Out of Silence:
The Spirit of Christmas
Bruce and Ruth Davis
"Step out of the busy-ness of daily life and into the sanctuary
of your heart."
Give yourself the greatest gifts of the season: simplicity, silence, joy.
Immerse yourself in the true Advent. This contemplative weekend will
be an opening into the silent peace of our own hearts. The teachings and
sacred movement will focus on softening our awareness and honoring our
humanness. We will invite the light, unique beauty and hope of our essence
to find a home in our lives.
Bruce and Ruth Davis live in Assisi, Italy and offer retreats at their
internationally-renowned retreat center, named one of the top ten retreat
centers in the world by Travel and Leisure magazine, is a haven for those
seeking spiritual healing and renewal. Bruce is the author of The Calling
