Our Centre

A Haven for Gathering that Feels Like Home

Springbrooke Retreat Centre is located an hour outside of Downtown Vancouver in beautiful Langley, B.C . 

We are grateful guests on the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Katzi, Kwantlen and Matsqui First Nations. The historic acreage that Springbrooke Retreat Centre sits on has been a sacred place of gathering and healing for centuries.  Our 16-acre property is nestled in a grove of cedars on the banks of the Salmon River and radiates tranquillity and heart. In years past, First Nations elders gathered for ceremony on the river bank and hosted sweat lodges on site. Still today, Indigenous groups continue to make use of the Centre. We take care to nurture the beauty of the property by growing a diverse range of healing plants, herbs and flowers. Our property also provides a safe haven for a wide range of animal life such as deer, owls, rabbits, coyotes and eagles. We are proud to host many local and international organizations, businesses and groups that are committed to personal growth and the well-being of the world.

Our centre is a home away from home for many and we hope you will find it the same for you. Springbrooke Retreat Centre is owned and operated by Clearmind International Institute.

Meals are included with accommodation and our Cooks do a fantastic job, catering to many special dietary needs.

Vegetarian and vegan meals are also available. Tea, coffee and filtered water is provided throughout your stay.

  • Breakfast includes tea & coffee, a toast station, fresh fruit and a main breakfast item of your choice (eg – baked frittata or French toast).
