Welcome to The Haven… 

We’re excited to welcome you back on property for in person programs, while still offering on line programs to meet the needs of your busy life.  The Haven is a non profit transformative learning campus located on Gabriola Island, BC.

What sets us apart from other centres and retreats is an innovative curriculum created by our co-founders, Dr. Bennet Wong and Dr. Jock McKeen. For over 35 years, thousands of participants have chosen Come Alive and Living Alive for personal and professional development. Whether we’re meeting face-to-face or in the online space, we offer deep healing, transformation, connection, and growth in community. 

We hope you’ll check back regularly to see what exciting programs are in store for you!
