Join Anna Franklin for a weekend Solstice retreat just over an hour’s drive from D.C., near historic Harpers Ferry, WV.

Come reflect on the past year at the Blue Mountain Retreat Center, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains where two rivers and three states come together. 

With nourishing food and warm and welcoming accommodations amidst the backdrop of breathtaking nature, we will mark the Solstice in community. 

Get in some rejuvenation before the holiday rush!

Yoga (both Kundalini, Hatha/Vinyasa, Yin/Restorative), meditation, chanting, some special ceremonies to help you release what you no longer need and set intentions for the present & the future, all included in this special weekend:) Free time for hiking and other outdoor or indoor activities (napping?) included.

All People, All Levels are Welcome



Retreat from the melee of busy life to pause, to tune in, and to care for yourself. Only when we step back from our day to day can we truly start to listen to what our hearts desire & be present to this moment.


Free time will be built into this life-giving weekend, and you can choose to attend (or not) any of the planned sessions. Sessions will include:
  • Yoga
  • Breath work
  • Meditation
  • Hiking/outdoor activities
