Welcome and Green Blessings!
Welcome! I hope this gives you a little peek into the magic that is AKASHA. We are conveniently located about 17 miles northwest of Charlottesville, Virginia. This is “a special place to gather and grow” for friends, families and other groups who want to enjoy an intimate and peaceful retreat with each other in a serenely beautiful location. AKASHA is designed for overnight groups of 10-14 or non-residential groups of up to 25.
I am so pleased to finally be able to offer some open “self-directed” retreat weekends for you. Many of you have asked me about time to just come to Akasha and be still, take walks, journal, read, sleep, meditate and enjoy your connection to nature in this serene environment. I have been doing this for years with my group of spiritual women friends and it has been wonderful for our individual spiritual growth and healing. Read more about the first open weekend this April on the “Events” page.
We have had a number of new guests reserving space as word spreads about this hidden treasure. Every retreat leader who has hosted a program here has commented on the unique energy at Akasha. Participants continue to enjoy the intimacy of the chapel and comfort of the Emerson House. So I recommend getting reservations for your group in place as soon as you can. I like to give everyone their first priority whenever I can.
We appreciate all of you who have made AKASHA your home for annual events. It’s so great to see our friends come back year after year, or sometimes more than once a year. If you have a group that you meet with regularly, come on up and check us out as a very special place to gather with your friends, family or coworkers. The peace and quiet of the fall and winter months are lovely here with the woodstoves and fire circles to warm your soul. Hope to see you soon.
Sending love and light to all, Janet.
