Holotropic Breathwork™ offers an opportunity to touch the deep well of your own inner healing wisdom. Each session is unique, offering a range of experiences that can include aspects of your personal history, psychological death and rebirth, transpersonal interconnections, and the greater reality to which we all belong. Deeper and faster breathing, a specially designed musical journey, and a safe and supportive setting with trained facilitators are the doorway to a non-ordinary state of consciousness with the potential for deep self-exploration, personal transformation, and healing. Mandala drawing and group processing of the experiences are tools for initial steps toward integration of the journey.
