This module is an exciting and transformative journey through the world of music. Sound and rhythm have always been vital creative and spiritual tools for transformation. Music has even been called the language of the soul. This is a special opportunity to learn first-hand the music structure that defines Holotropic Breathwork in such a special way.
About the Workshop
This workshop is an exciting and transformative journey through the world of music. Sound and rhythm have always been vital creative and spiritual tools for transformation. Music has even been called the language of the soul. This is a special opportunity to learn first hand the role music plays in the healing potential of Holotropic Breathwork. In addition we will explore strategies for integrating the Holotropic perspective as a tool for everyday living.
- 1) The role of music as a tool for transformation
- 2) How to create a Holotropic Breathwork music set
- 3) Group work: history, theory, practice andchallenges
- 4) COEX Systems: how to work with multi-level patterns
- 5) Facilitatorself-care
- 6) Running your own workshops: venue, pricing andmarketing
This six-day workshop includes four Holotropic Breathwork sessions, as well as art, music, group and integration work.
Participants will have the opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork, a powerful approach to self-exploration, transformation, and healing that combines breathing, evocative music, and release work to explore the deeper dimensions of the psyche. This workshop will be useful to both laypersons and professionals seeking a more authentic and fulfilling lifestyle. This will be a very experiential workshop. Besides the breathwork itself, all of the teaching is geared to participants having a direct experience of their own journey. We will work with music, film and ritual practice to engage the Holotropic principles in a very personal, embodied way.
The workshop is a full time, live-in intensive, designed for anyone with a deep interest in Holotropic BreathworkTM and Transpersonal Psychology. It may be credited towards the seven modules in the Grof Transpersonal Training Training program for certification as a Holotropic Breathwork Practitioner. This is also a valuable experience for those people who do not wish to become a practitioner. Included in the module will be a combination of personal experience with Holotropic Breathwork, facilitation of others on a one to one basis, group sharing and other experiential practices.
No prior experience required
No prior Holotropic Breathwork experience is needed to attend this event. It is not necessary to be in the training program to attend and those new to Holotropic Breathwork are welcome; the workshop is open to anyone interested in the topic and in doing their own deep inner work. For those in, or interested in, the practitioner training, this workshop counts as a mandatory module toward certification and may be applied retroactively for those who do decide to enter the training program for certification in Holotropic Breathwork.
