Holotropic Breathwork was developed by the founder of LSD psychotherapy as an analogue for working with medicine and non-ordinary states

It provides one of the core skills in MAPS training for PAT.

It is a legal and useful method for developing an understanding for working in the emerging paradigm of psychedelic therapy.

These workshops are run by experienced  breath workers trained by Dr Stanislav Grof and his wife Christina.

The facilitators have worked in this field for over thirty years

What is Holotropic Breathwork™?

Holotropic Breathwork™ is a practice that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies and transpersonal psychology. The name Holotropic means literally “moving toward wholeness” (from the Greek “holos”=whole and “trepein”=moving in the direction of something).

At the heart of Holotropic Breathwork™ is a belief that we hold within us the resources we need to live fully and deeply and to resolve past traumas, explore creativity or shift emotional blocks. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines accelerated breathing with other elements in a supportive and safe setting. The process is self-directed and the quality and content of experience is unique to each person and for that particular time and place.

Over the centuries, in many different cultures, the breath has been used to access inner resources, whether those resources are needed for healing, recovery, personal exploration or enhancing one’s creativity. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.

“I know of no work that so well incorporates the findings of Freud, Jung and Rank, adding fresh insights, which the methods of those psychotherapists could never have achieved. I do not doubt that many others working in this field would find Dr. Grof’s discoveries a basis for a whole new strategy of research.” 

– Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, The masks of God
