Vancouver Island Women’s Gathering


UU Womens retreat weekend Sept 9 – 11

The all-inclusive cost for the weekend:  $370 until registration closes Sept. 5, 2022.

Welcome to the Vancouver Island UU womens’ retreat.  Registration is now open for the 2022 fall gathering on September 9 – 11 from Friday late afternoon to Sunday afternoon.

Held (almost) continuously for the past 25 years at the serene Bethlehem Retreat Centre near Nanaimo,  we will work together to create space for celebration and support for each other.  We will share our gifts and talents to make this a fun, healing and healthy experience.  Activities will include discussion circles, crafts, yoga, quiet time, music, labyrinth walking, a Sunday service, a jewelry & book exchange and nature outside to explore.  We will plan on both inside and outside activities and the weather should be warm, as this is our earliest fall weekend yet!   The food is excellent and each woman has her own room.  There are some rooms for women with mobility challenges.

Contact Lynn Beak at  to register.

The gathering is limited to 20 women this year.  A waiting list will be also set up.

COVID – We will have COVID protocols including a vaccination requirement and the use of masks in indoor spaces.  I will send out further details is there are any changes in provincial guidelines or Bethlehem Centre policies.

Please pass this email on to any of your friends or family who may be interested as well.
