonderful. An oasis of peace".

But don't just take their word for it! How about coming yourself and 'being' in the space to feel the peace that Ruach Retreat offers? You can come for the day on your own, with a group, or you can stay longer as a residential retreatant. We look forward to welcoming you to our home retreat.
