Closing Certification Intensive Module 2018

 Dear Certification Candidates,

This year is very special since we will have the Certification Intensive Module in Spain - Europe for those of you who are ready for it and wish to join this group. We are really involved in preparing everything to support this intense experience of learning and group sharing. 

We remind you that if you are interested in coming, in case that you would have not fulfilled some of the requirements you should contact us, since GTT will study each case on individual basis. It could be that, exceptionally, you can take part of this process of certification, with the commitment of finishing your missing requirements later. In this case the certification would be conditional and you would not get yet the “official” certificate of having finished the training, and you would not be allowed to practice as facilitator till you get your official certification. Any exception is subject to approval by GTT. We are glad to help you if this would be your case and you would like to come to the upcoming certification in Spain.

It is our hope this time together will be in celebration of you in your unique process of transformation and emergence. We hope it will serve to honor the experiences of working within community and continue to deepen our dedication to the Holotropic perspective.


To participate in this module, the following documents have to be filled in:

  • Training application pack. You can download it here.
  • Certification application Form. You can download it here.

The module will last from August 23rd to September 3rd  2018:

The Certification Intensive will involve a variety of activities including:

  • Individual sharing in the tradition of the "retrospectives" (a self-reflection of your process through the training).
     
  • Mask making.
     
  • SoulcollageTM (process of creating cards of deep personal meaning by selecting and putting together images to shape a collage that represents aspects or our soul, psyche or journey as described by Seena B. Frost, www.soulcollage.com).
     
  • Group sharing, role playing, practical application of skills, didactic exchange, and Holotropic Breathwork sessions. 
     
  • In addition, we will provide an opportunity to weave the synthesis of your personal journey into a larger group celebration as a means of "completion within the larger sense of incompletion". This process of "creative synthesis" will reflect on the theme, "I am the one who…" and may be presented through song, dance, poetry, soul collageTM, mandala drawing, mask making, etc. This can be done individually or in small groups, and will take place on our final day of celebration. This will be explained further when we come together.
     
  • Your music set. Since some of you have asked, here is the protocol for music sets, according to Tav: He won't be reviewing any sets before coming to certification, so his instructions are to bring it with you and he'll go over it with you there. Two ways you can do it: burn the set ahead of time, if you wish, OR you can just bring the individual CDs with the cuts that you want to use and let him hear them in order. Because there are always going to be some changes, and then you can burn the revised version afterwards. 
     
  • Dress up clothes for the final celebration, and anything you'd like to have on the altar during certification are also welcome.

The Certification Intensive is a very special experience.
We look forward to our time together!
Tav, Juanjo, Nienke, Sitara and Jean


  • We invite you to bring five or six mandalas, soul collages, masks or any other art that reflects your personal (or communal) journey during the Holotropic Breathwork training for the retrospective sharing.
     
  • In addition, please feel free to bring any supplemental art supplies, magazines (those with inspiring photos and images are very helpful), specific art mediums for the decoration of masks (we will provide the plaster to make them) and soul collages (we will provide the mat boards).
     
  • We also invite you to bring any costumes, makeup, or instruments that would enhance the presentation of your personal process of "creative synthesis" for the final day of celebration.
     
  • Your music set. Since some of you have asked, here is the protocol for music sets, according to Tav:  He won't be reviewing any sets before coming to certification, so his instructions are to bring it with you and he'll go over it with you there.  Two ways you can do it:  burn the set ahead of time, if you wish, OR you can just bring the individual CDs with the cuts that you want to use and let him hear them in order.  Because there are always going to be some changes, and then you can burn the revised version afterwards.
