Summer Retreat

JULY 18, 19, 20, 2008

You were missed at
Lasqueti Island last year

It’s time to mark your calendars and make a commitment to come to another wonderful, fantastic Lasqueti Island Retreat. Noel has added an extra day in 2008, so you are welcome to arrive early on Friday the 18th and just enjoy the pastoral setting of the Teapot House. Each year as we gather we all marvel at how nourished we feel coming together and sharing sessions, stories and great meals. If you plan to come and join with us for a weekend of connecting, please call Noel at
(250) 388-6875 so she knows you are planning to come. One thing that JSD family members often do is leave it to the last minute before committing to making the journey to the retreat; it really is good to know numbers ahead of time. Maybe carpools of people can be organized to save qi.

The retreat cost is $20 per person.

Catch the ferry that leaves from French Creek at 9:45am, 2:30 & 5:30pm on Friday or 9:45am on Saturday morning. Plan to arrive by 9:15am to park your car and buy a walk-on ferry ticket ($14 return trip). Noel will pick us up on the Lasqueti side.
The Sunday ferry leaves at 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm and 6:45 pm so you can spend a full day on Sunday if you wish. The Ferry Terminal is located 3 km north of Parksville on the Old Island Highway.

What to bring: a towel, sleeping bag, and personal clothing and stuff (bathing suits are optional). If you are arriving Friday morning bring food to share for three lunches, two breakfasts and two dinners. If arriving Saturday morning, two lunches, one breaksfast and one dinner. There is lots of room inside the big old house for dorm-style accommodations; if you want privacy bring a tent so you can camp in the orchard.

Sound good? Mark your calendars NOW!! Please plan to join us. If you have more questions contact Noel at (250) 388-6875 or
