All seven branches of the Avalon Alliance are evolving their own programming and events. We offer specialized training for our professional associates as well as a diversity of workshops and events to inspire our community membership. Our local faculty and international guest speakers present the world’s finest approaches to wellness, new science, sustainability and spiritual growth. Avalon community events such as our Renaissance Faires express the joy of living, celebrate the seasons, and highlight important social, environmental and sacred themes. Smaller workshops and classes are usually held at the Avalon Retreat Centre, while larger events take place in a variety of community venues.

Avalon faculty will also guide inspiring retreats and magical adventures in the Okanagan valley and to other parts of the world. Our educational journeys support cross-cultural understanding, spiritual study, hands-on learning and outreach in several exciting travel destinations. Members passionate about sustainability will be offered volunteer service and training opportunities at sister communities in the global ecovillage network. Travel programs through Avalon Journeys are currently under development.

We welcome you to scroll down for our listings and explore our calendar of Programs & Events for 2013. Our online registration form is located below - Avalon's registered community and professional members normally receive a 10% discount.  We will be revising and adding more workshop programs, travel journeys and community events throughout the year, so please check our site regularly for updates.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Avalon's project developments, sustainability consulting services and ethical business certifications are not included in this Programs & Events listing and calendar, so please refer to the relevant branch portals above for more information on these other initiatives.  We will also be publishing a series of brochures shortly that will be accessible from the home page.
