Xenia – Rest and Restoration
Bowen Island has been an immense source of artistic inspiration for me over the last year .
While I have explored many natural and isolated areas around the island, my first visit was to a retreat at the north end of Killarney Lake, a place called Xenia. There is a wonderful accounting of the Greek origins of” Xenia” and if you don’t know it I will include a link at the end of the article where you can do further reading. “Xenia” on Bowen island is expressed in beautiful west coast themes of wood, nature, peace, meditation, creativity, animals and chance encounters. The perfect place to restore yourself and your creative powers. All images © Dean Buscher
