ABOUT HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK
"The Grof's offer a comprehensive vision of mental health and of human growth potential that extends the range of psychology dimensions of the perinatal, the transpersonal, the transcultural and mystical. Their work organically incorporates the indigenous wisdom of shamanism and the natural world, the cultural and historical basis of consciousness, and the far reaching breadth of modern physics and systems theory. On it, the personal and the universal are equally valued, the physical and the biographical, the cultural, evolutionary,
and spiritual dimensions of our humanity are included" Jack Kornfield
WHAT IS HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK?
(From The Holotropic Breathwork Facilitator Manual by Kylea Taylor, p.9)
"Holotropic Breathwork is an elegantly simple, minimalist ritual using elements that support the healing with non-ordinary states of consciousness with protection, permission, and connection.
Breathwork invites non ordinary/expanded states of consciousness.
Breathwork is important in many spiritual systems.
Breathwork is used in labor and delivery.
Breathwork is used to control anxiety in therapy and for medical procedures.
Prolonged connected breaths strengthen awareness of our normally repressed connections to self others, and the inner healer".
