Mountain Waters Retreat Centre is AMAZING!  Nestled into the mountains near Nelson BC, it is an oasis where we drink fresh spring water, we eat from the on site garden and practice surrounded by the forest.  There is a mix of rooms in the main building with shared bathrooms (flush toilets) and small cabins (first come first serve) with composting toilets.  There is a yoga shala in the woods and one on the lower floor of the main building.  Hot tub and outdoor shower are a bonus.

Although everyday is a little different below is a sample day at the retreat:

630am with meditation and movement practice.

Most food is from the stunning garden on site and it is all freshly made.  We are dairy, gluten and processed free.  There is both vegan and vegetarian options but we will have meat every second day for those that prefer it.  All cooking is whole foods and made with love
There is no coffee or alcohol allowed at this retreat to encourage a clean mind body and soul and work through many attachments.

Although there is cell service and Wifi we will ask that you turn off your devices and only check in if necessary for the time of the retreat.  No phones allowed in any of the group spaces (only in your room).  We want to offer all participants an opportunity to listen deeply to their inner guidance and take a break from the constant noise, media and marketing that can disrupt our ability to truly hear our inner wisdom.

  Mostly everything you will need is provided, minus the small list below:

  • Warm wooly socks and sweater for early mornings during meditation
  • Walking shoes – outdoor hikes
  • Water bottle for refilling as desired.
  • Yoga Mat and sweat towel if you need.
  • Journal and pen
  • Exercise clothing
  • Bathing suit or nudity optional
  • A possibility positive attitude

 

Getting to Nelson BC is really easy.  There are major highways that pass right through, about 7hrs from Vancouver and 7hrs from Calgary.

You can also fly into Castlegar and take the shuttle (about 25min) to downtown Nelson and we can arrange a ride up the mountain to the retreat centre as needed.  Taxis will also take you there.

We encourage ride shares as there are usually multiple people coming from the Island or Vancouver.  Just ask and we can put you in touch if needed.

Full directions are available @ www.mountainwatersretreats.ca/

Yes we certainly do.

We offer an easy payment schedule essentially breaking down the cost monthly or bi-weekly (up to you) over the amount of time from when you sign up to the first day of the retreat.

We ask that everyone is paid in full by the opening day
