To be a sacred place where people, as individuals or in intentional community, come apart to look deeply into their own lives and the world in light of faith and values, and find their calling to participate in Spirit’s healing work in creation. To provide a residential setting where people of different faiths (or no faith), cultures, Nations and spiritual seekers can explore new understandings of neighbour, faith and the earth and model communities of compassion for the sake of the world.
We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional territory of a number of First Nations and acknowledge their stewardship of this land throughout the ages. We seek a new relationship with the Original Peoples of this land, one based in honour and deep respect.

That combined with the surrounding nature makes this place a very grounding and spiritually rich space to heal and grow. The staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating throughout the process. They even prepared a fire for us that we could enjoy. Thank you to Five Oaks and all the staff that made our stay and the work of our group so rich with love, peace and joy. Five stars!”Tim Sitt
