Nature Calls The Goddess

2022 Summer Goddess Retreat

Thursday, June 30th – Sunday, July 3, 2022

Immersed in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, “The Summer Goddess Retreat: Nature Calls the Goddess”, guides EXPERIENCES that open us to the wisdom of the elements. ⁣We grow in natural sensuality and awaken our lives through deep embodiment, the senses, symbolism, playfulness, and prayer.  Join a diverse circle of women who share the desire for deep connection with self, nature, and supportive sisterhood.

The Location... Floyd, VA. Soak in the beauty of Anahata’s facility located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains along the Little River, one of the oldest rivers in the world. Enjoy the hot tub and trails. The majority of this retreat happens outside on the River Stage, the Great Lawn, and in the forest “dining room”.  Check out the beautiful facility. Anahata Education Center.

The Workshops… The Summer Goddess Retreat offers 4 workshops, each focused on an element, and also includes yoga classes, bonfire gatherings, and an opening and closing ceremony. Workshops are held by experienced facilitators weaving yoga, dance, meditation, breathwork, partner work, group sharing circles, journal writing, and song. Spaciousness for personal downtime is also integrated into our program.
