Are you ready to have one of the most interesting evenings of your life? Well, you’ve come to the right place!! This event will take place in Venice Beach on Monday, Oct 8th at 7:00pm and will end at 10:00pm. The cost of this event is $25.00 to cover the cost of snacks, etc.
“The mystical experience may just be what it feels like when you deactivate the brain’s default mode network. This can be achieved any number of ways: through psychedelics and meditation…..but perhaps also by means of certain breathing exercises like Holotropic Breathwork” – – Michael Pollan, How To Change Your Mind
You can look forward to a very special evening. At this event, you will find out about Holotropic Breathwork as created by world reknown psychiatrist Dr. Stan Grof (co-creator of Transpersonal Psychology), how it was developed, why it works, etc and also have an actual one hour breathing experience to music. This is not “Holotropic Breathwork” which follows a carefully designed program developed by Dr. Grof which lasts a full day and includes 3 hour breathing sessions, sitters, mandala drawing and share groups but in the one hour breathwork experience we will be using the same type of deeper faster breathing and the same type of music as in the all day workshop and you will get a clear sense of what results could be available to you from a full day Holotropic Breathwork Workshop. Some participants at these intros have reported life altering experiences even from this short, one hour breathing process.
Holotropic Breathwork (Holotropic coming from the Greek “moving towards wholeness”) is a healing modality that was developed by Dr Stan Grof to allow participants to experience and get the benefits of the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness (that he discovered through his work with LSD psychotherapy) through the use of holotropic breathing, creative self-expression, and a specially designed three hour musical journey. Experiences range from a) feeling more empowered to create the life you have always dreamed about to b) releasing trauma from the past that then allows you to more fully and joyfully experience your life to c) getting more clarity in regards to your path in life or in regards to issues you are dealing with in your life right now to d) feeling a profound sense of inter-connection to nature and the world to e) getting an expanded feeling of compassion and love for yourself and others.
