We are glad to announce a visit of Stanislav Grof, the founder of Holotropic Breathwork™ and world renowned scientist. Stanislav Grof is one of the founders of Transpersonal Psychology, author of numerous books and about 150 articles. Being Professor of Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), Stanislav Grof is heading Holotropic Breathwork and Transpersonal Psychology training programs, he delivers lectures and conducts workshops all over the world. His workshop “Eros and Psyche” will be devoted to the study of human sexuality.
Sexuality is an extremely important biological drive that governs the survival of species and continuation of life on our planet. It is matched in its power only by the self-preservation instinct, the drive that serves the survival of the individual. Sex has a strong influence on human behavior and since Freud’s discovery of the unconscious and its dynamics, it has often seen considered the most powerful motivating force in the psyche.
In this slide-illustrated seminar, we will explore the observations from modern consciousness research that offer revolutionary new insights into the complexity of human sexuality.
These new findings revealed the paramount importance of birth and death as additional motivating forces in the psyche, as yet unrecognized by mainstream psychology and psychiatry. Birth, sex, and death are so deeply interconnected in the unconscious that it is impossible to understand any member of this triad without taking into consideration the other two.
We will examine the perinatal and transpersonal roots of abnormal sexual practices and of sexual violence, archetypal dimensions of sexuality, and transpersonal forms of sex (satanic, oceanic, and tantric). We will also discuss the implications o the new findings for therapeutic practice.
The relationship between spirituality and sexuality will be illustrated by selected slides from sessions of psychedelic therapy and Holotropic Breathwork, alchemy, and the history of witchcraft and satanic practices. We will also explore at some length Tantric science, art, and ritual.
The workshop is designed to provide lectures of Stanislav Grof and 4 Holotropic Breathwork™ sessions where each participant will have 2 sessions as breather and 2 as sitter. The workshop will be held in English and Russian (with consecutive interpretation).
