10+ Meditation Retreats in BC

Looking for a meditation retreat in BC?

BC offers many sublime settings, drawing in popular teachers from around the world, across all styles of meditation.

If you’re ready to dive into a 10 day silent immersion, the infamous Vipassana retreat located in Merrit offers a beautiful setting with a guided experience. This meditation retreat is by donation, which is pretty sweet for those on a budget. Their silent retreats do fill up quickly so you’ll want to plan ahead.

If you’re seeking nature immersion, you have lots of great options in BC. We’d recommend The Sentinel in the BC Kootenay’s, The Hermitage on Denman Island and the Yasodhara Ashram also in the Kootenay Valley.

BC is also home to one of North America’s only places to do a Dark Meditation, The Amaya Center near Cultas Lake, BC. You can learn more about the Amaya Dark Meditation experience in this interview we did here.

For more of a self-directed retreat getaway, Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island is a real gem, as is the Rivendell Retreat Center on Bowen Island, which offers by-donation personal getaways, so you can meditate to your hearts content. They have a communal centre with full amenities as well as nature huts if you want to go totally off the grid.

And of course, BC’s Hollyhock on Cortes Island is one of the most renowned places for spiritual, wellness, yoga and development type retreats. You’ll find many meditation retreats on offer, or you can simply stay there and DIY your retreat. This upcoming digital mindfulness retreat looks great!
