Considering Level 4?

Jacqueline // November 20th, 2016

Julia level 4 promo 2

Heads up, everyone! Lightwork Level 4 will be starting up in March 2017. This year-long program is a game-changer so if you’re interested, make sure you don’t miss the train.

Level 4 rocks. Here’s why:

1) You learn to read energy. This is an action-packed roll-up your sleeves program that develops your intuition and spiritual awareness. Scott Robinson will teach you to read energy, so you get to know yourself and the world on a profound level.

2) Deep personal healing can happen. It’s called ‘Transformation‘ for good reason. This is a chance to rid yourself of old energy that is slowing you down, making way for you to float freer in life.

3) Meditation becomes a powerful part of your life, allowing you to take charge and create what you want. This is a way to really ground your practice and own it for yourself.

Sound intriguing? If you’d like to take Level 4, drop us a note at lightwork@lightwork.ca.

You’ll find the details for the program here. Check it out!

The anniversary was marked this summer during the 9-Day Dharma Healing summer retreat at the Lightwork Ecovillage on Gambier Island. You’ll find a series of photos below from that sacred event.

To everyone in the Lightwork community: YES to the brightness and consciousness you bring to the planet. Way to go, people.

Scott Robinson

In 1995, after years of spiritual study, Scott founded Lightwork Spiritual Development, of which he is the Spiritual Director. Since 1995 he has been teaching intensively.

Scott believes that on a core level every spiritual teacher of integrity is teaching the same thing, because the core spiritual principles never change. However, there are unlimited ways to express these principles, and every spiritual teacher and practice has its own unique flavour. Finding a flavour that one likes is the task of the seeker.

Scott is also an artist, musician and poet, and has traveled the world extensively. He feels his purpose is to be on his spiritual path and to assist others on their path. His teaching is safe and supportive with amusement and integrity.

Krista Love

Krista first discovered Lightwork thanks to a tiny poster on Hornby Island. At the time she was practicing yoga and writing a play, but yearned for her true calling. Something about that little poster spoke to her and she hitchhiked to a Lightwork Healing Space event. Soon after she took Lightwork Level 1.

Her love for the practice was so immediate she packed her bags and moved to Vancouver to continue her studies, despite having no job or place to live. She made her way through several years of intensive training, graduating from the Lightwork Teacher’s program in 2003, and later becoming the first person ever to complete the apprenticeship program.

Krista says Lightwork allowed her to transform into the person she always knew she could be. As a teacher, she loves helping people tune into themselves as Spirit and bringing levity to any situation.

Krista teaches a wide range of classes including Lightwork Levels 1 to 3.5, Lightwork Moving Meditation and classes geared for women and parents.

Prior to Lightwork Krista attended theatre school, became a yoga teacher and received a diploma in clowning.

Alison Cretney

Alison has been practicing Lightwork meditation since 2007. As a certified Lightwork teacher, she offers classes suitable to first-time meditators or anyone who has practiced other meditation styles. You can attend her classes in beautiful Nelson, BC, or by phone or Skype.

Alison has found Lightwork's clarity, ease and potency to be transformative in all aspects of her life including parenting, work, relationships and stress.

She has a Masters in Strategic Leadership Toward Sustainability which she applies in collaborative projects seeking solutions for climate change.

Julia Watson

Julia offers meditation and consulting services for organizations and individuals.

She started her conscious spiritual journey in her mid-twenties but it wasn’t until she came across Lightwork in 2002 that she found a meditation practice that really worked for her.

Julia completed Lightwork’s seven levels of training in 2010. She has been joyfully teaching meditation classes and offering private energy readings since then.

She was previously the Program Director at Hollyhock (Canada’s leading educational retreat centre), the Director of Operations at Communicopia Internet, and a producer of the Web of Change conference.

Julia received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University in 1994. She received a permaculture design certificate in 2000.

