THE HOLOTROPIC PRACTICUM: Boosting your facilitation skills. BY SITARA BLASCO

Holotropic Practicum: boosting your facilitation skills.

By Sitara Blasco, with Juanjo Segura, Jean Farrell, Marc Aixalà and Jasmina Hrapovic

The aim of this new optional module is to deepen the experience of Holotropic facilitation in Expanded States of Consciousness (ESC).

It is based on the knowledge learned in "The Power Within" (Bodywork module) and its purpose is taking the skills of the facilitator to a higher level.

This module is open to anyone interested in Holotropic Breathwork, but is especially oriented towards those who are already facilitating or who intend to become HB facilitators in the future.

Topics in this module:

  • Learning the “language” of the processes
  • Significant differences in the intervention during the session and the closure
  • Understanding the curve and flow of experience
  • The process as the main thread of facilitation
  • Focused energy release work: beyond the Bodywork
  • The keys to intensification
  • Voice, words and silences
  • Specific exercises to improve the facilitation
  • "Leading" a process and facilitating as a team
  • Deepening in the challenges: dissociation experiences, severe trauma and abuse, demonic, deep 2nd matrix, choking, others.
  • The Inner Healer of the facilitator allies with the Inner Healer of the breather
  • Sharing the same field of experience: promises and pitfalls
  • Specific questions from participants

During the module, each participant will experience two sessions of HB as an experiencer, or "breather," and two sessions as a partner, or "sitter", lead by Sitara Blasco, Juanjo Segura and GTT staff. Besides the breathwork experiences and the topics covered, there will be mandala drawing and integration time.

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 an optative one.
