Dear Marsha and Fred,

Wow! What a trip, I’ve never been busier in my life, Dunwoody certainly tok 1st place. I’m so happy with how it all went. It certainly was a lot of work for all of us but we reached quite a few people, it was worth it.

I just need to thank you again for supporting me and my work in macrobiotics, it really is a pleasure to teach at your lovely home.

The contribution you both are making to your community is so wonderful, just don’t forget to nurture yourselves. I’m working on that too.

Lots of love, Warren Kramer, Senior Macrobiotic Counselor, Boston, Massachusetts.

 

Dear Marsha and Fred,

Well, another awesome week has come to a close … or maybe I should say just to be continued, I can’t wait.

A number of years ago when I first began studying with Michio Kushi he talked about the idea “One Grain, Ten Thousand Grains” – giving back to people, humanity, that much more than what we received. He told us that living that way really was important for true health and gratitude.

I want to thank the two of you for truly living in the spirit of “One Grain, Ten Thousand Grains”. You’ve given so much back to macrobiotics and your community. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute to people as well. Lots of love,

Warren Kramer, Senior Macrobiotic Counselor, Boston, Massachusetts

 

Dear Fred and Marsha

You are two of the most dearest people on this planet. Both of you radiate love and compassion. We have been blessed a hundred-fold with your willingness to share your wonderful, magnificent home. It is so beautiful just like the two of you.

This truly will be one of the highlights of an already fabulous trip. YOu are providing such a healing loving environment for those who come to stay with you.

Blessing of love to you both always,

Carole A Rose, Detroit

 

Marsha, Fred, Lisa,

I have so enjoyed your sharing your home and meals with me and other macrobiotic guests! The week-end with you and Fuji has been a wonderful experience of relaxing, learning and opening up to new healing techniques, new colors – with Rex – and new horizons!. I commend you, Marsha, for your fabulous cooking and your altruism in spreading the macrobiotic word.

 Love and peace, A. Nelson, Johnson City, TN

 

Dear dear Marsha and Fred,

Thank you for everything … your love and pampering. I feel loved, looked after and pampered. May you both be eternally blessed for ally you have done and given me. Fred, your smile is so special. Marsha, the food, ambiance and your group here are superb. Once again, thank you.

Love Always, ML, Glen Osmond, Australia

 

Dear Marsha and Fred,

Can these trips possibly get any better? It seems that each one is more awesome than the previous. We all had a wonderful time dancing to the Backstreet Boys in the kitchen while preparing great food. It’s no wonder why our meals had so much energy and we all were so hippy!

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making this and all of the trips possible. I couldn’t do this without you. The community here is so fortunate to have you both.

I’m looking forward to March already …Your fellow body scrubber and Backstreet Boy dancer.

Love, Warren Kramer, Senior Macrobiotic Counselor, Boston, Massachusetts

 

Marsha, I wouldn’t miss being with you and all our friends for anything. It is always a special time. Not many occasions can touch a person so deeply as the times lives are changed here. Thank you for your devotion that helps all of us.

Truly, Monica C, California

 

Marsha,

I see you like a diamond – illuminating and nourishing us and those you come in contact with through your multiple facets. Thank you, thank you, thank you…

Dear Marsha and Fred,

Well, another awesome macro  camp in Dunwoody has come to a close. Is it getting better each time or am I imagining that? I think it gets better each time.

Thank you both for all the tremendous effort it took to make all of this a possibility. Everything flowed so smoothly and people had fun. I’m always just so grateful to be able to return here to tach and share macrobiotic living, it is just the best! The macrobiotic community in Atlanta is getting strong all the time. Your efforts really are responsible for that. Thank You!

All my love, Warren Kramer

*See you in June, Keep body rubbing and dancing till then!!

 

Dear Fred and Marsha,

In a matter of a week you have become what feels to me like a second set of parents.

Your ability to nurture and care for people is inspirational. There is not enough room in this cared to express my love and thanks to the both of you. If there is anything I can do to return the favor please don’t hesitate to ask. All I can say is that I hate to leave and can’t wait to return.

Jeff S, St. Louis

 

Dear Marsha & Fred,

Thank you so much for a wonderful week of great food & relaxation! I am grateful for everything you have done for Jeff. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see him getting better each day.

You and Fred have a wonderful gift, and I am lucky that Jeff has had the opportunity to not only meet you, but stay at your wonderful home. Take care and keep in touch.

Forever grateful, KW, St. Louis

 

Dear Marsha and Fred,

I had to come and understand why Jeff was so committed to this type of food. It am so glad that I did!

I have learned a lot and hope to do the best that I can. We are so very concerned about Jeff. He is very special I feel that with your love and care and this nourishing food he will do much better.

Thank you so much. It has been a real delight a a wonderful experience for me. I already know what Jeff and K. think.

Love and Best Wishes to you both,

Dear Fred and Marsha,

K and I will never forget this weekend. When I thought of the most special people to be a part of the Big Surprise you guys come to mind first. Both of you have touched us very deeply. Rex is an amazing person and gave K the most special afternoon of her life (so far). Thank you so much again and I know this won’t be my last time at your home.

J S, St. Louis

We feel so fortunate to have shared your home and company! When Candie found your website, we knew this would be the perfect choice for a weekend getaway.

The accommodations were wonderful, the food was pure and delicious and it was a joy to meet you both.

Every expectation was met and exceeded. Please accept our gratitude for a marvelous experience.

We’ll be moving to Manhattan this summer, but will be back in Atlanta in the furture. We hope to make the Rueff home our first and only choice.

To peace here and around the world,
