L.R. Heartsong is a healer who writes. For more than two decades he has deeply studied and practiced bodywork and the healing arts, both as a therapist and an instructor; he is also a holistic aromatherapist, an Ayurvedic educator, trained in somatic psychology, and a certified Watsu practitioner. As a guide for nature-based soul work, he teaches an embodied, sensual connection with life, Earth, and the soul of the world.

The Bones and BreathA dynamic speaker and teacher, he is the author of The Bones and Breath: A Man’s Guide to Eros, the Sacred Masculine, and the Wild Soul (White Cloud Press, 2014).

He was a featured presenter at the Heartbeat of Mother Earth Summit, 6 – 20 February 2017, a global online symposium featuring 36 experts (scientists, shamans, mystics, psychologists, and more) offering their wisdom, research, and personal guidance, all stitching us to a deeper connection with self and Nature. {Find the video interview here.}

River is also a French-trained cook (formerly a private chef for the rich and famous), a backyard beekeeper, and a novice weaver who uses a Navajo loom and hand-dyed yarns from an heirloom sheep breed. West Coast native turned nomad, he has resided in France, England, and Spain, and though still looking for home, he can often be found near Big Sur, California, either wandering in nature or relishing the beauty of what he has gathered in the kitchen.

As of January 2017, after four and a half years of weekly posts, River has closed the cover on the Soul Artist Journal. Discover his new column and website: TendingSacred

Currently River is circulating his next book to agents/publishers, a soulful memoir about living in the English countryside with his longterm partner; a story that celebrates love, nature, healing, and good food, along with a bit of Old World magic.
