The Hero's Journey - Exploring the Path to Wholeness

A Holotropic Breathwork Workshop

In its simplest form, the hero’s journey can be described in three stages:

Departure, Initiation and Return
Departure: the hero leaves his home community to go on a quest.
Initiation: the hero faces trials and tribulations until he achieves victory on his quest.
Return: the hero is transformed and shares his wisdom with the world.

Transforming Trauma: Healing Our Deepest Wounds

A Holotropic Breathwork Workshop

MOST OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED SOME FORM OF TRAUMA IN OUR LIFETIME...

Surviving a pandemic, diagnosis and treatment of a medical illness, loss, abuse, addiction, violence, grief, social isolation, mental health challenges.... Trauma has the power to transform.

However, it is some of the most difficult work a person can ever do.

Trauma can impact your body, your mind and your spirit.


Holotropic Breathwork is a journey of moving toward wholeness. In this workshop, we create a safe and supportive setting, with highly trained and experienced Holotropic Breathwork certified facilitators, where you can begin to reconnect, heal and regain connection to your body, yourself and life. Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful experiential breathing process that allows for self-exploration and healing. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter an expanded state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing potential of the breather, or "inner healer", which guides the experience.

This workshop includes four Holotropic Breathwork sessions (two as a breather/two as a sitter), a talk on the history and practice of Holotropic Breathwork, integrative writing practice, earthing (nature-based grounding practice), healing sound journey, creating art altars in nature, evening fire gathering, mandala drawing, 3 nights housing, 9 meals, connection, community and suppor
