Holotropic Breathwork

Holotropic Breathwork

Holotropic – the movement towards wholeness


'With over fifty years of modern consciousness research, Stanislav Grof, MD, developed Holotropic Breathwork based on the transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness, anthropology, transpersonal psychology, and mystical traditions from around the world'.


Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful experiential approach accessing the inner healing wisdom within each individual. It utilizes breathing, music and focused energy release work to access the deeper dimensions of the psyche that can include biographical, perinatal and transpersonal realms of consciousness.


Life's many challenges from birth onward can leave us puzzled - 'why are my relationships unsatisfactory?' – 'why do I feel angry, afraid, frustrated, betrayed, unmotivated, inadequate, spiritually adrift?'- in ways that go deeper than just  present day events.


All these and much more may provide gateways into the deeper realms of the 'self' where underlying issues may find healing.


Integration is important after Breathwork so that, that, which has been experienced in the session can be understood and digested as far as possible at that point and can be enhanced by mandala drawing, journalling, sandplay, voice dialogue and gestault modalities.
