Prerequisites for the module - you need to have completed the Bodywork module and have at least one experience as an apprentice in a module or workshop to navigate through this module well. Working as an apprentice is possible from the 5th module in workshops with a certified facilitator and from the 6th module in a training module. This provides you with security and a confident integration into the work as a facilitator without overwhelming yourself.

In this module, we will explore: - The power of contact; where and how. - Sharing the experiential field of the breather. - The intermittent nature of the process. - The challenge of doing not doing. - Understanding and supporting different kinds of processes. This module involves intense practice of facilitation with direct advice from experienced practitioners and shadow guidance to improve your presence and skills. To maximize your training, in the breathwork sessions sitters will facilitate breathers, and the staff will support you if needed. There will be space for dialogue, questions, and answers to discuss situations and gain confidence in your facilitation. To assist it is indispensable to have done the mandatory module The Power Within (“the Bodywork module”) to have experience as a breather/sitter and some facilitation skills.

The unique way of accompanying processes in Holotropic Breathwork grew from the early groundbreaking work with psychedelics. It has evolved and become a model for other settings in expanded states of consciousness. Facilitating HB usually involves a kind of contact and closeness that differentiates it from other contexts and takes time to learn it properly. It is a distinctive way of supporting processes that would require from the facilitator presence, personal work, knowledge, and a lot of practice.

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.


GTT is a program for experiencing and studying Holotropic Breathwork® and the transpersonal perspective. It is a two-track program that can be used either to become a certified practitioner or simply to experience this practice in a more in-depth format. It is the best way to spend time with HB co-developer and one of the founders of transpersonal psychology, Stanislav Grof. Although semi-retired, Stan still teaches at some of the six-day training workshops, also called modules.
