Retreat Center Accommodations

The Retreat Center's meeting room is a large, vaulted, air-conditioned space with views across the Powell River valley. Meals are served from our licensed commercial kitchen and dining room in the same building. Our other meeting space, the Powell River Pavilion, is a covered event facility located directly on the bank of the Powell River. More info here.

A Perfect Setting for Your Next Retreat


Well Being Retreat Center is steeped in Nature with distant mountain views and quiet river walks, has eleven comfortable cabins that can sleep up to 28 guests, an environmentally-controlled meeting room, a licensed commercial kitchen which provides fresh, mostly organic, often on-farm, meals either vegetarian or non-vegetarian or both. The meeting room has plenty of cushions, Yoga mats, blankets, backjacks, pillows, and comfortable chairs. More information on Facilities Rental for retreats here.

Wellness & Good Food immersed in Nature

Everything at Well Being Retreat Center supports health and wellness: wellness of body, wellness of mind, and, of course, wellness of spirit. The land is quiet enough that you can hear a deer rustling from across the river, or an owl calling from a mile away, or hear the breeze in the trees. The earth-sheltered cabins are low EMF and the beds are very comfortable. Meals are fresh, flavorful, gluten-free and healthy. More information of Retreat Meals here

Well Being's (Mostly) Silent Weekend Retreats


Well Being Retreat Center offers a Weekend Meditation Retreat almost every month. The Retreat is free, except that we ask that you bring and prepare one meal for those attending (usually 8 - 16 people). These weekend include silent sittings, guided meditations, structured sharings, a guided inquiry by Don Oakley and plenty of time for a walk along the river, to catch up on some sleep, or to get around to that book you've been waiting to read. Please go here to see the dates of upcoming retreats
