The Four Pillars


Type: Health & Wellness Retreat Centre

All are welcome at The Four Pillars Health & Wellness Retreat Centre for personal exploration and community connection.  With a focus on mindfulness and authentic living, this inspirational new space offers a variety of wellness-themed retreats and is available to rent for private events. From solstice celebrations to paint nights, yoga classes to gong baths, kids summer camps and personal healing retreats, the activities in this open-hearted space rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.


Named for the “The Four Pillars” of Truth, Beauty, Service and Creativity, these themes form the core of the retreat centre’s programming that seeks to help people get closer to their own true voice.  Meditation resources such as journal prompt, spiritual books, guided audio meditations and quiet spaces assist with inward reflection. The owner and founder, Emily Gillies, a Holding Space Facilitator, uses circle conversation and personal exploration techniques that invite folks to gently inquire into their own stories, life situations, difficulties or sorrows. When we stop running from our problems and bravely turn to face them, so much healing is possible.  The Four Pillars Retreat Centre supports people on this journey.


Nestled along the quiet shore of the Rafferty Reservoir, the atmosphere of peace, tranquillity and solitude assist with finding time to slow down and quiet the anxious mind. Alternative healing modalities such as massage, reiki and so much more are regularly offered. Self-directed retreats for making artwork, writing or soul-searching are able to fit with your personal schedule. Co-Dependent Anonymous support group meetings will begin weekly in the fall. Other programming such as “open drop-in days” offers on-going ways to connect with the place.  Groups and businesses are invited to rent the space for meetings, personal development days, or team building initiatives with the option of facilitation tailored to your unique goals. Full catering service and overnight accommodations provide for your needs, and the beautiful main space is perfect for connecting to others, nature and yourself.
