Grof Transpersonal Training: A worldwide community committed to transformation through Holotropic Breathwork™
Holotropic Breathwork™ is a a psychospiritual experiential method developed by Stan and Christina Grof that is based on these new principles. Holotropic Breathwork™ utilizes the healing power of deep breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, and mandala drawing to enter holotropic "moving toward wholeness" states of consciousness.
Following in the tradition of the shamanic practices, rites of passage and mystery religions of preindustrial and non-Western cultures, we create a supportive and caring space in which participants' own inner healer can select the most relevant material and bring it up for processing. These sessions are helpful for people seeking relief from physical tension or emotional pain, an opening of creative channels, or a deepened connection with the inner Divine.
Stan Grof, M.D., Ph.D., the creator of Holotropic Breathwork and co-founder of Transpersonal Psychology has made major contributions to the fields of psychiatry and psychology and the study of non-ordinary states of consciousness. Holotropic Breathwork breathing workshops and seminars are now attended by tens of thousands of people around the world.
The process itself uses very simple means: it combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a special set and setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing the seeker a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for that particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.