Julia Thiessen

Julia started taking Lightwork classes by phone from Winnipeg in 2004. The classes rocked her world so thoroughly she moved to Vancouver to continue her meditation studies, eventually graduating from Lightwork's most advanced program, 'Level 7: The Apprenticeship' in 2012.

Her move to the West Coast allowed her to become involved in the Lightwork Ecovillage, where she continues to deepen her meditation practice and learn life lessons (like...you really can grow kale year round!).

Julia is a certified Lightwork Teacher. She offers Lightwork Level 1 and Level 2 classes for beginners, as well as private energy reading sessions.

She brings creativity to the Lightwork administration team, and manages two annual meditation retreats: the summer '9-Day Dharma Healing', and 'Winter Light Week'.

She has an intuitive and studied understanding of all things green, arising from her work in therapeutic gardening at BC Children's Hospital and other locations around Vancouver.

Cathy Belgrave

When Cathy signed up for her first Lightwork class, she entered brand new territory. Coming from a scientific background, meditation was well outside her normal repertoire but she felt compelled to try it.

Without even being able to describe how, she shifted perceptions in all parts of her life and began making decisions that decreased stress. Encouraged, she thought she would keep meditating until it no longer felt like a fit. That day never came. She’s now a committed Lightwork practitioner and teacher.

Cathy offers Lightwork Level 1, Level 2, private classes and energy reading-healings. She blends her passions for writing, teaching and meditation by offering creative writing workshops for children and adults.

Darci Rosalie

Darci discovered Lightwork meditation in her last month of nursing school. She realized she wanted a totally new way of coping with stress, rather than relying on old, unhealthy habits.

So she turned down a fancy job in California with a big signing bonus and season’s tickets to her favourite football team. Instead she registered for Lightwork's beginners class and never looked back.

Throughout her healing journey Darci has witnessed how meditation has the power to shift tough situations and heal what needs healing.

Her favorite thing about being a Lightwork teacher is the simplicity and presence of being in the moment. The big and small of the universe come into focus and make room for significant awareness and healing.

Darci graduated from the Lightwork Apprenticeship program in March 2014. She offers energy reading sessions and meditation classes in a loving, supportive environment.

Tiffany Robinson

Tiffany has been studying meditation intensively for the past 9 years. She is a certified Lightwork meditation teacher and a graduate of Lightwork's most advanced program, the three-year Level 7: Apprenticeship Program.

Tiffany sits on the Lightwork Ecovillage Board of Directors and splits her time between Vancouver and the Lightwork Ecovillage on Gambier Island with her husband Scott and his daughter Cloe.

Her classes are open to teens and adults.

Victoria Smith

Victoria was searching for a way to bring ease and a sense of direction to her life. She signed up for a Lightwork class in 2006 and it was a clear fit.

She brings a deep, joyful commitment to practicing and teaching meditation. Through it, she found a way to create the fun-filled, community-oriented life she always wanted.

Victoria offers group classes, private classes and energy reading-healing sessions. She is currently enrolled in Lightwork’s Level 7 program, apprenticing to founder Scott Robinson.

Victoria is also a spa owner, fly-fisher and nature-lover. She spends free time at the Lightwork Ecovillage, a sustainable meditation community on Gambier Island.

Jacqueline Voci

Jacqueline first learned to meditate as an antidote to stress and a crazy-busy lifestyle in the tech and PR industries. As she gradually made it part of her daily routine, an entirely new way of experiencing life emerged.

In March 2014, she completed Lightwork’s two-year meditation teacher program and began its most immersive course, a three-year apprenticeship to founder, Scott Robinson.

Jacqueline teaches Lightwork's beginner classes (Levels 1 & 2) and offers meditation workshops for companies and organizations. She has hosted workshops for the Dalai Lama Center for Peace & Education, UBC Faculty of Medicine, BC Cancer Research Centre and BCIT Student Association.

She is also a writer and communications consultant.
