Unleash Personal Healing and Transformation Through the Breath

Are you struggling with old wounds or emotional baggage?

Do you feel blocked on your journey to inner growth? 

Are you ready for personal empowerment through shamanic initiation?

Join us in beautiful Bali for a transformational journey through the ceremony of Shamanic Breathwork - a powerful healing process that inspires individuals to reconnect with their own inner healer. It’s a journey taken by connecting the breath, chakra-attuned music, focused bodywork, art, and group sharing to leave you empowered with the magic of who you truly are. Through Shamanic Breathwork, old wounds and dysfunctional patterns are released and transformed, bringing wholeness and healing back into your life, your loved ones, and the world around you.


This 14 Day immersion will take you through the Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP). The program is a series of five transformative initiations based on the 5 Elements. This highly experiential process taps into your inner self, releasing blocks to higher love and wisdom. As you re-integrate through embodiment of the 5 Elements, you will be set free to stand in the truth of your authentic being and walk a path with heart. You will journey beyond the limitations of ego identity and shape-shift into your sacred soul purpose.


In this Shamanic Breathwork Immersion, you will:

  • Learn shamanic tools to create real and lasting change in your life

  • Transform troubling issues from the past that still impact you today

  • Reclaim your passion and your power by recovering lost aspects of your authentic self

  • Deepen your connection to unconditional love for self & others

  • Enhance your ability to support others; and share your unique gifts and sacred purpose with the world


You will have the best possible facilitators to ensure a safe and meaningful journey. Master Level Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator Levi Banner, and his team of staff and apprentices teach in a blend of ancient traditions and modern methodologies. They bring to you open, loving hearts and minds, willing to support and travel with you wherever you need to go. Along with your initiation into Shamanic Breathwork, you will begin to learn Shamanic Breathwork facilitation skills. Additional practices could include Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Astrology, Shamanic Ceremonies, and other activities providing spiritual integration and a well-rounded experience touching body, mind, heart, and spirit.


The training takes place at The Yogi’s Garden, a peaceful retreat center set amongst an organic farm in Central Bali. It’s a sea of tranquility in the midst of natural beauty, ringed by ancient forest, with stellar views of earth and sky. Together, we will embody the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana — embracing deep harmony between people, nature, and spirit.


Surrounded by a high-vibrational community of change-makers and visionaries, space will be held for you to develop a connection to your own inner healer and move into an incredible new level of shamanic understanding. You will find purpose, develop new skills, heal old wounds, learn more about yourself, find a family of like-minded seekers, and delve deep into yourself through the breath.


In union with the breath, you will undertake a journey through the Five Elements during a New Moon to Full Moon astrological cycle, initiated in ceremony and surrounded by a loving tribe. On this path of personal healing, we will become empowered to heal ourselves. Breathwork, ceremony, and the natural beauty of Bali will leave revitalized and reborn.

What's Included

Snake - Spiral - Gold flip.png

You will process through five levels of shamanic healing, each an initiation based on one of the 5 Elements. The five initiations each feature a Shamanic Breathwork journey, utilizing the breath, sound healing through chakra-attuned music, energetic bodywork, soul return and extraction, shamanic art processes, scribing and group processing. Journeyers enter an altered state of consciousness that transforms and integrates trauma experienced earlier in life; creates a connection with their soul and spirit guides; and receive visions about their sacred purpose in the world. You will walk between the worlds: working on physical, emotional, mental, and energetic levels as you learn to embody the elements.


In addition to the guidance of your teachers, you will have the support of a co-journeyer - a fellow student who will assist you with whatever your need during your psycho-spiritual voyage. You will switch roles with your partner halfway through the day, helping to create a nurturing, supportive, and safe space in which all participants can grow together as a community. Upon completion of the elemental journeys, you can feel fully embodied through each Shamanic Breathwork experience.  


Elemental Initiations

1. Water: The Spiral Path and Five Cycles of Change

Each time we come back to something, we come back changed. Constant renewal is the shamanic path - the spiral of life. Everything in the universe flows in a spiral. Here we get settled in and see what’s stirred up in ourselves, as we are new in the space and like water, fluid. We connect with our new community and to the new practices.


2. Earth: Your Family Tree and the Tree of Life

The family we choose is our family of choice. We begin to release the blocks and barriers of our own heart - the habits, patterns, and traumas or wounds developed from our family of origin. Here we see in a solid way what they are, and how to free ourselves. We tap into these family roots, and the interconnectedness of the tree of life as we embrace family and friends.


