The Inner Quest invites 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.

“Plato’s Cave” will delve into the deeper levels of the theurgic experience and the art of transcommunication. This week-long retreat is designed to guide returning students and those with more extensive experience to deepen their understanding and practice beyond their preconceptions of mediumship.

Experience an esoteric journey of the spirit aimed at further unfolding your natural spiritual self and your connection to the Spirit. We invite you to join students from around the world as we push back the boundaries of your awareness, enhance your perception and deepen your abilities.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

I am interested in attending the Gathering Series. Which retreat may I apply for?

If this is your first time attending an Inner Quest Gathering Retreat, you may be invited to join us for either Celebrate the Magic or Magician to Mystic regardless of your level of experience. All three Gatherings are mixed level retreats. Once accepted to a specific retreat, you will then be placed in the class most suitable for your development.

You may apply for any retreat; however, your final placement will be at the discretion of the teachers. They will assess your application based on your level of experience and your personal objectives.

Celebrate the Magic Retreat is an ideal opportunity for those new to the intuitive arts to explore their ability. It is also designed for those who wish to explore a more holistic approach to working with their intuitive, psychic or mediumistic ability.

Magician to Mystic Retreat is an outstanding week that students return to year after year. Take your mediumship to a deeper level and broaden the foundations of your art and craft. This retreat is designed for varied levels of experience.

Plato’s Cave Retreat is designed for returning students of the Inner Quest Centre who have had training in our approach and is by invitation. This retreat focuses upon deepening the esoteric experience rather than solely 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 changes each time so as to provide a different experience in a similar format, to develop skills and deepen knowledge. Some students return year after year to participate in the same retreat! The experience is always different.

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. Unfortunately we cannot offer discounts for attending multiple 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 in order to give each participant ample opportunity to work.

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

If your question still remains unanswered, please feel free to contact us with your specific question by contacting the Inner Quest office. Thank you.
