How a workshop is and to whom it may concern

 

Holotropic Breathwork is an effective method of deep self-exploration and experiential Psychotherapy that combines breathing, evocative music, focused body work, art (mandalas) and group integration. Through breathing and evocative music the psyche becomes activated and it is possible to go into expanded states of consciousness, which Grof calls ‘Holotropic’.

Just like men and women of all cultures have always done, we gather to delve, through expanded states of consciousness, into therapeutic areas and into areas of personal and group healing. These states are comparable to those obtained in spiritual practices and meditation, fasting, shamanic trances and rituals of many cultures. They involve experiences with an immense healing, transformative and evolutionary potential, in which the awareness expands and opens us to understand the nature of existence.

In this context, the psyche has the amazing ability to activate our own therapeutic healer, who selects and brings unconscious contents – often with a strong emotional charge and of great psychological importance – to our awareness.

In these experiences we do not only connect with the biographical material (our life from birth), but also with the perinatal level (related to the birth process) and with the transpersonal domain, the domain in which the usual limits of the body and the ego are transcended, in order to connect with (what Jung called) the ‘collective unconscious’ and to connect with the universe in general.

‘This is the only job I know that so well incorporates the findings of Freud, Jung and Rank, adding fresh “insights” that the methods of these therapists could never have achieved.’ Joseph Campbell

WHO SHOULD ATTEND A WORKSHOP OF HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK

Holotropic Breathwork is recommended for personal growth and for therapeutic treatment of psychosomatic, emotional and psychological difficulties. It allows the access to deep layers of the psyche and activates our own inner wisdom. Working with Holotropic or expanded states of consciousness provides a broader, more enlightened and loving perspective of our own life and reality.

It has been discovered that the activation of the psyche generates spontaneous healing processes, guided by a deep organismic wisdom. When continuing the Holotropic process, the results are astonishing. Sometimes within a few sessions, sudden releases from depression, phobias, asthma and from severe tensions and stress can be observed. The connection, the experience of that inner power, the absence of guilt, the opening to the spiritual dimension that goes beyond the body and the ego, allow us to experience a profound self-confidence.

The workshops are intended for people who want or need to: - Access states of relaxation and to release stress.

- Activate and to integrate unconscious contents.

- Interact and connect with like-minded people.
