HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK & CREATUAL DESIGN
April 28, 2023 4:00 pm CET | Berlin, Germany
Breath IN – Take in
Breath OUT – Let it out
Feel inspired to create your own solution ritual!
We often feel stuck in our lives: When pain and fear are dominating us. When unfulfilled wishes trouble our sleep. When we hope to find the connections we have lost. When we are longing to receive the love we lack. Are you looking to feel lighter and more alive? Searching to put the puzzle pieces together and live a more fulfilled life?
Are you ready to work with your emotions – to face the tensions and pain in your mind and body, travelling between past, present and future – you will learn to break your patterns and reconnect with yourself and the world around you.
Take part in a powerful journey, guiding and supporting you in exploring and discovering parts of your deeper self through Holotropic Breathwork. Then with the help of the Creatual design method, you will craft a unique creative-ritual (creatual) solution to understand, overcome, close or celebrate your personal story.
During this retreat, you will experience the powerful combination of Holotropic Breathwork and Creatuals – introducing you to the therapeutic holotropic experience, and helping you develop the creative capacity to process through individually-crafted rituals.
Holotropic Breathwork is an experiential method developed in the 70s by Dr. Stanislav Grof and Christina (his former wife), for deep self-exploration. It has a common ground with experiential therapies which focus on direct emotional expression and work with the body providing access to the biographical, perinatal, and transpersonal material of the unconscious.
Is a very powerful method which combines very simple elements: accelerated breathing while the breather listens to a set of intense music in the presence of a trained facilitator, who supports and accompanied the session with very specific bodywork. It induces deep holotropic states of consciousness, also known as Non-ordinary states of consciousness (NSCs) or holotropic states, which provide deep healing. It activates the mind-body connection with minimal risk for the participants when guided by a trained facilitator.
Contraindications: cardiovascular diseases, glaucoma, epilepsy, recent surgical operations or fractures, advanced pregnancy. Breathwork is meant to support transformation processes and times of crisis. Nevertheless, participants must have stable emotions to take part in it. No previous experience with any form of Breathwork is required to participate.
Creatuals: Creative Ritual Design
Creatuals are uniquely crafted ‘creative rituals’ to mark special moments and give symbolic meaning to subjects that matter. They are designed and played out for any kind of opening, closing, connection or change process.
Through the creatual methodology, you will be guided to recognise and define the core dilemma of your discovered issues during the breathwork session. In steps, you will design your personal creative ritual recipe. By choosing ingredients and objects that are symbolically related to your story and combining their specific way, you will learn to craft your solution ritual concept to play out when the time is right.
With creatual work, you learn to understand how you can symbolically close old doors and open new ones in search of new daylight. A self-designed creatual can provoke magical solutions to issues with, for you, significant meaning.
