Music and Transcendence, Spain. With Sitara Blasco, Marc Aixalà and the GTT Staff

Mandatory Module valid for Grof Transpersonal Training in Holotropic Breathwork

In this module we will explore the necessary elements to create of a Holotropic Breathwork session.

We will discuss important aspects of preparation, the necessary components to conduct sessions, paying special attention to music, and the integration. We will listen to a wide variety of music for the different phases of experiences in expanded states of consciousness, immersing ourselves in an exciting and transformative journey through the world of music.

Experientially we will journey through sound and rhythm. Music has always been a vital for creation, as well as a spiritual tool of transformation. It is even said about music, that it is the language of the soul. This is a unique opportunity to learn, first hand, the structure of the music that makes Holotropic Breathwork so special.

The module covers:

1. The creation of the holotropic context.

2. Music in the context of Holotropic Breathwork: history, theory and practice.

3. Use of music in expanded states of consciousness. Detailed explanation of the structure of the music, demonstration of specific pieces.

4. Explanation and demonstration of the relaxation.

5. The sharing group:

  • Philosophy.
  • Challenging situations for the facilitator.

6. Integration: Importance and methods

7. Technical aspects of music: quality and sound equipment.

8. Practical information about conducting workshops: place, prices, promotion, brochures and types of workshops.

9. Facilitator self-care.

In this module the participants have the opportunity to know the practical experience of Holotropic Breathwork. The sessions will be directed by Sitara Blasco, Marc Aixalà, Juanjo Segura and the GTT team. During the six days of the module each participant will have the experience four sessions of Holotropic Breathwork, two as "breather" and two as "sitter". There will also be mandala drawing and integration spaces.

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.
