San Juan Island: Northwest Paradise

Map of San Juan Island

Sparkling blue waters. Deep green forests. Breathe in the fresh island air and feel renewed, refreshed, revitalized, relaxed. Welcome to the San Juan Islands! Just a scenic ferry ride from the northwest Washington mainland lies a paradise for the adventurous in spirit.

The San Juan Islands are located about 75 miles from Seattle, WA in the northwest corner of the contiguous United States, between the US mainland and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. There are 172 islands, some little more than rocks, and over 300 miles of shoreline.

The Clearing is located in a peaceful atmosphere on a 43-acre estate on San Juan Island. This location was selected because it is both remote and accessible, and provides an ideal place to conduct our healing work.
