“Join our annual Thanksgiving retreat to tend your heart fire as the center of wisdom, soul satisfaction, and most of all the transforming power of love,” writes Shiva Rea. “For many years, we have retreated to the warm springs of Esalen during the Thanksgiving weekend for a ritual deepening and renewal of the heart fire. This popular retreat always changes and yet is constant in the regeneration of the ‘body of love.’”
