CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR GROUP FACILITATION (415 hours)
In order to receive the blessing to facilitate Breathwave circles, the following are required:
Certified Breathwave One-on-One Facilitator
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 regarding scheduling and how they can prepare for the session. I commit to preparing myself and the ceremonial container prior to each session, and to honouring 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)
I commit to holding any personal information about the client and their experience completely private.
4. Completing the Training Process including the Final Exam
I commit to completing all training and certification requirements prior to offering group circles. The Facilitator's Training program (Levels 1, 2) 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.
5. 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.
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.
