Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful, spiritually oriented approach to self- exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and many mystical traditions.
Holotropic Breathwork™ offers many opportunities that may enhance treatment, including entering non-ordinary states of consciousness to seek healing and wisdom via a natural, non-addictive method, a direct experience of one’s Higher Power and for physical and emotional catharsis associated with stress and prior trauma.
Holotropic Breathwork™, as developed on the basis of scientific studies by Dr.Stanislav and Christina Grof, has six elements:
1. Introductory presentation of a map of experiences in consciousness based on four themes of perinatal birth experience in four different realms: somatosensory, perinatal, biographical and transpersonal 2. enhanced breathing (hyperventilation) 3. Evocative music 4. Body work focused on amplifying somatic blocks until they resolve spontaneously 5. Mandala drawing of the experience and 6. Supportive group sharing of experiences without analysis or interpretation.
Holotropic Breathwork™ induces a non-specific amplification of a person’s psychic process facilitating the psyche’s natural capacity for healing.
Stanislav Grof states that “in holotropic states, we can transcend the narrow boundaries of the body ego and reclaim our full identity.” With controlled breathing, inner wisdom uses the opportunity to work toward physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing, and developmental change.
