What is Holotrophic Breathwork?
The word "holotrophic" means 'moving towards wholeness' and this specific type of breathing is designed to help the breather access states beyond those we usually experience in normal consciousness. Far from being scary, or over-whelming, this breath allows you to alter your intensity at any time so that you remain in complete control of your experience.
Many scientists and bodyworkers have come to realise that emotion is stored within the body and there are many ways to release this. Sometimes however, events which become emotionally "stuck" in our body happen before we have the ability to describe or even remember them. This is called pre-cognitive trauma. Breathwork can be a powerful way to allow unprocessed emotion to be released from the body which has been held onto, all the way back to our birth.
This type of breathing which is done in the chest, is designed to help shift any stuck emotion, however this can show up as powerfully positive emotions of laughter, love and bliss as much as releasing any negative ones. The breathwork is completely intuitive, like having a 1-1 conversation with body and mind at the same time. This makes this process more about letting go, rather than becoming overwhelmed. You are in complete control of your experience.
