Event Description

"This Event will be devoted to exploring deeply into the Nature of our Existence."

Well Being Retreat Center is offering a 2-night mostly silent Weekend Retreat led by Don Oakley, author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening," a five star rated book on Amazon, and by Patty Bottari, a Director of Well Being Foundation and longtime employee and student of both Adyashanti and Byron Katie.

This event will be held in the open-air Powell River Pavilion on the bank of the scenic Powell River. The weekend event includes lodging in one of our 12 cabins. Each cabin has a kitchenette so that you can store and prepare your meals. We will provide drinks and snacks. The Pavilion allows for seating at at least six feet apart.

About the Retreat

This retreat is a non-denominational opportunity to explore one’s own true nature – free from the everyday distractions and busyness of our lives. The weekend will include silent sittings in the serenity of our riverside Pavilion, guided meditations, inquiry, structured sharing and a guided inquiry talks by Don Oakley.. Closing Sharing Circle will be led by Patty Bottari. All activities during the retreat are voluntary, of course. However, we ask that you remain fully engaged in the spirit of the retreat for the duration of the event and not simply use the time for a personal vacation. 

There is a $125 Fee to register for this event.  This fee covers your lodging, housekeeping, drinks and snacks. You will be responsible for your own meals which can be prepared in the cabins, all of which have kitchenettes.

There will be an opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to Well Being Foundation while at the retreat or afterwards which will allow us to further this work of offering this venue for future retreats for yourself and others to explore our deepest nature. Your generosity is always greatly appreciated.
