About Holotropic Breathwork

Holotropic Breathwork is one of the most powerful and effective techniques of self-exploration and transformation that has emerged from research into the potential for expanding consciousness over the past 50 years in the field of Transpersonal Psychology. It incorporates elements from the rituals of indigenous and pre-Columbian civilizations, Eastern spiritual practices, and the mystical traditions of the world, as well as modern research into the expanded mapping of consciousness.

The purpose of Holotropic Breathwork is to encourage and assist individuals in delving into the depths of their souls by gaining access to areas before and beyond our traumatic area, our personal divisiveness, and neurotic personality.

The word "Holotropic" indicates the overcoming of internal fragmentation and the sense of separation of the individual from the environment, oneself, and the Whole. It is also a gateway to the spiritual path of unified existence.

The name Holotropic literally means "moving towards wholeness" (from the Greek words "whole" and "turn").

In many ancient traditions, sacred plants and rituals have been used to create holotropic states. In Holotropic Breathwork, individuals enter into these profoundly transforming states of consciousness in a safe environment, solely with the power of their own breath.

This state is activated and directed by the inner therapeutic wisdom of each person, depending on one's readiness, resistance, or availability. The process is non-invasive/non-directional and is fully driven by the individual's internal healing intelligence and authority. The unconscious material that emerges in the foreground is unique to every human being at the specific time and space and has a strong transformational, therapeutic, and unifying effect.

In holotropic states, the soul has the amazing healing ability to choose and bring unconscious content to our awareness, often with a strong emotional charge and with great synchronistic and meaningful value. Holotropic states allow us to gain access to the deeper layers of the soul and to see from a wider, expanded spectrum our life and its meaning. They enable a wide range of unconscious material to come to light: memories related to the person's life (even episodes that have been forgotten or suppressed), physical and sensory memories, physical sensations associated with psychosomatic problems, emotions associated with important experiences, aspects of personal and collective unconscious, karmic memories, cell memories, and memories associated with our birth, shamanic visions, archetypal content, spiritual experiences, etc.

Holotropic Breathwork ™ is a powerful tool for our inner journeys into the areas of the soul, which are beyond time and duality. It is a gateway to the transpersonal dimensions of the Soul, which helps transition the perspective from ego to cosmic consciousness.

Holotropic Breathwork®


Holotropic Breathwork® is a powerful technique for self-healing and self-exploration allowing for greater self-understanding, expansion of self-identity and access to the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. Holotropic Breathwork® comes from the Greek words ‘holos’ (whole) and ‘trepein’ (going to) meaning moving towards wholeness.
