Lindsay Erickson | Awakened Wellness Retreat

Lindsay is a jewel of a person. Her joy and happiness for life radiates! Lindsay and I met at the Shenandoah Valley bike festival (Shenandoah Valley Bike Coalition) a couple years ago. (Side note: The festival is a really fantastic opportunity if you love to bike + the outdoors! It’s happening this weekend October 11-13 at the Stokesville Campground in Mt. Solon, VA! Check out Shenandoah Valley Bike Coalition’s website to book a camping spot and ticket for the festival!

Lindsay owns a company called Awakened Wellness, where she leads people in the community to a place of inner peace and holistic healing through Energy balancing (also known as Reiki), training others in Reiki, Yoga, and Retreats where she guides others to the heart of true health through wholeness.

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph Lindsay’s most recent retreat taking place at a sustainable farm in Mt Sidney called 1Tribefarm. I drove up the 1/2 mile long drive to the Summit House, admiring the rolling hills and grazing horses. As the sun popped over the mountain, I saw the ladies gathering in the great room to center themselves and come together through Yoga + meditation. I was grateful to meet all these wonderful ladies and join them for breakfast afterwards. (Holy smokes, the food was out of this world! Poached eggs, GF pumpkin spiced donuts, avocado mash topped with fresh chives!) I love the opportunity to witness the joining of new friendships. I was grateful to be a part of their retreat! Enjoy a few favorites of our time together!
