Schedule 2018 Winter Retreat

When and Where?

The Sky of the Heart Winter program will run from Sat January 6th through Sat January 27th. During this time we ask you  to be present for sessions three times per week. Attendance at all sessions is recommended but not required. The program will be held at our retreat center 20 minutes north of downtown Asheville. We are located on 40 acres of exquisite field and forest along the Ivy River.

Most of our work will be done in the tipi or the Council House around the sacred fire. We will also be walking the trails on the land and visiting the river connecting with the beauty and spirit of earth, water and sky.

Time Committments

Aside from the financial commitment your investment includes a willingness to give yourself the luxury of slowing down the pace of your life for awhile so that you can really engage with the different elements of the program. There will be three visits to our center each week: one hour long healing session, one two-hour Wednesday evening fire gathering, and four Saturday workshops. The benefit of concentrated immersion in this work is that there is an increased opportunity to interrupt the incredible momentum and pressure of our lives, to reflect and renew, with guidance and support. This is a gift you can give to yourself which will also bring benefits and blessings into the lives of those around you.



  • Your personal healing sessions will be scheduled by appointment. 
  • Each Wednesday evening features a teaching fire. Experience the benefits of being in a temporary healing village. Share emotions. Listen and reflect for others. Integrate learning. Engage and ask questions.
