Event Details

This 3,5-day, experiential Double Holotropic Breathwork workshop allows for self-healing and self-exploration as well as accessing the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. During the workshop, four breathwork sessions (two as a breather and two as a sitter) will allow you, in a very safe setting, to access an expanded state of consciousness, in which your own wisdom connects with your inner healing and transforming power. This healing wisdom guides the experience towards those aspects which carry an emotional charge, and are ready to be processed or integrated.


Holotropic Breathwork might be of interest if:

∙ you are seeking a more experiential approach to healing, one that goes beyond talk therapy

∙ you are experiencing a major life crisis and seeking deep wisdom and insights

∙ you want to release unresolved issues from the past

∙ you want to understand the emotional roots of a persistent physical/psychosomatic condition

∙ you are yearning for deeper insight into the nature of reality and advancement on your spiritual path

∙ you want to facilitate the integration of a difficult psychedelic session

∙ you have a feeling of an uninterestingly lived life

∙ you are involved in the GTT program

We will start on Thursday at 17:00, and finish on Sunday around 13:00.
