Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.

Touch the earth, love the earth, honour the earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your spirit in her solitary places.
~ Henry Beston
This retreat into the serene riverside forest is an opportunity to give yourself sacred time to reconnect with, rejuvenate and renew your intimate relationship with the Earth and with your Spirit through outside Yoga and Meditation, River and Forest Bathing, Silence, Art, Walking, Singing and Rest.

Heather Jolma Fray is a yoga instructor, creator of the Breathing Room in Vancouver, mother of two, amazing musician, and so much more!
“A life long lover of movement, I found yoga over a decade ago in a gym, getting a workout where my husband worked and my son Max resisted being in the child care space. Moving on with my new found interest, I discovered then, Yvonne Edes, now Sundari SitaRam, at The Shanti Yoga Center. It is still unraveling, but yoga, as I have come to know it in my world, is a source of connection to what is good, natural; an easy way back to myself, my heart. It has become a way I have deepened my understanding of the impact my thoughts have on my health and well-being, therefore the health and well-being of my family, community, and planet.”

“TreeSong is a 15 year dream realized. Through visiting TreeSong and delving into its offerings, I hope that folks walk away inspired, with new knowledge, and deeper connection with themselves, others and the natural world. It is my most sincere wish to pass along what I have discovered about nature’s gifts and to support others in developing a life changing relationship with the wilderness both outside and within them.”
