Loonsong aspires to be a destination for people who want to reconnect with self and with other or for anyone  needing respite from the pace and demands of life. Humans have a need to come together in community to honor and celebrate the unfolding of our lives and to share this through our stories. We also need quiet time in nature in order to soften the body through silencing the mind, the many stories that we tell ourselves. Consider coming to Loonsong……alone or with friends………for a day, for a weekend, for a planned program or for one of your own design. Look over the menu of programs offered or ask your body/mind what it needs and listen closely for the answer.


Massage Therapy by registered Massage Therapist, Kathi Ryan, is always available during a stay at Loonsong. Beginning in the spring of 2013 Kathi will be offering treatments in her beautiful treatment room surrounded by trees and immersed in quiet. An infared sauna is available prior to your massage upon request. One can make a day, a weekend or longer out of this experience by coming with friends, enjoying walks in the woods or the Provincial Park only 10 min. walk away, yoga/dance in the studio, enriching conversation, wonderful food and a deep softening of Body, Mind and Spirit. Time away in this natural environment can fully revitalize and inspire a body and soul.

Loonsong is the perfect artist retreat as everything is simple and invites the mind to rest so creativity can give birth. Whether you are a writer, a painter, a dancer, a musician or a photographer you will not be disappointed in the gift that is Loonsong.

Flanked by soft hills that echo the call of the owls and loons, Loonsong’s location is on the Country Harbour River in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. This is a tidal river, forever changing and though Loonsong is not too far to travel one gets the sense of being “away’ and this gift alone is enough to create a deep interior shift.

I look forward to your visit.
