What is Holotropic Breathwork?
Holotropic Breathwork is a simple yet powerful technique
for self-exploration, transformation and healing based
on combined insights from modern consciousness research,
depth psychology and various spiritual practices. The
method activates non-ordinary states of consciousness
which mobilizes the spontaneous healing potential of the
psyche. Sustained breathing, evocative music, focussed
energy work and mandala drawing are components of this
holotropic journey. “Holotropic” literally means ‘moving
At the heart of Holotropic Breathwork is a belief that
we hold within us the healing and inner resources that
we need to live fully and deeply, to heal our wounds and
to rise to our higher selves. Honouring that “the healer
is within”, this work trusts, respects, and supports
each person’s unique experience.
Over the centuries, in many different cultures, the
breath has been used to access inner resources, whether
those resources are needed for healing, recovery,
personal exploration or enhancing one’s creativity.
Holotropic breathwork unites the power of breath with
the power of witness - all facilitated by leaders
