Lotte with Stan Grof at Holotropic Breathwork Workshop in the Andes, Chile, 2015
Born with a passion to learn and grow, Lotte has worked in the areas of health, healing and spirituality for many years. However when she came across Breathwork, she says that:
“It changed my life. Breathwork is a powerful opportunity to be present with yourself, your being, body, soul, spirit, and psyche, providing the opportunity for an authentic inner experience to unfold…
Accessing deeply held parts of ourselves, Holotropic Breathwork™ invites us to go on a journey with our own inner guiding intelligence, moving us toward the wisdom and wholeness, that I believe is available to us all.”
Lotte is a certified Holotropic Breathwork Facilitator with Grof Transpersonal Training (USA)
Holotropic Breathwork™ is a technique of self-exploration that utilizes the healing power of deep breathing, evocative music, focused bodywork, and mandala drawing to enter holotropic “moving toward wholeness” states of consciousness. Following in the tradition of the shamanic practices, rites of passage and mystery religions of preindustrial and non-Western cultures, we create a supportive and caring space in which participants’ own inner healer can select the most relevant material and bring it up for processing. These sessions are helpful for people seeking relief from physical tension or emotional pain, an opening of creative channels, or a deepened connection with the inner Divine.
An Individual session lasts about 3 to 4 hours and has the same set up as HB groups: First we check in then Breathwork session, manadala drawing and integration. I will follow up with a phone call after your session (included in cost)
Using this completely natural method, Holotropic Breathwork™ can be a great support for people in releasing emotional or physical blocks and unfinished business that is presently in need of healing.
A one day Holotropic Breathwork™ workshop starts with an introduction talk the night before the workshop. This is a wonderful way to learn more about this healing work as well as preparation before the workshop. Group sessions are a helpful and powerful way to connect with your inner healer and psyche. And they are great value. A whole day is the same cost – or cheaper – than an individual session. Breathwork combines deep breathing, evocative music and focused, releasing bodywork.
Group sessions are offered in a variety of contexts including workshops and retreats. Group Breathwork includes an introductory talk, a Breathwork session one as a breather and one as a sitter, integration and sharing time. Participants are also invited after their breathwork session and part of the integration to do a mandala drawing and/or journaling afterward.
We ask for a commitment to yourself and the group to stay for the full lenght of the workshop as this supports the depth of these experinces.
The group setting is a powerful environment for healing, growth, understanding and self-acceptance, as well as bonding with others through group sharing. Those who attend groups have often found it to be a heart-opening and empowering experience to witness others’ processes and to see that they are not alone in their healing journey. Sharing the Breathwork experience aids integration and can bring greater perspective and acceptance. Heightened states of clarity, peace of mind, forgiveness and gratitude are common following group Breathwork sessions.
