where we are


At the Sky of the Heart Preserve we offer individual traditional healing sessions, programs, workshops and shamanic healing retreats. We invite you to come and visit us where we live and work on 40 acres of beautiful riverfront land 20 minutes north of Asheville, North Carolina. 

 Experience our workshops and explore mysteries of the sacred fire in our beautiful council house. There are magical trails to the cliffs and river as well as open fields in which to stretch out and drink in the Appalachian sky. Enjoy peaceful forest glens, pristine springs, striking rock formations and places to swim, wade or simply gaze at the lovely Ivy river. Sit by the fire at night in the tipi or in the garden and listen to the night sounds.

There are various lodging options;  private, 2-3 people sharing, and camping.  Guests may cook their own meals in our fully equipped kitchen. At our summer healing retreat we will enjoy healthy delicious meals prepared by our caterer. While here you can completely unplug from the modern world or, if necessary, stay connected via phone and wireless internet.
