Welcome to a Journey of Transformation

Holotropic Breathwork is a time-honored practice specifically crafted to guide you into non- ordinary states of consciousness. Originating from the profound synergy of deep, rapid breaths, rhythmic music, and bodywork, Holotropic Breathwork offers more than just an experience—it presents a natural, often transformative journey without the use of drugs.”

At HOLOS BREATHWORK, we invite you to dive into this transformative journey. Drawing from the wisdom of Dr. Stanislav Grof, our sessions enlighten the three stages of Holotropic Breathwork: Preparation, Experience, Awakening, Healing, and Integration.

Preparation, Experience, and Integration

PREPARATION
Setting the Stage for Transformation

Every transformative experience is marked by three stages. Our workshops are tailored to ensure you’re not just consciously participating but diving deep into an unconscious exploration of the self. Prepare yourself to journey into the mystery, exploring new depths, dimensions and facets of your being.

EXPERIENCE
Venturing Beyond the Boundaries of Today’s ‘Contextual View’: Understanding Holotropic Breathwork

Holotropic Breathwork reveals layers of consciousness – from somatic sensations and personal memories to the deeply spiritual or mystical experiences. While terms like ‘perinatal’ or ‘transpersonal’ might sound esoteric, think of them as deeper realms of human consciousness, tied to birth experiences or extending beyond the personal to the collective or spiritual.

INTEGRATION
Who Are You Now?

After journeying through these profound states, you return with fresh insights and heightened awareness. Now begins the task of integrating these revelations into your everyday life, as you come to understand this new version of yourself.

Spiral – The Ongoing Evolution

Life is not linear but a spiral, with each experience feeding into the next. Your journey through Holotropic Breathwork is no different. As you integrate your insights, you simultaneously lay the groundwork for your next experience or journey.

A Cultural Lens on Non-Ordinary States

Different cultures perceive non-ordinary states of consciousness in unique ways. While some honor and celebrate these states as pathways to deeper wisdom, others might stigmatize or misunderstand them. We aim to create an environment where these states are not just accepted but revered, serving as bridges to deeper understanding and growth.

Fostering a Context for True Transformation

In a world teeming with diverse philosophies and scientific breakthroughs, there’s an increasing acceptance of transformative experiences like Holotropic Breathwork. However, the cultural framework to support and truly understand these encounters is often lacking. At HOLOS BREATHWORK, our mission is to create this framework, ensuring that every individual has the tools and knowledge to embark on their transformative journey.

Embark on Your Transformation Journey

If you’re ready to explore the depths of your consciousness, our Holotropic Breathwork workshops await. Join us, and let’s create a community that not only understands but celebrates the transformative power of non-ordinary states of consciousness.

Dive deep, and discover yourself.
