Reiki is a therapy often described as hands-on-healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient’s body (with clothes on) to channel universal life-force energy or prana into the chakras or energy centers of the recipient to facilitate the process of healing and recovery. This combined with singing bowls, drums, rattles and gongs can create a transcendent experience.

60 minutes – $70


Wellness isn’t something achieved in a hour session, it is a lifestyle. Our wellness coaches can help you identify what parts of your lifestyle are working and support you with what you may already know is ready to shift.

“It’s just like heaven!” in Gretchen’s opinion.


A beautiful testimonial for Anahata from an attendee of the Living Juicy Women's Retreat: "Anahata is a magical place. The warm energy of the land and the loving facilitators reminded me of the sweetness of sisterhood, the healing power of Gaia, and the beauty that comes from sacred ceremony...surrendering to the Great Mystery. I am taking away the powerful wisdom and knowledge that I know will support me and my community as we navigate through the waters of eyes have been opened to the fact that sometimes the simplest of mantras, such as "I know" or "I don't know" can hold so much depth and magic. I am grateful for this experience. 07/24/2020

A glowing review from a recent retreatant:
"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." To reserve a room for a personal retreat visit:


Shiitake mushroom / tree clearing opportunity!
Get shiitake logs in exchange for oak, maple or beech wood. If your trees need thinning or if you have living branches or a tree that has fallen recently, we will thin trees and/or clear branches. Must be recently fallen, living trees. You get an inoculated log for every five logs we receive! Guaranteed to produce; I have 10 years growing experience.
