About the Event

Offers two holotropic sessions and two “sitting” experiences for each participant and a lot of Zen :))

During the workshop, you can explore the depths of your psyche usingHolotropic Breathwork®, a technique developed bydr. Stanislav GrofandChristina Grof.  This well-defined protocol uses breathing, assistive bodywork, and evocative music in a group setting to access deeper states of awareness and consciousness. The safe space encourages participants to surrender to their process and the guidance of their inner healer to explore their  inner world.

TheHolotropic Breathwork®experience is complemented by traditionZazenfor integration each morning and evening. This simple yet profound form  of meditation has been practiced for centuries in Zen Buddhism to

cultivate self-awareness, peace, and presence. The practice involves session-length sitting upright and focusing on the breath, alternating with indoors and  outdoorsKinhin,  a form of walking meditation, chanting, and dharma talks. Participants  will learn posture, breathing, and how to sit, let go of distracting  thoughts and emotions, and have the possibility for individual consultations with the teacher.

This approximate module/sesshin-length  retreat offers a nurturing and supportive environment for anyone seeking personal growth and transformation. It includes four breathwork sessions, experienced twice as a breather and twice as a sitter.  by each participant alternated with Zen Meditation. Whether you are dealing with past traumas, seeking greater self-awareness, or looking  to  deepen your spiritual practice, this workshop will help you on your journey to overcome blockages and build a practice for integration.
