Bruce has been guiding retreats worldwide since 1983 and leads the daily sitting meditations. His teachings are based in his deep connection to silence, simplicity and heartfulness. He has a gift for guiding people from the busy-ness of the mind into the wisdom of the quiet heart. He is a teacher of world religions and combines psychology and spirituality to create a rich understanding of human potential. Together Bruce and Ruth created two retreat centers in Assisi, Italy where they lived for 12 years. They returned to California in 2012.
