We welcome visitors, guests and residents to grow and thrive alongside one another in love.
Anahata is a intentional community and gathering place situated on 47 pristine acres along the Little River in Floyd County, Virginia.
Since 1995, we have explored the sacred interrelation of people, nature and the cosmos. Our aim is to create a sustainable and mutually thriving connection with nature and each other. We invite you to come explore, learn and share with us as we live from the Anahata Chakra – a Sanskrit word for heart center.

“From a retreat perspective, it not only offered the solace of meditation and yoga and healthful, nourishing foods, but also the immense comfort of a loving community. It was unlike any retreat experience I could have had elsewhere. It’s rare to find the opportunity for self-reflection and solitude alongside the enveloping warmth of such a special community. It healed me in so many ways and on so many levels.”
~ Marie, from North Carolina
