BREATHWAVE CERTIFICATION

CERTIFICATION FOR ONE-ON-ONE FACILITATION

Upon completion of all requirements for level 2 training, an individual will be certified as a Breathwave Facilitator for one-on-one sessions

Certification requirements changed as of September 30, 2019 in response to community feedback for additional training and higher certification standards. Below are two sets of requirements for certification - one for those who trained prior to September 30, 2019 and one for those who trained after that date. Although not required for facilitators trained prior to this change, we highly recommend attending Level 2b to further cultivate skill level, knowledge and ongoing learning.

CERTIFICATION DEADLINE: 

March 31, 2021 is the deadline for anyone who did their Level 2 training prior to September 30, 2019 and wishes to be certified under those requirements. Effective April 1, 2021, only one set of certification standards will remain that include the higher level of practicum requirements.

CERTIFICATION PROCESS: Once you have completed all the requirements, please prepare an email that includes scanned copies of your completed Breathwave Practicum Forms and your completed online Testament of Completion of Certification Requirements form. This checklist is your measure of accountability and integrity acknowledging that you have completed all requirements in order to be a one-on-one Breathwave facilitator

The Breathwave Practicum Forms and Checklist of Requirements Form can be emailed to breathwaveteam@gmail.com. They will be kept on record for future reference.

CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR GROUP FACILITATION (475 hours)

(Breathwave Trainer)

In order to receive the blessing to facilitate Breathwave circles, the following are required:

  • Completion of all certification requirements for one-on-one facilitation

  • Completion of Level 3 training

  • Adherence to the Breathwave Code of Ethics and Clear Agreement Policy

  • Administrative preparation: Intake Form, Self Responsibility Reclamation Form (provided by Breathwave)

  • Consultation with Robin to ensure sufficient ground and foundation is in place prior to offering circles.This includes having done a suitable amount of personal work so that space can be held with integrity and safety.

 

BREATHWAVE CODE OF ETHICS & CLEAR AGREEMENT POLICY

for all trained Breathwave facilitators of The BreathWave Foundation. 

 

I commit to honor the profound depth of this service with the highest integrity by following this Code of Ethics:

 

1. Personal Hygiene

I commit to professionalism through the way I present myself including Personal Hygiene. (body odor, breath and a presentable appearance) 

 

2. Clear Communcation and Agreements 

I commit to clear communication with my clients in regards to scheduling, awareness in regards to preparation for the session (how they can prepare) and honoring the time slotted for their session with my full attention. 

This may include an 'Intake Form' (An Intake form should include any present medications and a medical history) 

 

3. Confidence 

I commit to holding any personal information about the client and their experience completely private. 

 

4. A Safe Capacity (For Level 3 Trainers)

Holding a maximum capacity of 6 - 12 breathers per each Facilitator at once. We agree to 1 - 12 ratio is a maximum number of breathers for an integral safe container.

 

5. Completing the Training Process including the Final Exam
The Facilitator's Training program (Level 1, 
2A and 2B)  is designed and intended for Facilitators to professionally coach breathers one-on-one. Level 3 is an in-depth Ceremonial Training-program to prepare Facilitators to professionally hold groups with the experience necessary to show up for a full circle of breathers with the highest integrity.)

 

6. Sexual Integrity 
To honor the depth of intimacy with safety in regards to holding space for healing sexual trama and other layers of emotional trauma; I commit to holding an impersonal space in service to anything that may arise.


And further; we as Facilitators commit to refrain from any sexual contact/exchange with breathers, for a minimum period of 6 months - 1 year after any breath session.


The work we do is very intimate and puts people in vulnerable states. Altered states of consciousness mixed with open sexual and emotional centres inherently create conditions for someone to be at the whim of the environment and facilitator around them. There is a potential power imbalance between you and the client (s) and they are at the whim of these power dynamics because of the inherit vulnerability of the client. Power dynamics that are only exasperated by the current conditions of wounding and how this can create subordination and submissiveness. The breather could project fantasies of saviour and hero onto the facilitator. 

 

7. Selfless Service and Consistent Breath Practice 
I commit to the highest service for my breather by keeping my own agenda, personal stories and personal healing separate from the person I am holding space for. This means not taking anything personal as well as not taking responsibility for any one else's healing process. We simply bring others to a more favorable place to heal them selves. We do not claim to heal anyone or anything. 

This also includes committing to my own self practice on my own time in order to offer the highest service as a clear channel and loving support. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

We ask all Facilitators to commit to this agreement in full respect for the global family of breath Facilitators and all sentient beings. If you can not meet this agreement we ask that you refrain from using the name Breathwave or Robin Clements name as your teacher, in order to respect the professional reputation and integrity of this service. 

Any facilitor who does not respect this clear agreement policy will have their blessings as a Breathwave Facilitator revoked, until further healing and investigation is acted upon.

If any certified Facilitator or breather is in awareness of a violation of this code of ethics it is their responsibility to share this with the leaders of the Foundation.
