San Francisco Bay Area Holotropic Breathwork
“Holotropic Breathwork is among the deepest and most profoundly comprehensive work of the Spirit available today” - Jack Kornfield, Co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center
Holotropic Breathwork was developed by Stanislav Grof M.D. and Christina Grof, two leading pioneers in the field of Transpersonal Psychology. The word “holotropic” (from the Greek words “holos” and “trepein”) can be described as the movement toward wholeness.
Holotropic Breathwork sessions use accelerated breathing and a dynamic musical journey as a method of entering into a non-ordinary state of consciousness. A natural healing process is then activated within the psyche which allows for the emergence of one's own “inner healing intelligence” to guide the session. Facilitators offer support and energy-release bodywork as needed. Mandala drawing & group sharing are used in the integration process after the breathing session. Holotropic Breathwork is of value to anyone that is interested in self-exploration, self-transformation, healing and spiritual awareness.
