Holotropic Breathwork Weekend Workshop

November 1-3, 2013
Kirkridge Retreat Center, Bangor, PA
Nestled in the beautiful Pocono mountains, Kirkridge Retreat Center offers a peaceful setting for deep transformation and healing.
Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful experiential process that allows deep 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 a non-ordinary state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the breather’s psyche which guides the experience.

The breathwork practice combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a supported group setting. Within the group, people work in pairs and alternate in the roles of breather and sitter. The facilitators hold space, offer bodywork and allow the breathers’ inner healing intelligence to guide the process. Mandala drawing and group sharing are also part of the breathwork experience to help integrate the process. The word “Holotropic” means moving toward wholeness.
Cost: $405 – Shared room, double occupancy $450 – Private room (very limited availability)*
*Price includes weekend workshop, housing and all meals.
