About the Event

Do you feel a calling to dive deeper into your spiritual journey — to remember and reawaken your own self-healing abilities, encourage and assist others on their path to healing, and ignite the alive and intuitive creativity of your body through movement, awareness, and connection?

We cordially invite you to gather with us for ReAwaken: An Embodied Reiki Experience. This retreat will take place from July 13 - July 16, 2023 at Anahata Educational Community and Retreat Center in the heart of tranquil Floyd, VA. You will leave with an Usui/Holy Fire III Reiki Level 1 & 2 certification to practice this ancient Japanese healing modality on yourself and others, trauma-informed somatic and embodiment practices, an in-depth exploration of finding balance, knowledge on how to tap into your own psychic and intuitive abilities, and a deeper connection to all that is.

We believe that in order to truly begin to flourish, we must integrate the mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, we have carefully curated a Reiki training and retreat experience that encompasses transformational activities that are designed to help you connect with yourself and others on a physical, somatic, spiritual, and energetic level.

Meet Your Facilitators


Ari’s background in psychology and clinical mental health counseling education, Core Energetics, yoga, Holy Fire/Usui III Karuna Reiki, breathwork, energy work, and meditation training provides for an integrative approach to holistic healing. She ultimately wishes to explore the world of somatic therapy, shadow work, psychedelic research, and plant medicine facilitation in treating substance use, depression, anxiety, and PTSD/general trauma. She believes that by forming a relationship with the body and utilizing movement to express emotion and memories that have lodged themselves inside the body, one can return to a state of embodied liberation, begin to remember how to access pleasure, awaken to their own psychic and intuitive gifts, and reignite their own inner flame. Her goal is to combine yoga, somatic/body psychotherapy, intuitive mediumship, breathwork, Tantric Ayurveda, Shamanic practices, transpersonal psychology, psychedelic psychotherapy, Reiki, and mindfulness-based techniques to cultivate a holistic approach to therapeutic healing on the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental levels of being. 

From a very young age, Ari has had a strong ambition in assisting others in recognizing and owning their own power to self-heal. Her vision is to help awaken you to the abundant resources that are already available to you within yourself, as well as around you. She is honored to accompany you on your journey while you manifest your own healing and strength, and channel peace and relaxation more fully.

Without recognizing, embodying, and loving our shadow, we cannot embrace the light, as light cannot exist without its contrast. Ari believes that we have the power to embody our unique blueprint by shedding light on the patterns of the subconscious mind to work towards a state of wholeness.


Emme facilitates healing through the modalities of energy medicine, spirit communication, sound frequencies, and divination, using her intuition to guide her as she holds sacred space for deep soul remembrances and divine transformation. As a Holy Fire III Reiki Master Teacher, Sound Healer, Spiritual Medium, and Meditation Guide, she is passionate about mysticism and metaphysics, applying it to the journeying, healing, and integration processes of this human experience.

Her journey into the path of healing was inspired by her intention to heal herself. It was through the honing in on her intuitive abilities and remembering the divine essence and innate wisdom within her through this healing process, that she cracked open her consciousness and drastically changed how she shows up for herself, others, and the world around her. 

Emme feels so honored, blessed, and aligned in holding safe and sacred space, while guiding and empowering others to explore their spiritual path as they discover their fullest potential and confidently step into their power.

To act as a mirror, witnessing others heal as they awaken, remember, and embody their highest and most authentic selves not only brings Emme great bliss but also deep fulfillment and spiritual growth. 


Kelly Little was compelled to listen to her body through Yoga shortly after finding out she had Multiple Sclerosis & Fibromyalgia in 2000. The healing and nourishment that Yoga & meditation continues to bring to her mind, body, and soul is what nudged her to transition from University Professor to sharing the beautiful gift to others as a Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master Teacher.  Kelly's experience as a National Board Certified Teacher and educator to humans of all ages and abilities is what guides her in curating creative, trauma-informed, and well-balanced experiences. Whether working with you on a mat or chair, Kelly encourages you listen to your body, realize your fullest potential, and explore the connections to the self and beyond through movement, breath, & stillness... enhancing with a little touch of magic

Kelly completed her 200-hour certification at Beloved Yoga under Maryam Ovissi and Sharra Cielo and finished her 500-hr certification through My Vinyasa Practice with Michelle Young.  When she is not on her Yoga mat or shifting energies through quantum healing practices, you will most likely find Kelly outside gardening with her husband, cooking with her 3 children, or enjoying the beauty of nature with her rescue beagles, chickens, and honeybees!


Ashley is a 200-hour certified yoga teacher, Holy Fire II Reiki practitioner, and photographer based in the White Mountains. With a deep passion for mindfulness, spiritual growth, and visual storytelling, Ashley hopes to inspire and empower you to overcome your limitations and co-create a more beautiful world. 

Ashley loves to integrate breath work, meditation, and movement to create a holistic experience that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit. Within her classes, she hopes you will discover the power of healing and the potential for growth within yourself. As a Reiki practitioner, she also offers gentle touch and energy healing sessions to promote relaxation and inner peace, always encouraging you to live your most fulfilling life. 

Through her photography, Ashley captures the beauty and essence of her subjects in a candid and creative way. Whether you're looking to deepen your yoga practice, receive energy healing, or capture the magic of a special moment, Ashley is here to support you on your journey.
