Update Regarding Covid-19

For us, as for many of you, these days of physically distancing have given us pause to slow down, to find new ways of connecting, and to listen for the Spirit's wisdom in these uncertain times.

We have reopened slowly and have paid close attention to the directives of our provincial health officer. We do not anticipate operating at full capacity until we enter into Phase 4 of BC's Restart Plan (when we have a vaccine, broad community immunity or successful treatments).

We are committed to adhering to the highest levels of safety for each other and for our wider community. To that end, we have established protocols for physical distancing, hand washing, use of the kitchen and common areas and expectations for cleaning and disinfecting.

If you would like to book a retreat, please email your request and someone will get back to you within a few days.
