What we're about

The purpose of this group is to spread the word about Holotropic Breathwork groups to a larger number of people, as well as share when the different groups are happening. With this group I want to provide a space for those curious and new to the work, to experience it for the first time in a supportive and nourishing environment as per developed by Stanislav Grof. As well as those who have practiced it for some time, have a place and a community to come back to.

PLEASE NOTE that if you sign up for one of the meet ups here, for your complete registration you need to contact Mireya at mireyaam@gmail.com

I have found through the years, that this work is a wonderful way of accessing deep parts within us; release the pressures from daily life; expand our awareness of ourselves, those around us and the cosmos we are part of; as well as have a permissive and nourishing space that can allow the healing intelligence within our psyche to emerge from inside rather than directed by the outside.

Holotropic Breathwork is a method of using expanded states of awareness for self exploration, healing and personal transformation. It was developed by Dr. Stanislav and Christina Grof, leading pioneers in the field of transpersonal psychology. It is based on insights from various spiritual practices, modern consciousness research, and depth psychology. An experiential approach to accessing the inner healing wisdom within each individual.

HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK TM combines breathing, evocative music, focused release bodywork, mandala drawing and group sharing. By activating the unconscious and mobilizing blocked energies, this work gives us access to all levels of human experience and activates the spontaneous healing potential of the psyche.

This work is of value to those interested in the journey of inner exploration, self-discovery and spiritual awareness. It is a wonderful adjunct to psychotherapy and other forms of inner work, as well as a powerful method of self-care for helping professionals. Our intention in the workshop is to create a safe and supportive environment in which each participant can surrender fully to the sensations, feelings or experiences that come up during the session.

I facilitate groups in the Oakland Hills in a one day format, as well as retreats in a beautiful setting in California or in Mexico. I can also travel to your area if you would like to organize a group.

On FRIDAY EVENING before every one day Holotropic Breathwork workshop there is an FREE introductory talk for all new participants in preparation for the work, as well as for the general public interested in hearing about this work, with no commitment to attend the workshop (Please RSVP for this talk at 415.336.13.50)

CREATIVE INTEGRATION is a process of using the expressive arts, somatic awareness, ritual and when appropriate the astrological chart. As a way of deepening and integrating the material that comes out of the work with expanded states of consciousness into our daily lives. For those who request them, Mireya offers creative integration sessions after the workshops to support an ongoing integration process.
