My time spent at The Farm with the One Healing Arts Retreat inspired my inner Artist and helped remind me that my Spirit, my work and my uniquely creative essence is uplifted and supported by a community of like minded people.

Nick Demos has an uncanny way of unleashing ones creative self. Whether through yoga or his well-thought-out exercises, I experienced an artistic reawakening and physical transformation that was nothing short of cathartic.

What really impressed me about the One Healing Arts retreat was the combination of freedom and support. I had the freedom to make my own days and write on my own schedule, but I also got the chance to connect with other writers, to brainstorm and just unwind. All that, combined with the gorgeous natural surroundings, made this a remarkably relaxing and productive retreat.

William Johnson, Playwright

Having time away at the One Healing Arts retreat with no distractions and the unwavering ability to concentrate solely on writing was invaluable. Our project progressed by leaps and bounds—far beyond what I ever would have imagined possible—in just a few short and extremely productive days. Furthermore, those few days energized my writing beyond the scope of that particular project. They actually affected a huge change in my outlook as a writer, effectively “jump-starting” my entire writing process..

Andy Monroe-Composer


The great benefit of the One Healing Arts Retreat is the intimacy of the space, and the ability to keep working day and night on our new project if we chose, keeping the conversation going and being able to spend time with each other and our ideas. We could write, listen to what we’d written, talk about it, go for a walk and think about it, return and revise, hear it again. Cook and eat and keep talking about it. That is my idea of heaven.

Darrah Cloud, Playwright and Lyricist
