Owners of Quantum Leaps Retreats
Brian “O” has studied and taught in places like the world famous Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, and has been licensed in various areas of personal growth movement and in outdoor activities such as White Water Rafting, Fire-walking, and Holotropic Breathwork. He has done Sweat Lodges and Vision Quests, nurturing his warrior nature. For a number of years, Brian ran successful Rafting Adventure Companies based in Golden, BC. He did the first descents on many rivers, including the Kicking Horse and Blaeberry rivers. Brian has nurtured a passion for outdoor adventure since his early adulthood. He is both an accomplished outdoor person and a perceptive teacher and guide. He is also the builder and creator of all the buildings at Quantum Leaps. He is now passionate about sustainability and creating a life “off grid” and self reliant.
Nature/Native Spirituality is where Annette finds her peace and reference for all that is divine and good. In 2006, she and Brian were guided to begin leading Sweatlodges for all people, guided by the Grandmothers. She has been living in the Canadian Rockies since 1996 (coming from the Edmonton region) and moved in 2003 from Canmore, AB. Golden, BC is just the natural progression. She has joined the Quantum Leaps’ vision and goals with a loving and open heart. The lodge is evolving as they work together in common vision, purpose, and love. You will find her outside in the Garden, nurturing and loving all the vegetables that is grown here on the land. She loves to canoe, hike, and explore beautiful places in the world.
