In this weekend workshop, participants will have the opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork, a new form of self-exploration and psychotherapy developed by Christina and Stan Grof. The name holotropic means literally “moving toward wholeness,” (from the Greek holos = whole and trepein = moving in the direction of something). This approach utilizes the remarkable healing and transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness (“holotropic states”) induced by very simple means - faster breathing, evocative music, and releasing bodywork in a safe and supportive setting. These states engender a rich array of experiences with unique therapeutic potential - reliving memories from childhood, infancy, birth, and prenatal life and elements from the historical and archetypal realms of the collective unconscious. Holotropic Breathwork integrates the insights from modern consciousness research, depth psychology, transpersonal psychology, anthropology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions. Following the breathwork sessions, participants draw mandalas reflecting their inner journeys and share their experiences in small groups. The Grofs’ work with holotropic states of consciousness has introduced revolutionary changes to psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy.

The workshop is suitable for participants speaking english or czech.
