INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS OF HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK
An individual session lasts about 4 to 5 hours, and has the same format as a group:
Check in, breathwork, mandala drawing and integration. A week after the session we have a 30 minute integration call to follow up. Additional integration sessions can be provided at an extra cost, if client feels the need to do more focused attention work to the interface of expanded states of consciousness work and embodying it in our daily lives.
If this is your first time doing Holotropic Breathwork, I will send you the link to a couple of articles and a video so you can be familiar with the foundation of this work. Also at the beginning of your first session we will have additional time for logistical questions and checking in.
Individual sessions take place in a beautiful natural setting location.
PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL / CREATIVE / SOMATIC INTEGRATION SESSIONS INTEGRATION is a crucial component of Holotropic Breathwork and any other work with expanded states of consciousness. I believe that integration is the most important part of the process, it allows us to embody and apply to our daily lives, the insights and lessons learned while doing the depth exploratory work.
INTEGRATION SESSIONS are designed to support the integration process after work with expanded states of consciousness. These sessions can involve astrological insight, the expressive arts, ceremonial and altar practices, work with the natural world and embodied awareness, depending on what tools seem a better fit at a particular time. Together we can create a bundle of deepening and integrative offerings to support your breathwork journey.
Some people like to schedule a SESSION one week before their session in PREPARATION for their journey, and/or an INTEGRATION SESSION(S) after their breathwork experience to process, embody and anchor their experience. Others choose a number of sessions as part of their ongoing exploration with the work.
- Individual sessions $300 (Includes integration phone session one week after)
- Two friend individual session $400 for two people
- 90 minute creative/psycho-spiritual integration sessions: $120
- 60 minute creative/psycho-spiritual integration session: $100
ABOUT HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK
The Grof's offer a comprehensive vision of mental health and of human growth potential that extends the range of psychology dimensions of the perinatal, the transpersonal, the transcultural and mystical. Their work organically incorporates the indigenous wisdom of shamanism and the natural world, the cultural and historical basis of consciousness, and the far reaching breadth of modern physics and systems theory. On it, the personal and the universal are equally valued, the physical and the biographical, the cultural, evolutionary, and spiritual dimensions of our humanity are included
