The Silent Retreat for 3 days and 2 nights was the best choice to log off from the busy, hectic reality and have some quiet time for yourself.The center is located in a peaceful serene nature, close to the ocean, lake and great trails.Keth and Andrew, the hosts are top-notch hosts and are responsive to any need.The homemade, organic meal was really delicious and unforgettable.I was able to have a peaceful time. Thank you. :)

I stayed at the SevaLight Centre in Halfmoon Bay in late July for 5 nights. I was very exhausted when I arrived feeling quite unsettled. My goal was to rest and deepen my mediation practice. I was able to accomplish both under the loving care of the facility management. I enjoyed delicious homemade meals, walks in the woods, swimming in the near by lake and increasing my daily meditation practice significantly. I also participated in a silent retreat for the last part of my stay. I would recommend this facility for both individual and group bookings. Come alone or bring your bubble and enjoy a break from stress and daily demands!

Wonderful, gentle, quiet unplugged retreat with the best food ever. Stayed an extra day, just because sitting by the fireplace, petting a cat, reading and then stretching my legs for a walk through their sanctuary or walk to the beach was a much needed reprieve from the constant buzz of the real world. I can’t recommend the place enough. The couple who run it were quiet, funny, inspiring, generous and SO NOT new age! The grounds were beautiful and the accommodations immaculate and welcoming.

I spent five nights at the SevaLight Centre, the first two days in a personal silent retreat, then two days in a formal silent retreat with other retreatants and with Andrew & Kathseva who run the Centre, then a day to "emerge" and pack up to leave. It was a really, deeply wonderful experience and I hope to return for another retreat someday. The grounds of the Centre are lovely and I went on many meditative walks in the wooded area behind the yard. The forest has several benches, small streams, and many beautiful trees. The highway is close enough that it's seldom entirely silent, but the noise is more of a background occurrence than anything disruptive. It's a safe and private place to walk or spend time in nature. The main house is a lovely sanctuary, with a wonderful cozy sitting room where a fire was usually going (with Bella, the resident cat, usually lounging in front of it!). The dining room is light and airy, and the meals were nourishing and tasty. The meditation room is a beautiful space, and I joined in the Pure Meditation practice every morning and evening. Potential guests should be aware that the Centre is part of a religious organization -- there is no proselytizing or pressure of any kind, but the publications, imagery, and religious practices of the SevaLight organization are present at the Centre. The room I slept in (the "Sage" room) was private and cozy and perfect for my silent retreat practice. The room was very clean and had everything I needed (extra blanket, towels, kettle and teacup, water jug and glass, even a hot water bottle!) and I was able to control the thermostat and keep the room at the temperature I wanted. It was very quiet at night, aside from the occasional noises made by other guests in the cabin. The shared bathroom had to be accessed by going outside, but that wasn't overly onerous. The guest cabins are accessed by stairs, and the dining room is upstairs in the main house, so guests with accessibility needs should take this into account. I got to the Centre by public transit from downtown Vancouver, and it was inexpensive and easy and relaxing to travel that way. It takes 3-4 hours. If you intend to get to the Centre that way, I recommend you liaise with the Centre ahead of time and get detailed instructions on which bus stop to get off and how to get to the Centre via footpaths (I took the last stop instead, and then walked along the highway to get to the Centre -- which was fine, but it's much nicer and a bit faster to use the footpaths!). Overall it was a truly wonderful retreat experience, I would definitely recommend SevaLight Centre whether for a retreat or just a relaxing break in a beautiful location, and I would love to go back someday.

I was excited and nervous to stay at SevaLight. I usually do extensive research prior to booking accommodations, but after having some back and forth with the centre, I followed my instincts and booked for a weekend getaway for my husband and I. And I’m sure glad that I did! Kathseva and Andrew are incredible hosts and I would recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for an authentic way to reconnect to themselves. The cabins are clean and comfortable and the property is serene and relaxing. Laying out in the garden for meditation before and after meals listening to the birds was an incredible experience. There really is some magic here! The food was also absolutely outstanding. They not only easily accommodated a plant-based diet, but it was some of the best food I’ve ever had. The meals were thoughtful and creative and being given the space to eat in silence allows for a person to truly enjoy each and every flavor. Kathseva and Andrew are natural healers and this is felt in every aspect of staying at their property whether through a healing session or a yoga class or sitting down for a quiet meal, I was so grateful to have left much better off than when I arrived. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to get away from it all and have some time to go inward without the busyness and distraction of every day life.

This Christmas I spent 3 days at the Self Realisation Meditation Healing Centre and I have to say this was one of the most beautiful experiences. The food was delicious, the owners were absolutely wonderful and accommodating and the 3 days were bliss. This special place makes a great place to unwind, connect with yourself again and recharge to face the day to day challenges of life. I would totally recommend this place if you need to get away.

I volunteered at the centre for two months. During this time I participated on a meditation retreat and served at the Christmas and New Year retreats. The centre is a very peaceful place and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a break from their daily lives and wants to recharge their batteries. As a guest I was taken care of with love and as a volunteer I felt like a member of the family. I am back in Europe now but I hope I will have the chance to revisit the centre some day! PS. The nature around the centre is absolutely amazing...

This is the perfect place to stay for a Bed and Breakfast in the forest of Halfmoon Bay with the added treat of meditation and healing modalities for those who choose. It is a wonderful way to go within and recharge. You are totally taken care of, excellent breakfast and you can add lunch and dinner to your stay. I was by myself and instantly felt at home with family! My stay was about 3 weeks, some of which was private retreat and I also joined the Christmas and New Year Retreat, all of which were a great experience. The center is a wonderful place to go within, heal and just enjoy life. The cabins are modest with shared bathrooms but I was able to get a single and felt totally taken care of with equal time for self reflection. My meditations became a whole new experience and the site provides beautiful walks and a delightful fire. That being said, you can also use it as a B&B and enjoy the beautiful sites and wonders of The Sunshine Coast! Wonderful :)
