2014 Open Hearted Living Mastery program


Quantum Breathwork Training

(Certificate III & IV level in Breathwork*)

Dear Life Enthusiast,

If you would love to live your passion, inspire others, make a difference in the world, and you’d love to make great money while doing it, it’s absolutely possible!

You are here to share your gifts. We have an exciting NEW program to show you HOW!

After 20 years research and development and much deep reflection we are very excited to birth a new level of evolution in personal development trainings.

Through Quantum Breathwork you can assist your clients to find peace and happiness and freedom by resolving the FEELINGS underlying the issues that cause problems in their lives: help them breakthrough procrastination, frustration, anxiety and stress, deepen relationships, increase health and wellbeing, find inner peace, happiness and achieve their goals with greater ease and flow.

I would like to invite you to this exciting, life transforming opportunity. You can attend the Quantum Breathwork Training to deepen your personal growth and / or to go on establish a rich and rewarding career in the field of Emotional Healing.


Become an Emotional Healing practitioner:

This training offers you an excellent opportunity to gain qualifications to establish a rich and rewarding career in Emotional Healing and Personal Empowerment – an area of healing that is rapidly gaining interest and recognition.

This may be the opportunity you have been looking for to gain greater skills in assisting others on the journey of heart opening and personal empowerment. My experience as a healer has been that this is a remarkably powerful healing modality that enables people to grow and make changes quickly and easily. I continue to experience feelings of deep satisfaction and joy in seeing the effects of this process on others.

Since I began working in Breathwork in 1991 ‘spirit’ has continually lifted and guided me forward. I have now been working for over twenty years full time as a Breathwork Practitioner and have travelled the globe three times paying my way ‘doing sessions’. I have always found that people turn up looking for a session at the right time and I have never been short of clients.


Your personal development:

You may choose to attend the training purely for your personal development. I believe that therapists can’t guide anyone further into heart opening than they have journeyed themselves. Further more it is the quality of a healers’ presence or energy more than any knowledge that they may have that determines their healing potential. Thus a major focus of the training will be the growth of each trainee.

The training will be conducted with a strong and loving group of people who are committed to both their own growth and to supporting that of others. The training offers an intense transformational process over a ten month period. Thus it is an opportunity for participants to enrich the quality of their lives, experience major shifts forward in their personal level of awareness, effectiveness and love.



About Quantum Breathwork Training

This is your opportunity to live your passion, inspire others, make a difference in the world and make great money as a Quantum Breathwork Practitioner.

Breathwork is rapidly gaining recognition as a professional healing modality. I currently work in conjunction with a number of Medical Doctors, Psychologists and Psychiatrists (some of whom have completed the Training). I also was on a national committee establishing government accredited Certificate III, IV and Diploma.

The Quantum Breathwork Training has been brought into alignment with the Australian Breathwork Association standards. The training is at two levels: Certificate III level and certificate IV level.

This training is an excellent adjunct to other healing modalities including: Life Coaches, Massage practitioners, Kinesiologists, Psychologists, Doctors, Chinese Medical Practitioners and other healing modalities.



Breathwork Assistant – Certificate III level*

Certificate III level qualifies you to work as an assistant in group breathwork sessions. The focus of the training is to develop the knowledge and skills to effectively facilitate a Breathwork Cycle (a breathe).

This level is primarily concerned with your own transformational journey of healing and heart intelligent life-skills.

Passionately Alive is the foundation. Participants are enabled to use the breath to take greater control of their lives by connecting head to heart, increasing self awareness, clearing emotional blockages (such as pain, anxiety, stress and depression), mastering their emotions and cultivating a positive attitude to life through practices such as acceptance, compassion, generosity, courage and kindness.


  1. Attend, Refresh twice at the Passionately Alive Seminar:
    February 20 – 23, April 3 – 6, May 29 – June 1, July 31 – August 3, October 2 -5, November 27 – 30
  2. Attend 2 day Practitioner Training
    Following PA on Monday and Tuesday in either February, June
  3. Complete assignments from home.

Note: Certificate III level is a prerequisite for Certificate IV level


Breathwork Practitioner – Certificate IV level*

Certificate IV level qualifies you to establish your own Breathwork practice doing 1 on 1 sessions. The training gives you the knowledge and skills to facilitate sessions and establish your own healing practice.

Having established the foundational practices in Certificate III Level, students apply the principles to a wide range of aspects in their lives: emotional healing, inner child connection, gender healing, loving relationships, financial wealth, health and well-being, sacred sexuality, true spirituality.

This level qualifies you to register with Australian Breathwork Association, gain professional indemnity insurance and earn a living as a Breathwork Practitioner.


  1. Complete 5 Life Transformation Modules,
  2. Complete 5 practitioner-training days (on Monday after each module).
  3. Complete assignments from home.

The 5 Life Transformation Modules in 2014 are:

All modules run from 7.00pm Thursday to 5.00pm Sunday (Monday for Practitioner level)

ALCHEMY July 17 – 20
EMPOWERMENT (Inner child ) August 14 – 17
WOMANHOOD September 11 – 14
MANHOOD September 25 – 28
RADICAL BREAKTHROUGHS (Spirituality) November 13 – 16


On completion of the Practitioner Training the trainee will be qualified to apply for Breathworker accreditation with the Australian Breathwork Association and gain professional Indemnity insurance from OAMPS Insurance Brokers (about $220/year).
* Government Certification

This is optional (you can practice without it) those who want Government certification can apply to International Breathwork Trainings (RTO). This can be done any time after finishing the Practitioner Training. Fees for Government Certification III & IV in Breathwork are currently about $1,500.

To participate in the training you need to have a personal commitment to your own healing process and a desire to help others. As the training will prepare you to practice healing you do not have to feel ready to be a therapist right now. You simply need to feel a desire to bring more love into the world. An important aspect of the training will be to expose and release blockages that may restrict your confidence as a healer.

I believe that healers are like bridges or conduits. The healer guides the client from where they are to as far as that particular healer can go. We need different kinds of healers with different experiences and backgrounds to draw on. People seem to be magically drawn to particular healers because that healer can help them to cross their next bridge. This is good news for the healer because it means that to be able to assist others it is not necessary to have ‘it all together’!

So that I can give the time and attention necessary for each participant to make quantum shifts in their life a maximum of 14 trainees are accepted at any time.
