About Holotropic Breathwork
Holotropic Breathwork is a process of self-exploration that utilizes the healing power of deep breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, and mandala drawing to enter holotropic “moving toward wholeness” states of consciousness. Following in the tradition of the shamanic practices, rites of passage and mystery religions of ancient cultures, we create a supportive and caring space in which participants’ own inner healer can select the most relevant material and bring it up for processing. These sessions are valuable for people seeking relief from physical tension or emotional pain, an opening of creative channels, or a deepened connection with the inner Divine.
This technique was developed by Stanislav and Christina Grof as a non-drug substitute for his earlier work in psychedelic therapy and is considered the most powerful non-drug method for entering holotropic or non-ordinary states of consciousness. There are currently hundreds of practitioners worldwide. For more information about this technique of self-exploration and for lists of practitioners in your area, check out the websites of the:
