Ethics & Agreements

Venus Rising strives to create a safe and consecrated container for students to experience the building of pressure so that they may change on a soul level. We do all in our power to limit the potential risks of re-traumatization. Safety First, Transformation Second.

The 3 C's

Snake - Spiral - Gold flip.png

We have some agreements that we ask Students and Teachers to abide by while in sacred space together. We call them the 3 Cs.


1 – Commitment.

We ask that you remain committed to the process. Please show up to all the sessions unless you are absolutely not able to. If that happens for some reason, talk to one of the Facilitators or Apprentices. Do not leave the workshop space, or – if you are staying on site – leave the property without first talking to either a Facilitator or Apprentice. Please remain committed to the process, even when it is difficult.


2 – Confidentiality.

What you see here, remains here. What you hear here, remains here. What we mean by this is, please do not share other’s process with anyone else, including your partner or close friend. If you choose to share your own process with another, that is up to you, but please respect the privacy of fellow participants.


3 – Chemicals.

We ask that while you are at this workshop, you do not use alcohol or recreational drugs. This also includes time when you might be off-site. Do not bring alcohol or recreational drugs to the premises. Please note that this agreement does not include prescription medications.

  1. I understand that Shamanic Breathwork® is a trademark legally registered to Linda Star Wolf.

  2. I agree not to use the ® and TM symbols when promoting Shamanic Breathwork.

  3. I agree to include the SBW Facilitator Certification Mark on all my promotional materials. (The Certification Mark can be found in the SBW Facilitator Resource Library).

  4. When referring to my certification in workshops, private sessions and promotional materials, I agree to make it clear that I am a Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator trained by Venus Rising.

  5. I agree to offer the Shamanic Breathwork Process as taught to me in my training. (Refer to the SBW book & SBW Facilitator Resource Library)

  6. I agree to have ALL students sign release forms. (A generic form is provided in the SBW Facilitator Resource Library.)

  7. I understand that in my workshops, private sessions and promotional materials, it is inappropriate to refer to Shamanic Breathwork in generic terms (such as calling it “breathwork” and leaving the word “shamanic” out), or to substitute another word in place of the word “shamanic.”

  8. I understand that creating a program under a different name but with the same concepts and teachings is a form of plagiarism and is grounds for the revocation of my certification.

  9. I agree to use Shamanic Breathwork Music obtained from Venus Rising only for the Shamanic Breathwork Ceremony, and not to use it in other ceremonies or promotions.

  10. I understand that failure to adhere to these agreements may result in the revocation of my Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator Certification.

**Venus Rising is on an evolving Spiral Path. Our programs have been lovingly created by a team of individuals connected to Spirit and grounded in practical reality. We will continue to change our training programs, agreements and policies according to the needs of those we serve.
