Holotropic Breathwork™ Retreat

The Spirit of Exploration
Holotropic Breathwork™ offers a way to experience one’s self through perspectives that are uncommon in our everyday awareness. It invites discovery and exploration of our internal territory—unfamiliar aspects and parts of our selves —in a way that is new, fresh and inviting of new insight, awareness and possibility.

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-GrofStan 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.
