Open Dates

No registartion required

In living more deeply into our vision as an interfaith/intercultural spiritual centre, Five Oaks offers an opportunity for weekly guided spiritual practice and a community meal.  Gather just before noon in the interfaith prayer space on the lower level of the Main Building.

This opportunity can be coupled with the Companions Mini-Retreat.



Karen Eade

She’s a non-shedding dog, gentle, and full of love. Kevin (yes, Kevin is a ‘she’) is Karen’s side-kick and co-leader of the Companions retreats. Kevin is a 3-year-old Bernadoodle that calls Burlington home and Karen her roommate.  She is a proud graduate of training school where she shepherded Karen through.  Kevin’s interests focus around napping and she is happiest to rest her chin on your knee (if you’re ok with that) or fall asleep at your feet. (if you are concerned that Kevin will provoke an allergic reaction, talk to us and we can provide alternate accommodations).
