Our People

The Haven is a special place: it is 7 acres of picturesque, forested land by the sea on Gabriola Island. It is also much more than a place: The Haven is its people.

You’ll meet some of our welcoming and skilled staff when you contact The Haven or arrive at the campus. These hard working individuals do everything from keeping the Haven running smoothly to making your stay comfortable throughout your visit. 

Behind the scenes, our Board charts the direction of The Haven and oversee its general operation. The Haven’s Members are charged with ensuring The Haven stays true to its mission and values.

Our program leaders hail from many places in North America and beyond, bringing a wide range of training, experience, and passion for teaching Haven programs; program assistants are a key part of the leadership teams.

We are fortunate to have highly skilled bodyworkers who offer a range of healing modalities. Participants tell us they find sessions with our bodyworkers contribute significantly to their Haven learning and experience. Read a testimonial here.

“Our people” includes the many interns and participants who come to The Haven from British Columbia and places diverse as the United States, Denmark, Australia, China, and more. You can listen to what they say about their Haven experience here
