Holotropic Breathwork™ Retreat

The Spirit of Exploration
Holotropic Breathwork™ is a simple yet profound method for expanding our understanding of who we are and what it means to be human. It invites potentially transformative learning about aspects of self that may be unfamiliar or unexplored, the possibility for healing, and the emergence of fresh insight.

This spirit of exploration and self-discovery is at the core of the Academy’s mission: Learning as a practice for awakening. As we ‘wake up,’ our view of life is transformed and we no longer see ourselves or our world in quite the same way. Holotropic Breathwork™ is a method that can evoke this sort of transformative experience.

Stan Grof, the creator of Holotropic Breathwork™, calls it a “Technology of the Sacred.” When we do this work at the Academy, we contextualize it as experiential learning: there is something that we are each in a process of learning that lives uniquely within ourselves.


The experience of the breathwork session is a way to open fully to what is within ourselves that is ready to be explored, whether it is something that needs to be known and healed, or a deep insight, or a feeling to be expressed. We place a strong emphasis on the integration process that follows the breathwork session, supporting participants to recognize what is being learned, and how the learning is happening – what capacity is growing – as well as ways to foster the ongoing learning and integration following the workshop.
