About the owner: Shera and Chidakash are in love with people and with travelling. This work has culminated in the building of a unique home and seaside retreat called Serenity by the Sea Retreat, on Galiano Island, in the Gulf Islands near Victoria. Shera is an artist and maintains a large studio gallery at home. She also has remarkable skills as a therapist and healer which are enhanced by the extraordinary energies of Serenity by the Sea, its waterfront and gardens. Chidakash manages the retreat and has created a unique style of bodywork called Expansive Body Integration. Together they offer transformational journeys to Peru and annual trips to Thailand to care for elephants hands-on. We are delighted that our Victoria Properties at Mermaid Wharf as a retreat to support people wanting to make their own discoveries and explore their interests and creativity.
