Holotropic Breathwork and meditation practice/Bratislava - Slovakia/April 6th-7th

The Holotropic Breathwork™ as we know it today was being formed by the observations and the research of the healing and transformative potential of altered states of consciousness in the various contexts – in the rituals of the aboriginal cultures, in the practice of the eastern mystics, or in the therapeutic setting with the substances. The HB practice became alive in the times when Stanislav and Christina Grof were searching for the means how to mediate this potential in the current cultural setting.
Holotropic Breathwork is the connection of the use of breath, evocative music and the bodywork in the supportive and safe setting. Through the observation of the inner processes in the holotropic breathwork we can expand the consciousness, connect with the inner wisdom, the power within, and expand the map of the inner worlds with the new qualities of cognition. We are offered to see new perspective to the reality and insights into the situations of the daily life. It is the healing process for the individual as well as for the community and the whole social system from within.

Enriching the holotropic approach with the somatic meditative approachis offering the different possibilities to open to and work with the process "on the mattrace" and at the same time can offer the ways of integration through the body after the workshop of HB. We not only learn the art of self-discovery (the reality of life/death experiences) and expand our possibilieties, but also learn how to cultivate the energies afterwards.

Holotropic Breathwork™ can be the approach suitable for the person who:
*looks for the way to heal through her/his own experience
*experiences psycho-spiritual challenges and looks for the better understanding and insights into it
*wants to release unfinished or unresolved traumas from the past
*wants to understand emocional roots of his/her physical or mental problems
*wants to expand the consciousness and keep getting to know the spiritual path
*is curious who he/she really is

Saturday: the introduction into Transpersonal Psychology and Holotropic Breathwork, preparatory meditation practice, firts session -we take part in two HB sessions (once as breather, once as a sitter)
Sunday: Second session, sharing and learning circle, continuation of the integration and selfcare time. We finish the workshop around 16.

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.
