Welcome to connect with your inner healing wisdom in the darkest time of the year. Theme of this workshop is Death as a mirror of life. We want to create a safe space where we can explore together the themes of psychological and physical death in an open and honest way. We will explore from holotropic perspective what is the role of ego-death in personal development, how encountering our own or our close ones' mortality can support our life path in a positive way and what can nature´s cycle in autumn teach us about inner processes. There is space for every kind of emotions and thoughts relating to death in the workshop. Also in breathwork there is space for every kind of experience of life and death, and sometimes during session we can experience for example experience of psychospiritual death and rebirth, or encounter the mortality or death of ourselves or close ones.
Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful method of self-exploration, which helps us to connect more deeply with our inner healing wisdom through breath, music, somatic and emotional processing in a safe and supportive space. During the workshop everyone has the opportunity to surrender to the inner process with their own pace and style, and there is plenty of time for preparation and integration. On Friday we will land softly to the venue, meet the group and do practices related to the theme of the workshop. On Saturday there will be two breathing sessions, in which each participant will be breathing in one session and sitting for the breather-partner in one session. On Sunday we will have time and space for ourselves, and we will offer some techniques and tips for integration.
Workshop takes place in the historical Suikkila mansion in Turku (Satakunnantie 144), 4km from Turku city center with easy bus connection. Accommodation is not included in the price, but there is a possibility to sleep on the floor of the breathing room (15€/night). You can also sleep anywhere else, if you can join the workshop within its schedule. Lunch and dinner are served on Saturday, there will also be snacks and tea/coffee during the workshop.
