Intro to Transpersonal Breathwork
Friday, August 28th -- 5pm-8pm @ Sacred Mountain Studio -- 215 College Street, 3rd floor.
Come explore the potential healing benefit of breathwork, and the how it can foster self-exploration, self-discovery, and wholeness in one’s life. This introduction workshop is great for anyone completely new to breathwork, and for people with past experience. This is also a great way to explore breathwork without having to dedicate your time to a full day or weekend -- the typical length of a full breathwork workshop. Bring a friend along, and explore the power of breath.
Transpersonal Breathwork is a breathing technique that can foster a cathartic re-experience of one’s biographical history, birth process, and experiences of archetypal and cosmic nature. The experience of breathwork can be cathartic in nature, releasing stored physical or emotional energy, or it can be extremely calming and relaxing. There are a wide variety of experiences one can experience, but many of these experiences, despite their nature, can help one create meaning and wholeness in life. The theory and technique of Transpersonal Breathwork stems directly from Stan and Christina Grof’s Holotropic Breathwork. The five components of breathwork are; intensified breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, group process, and expressive art.
This workshop will explore a brief history of Stan Grof’s theories, and the history of Holotropic Breathwork. It will also include a “mini” breathwork session -- around 30-45 minutes long. Typical breathwork sessions last anywhere from 2-3 hours.
