Holotropic Breathwork Workshop in Peace Castle Schlaining/Holotropes Atmen in der Friedensburg, 31 August - 2 September 2018

This Holotropic Breathwork weekend workshop allows for self-healing and self-exploration as well as accessing the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. During this weekend workshop four breathwork sessions (two as a breather and two as a sitter) will allow you in a very safe setting to access expanded states of consciousness, in which your own wisdom connects with your inner healing and inner transforming power. This healing wisdom guides the experiences towards those aspects which carry a charge, and are ready to be processed or integrated. Holotropic Breathwork might be of interest if

  • You are seeking a more experiential approach to healing, one that goes beyond talk therapy.
  • You are experiencing a major life crisis and seeking deep wisdom and insights.
  • You want to release unresolved issues from the past.
  • You want to understand the emotional roots of a persistent physical / psychosomatic condition.
  • You want to expand your consciousness and further explore your spiritual path.

Schedule

We start on 31st August at 5 pm and close on 3rd September at lunch time. Please arrange your travel so that you can attend the whole workshop from beginning to the end (for timing see the further information on travel below!).

Friday: Opening Circle, getting to know each other, soul collage and introduction to Holotropic Breathwork.

Saturday: two breathwork sessions (one time “breathing”, one time “sitting”) will facilitate entering into the deeply healing and transformative power of expanded states of consciousness. Integration will happen through artwork, sharing (as much or as little as you like) and dancing.
