About the team
The expedition will be led by Irena Antolic, Magdalena Simeckova, Pavel Sevcik and other facilitators according to the size of the group.
Throughout all of her professional life, Irena has been involved in human development, personal growth and transformation; both in the organizational context and personal therapy work. Her main field of interest is Transpersonal Psychology and work in holotropic (enhanced) states of consciousness. As a certified GTT facilitator, she is passionately involved in Holotropic Breathwork™ , and is one of the organizers of Grof Transpersonal Training in Europe (GTT). Based on a personal experience of healing her own deepest wounds, as well as witnessing deep transformation and healing in other people, she recognizes Holotropic Breathwork™ as the deepest and the most complete method of transformation that she knows of. She works with clients all over Europe. When she doesn’t travel, she lives in Zagreb, Croatia.
Since I first experienced Holotropic Breathwork in 1999 holotropic approach has become integral part of my personal and professional life. I became certified Holotropic Breathwork practitioner in 2011 and I co-organise training modules in Czech Republic with Grof Transpersonal Training. Yet animals, especially dogs, are another passion of my life. By bringing mind, body and the soul in alignment, incorporating holotropic mindset I build a bridge between human and animal worlds, as I run dog training centre focusing on nonviolent, compassionate dog training and canine and human communication. As I experienced or/and became trained in native american tradition, shamanic journey, body oriented psychotherapy, dance and meditation, my heart and passion still stays with the breathwork.
Pavel Sevcik The holotropic perspective is my big passion. I’ve spent years on a holotropic journey from the 90′, especially with Holotropic Breathwork. In 2015 I attended Grof Transpersonal Training program for professionally trained facilitators. In the past years I have met holotropic states of consciousness through various techniques and traditions, so I had the opportunity to compare and confirm the experiences. I have seen the red line going through various cultures and traditions. I can say the Holotropic Breathwork is rediscovered essence of ancient knowledge, reformulated for this age. My experiences led me to more truthful living of my live, with more love and passion. I wish the same to other people.
