Retreats & Getaways at Anahata Education Center
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! We have decided to put most of our solo customized retreats on hold while we redesign the program. Instead, we are offering many lovely group retreats this year . . .
CHRYSALIS: OUR ALL-INCLUSIVE SOLO & SMALL-GROUP TRANSFORMATIONAL RETREATS As of July 2022, our private/solo/and very small group retreats are on hiatus. We are regrouping and will unveil our newly redesigned retreat programs in the near future.
SPECIAL EVENT GROUP RETREATS: We are offering several unique group retreats this year . . . These events typically offer daily yoga as well as a rich array of multi-faceted day and evening programs in a larger group (generally 10-25 participants). If you plan early, we can often set up a massage or other spa/wellness session before, during or after your group retreat. Here’s what’s happening this year:
Mindfulness Yoga Retreat ~ with Nina Be June 1 – 13 (3-12 day timeframes available)
Sacred Gathering of Men June 24 – 26
Summer Goddess Retreat June 30 – July 3
Sacred Beauty/Sacred Geometry Nature Retreat August 24 – 28 (3 – 6 day timeframe available)
Spirits of the Land ~ with Damaris Chrystal Sept 24-25
Fall Goddess Retreat November 3 – 6
We are still hosting some solo or couple self-guided retreats and stays in our spaces. These customized retreats are perfect for a solo meditative sojourn, or a deep journey in writing/art/inner-personal work. One night to several nights, or possibly weeks-long stays are available in Sunrise Apartment, Bliss Cabin or our glamping pavilion.
See details of these listings at our Airbnb link below, but contact Kathryn Ashera Rose to customize your getaway and open up the calendar for you! There is a possibility we can also arrange for some spa/wellness sessions, private yoga sessions and a daily hearty meal as well.

Get to Know Our Retreat Venue . . .
Feeling called to go deeper? Anahata is a lovely, calm site to have a restorative healing journey or transformational adventure.
Immerse yourself in the healing and serenity of nature. Our 47 acre nature sanctuary feature a sublime riverfront area with kayaking and swimming, abundant wildlife, an outdoor dance/yoga pavilion, the elevating pine ridge, walking trails, as well as a lovingly cultivated permaculture landscape, gardens and orchards. The Rose yurt offers a sound chamber with skylight – beautifully painted with a flower of life/heart chakra mandala. Our timberframe sanctuary offers indoor and outdoor group spaces, decks and hot tub. Our community is dedicated to living in harmony with spirit, nature, and each other.
We offer individualized retreats tailored to your interests and needs. Couples can take time out together or be guided through a series of exercises for greater communication, harmony and intimacy. Silent retreats can be an opportunity to deepen ones practice, attune to nature, and recharge.
We are non-denominational, inclusive, interfaith and welcoming of diversity. We love to host writers and artists. Couples, friends and small groups are welcome. We also host larger group retreats, one day retreats, and you can drop in for a part or full day wellness experience. We have several specialized larger group retreats per year, so check out our upcoming events page and calendar here.
Retreats can take place in rustic Bliss Cabin, Sunrise – a cozy yet luxurious studio apartment with kitchenette and full bathroom, individual guest rooms in a spacious apartment in our main retreat house, bedrooms or full house rental of an elegant rustic octagonal ‘treehouse’, or a camping pavilion on the riverfront, and more! Preview our guest venues here, but be sure to book retreats (and stays) directly through us for the best rates!

I feel so peaceful and reinvigorated from my stay at Anahata. I really cannot thank you enough for the welcoming experience you and the community at Anahata provided to me. You all showered me with love, and it revived me at a time when I felt completely spent. On a spiritual level I reconnected with my angels and still feel bathed in light. It was exactly what I needed, and more than I ever dared hope for. Now even a week later I am still processing what a magical and nurturing experience it was. 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.
