Haven self-development programs foster international relationships

It’s not the first time a group from mainland China has come to The Haven Institute on Gabriola Island.

It’s not the first time a group from mainland China has come to The Haven Institute on Gabriola Island.

And it’s not the first time a team from The Haven has gone to China to lead a program.

But for the first time, both events are happening at the same time.

The Haven has offered programs in Asia for more than 20 years, delivering a message of communication, personal responsibility and self-discovery with its Come Alive program.

Ernie and Cathy McNally, faculty members, along with assistants, travelled to Shenzhen, China to teach the program in partnership with HaiWen, Haven’s partners in that country.

Haven’s teachings were well received in China, with nearly all programs selling out.

Now, with Living Alive Phase 1 last year and the current Living Alive Phase 2, Chinese participants have the opportunity to come to Gabriola to experience the programs half a world away from home.

More than 40 visitors have participated in the two programs and numbers are expected to continue growing.

Since 1983, The Haven has offered experiential programs for personal and professional growth and development, emphasizing self-responsibility, effective communication, healthy relationships and creative expression.
