Brian and Annette have nurtured a passion for the Elementals of Life and have always been keen students of consciousness/energy. The Fire Walk has changed the way they perceive life
Brian “O” is the founder of Quantum Leaps Retreats in Golden, BC. A resident in the Blaeberry valley since 1974, he has been blessed with the wonderful opportunity to continually create/care-take this beautiful retreat/lodge and workshop centre. Annette joined in partnership in 2003. Annette and Brian are gentle teachers and motivators, always honouring that the fire and the elements are truly the teacher. Brian began walking “on fire” in 1982, with Angie from Findhorn, Scotland, a day that forever changed the way he perceived and received life. In 1994 he did the American week long certification course with the Sundoor Institute. Since then he has guided, or as he would say “held space for” 1000’s of people on the journey across the fire. The day before Brian and Annette celebrated their love, Annette walked across the hot coals for the first time. Since then (2004) the “dynamic duo” have been teaching the Fire Walking Seminars together.
Brian and Annette have studied in places like the world famous Esalen Institute in California and have been licensed in various areas of personal growth movement and in outdoor activities such as White Water Rafting, Fire Walking, Breathwork, Shamanic Drumming, Craniosacral and Massage. For a number of years Brian ran a successful Rafting Adventure Company based in Golden, BC. He did the first descents on many rivers, including the Kicking Horse and Blaeberry rivers.
