Are you ready to come together on a monthly basis to be supported in a like-minded breathwork based community?
The One Year Seminar, via Zoom, offers a monthly opportunity to check-in, attend a monthly workshop with a Rebirthing Breathwork Trainer and connect with another participant each month for a Rebirthing Breathwork trade. * You may join us for the full year, or on a month-to-month basis.
Since the beginnings of Rebirthing in the 1970s, the One Year Seminar (OYS) has remained a powerful program for community, connection, personal growth and empowerment.
In the One Year Seminar, you will be supported in your process of overcoming the major issues that keep you from living your dream life. The One Year Seminar includes seminars on lifestyle and wisdom teachings from several different traditions to integrate a holistic view and embody practices that will help you walk in your day-to-day life with ease and grace.
Some topics in the OYS include: Healthy lifestyle, conscious living space, breathing to relieve anxiety, using affirmations to create an ideal reality, discovering your enneagram, an introduction to neuroscience and more.
In the One Year Seminar, you, your fellow participants, and one or more trainers will meet up once a month for a year. During each meeting, you will review the past month and receive support, honest feedback and inspiration from other attendees. You will experience the ‘lightbulb moments’ as the happenings in your life start to make sense, and as you start to see new solutions for your day to day walking in life.
When you attend the One Year Seminars with an open mind and an open heart, positive changes will occur as you practice and improve on your spiritual purification skills, clean out a lifetime of old baggage and implement these positive changes in your life. Whether you’re a caregiver, healing practitioner, business executive, parent or layperson, the OYS is a great place to be supported and refueled.

Values and Rules
When it comes to values, there seem to be many different definitions and perspectives.
Basically values are the motive behind purposeful action. They are the ends to which we act
and come in many forms. In this interactive seminar we will define values as emotions we want
to experience such as love, gratitude, compassion etc. and emotions we don’t want to
experience such as anger, sadness, doubt etc. We will also look at what has to happen in
order to experience the values we want (towards values) and what happens in life that causes
us to experience the emotions we don’t want to experience (away values).
We’ll each take a look at what has been running us in the background and investigate how we
can easily change the order of what is important to experience and the rules we have been
living with that often make it hard to feel good and easy to feel bad.
After this seminar you will have a new perspective of how you can be the cause of feeling great
and how not to live at the effect of the world in feeling bad.
