Naramata Centre offers much more than a place to stay for a week. Programs usually run Monday-Friday from 9-noon for guests who have registered for our programs. An important and sweet aspect of a week here is the sense of community formed through not only the registered programs, but also through activities available to everyone staying on site.
There are regular activities that happen every week:
Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. -- the week's guests begin to check in. Sunday evening -- Welcoming and Information Circle.
Monday - Friday -- Programs.
Wednesday -- Morning yoga on the beach, Afternoon Naramata Farmer's Market, and Evening Sacred Pause.
Friday - Community Potluck.
Saturday morning - Guests check out by 10 a.m.
