We invite you to join renowned mediums, Brian Robertson and Simon James, for a week-long residential summer retreat at a peaceful lakeside centre on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

The Magician to Mystic Retreat is designed for both the novice and those more experienced who wish to take their mediumship and mechanics to a deeper level. This week is also suitable for those new to the discipline who wish to understand the real basis of their craft.

Experience a journey of the spirit aimed at discovering your natural spiritual self and your connection to the Spirit. It is an opportunity that will provide you with the time, support and understanding you need to develop and use your intuitive abilities. We invite you to join students from around the world for an introduction to esoteric foundations, and extensive practical opportunities to work with your intuitive abilities.

This is a popular international retreat and fills quickly. Please complete the Invitation to Apply in the first step to placement, which will be at the discretion of the tutors.


Frequently Asked Questions

I am interested in The Gathering Series. Which retreat should I attend?

The teachers will place you in the retreat most appropriate for you based on your background, experience and objectives. You will receive an invitation to register in a specific retreat based on this assessment. Whether you are in the earlier stages of your development or have a number of years experience in mediumistic studies, if this is your first Gathering retreat with the Inner Quest, you should attend Magician to Mystic.

Magician to Mystic Retreat (formerly the Gathering Session I) is an outstanding week that students return to year after year! Take your mediumship to a deeper level. This retreat is designed for all levels of experience. Participants will be divided for part of the day into two or more small groups, each working with a different tutor for more tailored teachings.

Plato’s Cave Retreat (also known as The Gathering Session II) is designed for returning Inner Quest students with more extensive training. This is a retreat focused on deepening the esoteric experience, rather than aspects of mediumistic development. Participants are expected to be mature in their development.

I have already attended this specific retreat in the past. May I participate again?

Certainly. The curricula of all our courses and retreats change each time so as to provide a different experience in a similar format, develop skills and deepen knowledge. Some students return year after year to participate in the same retreat and always learn from the experience.

May I attend more than one retreat consecutively?

Please indicate that you wish to attend more than one retreat in your initial application. If your request is accepted, you will be invited to register for each retreat separately; you may combine your payment. We do not provide discounts for attending multiple consecutive retreats.

How many participants will there be?

The total number of participants largely depends on the number of primary teachers. There are normally 10 to 16 students per primary teacher.

I still have a question that’s not covered on your website.
