L.R. Heartsong is “a healer who writes.” 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, River is the award-winning author of The Bones and Breath: A Man’s Guide to Eros, the Sacred Masculine, and the Wild Soul, as well as To Kneel and Kiss the Earth: Inspiration from the Soul Artist Journal. His new book is forthcoming in autumn, 2019.
For four and a half years, River penned The Soul Artist Journal, a weekly e-column/blog celebrating “a life for the senses.” Feeling called to write more in-depth about the healing journey, in January 2017 he closed the cover on the SAJ and started TendingSacred: lengthier writing that embraces a somatic connection with nature and mystery, shamanic realms, and transformation for body and soul—a healer’s journey.
Heartsong has been a featured presenter in multiple podcasts, as well as global online symposiums featuring change-making influencers (scientists, shamans, mystics, psychologists, healers, and more). Alongside hosting the Embodied Soul Podcast (ESP), he pens a monthly offering at TendingSacred, and is soon releasing his third book: the companion to his deeply transforming Evolutionary BodySoul 10-week signature program. River works with clients internationally, both through his coaching and private retreats—fusing vibrant health and soul.
