Programs

January 11th 2022 – We regret to announce that, the Haven will be closed until March 31st. The number of infections from the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has continued to increase in BC and Vancouver Island, with infection numbers reaching record levels recently. COVID-19 has been a challenge for all of us and the Haven has also been impacted. We will be working hard to reimagine the Haven and create a wonderful experience for when we reopen in April. Click here to check out our online program offerings.

Browse all the programs we offer and add yourself to a waiting list here to be the first to hear about newly scheduled offerings!

Effective September 1, 2021, we will be offering our Haven in-person core programs to people who are fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks after your second vaccination in a 2-dose vaccination series) at this time.  We have crafted a clear, comprehensive set of guidelines that apply to everyone on the property. Please refer to the Communicable Disease Prevention & Safety Protocols to help keep us all safe on property.

Getting Unstuck: The Alchemy of Humour Waiting List

With Carole Ames

Open Dates
Humour, laughter and play.  These are some of the earliest forms of self-expression seen in children. They are strong indicators of the innate human ability to process, express and connect.  Adults have often forgotten, or never learned, the ease, effectiveness and pleasure of humour.  Additionally, humour is an amazing path to acknowledging and releasing the places in our lives where we get stuck. Alchemy /’al-ki-mi/   Power or process that changes or transforms something in a mysterious or impressive way.

Boundaries: The Vital Edge Waiting List

With Linda Nicholls

Open Dates
Pleasing, Proving, Performing, Perfecting are exhausting for me. For you too? Boundaries – clear, compassionate boundaries – are the key to living in the Present – Passionately, Proactively, and even Playfully! A boundary is not a "thing" – instead, defining a personal boundary is an active process that is more accurately described as "boundary-ing." This is an awkward word to say – and often even more awkward to put into practice effectively! And the rewards are well worth it. Discerning, expressing and dialoguing about personal boundaries strengthens our ability to live more compassionately, to access creativity, energy and aliveness so that we enjoy greater…

Sound, Belonging & Wholeness waiting list

With Leah Hokanson and Lynette Jackson

Open Dates
The year is 2021. Our world, constrained by a pandemic, has become ever more “connected” via the internet. Yet many of us have never felt more lonely and isolated, as if we don’t belong. Quantum Theory teaches us about the unified field, that everything is connected through vibrating, pulsating energy, and yet humanity has never seemed more fragmented and polarized. What is going on? Physicist and philosopher David Bohm, in his book Wholeness and the Implicate Order, writes about “the subtle but crucial role of our general forms of thinking in sustaining fragmentation and in defeating our deepest urges toward…

Process Oriented Conflict Facilitation Waiting List

With David Hatfield

Open Dates
Conflict is natural and, with proper facilitation, can bring us much closer to ourselves and each other. Interpersonal conflict is an inevitable and basic human experience, and is generally a challenging one.  It is found in our relationships, organizations, dreams and bodies.  With effective facilitation conflict can bring insights, resolutions, healing and relationship growth. The results from unaddressed conflict are predictable: decline in trust, distancing in our relationships, increased stress and poor health.  In organizations, conflict effectiveness is crucial to team cohesion, staff retention, innovative practice, motivation and meeting objectives. To move through stuck polarities we need to learn more about how to sit…

Self Compassion Waiting List

With Jo-Ann Kevala and Graemme Brown

Open Dates
The joy and good humour of self-compassion stand in contrast with the harshness of self-hate. This program explores both ends of this polarity. The program will benefit anyone who has tried to be the person they "should" be and, in the process, lost touch with the person within. It offers an expansion and exploration of The Haven's Selves Model that is presented in Come Alive. (But you do not have to have done Come Alive in order to take this program.) This program is for you if you: Recognize self-harming patterns in your health or relationships Have found outward success but inner…

Anger Boundaries and Safety Waiting List

With Greg Gurel

Open Dates
The boundaried, safe and responsible expression of anger can help you stand forward on your own behalf and create the life and relationships you want. Few emotions are more feared than anger, largely because anger is so often confused with violence. A central theme of this program is that anger and violence are different. It is sadly true, of course, that anger is frequently expressed violently – physically, verbally and emotionally. However, this is the unsafe, unboundaried expression of anger, used to harm and control. The good news is that anger is a natural feeling that exists in all of…
