The Belly2Belly Training Intensive is Level One of a 2-Part Certification Process.

After completing this 5-day intensive, you’ll be confidently able to bring this partnered breathing meditation into your life and work, guiding couples, groups and families into greater trust and intimacy.

Completing Level One allows you to say that you’ve studied with David Cates, but does NOT authorize you to use the Belly2Belly name or brand in advertising your work or events.

If you’re seeking full certification as a Belly2Belly Guide, after graduating from Level One you must be invited by David into the 2-week Certification Training, and complete a 6-month online apprenticeship. 

Only graduates of Level Two are certified to guide official Belly2Belly events, to be part of the Belly2Belly referral network, and to advertise as Certified Belly2Belly Practitioners, with David’s blessing and support.
