Throughout history, virtually every culture has provided an opportunity and a method to access nonordinary states of consciousness for inner exploration and healing. These methods have included drumming, chanting, dancing, fasting, ingesting psychoactive plants, altering breathing patterns, and many others. Drawing from centuries of such wisdom and adding insights from modern consciousness research, Holotropic Breathwork facilitates access to all levels of human experience, including unfinished biographical material, birth memories, transpersonal phenomena, and residues of trauma stored in the body.
Conducted in pairs in a safe and supportive setting, the process uses accelerated breathing, evocative music, and focused body work to transcend normal limitations and empower the inner healer. Mandala drawing and group sharing allow integration of the holotropic experience with daily life.
Advance registration is required. Please contact Ted or Jeannine if you have any questions or concerns.
