Registration & Information


Rest. Reflect. Renew.

Our in-person and online retreats offer a unique opportunity to put aside daily routines, rest, and listen to your heart. Whether you are grappling with a dilemma or just need a break, our retreats will give you the space to settle and recharge your spirit.



Find fresh perspectives. Uncover your strengths. Meet new challenges.

Coaching is for anyone seeking clarity about their current life path. In conversation together we will explore what you're wanting and how your own strengths and values can contribute to moving forward. You'll find fresh perspectives that will allow you to uncover new or unexpected choices, define productive actions, and set realistic commitments you want to take to move ahead. You set the agenda; coaching will help you stay on track.

30 min​utes: $50 

60 minutes: $75

Set your Agenda. Hear every voice. Move forward with confidence and grace.

Facilitation is helpful ​to groups and organizations who want to step out of their current or habitual pattern​s of communication to  resolve dilemmas, hear and include all voices, generate fresh ideas or review and refine strategic plans.

We'll help you and your group members define how they want to work together and lead the group through structured conversations that result in positive discussion of problems, plans and performance. As your facilitator, we'll balance listening and discussion so that quiet voices are heard and dominant ones are tempered. We'll accomplish more in an hour than an afternoon of unregulated discussion.  And everyone will come away with fresh insights about working together, planning projects and resolving dilemmas. 

Fees: Fees for facilitation are dependent on the size of your group and the length of your engagement with us. We offer a sliding scale for non-profits and small groups (less than 6).

$100 per hour

$250 per 3 hour session

About Us

The Inside Outside Retreat Centre is grounded in values of generosity and reciprocity, and the belief that each one of us is our own best teacher. When we are given a supportive space and time to listen closely to our own hearts and minds, we can find the wisdom we need.

Our simple, gentle guidelines - Welcome, Listen, Wonder - ensure our retreats and programs offer an inviting reflective space to ponder the questions, challenges and opportunities that arise on our path and allow us to listen and respond to others with kindness and compassion.

See for yourself. Join us for one of our retreats or walks and explore how giving yourself a gift of time and space can bring renewal, and support you to move forward on your life path with courage and grace.

The Inside Outside Retreat Centre

So often we know what we want, we even know what we have to do, and yet.... The journey to align actions and beliefs often presents unexpected twists and turns. Don't go it alone.

Retreats offer protected time to nourish your spirit and reflect on your life's path.

Coaching and facilitation can be a catalyst for individuals, groups and organizations to uncover insights into what holds them back,  and lead to the courage, commitment and confidence to move forward. 

We'll hold the space for you or your group to see things clearly, build on your strengths, align your work and your values, and walk your path with grace and determination.

All of our services are available in-person , online or hybrid. Inside and outside.
