Hollyhock is one of the most unique conference settings in North America. Its natural beauty and remote location support the integrated goals of Web of Change. It lies on the sunniest southeastern beach of Cortes Island, BC, at the entrance to enchanting Desolation Sound, between the glaciers of Vancouver Island and the Coast Mountain range, about 100 miles (160 km) north of Vancouver. 



All packages include: Three healthy, organic vegetarian meals daily with weekly wild seafood dinners and beachside oyster barbecues, naturalist guided walks through a spectacular temperate rain forest, relaxing and rejuvenating morning movement or yoga and meditation class, unlimited access to the outdoor hot tub, library and beverage/toast bar with juices, teas and coffee. During your stay, make sure you take a walk along the beachfront or the bio diverse forest trails and breathe in the fresh air and beauty of the restorative garden.


For an additional charge, you can book a bodywork session, rent kayaks, or take part in a scheduled kayaking or sailing adventure.
