Sacred Breath Academy (another program on the HEAL watch-list) asked that HEAL add Clarity Breathwork as well and investigate it too.  From a brief review of the content at, it seems Solaris and Devi made up their "unique" style of "breathwork" and are otherwise unemployed artists who decided charlatanry was like being traveling entertainers where they do past-life readings, some intuitive/psychic stuff, and entertain with music and dance.  However, they do disclaim any responsibility for any harm they may cause or that may be caused by visiting their website or participating in their "offerings" and require those visiting the site and purchasing goods or services through them completely indemnify them from any legal liability.  So, that's under their "Terms of Service" link at the bottom of their home page and not expressly stated clearly otherwise.  HEAL has found that it is typical of frauds and/or charlatans to use such disclaimers in hopes that it will discourage people from seeking remedies at law who otherwise were taken advantage of by the charlatans.  And, the law expects everyone to exercise due diligence so if you don't read through everything including the "Terms of Service" before purchasing goods and services, then you are at least in part responsible and likely will only get a partial refund depending on goods or services purchased.  Now, if undue influence or other issues come into play such as manipulation or coercive thought reform, then you'll likely still need a lawyer or to file a complaint with the proper authorities.

HEAL did check with the Secretary of State in California and found "Clarity Breathwork" is not licensed to operate and therefore is operating illegally.  If you are a direct victim of their fraud or illegal operation, you can report them to the Attorney General of California using the consumer complaint form available under California at  HEAL advises against doing business with those who accept no responsibility for their own goods and services, require customers/consumers indemnify them from their own misconduct or illegal conduct, and have no business license therefore are operating illegally and outside of most regulatory purviews.  However, that's HEAL's position and while reasonable we understand some people prefer to assume the risk.  If you do, please don't act as if HEAL didn't warn you or like HEAL should now take care of it all for you so you don't have to be bothered with filing complaints or lawsuits yourself while expecting we can take care of it.  HEAL can help raise awareness by identifying and sharing information about suspected and confirmed frauds, cults, and human traffickers.  We help attorneys and law enforcement when we are requested to assist.  And, we can provide additional information from our research and connections with other victims in the event a class action ensues and additional victims are invited to join the suit.  But, unless we ourselves are direct victims of Clarity Breathwork or any other program on our watch-list, we can't file complaints against them with the proper authorities nor expect even when we do that that they can or will investigate.  The authorities tell us the direct victims must report otherwise it is hearsay and not enough for probable cause unless enough prima facie evidence is present that they can get a warrant without an identified victim.  Cults and frauds often intimidate or mislead victims regarding their legal remedies and that's part of what they do because deception is part of the elements of the crime they are committing.  And, often the statute of limitations on such fraud is 1-2 years depending on jurisdiction where it takes longer than that sometimes or often for victims to realize they are victims of fraud.  And, for criminal prosecution it really has to meet the statute of limitations requirements or just sue civilly and you'll be asked if you read and understood any disclaimers along with whether undue influence or high pressure tactics were used to prevent or discourage you from understanding what you were getting into when you decided to enroll. 


All segregated congregate care providers, including those on our watch-list, are welcome to contact us to correct any information or provide additional data that may assist with delivering the whole truth to the public.  We've found in many cases where this offer has been abused or resulted in revealing additional basis for our concerns. For some examples see: and  Now, we are willing to look at the facts and may have questions or require documentation backing up any claims.  We do verify licensing, academic backgrounds, and other qualifications when investigating and researching programs on our watch-list to assist consumers seeking additional information on such programs or victims requiring assistance with getting corroborating evidence of their claims.  We do that in order to make sure the information we provide is accurate and verified and cite our sources.  In the event any information we've posted is in error, we're happy to make a correction.  And, for information on how such requests are handled and have been resolved historically, see:

