Caledonian Holotropic invites you to The Kingdom of Fife in Scotland
08 November 2019 - 10 November 2019 @ The Kingdom of Fife in Scotland

Holotropic Breathwork was developed by Czech-born psychiatrist Dr. Stanislav Grof & his late wife Christina as a substance-free successor to his LSD based research and Psychedelic therapy in the 60’s and 70’s. He is one of the founders of Transpersonal Psychology.

Stan recorded time and time again the profound healing that could come about when his subjects returned from expanded states of consciousness. Often, there came from within a deeper understanding of emotional and behavioural patterns.

Many people report that journeying into expanded states of consciousness with Holotropic Breathwork has been instrumental in helping them to connect with who and what they truly are. They get in touch with what their life is about, bringing a stronger sense of purpose, a more confident way of being in the world and a deeper sense of inner peace.

Holotropic Breathwork can be:
  • a powerful method of personal transformation and healing
  • an insightful personal enquiry tool to know thyself – light & shadow
  • a self-empowering way (because you do the work) to re-integrate fragmented parts of ourselves that may have been split off through guilt, shame, fear anger, sadness over years of conditioning by significant others
  • a highly experiential complimentary therapeutic technology to psychotherapy
  • used to access ideas and inspiration from the transpersonal realm to improve an individual’s way of being in the world for not only the wounded but for the artist or scientist or student or inventor. The dreamlike images that can be presented in expanded states of consciousness often contain solutions to questions on our minds.
  • a deep self-care approach for the healing and helping professional
  • an evidenced based tool that can get to the root of and heal addiction and depression
  • supportive in the healing of previous emotional or physical trauma; in reducing the symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress; in emotional expression & release and for creative inspiration.

Expanded states of consciousness are entered by a combination of very simple means – slightly accelerated breathing, evocative music, and a technique of bodywork that helps to release residual bio-energetic and emotional blocks.

A breather is supported by a sitter and facilitators. Sessions last for about three hours with sharing and integration afterwards.
