Women's Retreat ~ Vancouver Island

  • Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island (map)

Step out of your ordinary life and join us on Vancouver Island for a weekend of healing, connecting and creating.

Our time together will include :
~ Time in nature
~ Fire Ceremony
~ Sacred Circle and Deep Sharing
~ Sisterhood
~ Nourishing Food
~ Spirit Doll Creation
~ Cacao Ceremony
~ Sound Healing

Our time together will begin Friday evening. We will share a potluck together, create sacred space and end our evening with a fire ceremony.

Saturday will begin with a nourishing breakfast and time to spend in nature followed by a Spirit Doll workshop. The process of making a Spirit Doll allows you to communicate with the deepest parts of yourself and connect to your natural creativity, which can be profoundly healing and transformative.

Saturday evening will consist of a beautiful Cacao Ceremony including: a shamanic journey, sound healing and hands on energy medicine. This will be a wonderful time of connection and healing together, in sisterhood.

The location for the retreat is located 20 minutes north of Qualicum Beach on beautiful Vancouver Island.

This property is situated on three acres, with plenty of room to enjoy nature and host our intimate gathering. There is a large outdoor space that features a tranquil landscaped Oasis, with an pond, outdoor sauna and 2-4 person hot tub overlooking the water. There is a dedicated area for an evening gathering together by the fireside.

The kitchen is thoughtfully supplied with breakfast for the group and when available fresh organic ingredients are supplied to prepare a nourishing breakfast for everyone! Light snacks will be provided for the first evening and potluck items may be contributed if desired. The remaining meals of a lunch and dinner will be provided and will be vegetarian based (with seafood option available). Bottled water is also provided. Bring personal snacks if desired.

In addition to the suites and bedrooms, the property has a detached large group kitchen with seating to accommodate the group. This area is in it’s own private building making it perfect for meals or crafting.

The three buildings are all separate, allowing guests in the bedrooms to not be disturbed by noise in the kitchen and activity building. There is also a large gathering area inside one of the main buildings which we will spend time together gathered in circle.
