  • Beschreibung


    Nestled in the shadows of Mt Benson, on beautiful Westwood Lake, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, our Centre that welcomes groups and individuals who want to explore their own spirituality as well as discover the wisdom and teachings of others.

    Our vision embraces “spirituality without borders” and we maintain the tradition of hospitality that has long been part of the Centre’s strength. We believe that there is a connectedness in humanity in our search for meaning and spirituality, and we collaborate with partners to offer programs that help people evolve in ways that expand our consciousness and connectedness to each other, our communities and our planet.
