Your financial Gift will build a Healing - Hearts Retreat/Studio Space in the South Mountains of North Carolina, where we will also have Open Studio days allowing any Community Organization, Business, School Group or Individual - come together to create works of art to share with others in need.

Retreat Guests will be able to sit & listen to the whirl and hum of Mountain water; while sitting on their own little private porch,  on their own section of the "LITTLE RIVER," off of their own "TINY CABIN" on a designated 5 acre track of wooded land & wildlife.  

Through out the Healing Hearts Retreat - there WILL BE many more places to sit by the river to relax, write, draw & nap to delight. 

 There are several garden areas for Praying and Meditation.  

No matter what or whom your higher power, you find a beautiful calming place for yourself.  We have the Happy Buddha … 

The Zen Station - along with plenty of other private areas to come...

There is a get away space for you to listen to the healing & calming of your heart between - our soulful heart enriching activities.

In the warm summer months,  we have a beach where you can swim, tube or let the minnows help you with a peddy.  

A mind altering Labyrinth will open all possibilities in this area - by beginning in the east and following the carnal directions. 
The area to the left side of the road will be our sports/activity & recreation area - with basket ball, volley ball, kick ball...

To the right side of the road - we will build the "TINY CABINS" along the "LITTLE RIVER," just past the beach area

Just over the bridge, to the left, is where the STUDIO/Class-Room/Bath House with a Screened Porch will be built. 

On the end side of the studio - It will house an indoor in recreational room - with a library, along with a community kitchen area to cook and a picnic area to snack/eat while listening to nature sing.  There will be a special section/platform to stargaze and sit around a bonfire where stories will be told, healing and memories will be made & instruments will be played.... 

As our guests depart - they will be able to visit our store and purchase a memento of their healing process and memory of such a great Healing Hearts Experience.  We also have trailer and we will travel to provide workshops for your community...
