This module is an exciting and transformative journey through the world of music. Sound and rhythm have always been vital creative and spiritual tools for transformation. Music has even been called the language of the soul. This is a special opportunity to learn first-hand the music structure that defines Holotropic Breathwork in such a special way.

3) Holotropic group work: it’s history, theory and practice, discussion of common group experiences and challenging situations;

5) demonstration of relaxation