3. Fire: Meeting the Shadow and Inner Work

Here we shine a light on our dark places - what’s beneath the surface, what’s following you, and what you can’t see. Fire transforms all it touches. In an intense and cathartic initiation, we use the power of fire to burn away our patterns; to release anger, frustration and blame; and finally come to a come to a warm heart space.


4. Spirit: Opening to the Inner Beloved

We all posses an inner beloved and have the capacity to connect to the divine. Here we learn to love our ourselves, our innate gifts and our inner other. Now that we have cleared so much, it is time to see how much we can open our hearts to our own inner self - that part of you that you show up for. Connecting to our inner masculine or feminine, we experience the union of duality.


5. Air: Rising to the Call of Your Sacred Purpose

The deepest human longing is discovering what we are here to do and why. We embrace forward movement - becoming empowered agents of change, and enabled in our mission. Here we accept the seat of a teacher and learn how to carry this role forward into the world. We step into being the best versions of ourselves as we finally connect to our true life purpose.

The Yogi's Garden

Snake - Spiral - Gold flip.png

Our home for this 14-day fully immersive training will be The Yogi’s Garden, a peaceful retreat oasis set amongst an organic farm in Central Bali. The farm and facilities are owned by world-famous The Yoga Barn, and created by the same designer who created all the beautiful buildings there. We are privileged to be among the first to use these plush facilities situated in nature balanced with an onsite pool, spa and comfortable accommodation.


Surrounded by stillness, this is a spot to reconnect to nature. A fresh water stream runs through the land, on its winding path meeting lush forest jungle that is home to sacred banyan trees and a sacred cave. Here, you can go for long walks alone, or choose to be surrounded by loving community together.  Like the farm’s organic vegetables, you will find space for growth, spreading your roots in deep transformation and nourishing connection. 


This peaceful, serene place will envelop you in the energy of the land. Wide, open skies will beckon you with spectacular nighttime starfield views, perfect for our astrology learnings. Frogs and crickets will serenade you, as fireflies dance on the gentle breeze passing above the sacred land. Our lovely studio spaces host walls of glass that wrap your breathwork and learning sessions in visions of lush greenery, tranquil enchantment, and stunning views of the holy Mount Agung volcano.


The Yogi’s Garden is an hour north of The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali. Since 2007, The Yoga Barn has been the inspirational center of yoga and healing in Ubud. The Yogi’s Garden is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud. It creates a welcome, corrective balancing that makes it an ideal place for inner connection, and the deepening of your embodiment along the shamanic path. In oneness with the earth, it is magical.

Shuttle service will be available from Denpasar Airport & Ubud to The Yogi’s Garden at the beginning of the course, and back to Denpasar Airport & Ubud at its completion.

Healthy & Delicious Meals

Included in your accommodations cost are three healthy and delicious farm-to-table, buffet-style meals a day. There will also be an all-day table stocked with healthy snacks and fresh fruit to keep your vibration high throughout the training sessions.


The meal menu will consist of natural, wholesome, organic foods in a delightful array of vegan, gluten-free, raw, and Ayurvedic choices. Meals will be primarily made with organic food grown directly at The Yogi's Garden, or locally sourced organic foods whenever possible. The organic farm supplies much of the produce and fruit to The Yoga Barn and it’s three Ubud restaurants. You’ll be overlooking the very farm where the veggies grow and were just picked from as you enjoy your meals.


Prepared in a creative fusion of Eastern and Western styles, you’ll experience a symphony of yummy, healthy fare that will flood your body with nutrients and ignite your chakras. Vibrant, fresh cold-pressed juices will keep your energy high — and be thirst-quenching proof that it’s possible to both cultivate health and savor the deliciousness of it all.


Community meals will be perfect for getting to know your fellow tribe members and exploring the natural beauty of the retreat center grounds, either together or alone. Fresh and healthy as can be, mealtime will be a highlight of your stay here.



Elegant, comfortable accommodations will greet you at The Yogi’s Garden. The housing will make you feel right at home, blissed and snug while meshed into the synergy of the retreat center, working farm, and glorious natural environment.


Accommodations are shared in spacious, clean and comfortable 4-bed Dorms. A deluxe shared experience with not-your-average bunk beds, direct access to the garden and lounge deck. Hot water kettle with tea & coffee station, air conditioner and fan, hair dryer, and towels, are furnished with your accommodations. The plush bedding and comfortable spaces will be yours to call home as we immerse ourselves as community and family for these two weeks.


All housing is onsite, nestled in the Bali countryside, and featuring lush views of the surroundings. Together in this magical environment, we’ll have the opportunity to laugh, learn, and bond with our shamanic tribe.


Stay at The Yogi’s Garden is a requirement for the training; and is the only option as the retreat center is located away from major towns.
