The Center for Creative Intent, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was founded in 2001. We offer public ceremony, spirit-based wilderness retreats, hermitage and artist-in-wilderness programs, earth-based ministerial training and spiritual counseling.
Our Warrior Heart Ranch, outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, holds space and education for community leaders and artists to retreat, learn, and grow their capacity both for weathering the oncoming storms and leading their communities through the transitions and contradictions we all face.
We honor the cycles and seasons, with emphasis on stillness, intuition, direct revelation and the power of darkness, incubation, and connecting to the Mystery. We are founded in the teachings of The Four Agreements and honor all spiritual traditions.
WARRIOR HEART RANCH
Our 180-acre retreat center outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We offer wilderness retreats, leadership training, and are currently regenerating soil and forest after the 2022 wildfire. For 2023 our focus is on raising funds for seeds and trees.
Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes. ~ Rumi. An advanced training for current students of HeatherAsh. By application only.
Reconnecting to our Wild Spirit
Warrior Heart Ranch is a community-created sacred space for healing, spiritual connection, and weaving ourselves back into relationship with the land, waters, wind, animals, birds, and ancestors.
Starting in 2020, dozens of volunteers over two years helped build our adobe kitchen, literally brick by brick. After tearing down the old adobe walls of a previous structure, together we created 400 adobe bricks. Each brick was blessed with a word carved into the wet mud. We were blessed that this structure, and a small area of forest around it, was saved by firefighters during the largest wildfire in New Mexico history in Spring 2022. Unfortunately much of our forest was destroyed by the fire.
Thanks to a huge outpouring of donations and love we continue to steward the land and follow the original vision of creating an off-grid wilderness retreat and hermitage. We now are also working with ecologists, artists, indigenous women, and soil experts to regenerate the soil, build berms for erosion control, and plant seeds and trees.
This year we erected our 30-foot teaching yurt (which we managed to evacuate before the fire), and have created a 3-year plan for moving forward with building and restoration.

“Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice. While you do not always have control over how or when the changes will occur in your life, you can choose how you are in relation to those changes. When you step towards rather than ignore, fight, or resist change, you reclaim your personal freedom. You step onto a path of transformation, and move from being a victim of change to being a co-creator with change.”
