Food delights and is mostly from their gardens. Stafff are great too. We have taken various programs here as well as styed with no program but it... More

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

I attended "Way of Song" workshop with Susan Osborn and Shivon Robinsong at Hollyhock a couple of weeks ago. Being at Hollyhock is always a magical experience despite the difficulty in getting there (easiest is seaplane). Morning meditation with Martha at 6am is often a bit early for me but always worthwhile. Yoga at 7am is more manageable and a... More

I attended a retreat at Hollyhock. It lays in such a beautiful spot, they feed you amazing food and all your needs are met buy helpful, kind people. The environment for spiritual growth is something to be so gracious for. Hot tubs looking on the ocean, bodywork offerings and dance and drumming session to attend and enjoy.

There is no way to adequately explain the experience of attending a Hollyhock weekend/conference/retreat/gathering/party. Their packages are well worth the all-in costs. There is no classifying such a force as Hollyhock is. The facility is amazing - from its garden, to its conference buildings, to its view, its beach, its everything. The level of service is perfect - enough to... More

After hearing about it for many years from friends who had been raving about it, this year I decided to attend Social Venture Institute at Hollyhock. What a unique, special place. While it takes a while to get there (2+ ferries, or a sea plane), it was totally worth the journey. I can't say enough good things about my experience.... More

Was at Hollyhock for Web of Change 2012 - I can't remember when I have enjoyed myself as much. Just the trip alone to Cortes Island is an adventure, and Hollyhock rocked my world. Great people, great place, great location, and full of love. No kidding. Don't miss it.

I spent 5 luscious days at Hollyhock for a Restorative getaway, my second visit. I don't know how it could have been better. Knee-buckling scenery; plentiful, mouthwatering vegetarian cuisine (loved it so much I bought the cook book); an EPIC bio-luminescence kayak tour in the dark, led by a biologist, under a Milkyway-lit sky (!); fun, easy-going, new-found-friends; expert massages;...
