"I've been to many different types of retreats: plant medicine, breathwork, yoga, men's weekends, nature outings, big summits etc. And nothing comes close to the profound medicine mother nature reveals on the river. I've received such healing and insights from floating deep within this sacred canyon, completely sober. Stillness is the medicine. In a world where it's hard to find any resemblance of stillness, learning to listen will become a tool that'll radically transform the way you navigate your life. This experience will change you. Because: 'No wo/man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and s/he’s not the same wo/man.' - Heraclitus"

“I haven't seen anything like this before. Merging emotional health + spirituality with a guided river rafting trip. And most river trips don't have the intention of healing. Most healing retreats will go to a big house or retreat center. We are going in nature and on the river. It's everything you need to unplug and reset, without the extreme discomfort of it all. You don't have to plan, cook or paddle. It's a lot of self reflection and going with the flow.”

What people are saying
The connection gained with myself, the earth, and every person on this trip is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. When I say the connection with every person on this trip, that includes the river guides, the production team, and The Hart Collective.

I was able to express myself in ways that I never dreamed of and begin to heal and love the deepest and darkest parts of my being. I was able to connect with and bring old wounds and trauma buried deep in my soul to the light and give them the love that they always needed and have been crying out for my entire life. I am infinitely grateful for this experience and being a part of this community.

The (river rafting) retreat was a profound experience for me. One of the most beautiful moments I had was our silent float portion on the river. What came to me was this realization that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be, right here, right now, at this moment in time. And all of the other guys are too.
