Holotropic Breathwork® & Nature Immersion Workshop: A journey into expanded states of consciousness and rewilding in nature

With Dr. Tom Francescott, Dr. Laurane McGlynn and Jeffrey Warren

December 3 - 6, 2023

We invite you to a rare opportunity to join Dr. Laurane McGlynn and Dr. Tom Francescott and experience the remarkable healing potential and therapeutic benefits of Holotropic Breathwork®. Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful experiential breathing process that allows for 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 an expanded state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing potential of the breather, or “inner healer”, which guides the experience.

In this double breathwork workshop, each person will experience four Holotropic Breathwork® sessions (two as a breather/two as a sitter) along with forest bathing, sound healing, nature-based practices, creating art altars in nature and an evening community fire gathering. Whether you are new to HB or highly experienced, this workshop can help you reconnect with your own inner healing wisdom. This workshop is open to new breathers, experienced breathers, those in the GTT HB facilitator training, or those simply interested in experiencing Holotropic Breathwork. This work is of value to those interested in inner exploration, self-discovery, connection to self and others and spiritual awareness.

For anyone in a psychedelic-assisted therapy training program, this workshop may fulfill your requirement for practical experience sitting for others in expanded states of consciousness.
