Your Fearless Leader

Sandika Joy is an unconventional woman who has taken the path less traveled. Literally. After leaving family and friends in her hometown in Manitoba, Canada, Sandika Joy moved to beautiful Lasqueti Island, an off-the-grid retreat haven on the west coast of Canada and has spent the last four years building her home and business.

As a certified life and empowerment coach, Sandika now offers empowerment adventures, retreats, and coaching for women who are ready to immerse themselves in nature while learning how to trust in themselves and life again!

This, virtually, unknown piece of heaven will take you back in time before there was wifi, smartphones, and the fast-track lifestyle so many women have become immune to.

You will come back home feeling reconnected, rejuvenated, alive like never before, with the know-how to live your best life!

Lasqueti Island, British Columbia, Canada is just 8 km wide and 22 km long! The roads are unpaved and the island has no public transportation or public campgrounds. Lasqueti is not serviced by B.C. Hydro. Residents live either without electricity or with alternative sources of power like solar or micro-hydro. There is very little industry, yet we have the most amazing local artisans, healers, and people! It is an incredibly safe community with little to no crime, including no bears, bobcats, or any territorial animals. The island has only deer, wild sheep, and domesticated animals.

Where Are Sandika's Empowerment Adventures & Retreats Held? ​​​​​​​

Lasqueti Island is an island off the east coast of Vancouver Island in the Strait of Georgia, Powell River Regional District, British Columbia, Canada and has a population of 399 people. A passenger-only ferry connects the island to the community of French Creek, near Parksville on Vancouver Island.

Sandika's Empowerment Adventures and Retreats are held at the Teapot House; an off-grid, gulf island, vacation home that does have electricity, running water, indoor plumbing, a shower, and toilet (one of the only flush toilets on the island!). Located within walking distance of the ferry dock, restaurants, pub, gift shop, beautiful swimming beaches, playgrounds, and our local farmers market; you'll be 'camping it', so to speak, at one of Lasqueti Islands most lovely homes.

The ferry to Lasqueti departs from French Creek, a few minutes north of Parksville on Vancouver Island. The ride is an hour long and is a passenger-only ferry, meaning you can not drive here. Sandika Joy and her team will be waiting to pick you up and bring you and your things to the Teapot House.






What Can You Expect? ​​​​​​​

Have you ever wanted to just leave everything behind -- even just for a couple of days or a week --  to recalibrate and rediscover yourself? Sandika Joy's empowerment adventures and retreats offer you the perfect place to feel incredibly safe and secure on one of Canada's most pristine and untouched islands, while you get to reconnect with Mother Earth and your own inner force of nature!

Leave your technology, scheduling, and blowdryer at home as you spend time with Sandika and a small group of like-minded women who are all interested in unconventional self-help by tapping into the wisdom of nature, creativity, joy, mindfulness, physical activity, great conversations, having fun, and letting go.
