Rachel, born (1981) and raised in Belgium, experienced Holotropic Breathwork for the first time in 2005 and from then on it has become an important part of her life. She studied Clinical Psychology and later obtained a second Master in Transpersonal Psychology and Consciousness Studies. In August 2016, she accomplished the Grof Transpersonal Training and became a facilitator in Holotropic Breathwork. She lives in Berlin and Belgium. Self-awareness and spiritual growth is very important to her. She is a passionate 5 Rhythms dancer and she has experienced that expanded holotropic states of consciousness carry the potential for healing and self-fulfilment.
A Grof Transpersonal Training module - Understanding spiritual emergency is one of the major contributions of the holotropic perspective. Whether you are a professional or a layperson, someone interested in working with or supporting people in transformational crises, or primarily in your own growth, the module offers a rich experience and valuable information. In addition to differentiating between psychosis and spiritual emergency, we’ll also explore the intensely practical aspects of who, in these kinds of crises, can benefit from Holotropic Breathwork® and how best to work with them in their emergencies. This workshop includes a discussion of the concept of spiritual emergency, its manifestations and forms, historical and anthropological perspectives, treatment strategies and work with family and friends.
