Holotropic Breathwork

Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful method for self-exploration and healing developed by Stanislav and Christina Grof. Through the use of deep breathing, evocative music and releasing bodywork, it is possible to get access to realms of the consciousness that are otherwise hard to reach. Thereby our own inner potential for deep healing of physical, psychological and spiritual issues is activated.

Holotropic Breathwork brings together and integrates insights from modern consciousness research, various depth-psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices and mystical traditions of the world. The name holotropic (from the Greek holos = whole and trepein = to move toward) literally means "moving toward wholeness". This method utilizes the spontaneous healing potential of the psyche that becomes available in non-ordinary states of consciousness.

Holotropic Breathwork mediates access to all levels of human experience, including emotionally relevant childhood memories and other biographical issues, sequences of psycho-spiritual death and rebirth, and a broad spectrum of transpersonal/spiritual experiences

Holotropic Breathwork is conducted in groups as part of a residential course with trained facilitators providing guidance as required. In experiential sessions, participants alternate in the roles of experiencers and assistants to their partners. Mandala drawing is also a part of the process.

The theory and practice of Holotropic Breathwork is described by Stanislav and Christina Grof in Holotropic Breathwork – A New Approach to Self-Exploration and Therapy, and many other books by the same authors, including Psychology of the Future.

There are certain medical precautions for participating in Holotropic Breathwork. Therefore participants are asked to fill out a medical form upon registration.
