L.R. Heartsong

L.R. Heartsong is a healer who writes and cooks. For more than twenty-five years, in a variety of modalities—integrative bodywork, somatic psychotherapy and trauma resolution, healing cuisine, soul-based coaching, shamanic work, energy & plant medicine—as well as men’s groups, workshops, and sacred ceremonies, he has helped others discover their authentic path of heart, wild soul, and deepest transformation. He teaches an embodied, healing connection with life, nature, and the Soul of the World.

A dynamic speaker and teacher, a Paris-trained chef gone renegade, he is the award–winning author of The Bones and Breath: A Man’s Guide to Eros, the Sacred Masculine, and the Wild Soul (2018 Nautilus winner, Personal Growth and Self-Help), and To Kneel and Kiss the Earth: Inspiration from the Soul Artist Journal. Heartsong has been a featured presenter in multiple podcasts and global online symposiums featuring change-making influencers (scientists, shamans, mystics, psychologists, healers, and more), all stitching us to a deeper connection with self, healing, and the ‘more-than-human’ world. 


In January 2017, after four and a half years of weekly offerings (more than two hundred and twenty five posts), River closed the cover on the Soul Artist Journal, and started TendingSacredmonthly reflections on a healer’s path.

In 2019, River launched the EvolutionaryBodySoul 10-week signature program. The culmination of two and a half decades as a healer, and sharing the very tools he used to regenerate from a health crisis in 2016, this utterly unique synthesis focuses upon healthy cuisine and detoxification, the human biofield, cellular transformation, and deep soul work to support getting ‘clear’—to fully embody one’s soul purpose in the world. He works with clients internationally. 

In January 2020, he unveiled his new site, Sage, Salt & Fire, exploring the Art of Nourishing Body and Soul, including an online course focused on building a beautiful, healing relationship with food.

His third book, A Life for the Senses: Return to the Soul Artist Journal, is forthcoming in early spring, 2020.
