Holotropic Community Meeting on Saturday, May 30 at 2 p.m.
Our two previous community Zoom conversations uplifted us, and reports from many of you suggest that you also found support, connection, and encouragement through your participation. We will offer another opportunity to connect in a similar way on Saturday, May 30 at 2 p.m. CDT.
Our Holotropic Breathwork - Houston facilitators will be present to hold the space for non-judgmental sharing in our accustomed format.
Join Certified Holotropic Breathwork Facilitator Kerry Seizinger on Saturday, June 20, at 2 p.m. for a Facilitated Mandala Process
One of the practices we engage in with Holotropic Breathwork is mandala work after our breathwork session. It is an opportunity to capture something of your experience in visual format before the experience fades. Many participants find this a valuable way to start integrating their experience and a way to remember it long after the intensity of the moment has dissipated.
Besides being a post-breathwork activity, this practice can be used anytime to find out what may be going on within that our conscious mind may or may not be aware of. It can help us access our psyches and “say” that which cannot be spoken or for which words are too hard to find.
In this offering, we’ll use basic supplies and paper to explore what wants to be expressed by our hearts and minds in the moment. No artistic talent or competency is required. If you can hold a pencil, you can do this.
Paper – We use 14x17" paper at our workshops. If you can get something larger than standard 8.5x11” that would be preferable, but any paper or poster board will do.
Drawing/coloring tools – This can truly be anything you have, markers, crayons, colored pencils, pastels, even highlighters will do. You don’t need anything fancy. Just something to make marks and have some color available to you for the process.
Additionally, if you have a mandala from a previous breathwork experience that feels like it may have more to say to you now, please feel free to have it with you to share during our gathering.

It's Not Too Late ! Join Pam Stockton for an ongoing free online book study: LSD and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds from HeavenWhile maintaining his daily life and work as a father, husband, and professor of religion, Christopher Bache conducted a twenty-year odyssey exploring the depths: his own as well as the far reaches of the collective psyche. In LSD and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds from Heaven, Bache shares the gifts and perils of this courageous and costly investigation. Implicit in the book’s title is the remarkable, even outrageous, claim that psychedelic exploration can lay bare the deep workings of the species mind and provide some glimpse of humanity’s evolutionary potential. That the transformation Bache was shown follows a time of global crisis and collective suffering suggests that this intense historical moment is a fertile one for a consideration of the directions toward which our species might be moving.
