Holotropic Breathwork

What is Holotropic Breathwork?

Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful self-healing breathing technique developed by Dr. Stanislov and Christina Grof.  Through the use of your breath and deep evocative music and focused energy releasing bodywork, your journey will allow you to access non - ordinary states of consciousness. In these expanded states of awareness your “inner healer” has the ability to access the areas in your cellular memory where healing is needed.  Healing is personal to each individual and can happen from the biological (since birth) or the intrauterine (birthing experience) or through the transpersonal (spiritual realms).  Holotropic breathwork means ‘moving towards wholeness’. It is a deeply transformative healing modality.
