Holotropic Breathwork Workshop close to Bratislava, Slovakia, 1-3 Febuary 2019

This 3-day Holotropic Breathwork weekend workshop allows for self-healing and self-exploration as well as accessing the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. During this weekend workshop two breathwork sessions (two as a breather and two as a sitter) will allow you in a very safe setting to access expanded states of consciousness, in which your own wisdom connects with your inner healing and inner transforming power. This healing wisdom guides the experiences towards those aspects which carry a 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 want to expand your consciousness and further explore your spiritual path.

Travel Information

How to get there:

1. you can either use the google maps and put there "Lesna Zahrada" as final destination - it will navigate you right there!


2. From the motorway D1 take the exit to Senec. When approaching Senec, there will be logistic centres on the right, petrol station and then another petrol station on the left right before the roundabout. Continue in direction of Nitra, Sereď, over 2 bridges (1 over the road, the second above the railway). Continue straight until you reach another roundabout and take the first exit (direction Šamorín). After 2,7km (even before the village Hrubý Šúr!) there is a crossroad where you turn right into Kráľová pri Senci /Bodov/, continues 1km straight, keep left, until you reach the new houses. On the right side you’ll see an old blue metal bus stop - turn left right after it! On the right side of the road you’ll see a big green notice on the concrete fence - "JAZDI POMALY” Continue over the creek up a little hill and keep left, then there will be dusty road with fields on both sides, then some horses on the left and some houses on the right and some machines on the left. TURN RIGHT after the last house on the right and go straight on. Pass through a metal gate and you will reach the family farm Lesna Zahrada.
