The Domain of Birth & Death


During this 7 day exploration, we will plunge theoretically and experientially into non-ordinary states of consciousness including the unconscious death urge, near-death experiences, crossing over, past-lives experiences, spiritual/numinous experiences, and their links to unresolved perinatal trauma.

Come, dive into the work and legacies of  Leonard Orr, Sondra Ray, Stan & Christina Groff, Binney Dansby, Judy Gee, Jeremy Youst and more. This week offers facilitators the opportunity to navigate deep waters of personal possibility while safely and lovingly be held by other trained facilitators in the healing waters of Lake Manitou, Saskatchewan. 

The lectures and explorations intend to flow well beyond Nūma's level three materials and include opportunities to really slow down and repattern, as required, your birth imprints from conception through the hours after emergence from the womb. In this dimension, it is possible to undergo powerful healing episodes known throughout world spiritual traditions as psycho-spiritual birth-death-and-rebirth.

In this training, you will acquire advanced therapeutic skills and tools to work on the edges and in the shadows of the human experience. These will include:

  • Body-based interventions for healing shock and trauma

  • Early attachment dynamics and repair

  • Perinatal and near-death movement analysis and repatterning sequences

  • Techniques to invoke and complete ruptured cycles within the birth-death-rebirth terrain.

  • How to facilitate breathwork in water

  • Considerations and contraindications in warm, hot, cold or cool temperature breath journeys

  • Each participant will experience at least 4 full sessions in the water.

  • Each participant will facilitate 8 sessions in the water.

  • All lectures and breathwork sessions will be spaciously arranged throughout the week so that integration time is abundant and prioritized. You will have time to explore the lake, townsite and the facilities at the spa to support your process.

  • Some water sessions will occur in the very early morning, others near sunset, and an integrative movement sequence will be offered each day.

  • Note: there is the possibility of accessing a Sweatlodge experience offsite with local elders during the week. details to follow. there would be an extra fee of $40 per person.

  • There will be pre-req reading and one short assignment to be handed in 2 weeks prior to the retreat
