About Texada Island
Texada Island, near Powell River, is a Gulf Island on the coast of B.C, 5 hours by car or one short flight north of Vancouver. The village of Van Anda on the north end of Texada was the first port in B.C. and was a key stop on the way to the Gold Rush territories in the late 1800’s.
The 100 year old home studio/retreat is located in this quiet village, home to approximately 100 people. Shared accommodations are simple, there is a wood stove for heat and a large country kitchen where we take turns preparing meals together. I have a lovely Australian Kelpie Dog. A grocery store is one block away, and a farmer’s market on Sundays in the summer.
Each day is laid out to feel un-rushed but full. The ocean is one block down the hill and trails that lead through the woods to a serene lake are an easy one mile hike away.

Getting to Texada Island
Driving: From Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, the 7:20am ferry will allow good connections to the Earl’s cove ferry, and then the Powell River ferry to Texada. 3 ferries in all, @ $130 return with a B.C. Ferries “Experience Card” discount. You’ll want to arrive the day before the training start date and settle in.
Flying: Pacific Coastal Air from Vancouver South Terminal to Powell River:http://www.pacificcoastal.com/powell-river/ is your best bet. A short taxi ride to the Texada ferry, and I’ll pick you up at the ferry terminal. KD air does fly direct to Texada, but they only fly in good weather, are more expensive, and often cancel flights.
Bus: The Sunshine Coast Connector: http://sunshinecoastconnector.ca/index.php?route=common/home runs daily, and is the cheapest option but takes most of the day to arrive at the Powell River ferry terminal.
Ride shares can often be arranged with other students – I send out a group email a couple of weeks before the training start date so you can arrange things with your classmates.
Please arrive anytime the day before the training begins, as we start at 8am on the first day. The last day of training ends at @noon to allow for travel.
