The Xenia Retreat Centre
782 Smith Road
Bowen Island, BC V0N 1G2

August 12th - 16th, 2019


Beautiful shared rooms and bathrooms.
(Single occupancy rooms available upon request.)
Fresh linen and clean bedding provided in each room at the beginning of the retreat. 


The retreat is easy to get to, no matter where you're travelling from. Most of our writers are flying into Vancouver Airport and ride sharing from there. Bowen Island is a 20 minute ferry-ride from Vancouver Ferry Terminal. 

"Xenia is a 38-acre Sanctuary in the heart of Bowen Island, one hour from downtown Vancouver and 90 minutes from our international airport. It is also surrounded by hundreds of acres of national forests and lakes. It is a place of beauty. It is a place to heal, to rest, to play and to discover one’s true nature and inherent gifts."

Once you have paid your deposit, we will add you to a Facebook group with your new collaborators and songwriting friends. Many retreaters coordinate carpools and travel plans to split costs.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or if you need assistance.
