Nights of Transformation


Holotropic Breathwork® Facilitator (in training), Psychological Counselor (in training), Organiser, Philosopher of Cognitive Science, Science Administrator, Business Coach, and Management Consultant. Peter lives in Vienna, Austria, with his wife, three children, and a dog.

Peter has been devoted to exploring techniques and practices for healing and cultivating the mind and soul for over three decades.

Initially trained as an engineer in biomedical technology, Peter's journey began with working with socially vulnerable children and persons with particular mental abilities and needs. Resonating with the countless possibilities of experiencing life, he moved into the professional arts to experiment with extended states of consciousness through mind machines and floating tanks, which he embedded in his works as a sound artist.

Curiosity, wonder, and the continuous search for beauty, truth, and meaning led him to study and graduate in philosophy and cognitive science. He continues his philosophical work by exploring the relations and interactions of the psyche (greek for mind and soul) and techne (Greek for art or craft) in self-healing and self-cultivation.

After a fulfilling career as an international cultural manager jetting worldwide, Peter settled as the administrative director of a cognitive science research unit at the University of Vienna. Besides, he is a self-employed business coach and management consultant.

In 2023, after seven years of practice and training in Holotropic Breathwork®, Peter has overcome a spiritual emergency by addressing multiple deeply buried traumatic experiences, learned to cope with neurodiversity, and finally became a certified Holotropic Breathwork® facilitator. In 2019 he began practicing Zen to continue his spiritual development. In addition, he undergoes multi-annual training for Psychological Counseling that provides him a trade license for the organization of Holotripic Breatwork@ workshops and the methodological toolset from various psychotherapeutic traditions for integrating the holotropic experience into daily life.

Peter is passionate about supporting participants in Holotropic Breathwork® workshops in finding trust in their processes and inner healers by providing a nurturing, inspiring environment and holding the space for their path toward self-discovery, healing, and growth. He is available as a facilitator for workshop organizers and offers events in the context of Arts and Meditation.

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.