HEAL does not support segregated congregate care for many reasons which include that many such facilities are abusive, exploitative, fraudulent, and lack effective oversight often as a result of fraudulent misrepresentation coupled with the ignorance of those seeking to enroll loved ones in such facilities, programs, schools, or centers without a valid court order and involuntarily.  In the United States such involuntary placements done without a court order are apparently illegal as they either violate the Americans with Disabilities Act community integration requirement or due process rights of those involuntarily placed.  Now, in regards to parents, in the United States parents have the right to waive their own rights, but, not the rights of their minor children.  See for more information.  Now, most facilities on our watch list include waivers, indemnity clauses, and sworn statements parents must sign assuring the program that the parents have the right to make the placement involuntarily and without due process in a segregated congregate care environment, however, California and federal prosecutors as well as settled law appears to suggest that is not the case.  In fact, in the David Taylor case found at, Taylor sued Provo Canyon School and his mother as co-defendants.  His mother was found liable for 75% of the damages awarded to Taylor as a result of multiple complaints including false imprisonment, while the program was found only 25% liable because the mother owed a duty of due diligence to investigate anyone to which she would entrust care of her child and she failed to do so. 

Now, HEAL opposes segregated congregate care and we find most placements are happening illegally in the USA which if the youth understood their rights would result in unfortunate outcomes for the parents, particularly when they don't exercise good judgment and support the fraud and abuse rather than their own children when they need remedy and justice.  And, HEAL supports all victims of fraud and abuse in seeking remedies at law for any crimes or torts committed against them.  And, that's true whether or not the program or victims are in the USA. 

HEAL has a 5 point argument against segregated congregate care we'd like you to consider:

a.  Segregated care is unconstitutional and a civil rights violation.  It is only permissible if a person is unable to survive independent of an institutional environment.  For more on this, watch the HEAL Report at  Or, see:  which includes in part:    "United States v. Florida – 1:12-cv-60460 – (S.D. Fla.) – On April 7, 2016, the United States filed an Opposition to the State of Florida’s Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  In the Motion, the State had asked the Court to rule, on a variety of grounds, that the United States could not recover damages for unnecessarily institutionalized children to whom the State had been deliberately indifferent."

b.  Institutionalization is always dehumanizing and coercive.  Institutionalization always harms the institutionalized and deprives them of protected civil rights.  Dr. David Straker, Psychiatry Professor at Columbia University's School of Medicine (Ivy League) explains this in detail at  "Many institutions, from prisons to monasteries to asylums, deliberately want to control and manage their inmates such that they conform and do not cause problems. Even in less harsh environments, many of the institutionalization methods may be found, albeit in more moderated form (although the psychological effect can be equally devastating)."  (See website linked in this paragraph for more info.)

c.  Institutionalization is not in the best interest of children.  Institutions are not ever better for a child than living with a loving family.  Source:       

d.  Reform schools, residential treatment programs, and other segregated congregate care settings have been shown to be ineffective and harmful.  Best source on this currently is:

e. Boarding Schools, even the "good ones", result in a form of social death, isolation, and cause both anxiety and depression.  Therefore, it is clearly not in the best interest of the youth subjected to those environments.  Sources: and

Beyond the above arguments against segregated congregate care, we have reports from the NIH, Surgeon General, Yale University Studies, and much more showing the methodologies of behavior modification are damaging, harmful, and ineffective.  You can request these documents via e-mail.  In addition, for such programs offering academic services or claiming to offer diplomas, certifications, or the like, it is important to check to see if it is a diploma mill with no accredited academic services.  Please see: for important information on how to avoid education/training scams.

If you'd like to see what HEAL suggests rather than segregated congregate care (i.e. committing a crime or tort against your child if done against their will without a court order), please see:

Now, we have many programs on our watch list including this one and we do our best to update the site regularly with any new information.  And, we appreciate public participation in information gathering and your support.

If you have a complaint against this facility, please file a complaint with the appropriate law enforcement agency or your home state's attorney general.  For reporting resources see:  If you have entrusted care of a loved one to this facility, please consider bringing them home because even in the "good ones", it causes anxiety and depression to be segregated.
