I found Ruth to be a great facilitator. I appreciated her willingness to meet every participant with compassion, and without judgement, as well as her willingness to be vulnerable herself. I feel this was part of the magic that created such a safe environment.  --Rising Strong™ Participant

"Ruth Williamson saved me, that is not an overstatement.  I can’t begin to say enough about how wonderful she is.  Kind, compassionate, smart, tenacious, tough…I could go on and on.  Working with Ruth was the best decision I’ve made in a long time."  S.G., Bend
 
"I have found over many years of "retreating," that the real value of a retreat is not in the moments immediately after, but in the months (and even years) after.  I am pleased to share that the work we did and the actions I committed to have taken root."  C.M., Seattle
 
"I knew I needed help with my business. The surprise: I learned a lot about myself. Ruth guided me with trusting, compassionate hands. The self-knowledge that unfolded helped me to move forward in my business and in my life."  J.E., Bend
 
"Vulnerability is not a bad word. You helped show me that vulnerability can lead to my own self discovery." Nicole
