Summer Retreat on BC’s Beautiful Bowen Island


Sequoia and Ziji
for a relaxing, nourishing summer retreat to connect with ourselves, with one another, and with Nature at her most magnificent.

August 21-24

We found a beautiful, luxurious Guest House a 15-minute walk from the Snug Cove ferry landing [see website] where we can accommodate 9 to 12 men. Leave your car at home! Bowen is only 90 minutes from Vancouver by bus and ferry.


We’ll have the Guest House from Friday evening through Monday morning. A breakfast buffet is included Sat/Sun/Mon. For lunches and dinners, we’ll enjoy many dining options in the charming Snug Cove Village. There is also a kitchenette with fridge and microwave, if you wish to bring some of your own food.

You can arrive as early as 3 on Friday. We’ll convene Friday evening after dinner, at 8, to get acquainted sharing TLC.

Saturday and Sunday mornings we’ll share nude yoga, meditation, and sensual touch.

Both afternoons will include optional guided massage in the Lodge OR free time to explore the hiking trails, kayaking, and lazing on the beach.

Saturday and Sunday evenings after dinner we’ll share rituals of Sacred Erotic Touch.

Monday our closing circle will be after breakfast. We’ll depart the Lodge by 11, and can leave luggage there to enjoy another leisurely day exploring Bowen’s delights. Ferries depart every hour.
