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 turned renegade, River 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), as well as To Kneel and Kiss the Earth: Inspiration from the Soul Artist Journal. His third book, A Life for the Senses, is forthcoming in February, 2020.
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 began TendingSacred: lengthier writing that embraces a somatic connection with nature and mystery, shamanic realms, and transformation for body and soul—a healer’s journey. In January 2020, he launched 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.
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). He hosts the Embodied Soul Podcast, and is soon releasing the companion book to his deeply transforming Evolutionary BodySoul 10-week signature program. River works with clients internationally through his coaching and private retreats—fusing vibrant health and soul.
