Circle of Trust: Healing Hearts 


The healing and transformational power of a circle of women gathering with the intention to create a safe and comfortable sacred space is beyond description. When shy souls emerge, and wounded hearts open, then all Angels and Ancestors celebrate, cheer and create mysterious portals for our path of ascension. That is why I cherish and value this work so much and hold a great passion and reverence for mediating such benevolence of Creation! 


In an intimate and comfortable environment, we will explore various yogic, meditative, therapeutic, and ancient ways how to hold ourselves in grace while we navigate twists, turns, and dead ends of the Labyrinth of Life.  As women used to sit together throughout the ages and share their wisdom, so shall we, in this emerging consciousness of the Aquarian Age. The building of group energy as we proceed through the series usually accelerates us in heightened awareness and sacred aspirations. Use of smudges, herbs, essential oils, and other natural remedies will be included. 


The Protocol for Kundalini Yoga and a confidentiality disclaimer apply for this circle. This is a closed confidential therapeutic group suitable only for women who are available for all scheduled meetings. Please apply with a short explanation of what calls you to participate.

Deepening Your Understanding of IBP Principles
through Kundalini Yoga and Perennial Wisdom Traditions
                            with Jana Ziman at the Forum


        June 7,8 & 9, 2019 1610 Joan Ave Crofton, BC


Register with the IBP Institute   Phone: 250-815-5241 or email: artist2u@mac.com


In this 3 day intensive workshop (indoor and outdoor) the aim is to connect your understanding of IBP core principles with your sensory awareness (felt sense in the body). We will cover energetic boundaries, character style and agency through dynamic interactive group activities that will expand your consciousness while blending with elements.

Transpersonal component will be enhanced through creation of a sacred space, connecting to our ancestors, working with epigenetics: embracing, releasing, forgiving and establishing a state of gratitude.

Enhancement of your personal healing and professional skills is an active component in this gathering. Your Inner Child will receive attention and opportunity to express his/her true nature. Times of serious engagement, mindfulness, and playful foolishness will weave in a wide spectrum of activities.

What to expect:
Kundalini Yoga: breath, kriya, mantra, deep relaxation, meditation, and sound healing;
• Grounding practices: providing safety for an expanded consciousness - supporting nervous and glandular system, and holding a steady anchor;
• Ways of directing kundalini energy for the purpose of energizing,
purification, release, and activation of new patterns;
• Exploring energetic boundaries – depletion, overcharge, moderation, and balance;
• Rhythm of body-mind-heart alignment; integration of practices into daily routines, which leads to personal integrity, walking the talk;
• Mantra or affirmation as a tool for mind control and manifesting in higher vibrational levels (good parent messages and agency mantras in broader perspective);
• Sacred rituals and holding energetic space for intunement and attunement (inner and outer vibratory alignment).

Each participant brings his/her own essence, adding into an alchemy of this gathering. For that, our program will vary and we will go with a natural flow and trust in what transpires and where energies direct us.

The basic framework:
Starting Friday evening: 6-9 pm
Saturday: 10 am - 1 pm
               1-2 lunch
               2-6 pm indoor/outdoor activities
               6-7 pm dinner
               7-9 pm evening session
Sunday: 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

The Protocol for Kundalini Yoga strongly applies (no alcohol, drugs and heavy medication at least one day before and after the weekend). This group is limited to 12 people, men and women, no age, state, or shape matters. Please apply with a short explanation of what calls you to participate at janaziman@shaw.ca

A one-day workshop offering practical tools for living awareness and applied consciousness.


Transpersonal psychology is a sub-field or “school” of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the framework of modern psychology. The integration of transpersonal experiences into daily life can often present a challenge to clients working with unconventional modalities or altered states of consciousness and to therapists concerned about the optimum outcome for their clients. Yet it is the integration of the experience and not the experience itself where the real work of healing takes place. Working with somatically based practices of Kundalini Yoga, energetic boundaries, and self awareness, this workshop will offer practical tools for clients and therapists alike.

We will create a sacred space where small objects of special importance are welcome with you, as well as your Spirit Guides and Ancestors. With set intention we will begin our journey of self-exploration. The morning practice will be dedicated to Kundalini Yoga, which awakens vitality and a sense of aliveness in the body. It is suitable for all age, body, gender, state or shape. Known as Yoga of Awareness, Kundalini offers a unique blend of breathing techniques, kriyas, meditation, mantra and deep relaxation.

In the afternoon, we will explore energetic boundaries, using body as a sensor, techniques for grounding, self-awareness, inner peace and stability. Prepare for outdoors should weather permit. Allow flexible timing at the end for the closing circle. Journals, blankets and meditation pillows come handy. Dress in layers, ideally in loose and natural clothing. A water bottle and consistent hydration is a must for an optimal outcome. This group is limited to 12 people.

Jana understands from her own life that illness, major challenge, or shift can serve as a true blessing and become a portal to awakening. Jana holds many degrees and certificates, but nothing bears more value to her than a direct experience, integration of practices into daily life, and a practical ways of walking the talk. She is passionate to share simple approaches in various communities around the world. Her main resources are Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, IBP – Integrative Body Psychotherapy, and Earth based practices. Her studies and experiences in transpersonal field, world spiritual traditions, plant medicines, shamanism, Medicine Wheel, Ayurveda, etc. all confirm for her the same: Life is a somatic experience. The physical body is a very sophisticated tool for the soul to learn how to be a human and live a vital, meaningful and fulfilling life. Everyone is equipped to do so, because our true essence is of Love and Light. There are no enemies, only tough teachers. Jana’s dynamic and graceful style of establishing Body-Home for the Soul under any life circumstances delivers assurance, empowerment, gratitude, and creative spark to invent one’s own user manual for a human body.

Willow Walker is a gifted energy worker who uses the energy of Nature to heal emotions, one’s physical, mental and spiritual bodies. His techniques include grounding, chakra balancing, aura and meridian cleansing, energizing and shielding.

More to consider about this retreat:

When your familiar way of suffering becomes less than a big fear of the unknown, then you are ready and ripe for a deep core healing journey like this. There awaits your Inner Child - forgotten, eager to receive your attention, available and beautifully innocent. In order to create a true connection, we need you out of your familiar daily surroundings, where you get easily distracted. Therefore, even if you live in this community, going home during the retreat is not an option. You are developing a sense of HOME within you. We encourage to commit and remain in silence as much as you can, avoid chit-chat with other fellow participants, and fully focus on your inner process. Single rooms are of support for this aim. With the "all inclusive package" you do not have to attend to anything else, but YOU. If you cannot, this may indicate your subconscious avoidance...TO FEEL. Cut off feelings are the source of disconnection from the core Self. Also, your commitment to stay away from alcohol, drugs, stimulating or suppressing substances, for at least a day before and during the retreat is a MUST, if you are to benefit from this retreat. We will provide support for you should this be your concern. Ask more questions...250-716-6753

The current of the RIVER OF LIFE

is swift, turbulent, and unpredictable indeed.

It opens VIEWS

of surprisingly challenging and exciting

inner and outer landscapes.

It calls for all our MIGHT as embodied spirits,

testing our abilities to be HUMANS

with big compassionate hearts, integrity,

unconditional dedication, TRUST IN and LOVE FOR this CREATION.

We are on the mission. We are creating.

We are the Ones we have been looking for!

Hold your head up and notice who else is there with you. Keep up and you'll be kept!

Even when we do not gather,




you are doing well

no matter what the outer appearance suggests!

The anchor is in within, in one's inner TRUTH

and the LIGHT which the SOUL emanates

through the haze of illusion, and ripples of maya.
