I spent over a week at Hollyhock training in EFT Emotional Freedom Technique and it was so incredible. I was there on training to add to my healing arts business but also a personal journey of transformation going through a divorce after 23 years. Hollyhock was an absolute sanctuary for me especially walking through their gorgeous gardens every day. I... More

We spent several days on Cortes Island and decided to make a trip to Hollyhock in the process. Excited to visit their beautiful gardens, we were "hushed" by the lady at the front desk when attempting to ask a question. We would have understood if this was done politely; however, politeness was not her strong point as we noticed during... More

I stayed at Hollyhock for six days in July, participating in a sea kayaking workshop, and it was one of the best experiences in my life! The dorms were very clean and the facilities intelligently designed, the food 3X daily was absolutely delicious - garden fresh and completely organic, the sense of community was truly magical, the Pacific Ocean as...

I was at Hollyhock for a dance seminar. It was a lovely location, and the accommodation was very comfortable. I had an ocean front room in the Carousel building and it was perfect. I shared a bath with someone which was no problem. The food is very good and there is always fruit and toast and tea and coffee available.

The setting is beautiful, from the stunning old garden to the majestic forest to the clam-filled beach. The food is even better, with sumptuous vegetarian feasts (always complimented by the famous yeast dressing) to the beachside all-you-can-eat oyster barbecues. The 24-hour tea bar in the main lounge was always stocked with a variety of great organic teas. Our room was... More

The very best care from the staff with excellent meals. There is no better location to spend a quiet vacation or attend a course. The garden was beautiful and the walks in the woods were amazing. I would recommend this for anyone looking to attend a course in a beautiful setting.

I stayed at Hollyhock for a month, what a luxury, as a volunteer program participant. This place is a gem, an other worldly experience. You can sit in hot tubs (they are clothing optional, mind you) and stare and the stars and sunset... and every day you are fed delicious, nutritious, vegetarian meals! Salmon and oyster BBQs twice a week...... More

Many years ago I had the opportunity to go to Hollyhock with my friend and teacher Eckhart Tolle. I was moved at how beautiful the establishment is. How spectacular the food is and the experience at the retreat was a paradise in learning. I am pleased I will be teaching at Hollyhock on August 6-10, 2014 to experience the magic... More

After hearing about Hollyhock from a number of close friends, I finally decided to attend this year. What an outstanding experience! I had heard great reviews about the food and the overall atmosphere and I can confirm that both were much better than I was expecting. I went as an individual as part of one of the conferences being hosted... More
