Holotropic Breathwork™ A revolutionary practice of self-empowerment based on world traditional wisdom amd consciousness research.
GROF TRANSPERSONAL TRAINING
Founded by Stanislav and Christina Grof in 1989, Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) is an international organization that offers workshops and training in Holotropic Breathwork and the holotropic perspective. In 1998, the rights to Grof Transpersonal Training and the term “Holotropic Breathwork” were purchased by Tav and Cary Sparks, following their many years of working closely with the Grofs.
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.
Stan Grof, M.D., Ph.D., the creator of Holotropic Breathwork and co-founder of Transpersonal Psychology has made major contributions to the fields of psychiatry, psychology and the study of non-ordinary states of consciousness. Holotropic Breathwork seminars are now attended by tens of thousands of people around the world.

Breathwork is important in many spiritual systems.
Breathwork is used in labour and delivery.
Breathwork is used to control anxiety in therapy and for medical procedures.
Prolonged connected breaths strengthen awareness of our normally repressed connections to self others, and the inner healer"
