The Crystal Mountain Retreat Centre has been a part of the Galiano Island community since 1980. It is a rural, forest-style retreat facility with simple amenities, located at the north end of the Island, in a secluded area, a beautiful setting with varying terrains of hills, valley and ocean views which is ideal for contemplative pursuits.
The Centre provides space for students to learn from teachers and it hosts an annual summer camping style retreat. There are huts available for long and short term guided and solitary retreats.
CMS is currently proposing land use for the establishment of an all-season Forest Retreat Meditation Centre.
Currently the Centre is undergoing a rezoning process. For more information please see the rezoning page.
