Lodging for Trainees at the Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Biocybernaut Institute Brain Wave Training Center
Note - In September, 2008 Biocybernaut Institute of Canada, Ltd. opened and began offering the full range of Biocybernaut Institute's brain wave feedback training programs that have been developed by Dr. James V. Hardt over the past 30 years.
Training is provided at Biocybernaut's training center in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (see map). Even though we are in Canada, this is the balmy South Pacific of Canada (no huskies or dog sleds). As you can see in the map we are actually South of Bellingham, Washington and we are located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island with a climate tempered by marine influences all around. We are in a beautiful wooded area called Metchosin about 30 minutes drive West of downtown Victoria, BC and we are about 45 minutes drive South of the Victoria International Airport (YYJ in the airport codes). You will be coming here to a lovely estate on 10 forested acres with a mountain, a creek, and a frog pond, with a sizeable lake and hiking trails close at hand.
The estate has an orchard of Bing and Ranier cherry trees, as well as apples, plums and pears, all of which produce delicious organic fruit that you can pick right from the trees or have served along with your meals. There are also almond and walnut trees that produce organic high protein nuts for nutritious snacks and treats. Your morning yogurt will go very well with fresh and crunchy organic walnuts and organic apples!
The orchard also has raspberries and Canadian variants and crosses of raspberries with blackberries such as Tayberries and Loganberries. There is also a large blueberry patch with early, midseason and late blueberries so you can enjoy and even pick for yourself and eat right from the bushes the most succulent, sweet and healthy of organic blueberries.
The four-story estate cascading down the side of a hill functions as both the Neurofeedback Training Center and as a magical Retreat Center where Trainees have the delightful option of staying on-site as our guests at the Retreat Center. The accommodations include three large, comfortable, very quiet and very dark (wonderful for sleeping) bedrooms, which can be rented as double or single occupancy sleeping quarters; and we provide delicious and healthy home-cooked meals. The Trainee's floor has a large deck that overlooks a beautiful green forested mountain by day and looks up to a magnificent clear star-scape at night. The Milky Way blazes a swath of starlight across the sky. There are also hiking trails around a nearby lake and lots of open space for morning exercise.
The two double occupancy rooms rent for $195.00 USD per person per night and both rooms have their own dedicated bathroom with tub and shower. The Master Bedroom has a beautiful large 4-poster king-size bed and private access to the large deck. The Master Bedroom rents for $375.00 USD per night with single occupancy and $425.00 USD per night with double occupancy. The Master Bedroom also has its own dedicated bathroom with tub and shower.
All the bathrooms are equipped with towel warmers for your comfort and enjoyment. All of the beds have luxurious memory-foam mattresses for your deep-sleeping pleasure.
The room rental fees for all the retreat rooms include a full meal service for all of the 7-days of the training, but there is no food service the night before (if you come a half day early) or the morning after the training. There is a full kitchen dedicated to the retreat guests and brain wave trainees. You are welcome to browse the cupboards and your refrigerator for juices, nuts, yogurt and snacks.
By staying at the Biocybernaut Retreat during your training you will get at least one additional hour of sleep, because there is no need to drive off into the night to get to some other place of lodging at the end of the day. And there is no driving back the next day for the start of the morning session. The days are long and you will work very hard in your personal growth processes, so you will really appreciate being able to just walk down the hall when we finish and sink blissfully into your comfortable bed in your dark and quiet bedroom.
Also by staying at the Biocybernaut Retreat during your training you will be protected from the influences of the World At Large. You will be sheltered in a cocoon that is designed to nurture your consciousness growth, and you can forget about external distractions as you focus inward on your own processes of forgiveness, expansion of awareness, heightened creativity, illuminated mental clarity, deepening of love and greater compassion for yourself and others.
