During this afternoon of holo-sonic breathwork, we will work with breath and sound to support a shift in energetic and psychological states.

Breath and Sound are powerful tools for self-exploration, transformation and healing. Our breath is intimately connected to our “life essence”, our energy and our spirit. Working with breath and sound can support a shift in energetic and psychological states in order to bring a greater sense of coherence, wholeness and harmony.

Our Holo-Sonic journey will follow a sequence of steps:

  • After a brief introduction, we will tune in to our intentions
    Sounding and toning will begin vibrational opening in the body and psyche
  • Our journey will continue as we explore a very simple and powerful breathing technique that is derived from Grof Holotropic Breathwork
    Harmonically rich soundscapes of Gongs and Singing Bowls and other sound healing instruments will help to clear, open and balance the vibrational field of body, mind and spirit.
  • Our journey will complete with a closing circle and time for integration.
