The beautiful White Pines Dojo and Retreat Centre  is located just outside of Slocan City, BC. The dojo was built by Roland Werner and is operating as a martial arts (Aikido) academy.  The two storey building is post and beam straw-bale construction measuring 40 ft. by 60 ft. (2400 square ft.) and has accommodation upstairs for 12 people.  The dojo is ‘off-grid’ using solar, propane and wood for heat. Nestled on forty acres of gently sloping land of young forests and extensive wild flower meadow  there is full sun exposure and 360 degrees of breathtaking vistas, including the Valhalla Mountain range.


You must have medical coverage if you are coming from out of province or country.  You need to let us know of any serious medical issues or dietary requirements when you register for the retreat.  You will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival.
