Finding True Abundance

Scott Robinson // September 3rd, 2019


An excerpt from the book, ‘Navigation’, by Scott Robinson

Abundance is the ability to create something and fully have the experience of it.

It is the ability to share your reality with something – to really soak it in. It is also known as high-havingness, and it can apply to anything.

It can be as simple as noticing the heartbeats in your chest and truly savouring the experience. Whether you are asleep or going about your daily life, your heart always beats for you. It goes on, steadily and faithfully, until you are complete with manifestation this lifetime. This is abundance.

Abundance can be a glass of water. First you are aware of the liquid. Then you become deeply present with it. As you drink it, you notice its sacredness. Perhaps you even tune into the entire Universe through the experience.

Abundance is a state of being. It is a way of living, without limits. It is love, ease and relaxation. If you choose it as your set point in life, you see abundance everywhere you look.

Meditation Poem: Be It

Scott Robinson // September 3rd, 2019


The gesture of love
The gesture of pain
The gesture of faith
The gesture of fear
The gesture of Spirit

We navigate the seas of life
With our intent held high
Sometimes with full integrity
Sometimes settling for less than

Each leg has the hope of the ages
As we see the shimmering shores
The Lightened land

Then the reminder

The realm of Light is within
And the journey just a metaphor

We have already arrived
Even before we departed

We just need to
See it
Have it
Be it



What is Acceptance?

Scott Robinson // August 13th, 2019


An excerpt from the book, ‘The Journey is the Goal’, by Scott Robinson

Acceptance is about validating and saying hello to what is, that is, what is going on right now for you.

With acceptance, you can clear the way to move forward spiritually. If you are in denial of a part of your reality, you will continue to be owned by that piece. Accepting what is does not mean you are powerless to change your situation. It means you are clear about where you are, and what you are working with. You are outside of judgment.



Meditation Poem: Always

Scott Robinson // August 13th, 2019

01 Cold Sea Warm Sun 1


As I watch the sun dip low over the sea
The trail of Light always comes directly to me
It also goes directly to everyone else
At the very same moment


Showing the way
Revealing the path
Unique and designed specifically for each one of us
Unlimited suns
Unlimited journeys
We can only see our own sun trail
Our reflection of Source
Our intimate relationship with divinity


I step on the exploding brightness
The energy humbles the ego, excites the Spirit
Releasing my darkness
My wounds
My damage
And I remember
In the end
The Lightness always prevails



Meditation Poem: Sunlight Seas

Scott Robinson // July 20th, 2019


Plunging through waves of gold

Cascading Light reveals you

In the sunlight seas of your depths

Time falls away

The walls crumble

Truth pulses

And I bask in your Light

Creating Balance Through Spiritual Practice

Scott Robinson // July 20th, 2019


An excerpt from the book, ‘Navigation’, by Scott Robinson

Being in balance is a spiritual choice.

We can choose sustainability. We can choose a more holistic way of living. We can choose to be in harmony with each other and the earth. We can shift our value system.

I’m not talking about reverting to a pre-industrial society. I believe in the gifts of technology. I’m just saying to use them consciously. I’m saying be aware of the addictive quality of products, and make conscious choices about how to use them.

As a spiritual warrior, aim to bring spiritual awareness to every decision. Is it of the highest integrity for all of humanity and the planet?

Choose the path of balance.

Why Worry?

Scott Robinson // June 11th, 2019


An excerpt from the book, ‘Navigation’, by Scott Robinson

You are not your worries.

Your worries may profoundly affect you. They may feel deeply familiar. In fact, they may be more familiar to you than anything else in your life. Your analyzer may tell you they are critically important. They may even be part of your identity.

You may have worries older than your current relationship and current home combined.

Despite all of this, they are still not you.

You are Spirit, and spiritual-seniority is possible even when the analyzer wants to churn with worry.

Meditation Poem: 7 Maples

Scott Robinson // June 11th, 2019


Feel the vibrant life all around

They embrace us with protective strength

The lush summer green

Tall graceful joy

Flowing in the softness of the afternoon

Hawk shadow glides over the seasons of nature


We make a circle of sticks

The sacred in this moment

Gentle power around, above, and below

Have it, it is here

Meditation Poem: Cherish This Place

Scott Robinson // May 14th, 2019

water flower

You are here

With deep roots

Connected above

You cherish this place
even though you are not of it

You ground into it
even though it is not your home

You are of the big fire
you are of the eternal flame

Shine the Light

Feel the earth

Experience the manifest

And know you are divine

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 ( 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 since 2007. She is a certified Lightwork meditation teacher and a graduate of Lightwork's most advanced program, the three-year Level 7: Apprenticeship Program.

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.

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.

Elizabeth Stevenson

Elizabeth decided to give Lightwork a try in 2010, after observing a friend's Lightwork journey. Deciding it was a fit, she took classes from her hometown of Victoria by phone for six years. She then packed up and moved to Vancouver to continue her studies, completing Lightwork's Level 6 Teacher Training Program in 2017.

Meditation has helped Elizabeth let go of fears and embrace all aspects of herself. She's excited that teaching now gives her the chance to offer the Lightwork techniques to other people.

Prior to Lightwork, Elizabeth completed a B.A. in anthropology, and certifications in community counselling and permaculture. Music has always been an important part of her life. She enjoys singing opera and jazz, and offering vocal improv classes.

Leslie Dickout

Leslie took her first Lightwork meditation class by phone in 2012 while living in the busy city of New York. She was awestruck by the simplicity of the tools she learned, and how they helped her let go of old patterns. She knew she wanted to learn more.

In 2018 she completed Lightwork’s two-year meditation teacher program, and she began a three-year apprenticeship to founder Scott Robinson that same year.

Now settled in Vancouver and enjoying a much simpler life, Leslie offers Lightwork Level 1 and Level 2 classes, as well as private energy reading-healings.

Zhenya Andriyash

Zhenya started taking Lightwork meditation classes in the fall of 2012 while living in New York City and working for a bank. Meditation was his way of dealing with stress-filled workplace and hectic city life.
