Level 1& 2B : Xenia Retreat Centre, Bowen Island, BC


Xenia is a 38-acre Sanctuary in the heart of Bowen Island - a 15 minute ferry ride from Vancouver's Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal.


The centre is surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected government forests and lakes. It is a place of safety and beauty, and a place to heal, rest, play and discover one’s true nature and inherent gifts.


Breathwave is honoured to offer its Level 1 retreat on this beautiful and sacred land.


Breathwave Level 1 provides the foundation for this form of conscious connected breathing and focuses on personal healing.


It is a requirement for the Breathwave Levels 2a & b and Level 3 Facilitator's Trainings.

Level 1 - The Self-Healing Path


This five day breath journey is designed for you to ground down into the body temple, to breathe and to open your wings through a self healing practice.

This Level 1 is a ceremonial dance of the Five Elements through morning yoga, two daily breath sessions, group council, sound healing, meditation, life visioning, developing goals and intentions, complimentary breath techniques and tools for integration. Your life is changed for ever, this week is to give back to you.

The only prerequisite for this retreat is to establish a clear intention and honestly communicate where you are at with the Application form.

Together we will enjoy two breath sessions daily, share in council, daily movement, rest and fresh catered nourishment for the purpose of healing, embodiment, world service and balance.

Level 2B - The Facilitator's Path

This Level 2B training complements Level 2A and can be applied towards

the one-on-one Facilitator's certification.*


(* For certification, two Level 2s must be completed. This could be two 2As, or two 2Bs, or 2A & 2B.)


Levels 2s are scheduled separately so that there is time to complete a few practicum 

one-on-one sessions in between trainings, and also to allow time for integration. With

this is a deepening of the innerstanding of Breathwave principles and application

of techniques. You are also encouraged and invited to bring questions you may

have from working with clients in your practicum sessions.

This 5 day 50 hour intensive training is packed with the tools to begin the path of facilitating Conscious Connected Breathing. It is designed for those who want to learn the necessary skills to support others as a Breathwave Facilitator. We continue to dive deep in ceremony with the opportunity to breathe and facilitate the breath each day.

This program is in alignment with International Trainings standards for Certification in the field of Conscious Connected Breathing. It will provide the science, skills and experience to become a professional facilitator of Conscious Connected Breathing.

The collective river of experience is guided by facilitators who have dedicated their lives to the gift and service of breath.

We are in an important time to transcend the paradigm we are currently living in. By reconnecting to our inner guidance we are tuning into the new frequencies of this new time through the cellular matrix of our bodies. Through Breath Translation and coaching skills we learn from the patterns that arise in the breath and how to hold space for what is moving while deeply trusting in the Universal intelligence of the human bodies innate wisdom.

Together we will enjoy two breath sessions daily, share in council, daily movement, rest and fresh catered nourishment for the purpose of healing, embodiment, world service and balance.
