Food is organic and locally produced wherever possible, and will be an important part of your sensory experience.
A massage therapist will be available on some days, bookable in advance.
Inspired by Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way, this retreat will support you to delve deep into your wildest dreams, giving you the clarity to discover what makes your heart sing, and the courage to make it manifest in your life.

CO TEACHER: Samm Short – Riverheart Owner and Fellow Yogini, Artist, Writer and Mentor – Fearless love; Courageous expression. For me, the practices of writing, painting, yoga and meditation all seek to discover and express the same truth – that love and joy are at the root of all things. Ancient and sacred, these offerings are the cornerstones of Riverheart, and it is both my deepest hope and my wildest dream that some of this magic will prove as contagious as I believe it to be.
Tapping into the subconscious, practicing creative permission (yes you can write, you can paint, and you can do it in your own way!) and surrendering to the natural flow of life are themes in all my classes. Whether it’s a Sufi meditation, a yin yoga workshop, or a wild poetry session, we’ll be working together towards greater self-awareness, acceptance and peace.
