Women and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities, who are in or seeking recovery from a myriad of life experiences, are warmly welcomed at all SHE RECOVERS retreats, events, and offerings.


Is a She Recovers Farm Retreat right for me?

If you answer “yes” to the following questions, then these retreats are perfect for you:

  • Could you use a time out to reconnect, re-fill, and rekindle your own sense of inner peace?
  • Are you searching to step into a fuller, more connected, brighter version of yourself?
  • Are you a strong and courageous woman in recovery (we are all recovering from something) looking to deepen your connection with nature?
  • Are you looking to relieve stress, access your heart, refine your listening and care deeply for yourself?

Stowel Lake Farm is an organic farm and retreat center on beautiful Salt Spring Island, just half an hour by ferry from Victoria, British Columbia.

Outside of twice-daily trauma-informed yoga and coach-led sharing circles, you are invited to spend healing time reading, journaling, resting, or enjoying the large perennial gardens and water features, perfect for reflection and inspiration. If you want to be a bit more active, take a guided farm tour, or head off farm to hike in nature or swim in a nearby lake; explore the nearby market and many quaint shops and cafes that call this island wonderland home.
