Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful and transformational breathwork method of using non-ordinary states for self-exploration, personal transformation and healing. It is based on insights from modern consciousness research, depth psychology, Eastern perspectives and various spiritual practices. It was developed by Stanislav Grof, MD and Christina Grof, leading pioneers in the field of transpersonal psychology.
A highly experiential method, Holotropic Breathwork combines breathing, evocative music, focused release bodywork, mandala drawing and group sharing. By activating the unconscious and mobilizing blocked energies, this work gives us access to all levels of human experience and activates the spontaneous healing potential of the psyche.
