Life at the moment is very hectic. It’s very noisy everywhere, that 

we can’t possibly hear

 to the very depth of ourselves what is being asked of us.

Guided Retreats

Scheduled Retreats at the Centre in Halfmoon Bay, BC

Our scheduled guided retreats have more structure and less silent time than Silent Retreats. As well as sharing meals together, there are opportunities to join in group classes and a spiritual talk & discussion, within a quiet environment. We offer a number of guided retreats throughout the year. Whether you are in need of some space to think and reflect or are looking to nurture yourself in a spiritual and peaceful environment, we lovingly welcome you to be our guest.

Relax, recharge & reconnect

During your guided retreat

There will be scheduled times to meditate together as a group, as well as time to meditate when you feel the need. There is also silent time for yourself ~ for contemplation, journaling, reading spiritual books, yoga and/or walks to the ocean and through forest trails.

We highly recommend that you have a meditation practice to receive the most from your retreat. If you feel you would like to learn, Pure Meditative Peace can be taught ahead of the retreat.

Guided retreats are open to newcomers as well as experienced meditators. We offer a number of scheduled retreats throughout the year:

Step into the Silence Retreat ~

An opportunity to bring or learn a meditation technique (if you do not have one) and put it into practice in a supportive, peaceful environment. Participate in a Sevalight Hatha Yoga Class and a group spiritual discussion. For those who want to step in slowly, rather than dive in. A great way to test out the Silence for yourself, before coming on a Silent Retreat.

New Year Gathering ~

A wonderful way to welcome in the New Year in a positive light with time for contemplation, rest and relaxation. Retreat includes two full days, finishing on New Year’s Day. Sharing together in a spiritual way, bringing in the New Year with meditation, Yoga, forest walks, meals together, and a fireside spiritual discussion and reflections on the year past and ahead.

Energy Care & Wellbeing Retreat ~

Make time to nurture your Self and take time out of your busy life to recharge and renew your energy. The spiritual and peaceful weekend at the Centre includes a 2.5 hour introductory class on Energy Care & Wellbeing – providing practical ways and tools for balanced living, a Pure Spiritual Healing treatment, plus silent time to refresh you on every level.

wonderful hosts will guide you

“I have attended 5 Silent Retreats at the Self Realization Center for over 15 years and recommend it all the time to friends. It’s a little sanctuary and my go-to to spend time with myself. It’s beautifully set in the woods with it’s own stream and pond and the mediation room is lovely. The whole center is so well kept and clean and the food is made with love.

Kathseva and Andrew are wonderful hosts and will guide you through the entire retreat experience. With love and gratitude.”
