If you are interested in self-exploration, come join us for an inner breathwork experience, a time for inner exploration, self-reflection, and an opportunity to meet like-minded people.
Located in a unique setting in Sintra, Lisbon.
This 4-day residential workshop offers a hands-on experience of Holotropic Breathwork®, which enables participants to engage in self-healing and self-exploration. Holotropic Breathwork®, is a path of self-discovery and inner growth. Developed by psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, a world reference in Transpersonal Psychology, and his wife Christina Grof, from the result of extensive clinical research in psychiatric and psychotherapeutic contexts. Through intensified breathing and evocative music, an altered state of consciousness is reached, which takes you on a journey into your inner being. It also provides an opportunity to delve into the underlying causes of emotional and psychosomatic challenges that individuals may be facing.
Throughout the workshop, participants will engage in four breathwork sessions, two as a breather and two as a sitter. These sessions will take place in a very safe and supported environment and aims to facilitate an expanded state of consciousness. This enhanced state of awareness will enable individuals to tap into their own healing wisdom and transformative abilities. This healing intelligence directs the experience towards the elements that have an emotional intensity that are ready to be processed and integrated.
No prior knowledge is necessary. The workshop will be held in English.
Arrival is between 4pm and 7pm on Thursday 22 February, and close on Sunday in the afternoon around 2 pm.

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.
