Welcome to Issues Magazine for Empowerment

Issues magazine is a resource for connecting, healing, and awakening that started in 1990 in Penticton, BC. Our mission is to provide inspiration and networking opportunities for the Conscious Community of BC. 25,000 copies are distributed freely in BC and AB. This year she will print a Spring and Summer edition with distribution the first weeks of March. Angele Ortega is the publisher and now lives in the Kootenays with her husband Richard, together they run the Johnson's Landing Retreat Center and she looks after a huge organic garden so if you want to spend some time learning organic skills give her a call 250-366-4402. Issues Magazine sponsors the Spring Festival of Awareness and the Wise Women's Festival held at Johnson's Landing Retreat. Click the image to the right.

Spring & Summer 2017

Angele and Richard Ortega own and operate the Johnson’s Landing Retreat Centre, located 2 hours north of Nelson or 3 hours south of Revelstoke. The 2017 festivals and summer retreats will be updated by March 1, 2017. Please click the cover that interests you or the labyrinth image to the right which will take you to the Johnson’s Landing website. The Kootenays is a great place for a holiday, even a working holiday as we often need volunteers, April to November, to help in the garden or kitchen prep.
