As the sun rises at THE O.C. Motel, repeating ‘Gwanseumbosal’ translated from Korean to English to: ‘All is well’. In between the eagles flying into the ocean for their breakfast. Morning yoga and movement along the shore line, creates balance of both mind & soul. The old growth forests on the coastal islands beyond the town, create peace. As the herons gracefully dance inches above the ripples of the Ocean, thoughts of the second hand of a watch stopping, sink in. A light breeze grazes my skin, creating a deep moment of contemplation.
Conclusion: Qualicum Beach Vancouver Island, is a global Wellness Hub.
Experience and wisdom present in many locals of Qualicum, help lead a burgeoning new energy. A youthful resurgence scatters throughout the streets. A population under 10,000, surrounded by nature and old growth forests, a flourishing community. These longevity secrets make Qualicum an ideal spot as one of Canada’s Blue Zone (the communities with the longest life expectancy).
