Looking for a good retreat for your family, your company conference, your honeymoon or just a few days away for yourself? This resort located on Quadra Island in the Canadian West Coast accommodates all of these groups. Here’s what they advertise: “where wild west coast beauty meets natural elegance”. You can certainly see that in the website pictures, some of which I have posted here. You can see why people say, “Why didn’t we come here sooner?”
The accommodations are hotel rooms with an downstairs lounge and dining room, several guest houses which hold 8 people and their new honeymoon suite. There is a boat moorage, a spa and complimentary WiFi.
What can you do besides relax and read a book, take a walk? Lots of water activities are available such as kayaking, whale watching, canoeing and even golf on the island. There are special events as well. Unfortunately, the website doesn’t let you know much about the owners and staff, but I did meet one of the staff personally – a very nice and enthusiastic young woman. Certainly a phone call could tell you more about the staff, the prices and how to get there. I personally recommend going there by float plane. There are regular flights to Quadra Island and also nearby Campbell River. It’s an experience you won’t forget, and there are endless runways for float planes! More expensive, you say? If you add up the gas and two ferry fees it might be about the same. Flying is certainly faster.
In closing, I’m going to quote from the website: http://gowllandharbour.com
Ideally situated on the waterfront and perched at the water’s edge of the harbour, this one-bedroom luxury suite is perfect for honeymooners, second honeymooners or for anyone wanting a magnificent escape. Highlights of this romantic hideaway include a thoughtfully equipped gourmet kitchen, living room, dining room, lovely ensuite bathroom with glass walk-in shower and Jacuzzi soaker tub. There’s also an uncompromising water view.
This week we lost a great man who showed physical proof of the power of thoughts, words and music through his crystallization of water to form the most amazing patterns. His last word he spoke was, “arigato”, Japanese for “thank you”. Without further introduction, here is the video of his unique work. If you wish […]
Spiritual awakening has become something of a catch-phrase these days. Everyone is looking for that experience – the new age high, the ascension to a higher realm. It was with a bit of amusement that when doing a Google search for current articles on the topic that I found one on the first page of Google […]
Near death experiences are actually a new phenomena brought on by the advent of modern medicine. Before people just died; they were not brought back from death’s doorstep by modern machines. Now we have several decades of reports of what people have experienced when they were between life and death, and the accounts are amazingly […]
We have all heard the term, “charisma” but did you know that the original meaning coming from Greek meant spiritual gifts from God, not a compelling charm and attraction as it means today? According to the Biblical stories, especially from Paul, there are various gifts that we all could be granted in order to help […]
On July 18, 2014 three crop circles appeared in Holland all 3 meters apart, one in corn and two in wheat fields. By plotting the three on a map they have been found to form an equilateral triangle with perfect angles. What is more amazing about this report is that one Dutch man, Robbert van den Broeke, predicted […]

Some of you may have heard of Norma Cowie, a well-known psychic and healer with many years experience. Recently she wrote about a healing she did that involved the “shadow self”. She explains that the function of the shadow self is to keep our connection to “Source/God energy strong at all times”. Unfortunately, many of […]

The owner and manager, Bodhi Heart, has now added and renovated Spirit Skies and is offering a opening discount of 30% on all week retreats in July and August and 20% off for retreats in […]
I usually don’t feature places in common tourist locations, but please check out this retreat center called Sky Island Ranch Guest Retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii near the town of Captain Cook (yes, there is a place called that). They promise you swimming with the dolphins and their place is absolutely amazing. Looks […]
