Amber & Luna

Into the Mystic ~ Awakening Love in the Mystical Lands of Peru
With Amber Acheson and Luna Ray


Join Amber and Luna and the “Awakening Love Sisterhood” in Peru for a Spiritual Immersion!

Peru is one of the world’s most well-known sacred places. The land is indeed full of mysticism and mystery. The spiritual traditions and legends that have grown up around this mysticism are what will add a unique dimension to this Awakening Love retreat. 

Peru retreat

“Awaking Love” is a revolving community of women who value nature, togetherness, support, growth, and belonging. We work together to reclaim our personal power through contemplative practices such as movement, singing, sharing, time in nature, time together, and time with Self. It is our belief that when we reclaim our power, our capacity to do powerful things in the world expands! 

The promise of this retreat will include rest and relaxation, clarity, embodiment, adventure, community, and laughter. Most importantly, this retreat will provide you with an experience you’ll never forget.

The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.

The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest-room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.

Amber Acheson

Yoga found Amber more than a decade ago while she was living in South Korea teaching English to school-aged children. Her first Yoga instructor, Sun, didn’t speak any English so the two women traded English lessons for Yoga lessons. Even though there wasn’t much the two could share with each other verbally because of the language barrier, it felt as though there were lifetimes of emotions and sensations shared as Sun guided Amber deep into her body and back to her soul. As Amber allowed her breath to guide her deep within, she felt her body soften, she felt her mind calm, she felt the world a little kinder and she felt her soul alive once again.

Shortly after adopting a daily Yoga practice, Amber journeyed out to discover Yoga in other parts of Asia including: the Philippines, China (Tibet), Nepal and India where she was trained in traditional Hatha Yoga and completed her 200 hr Yoga Alliance Certification. Amber completed her 500hr level certification in Therapeutic Yoga through Subtle Yoga (Kaoverii Weber) in 2012. She is currently the Director of Teacher Trainings and Immersions at Asheville Community Yoga, a non-profit/donation based Yoga studio that serves more than 17,000 practitioners located in Asheville, North Carolina.

In addition to her role in both Teacher Trainings and Immersions, Amber teaches weekly donation-based classes, one of which she calls “Yoga for Women.” In this class, Amber takes great joy in guiding women in finding connection; connection to breath, connection to body, connection to femininity, connection to Self (wisdom and grace) and connection to community. She is astounded by the growth she has witnessed in this group of women as individuals and as a collective. The experience Amber has had with this women’s class has inspired her to co-create “Awakening Love ~ A Women’s Workshop Series and Retreat” with her dear friend Luna Ray, a nationally recognized singer/songwriter and yoga teacher with deep roots in the path of Bhakti Yoga.

Amber’s passion is service and Karma Yoga. She knows first hand the power Yoga has to transform and it is her life’s mission to serve through Yoga, guiding others through the transformations she has received through committed practice. Her style of teaching ranges from gentle, restorative and meditative to strong, focused, flow sequences.

In addition to being a Yoga Teacher and working at Asheville Community Yoga, Amber takes great joy in serving her beloved partner, Michael, and their three-year-old son, Asher, in the domestic realm. She is beyond grateful for this extraordinary life shared with family and community and the teachings of Yoga that allow her to experience it all more fully!

Below is a quote that inspires Amber’s daily practice:
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi
