Anahata is a loving community and  gathering place situated on 47 pristine acres along the Little River in Floyd County, Virginia. We are incorporated as a church and education center, and consider ourselves to be a nature sanctuary as well. 

We are a multi-faceted community of friends, couples and families, gardeners, chefs, musicians, artists, healers, educators, counselors/coaches, and spiritual practitioners seeking to live from the heart and co-create a more beautiful world.

Since 1995, we have explored the sacred interrelation of people, nature and the cosmos.  We have striven to create a sustainable and mutually thrivant connection with nature and each other.  We invite you to come explore, learn and share with us as we live from the ‘Anahata’ – a Sanskrit word for the heart center.

VISION STATEMENT:  We are a loving community living from the heart in order to create a more beautiful world.
