  We are located in the beautiful Slocan Valley on an acreage just steps from Airy Creek. Our head office/ retreat centre is located in a unique hand crafted straw bale timber frame house. Our sweat lodge is also located onsite. There are two bed and breakfast rooms available for rent year round- call 250-226-6702 to inquire about an overnight stay with us! To find us: We are located at 4615 Passmore Upper the Slocan Valley.  Follow Highway 6 towards Nakusp/Winlaw from the Junction.  Go past the Slocan Park Co-op and turn left onto Passmore Upper Rd. Cross the silver bridge and continue straight (the road turns to gravel) to the end of the road where you will see a Y intersection. The left turns into a logging road so keep right where you see a “No Through Road” sign and follow down the windy road (there are a few blind corners so use your horn to let oncoming traffic know you’re coming!) the road will come to a straight stretch and about 1.5 km along you will see a large straw bale- timber frame house with a green roof and large reflective numbers on the left.  We are 4.5 km from the highway.  You are here!
