GTT The Power Within, Spain, with Sitara Blasco

6-day residential module with Sitara Blasco.

In this module, Holotropic theory comes alive. It’s where we experience the essence of the practice first hand. We not only discuss the principles that support and inform the practice of Holotropic Breathwork. But we go beyond theory to show why Holotropic Breathwork is such a special method for personal exploration and healing. This is a unique opportunity to move to deeper levels of your own inner process and also to learn what’s behind the Holotropic approach to working with others. As you become acquainted with accompanying others on their journeys, you will also discover how to translate the Holotropic theory into a tool for enriching your everyday living experience.

Topics included:

1) The power of the Inner Healer;

2) The Holotropic Breathwork lineage; the history of the healing potential of non-ordinary states;

3) The importance of facilitator presence;

4) An inside look into the framework of a Holotropic Breathwork session;

5) How to encourage and support the integration of the Holotropic experience;

6) Holotropic bodywork, including: its history, theory and practice, - demonstration of bodywork, - hands-on work by participants, - discussion of specific challenging situations that facilitators encounter, - ongoing exploration of the way Holotropic Breathwork can change our everyday

During the module participants will have the opportunity to know the practical experience of Holotropic Breathwork. Sitara Blasco will lead 4 Holotropic Breathwork sessions; there will be also mandala drawing and integration time. Each person will have the experience of two sessions as "breather" and two as "sitter". This module is open to people interested in Transpersonal Psychology and modern consciousness research.

During the course of the six-day workshop, each participant will experience two sessions of HB as an experiencer, or "breather," and two sessions as a partner, or "sitter". Besides the breathwork experiences and the topics covered (described below), there will be art, music, dancing, film, and integration during the workshop.

To participate in the module it is not necessary to have previous experience in Holotropic Breathwork. It is required to complete a brief confidential medical form. If you wish to continue with the Grof Transpersonal Training, this module is one of the four mandatory required.
