We work in partnership with the media to tell memorable stories about Ontario outdoor adventure, transformational leadership, unplugging from technology, nature connection, community development & more

From feature stories in the NY Times and Yoga Journal to independent travel writers and travel bloggers like Angela Dollar’s Canada’s Eco-Haven, we are happy to put together story opportunities that coincide with our scheduled events, or which align with the mission and vision of our Healing & Transformational Leadership Retreat Centre.  We also do audio and video and have been featured on CBC Radio: The Current & CTV News.

We have an extensive library of professional high resolution graphics in our Algonquin Park eco-lodge Flickr Library to help make your story-telling come alive.
