In this retreat, we will experientially inhabit and exemplify the theme of integration through the vehicles of expressive arts, altar and sacred space creation, time in nature, context setting through Holotropic theory, slowing down and contemplation. We will also have time in community and for discussion.
"INTEGRATION" is a vital component of Holotropic Breathwork practice, as well as any other work in expanded states of consciousness. We are often reminded that preparation, session & integration are all necessary components of any complete transformational experience. Exploration with Holotropic states has impact on the totality of our being and our lives on physical, mental, emotional, environmental and spiritual levels. Giving attention to INTEGRATION offers the potential to enrich our life experience by allowing us to digest, embody and apply to our daily lives the insights and lessons learned while doing in-depth exploratory work. We will create a safe, supportive, sacred, contemplative, and playful container, that will invite spaciousness for absorbing, being with, and processing what occurs before, during and after Holotropic sessions. The week will be highly experiential and offers valuable tools to support the integration of your personal Holotropic practice. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for facilitators and any seekers, and offers exciting, creative ways to support groups and individuals through the integration process. In addition, there will be four Holotropic Breathwork sessions, two as a 'breather' and two as a 'sitter', along with valuable time for group sharing.
No previous artistic or creative experience is necessary for this module, all are welcome!
