About the Location
Bliss Haven Retreat Centre is in Dunnville, Ontario - about a 2-hour drive from Toronto, in Haldimand County. The Centre is located on over 80 acres of conservation land that is blessed with strong freedom codes, due to its historical significance as a major stop on the Canadian Underground Railroad. Energetic healing vortex points also surround the Centre which is situated amidst ancient archaeological sites, including those linked to Paleo-Indian era settlements. You'll also find fossils of coral reef dating back over 300 million years embedded into the area limestone. All of nature supports, guides and activates your human spiritual journey in this POWERFUL holding place of galactic remembrance and healing. Expect magic.
Within the Centre mansion, there are 3 large kitchens, 8 bathrooms, spacious bedrooms with large bay windows, 4 meeting rooms, a richly furnished library, reading nooks, and large living/family rooms with fireplaces and dining rooms. There are also several porches and walking trails for you to relax and immerse yourself in nature.
During your free time at this retreat, you are welcome to stroll through the numerous beautiful landscaped lawns nestled among mature trees, water fountains, huge ponds, vegetable gardens and farms. You might also enjoy a walk or 5-minute drive to numerous beaches. Swimming, canoeing/kayaking, and cycling are also available to be added to your stay at the Bliss Haven Retreat Centre.

Your Journeying lead, Philip Jacobs has many years of experience in integrating sound healing and journeying through his training in many protocols, including those adapted from the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Science (MAPS) and also in working side-by-side with and assisting in sacred ceremony with Daybreak faculty Dr. Gabor Maté.
Have a listen (video below) as Philip and Dr. Maté discuss core elements of the upcoming Daybreak retreat program, including:

Check Your Heart-Field Resonance
Are you feeling especially called to this training retreat and journey intensive? You are lovingly invited to apply the following heart-field resonance check-in before you proceed with next steps:
Take a deep breath in and close your eyes. Relax your shoulders and sit in your most sovereign and present state. Place your hand (or both hands) over your heart or upper heart /heart chakra area. Ask your heart wisdom to guide you on whether or not this experience, at this time, is in your best and highest interest.
Please note that this is a mastery level mind-body-spirit integration program. As we will be engaging in serious depth-inquiry, along with intensive somatic and energetic clearance and release work, it is ESSENTIAL that you have already gone through advanced self-healing from trauma (beyond safety and stabilization work), and are both comfortable and proficient in long periods of depth meditation, mind-body presence, and heart-to-heart relational space holding/consciousness.
This 7-day reset is NOT for people just beginning on their spiritual awakening journey (it will be too overwhelming). This program is also not appropriate for anyone currently experiencing acute addictions, crisis, mental health issues, or unresolved trauma patterns.
Please be advised in advance that this is a meat-free and alcohol-free retreat, and we will be advising on suggested pre-retreat detox protocols for somatic, emotional and mental preparation, prior to your arrival. You walk on sacred ground when you come to this gathering. For your own psychological safety and well-being, we ask that you sincerely follow your heart-wisdom along with a quick check that you authentically meet the conditions necessary for your most meaningful interactions with mystical experiences, transcendence explorations and depth-journeying.
