One of my favorite places in the world is on Cortes Island in British Columbia, Canada. Hollyhock is an island retreat center that I’ve been associated with since the 1980s. Located on an amazing beachfront property, Hollyhock has both mature forests and mountain vistas, features beautiful flower gardens and some of the best food you’d ever want to eat!
One can go to Hollyhock for a personal retreat, or one can enroll in a workshop offering personal enrichment. Hollyhock also offers Social Change programming and is a hub for interactions whose ripples are felt around the world.
I’d like to go the Social Venture Institute offering in September to participate in workshops and panels with business leaders who utilize business as social platform. Check out the offerings if you’d like to see one of my favorite places.
I generally fly to Vancouver, and jump on a float plane which gets me within a ten minute shuttle from the docks to Hollyhock. Returning, I layover for a night or two in Vancouver – one of my favorite North American cities.
