This is a unique opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork at Esalen, the place where it originated. Holotropic Breathwork is an experiential method of self-exploration and healing that uses deep, expanded states of consciousness induced by a combination of simple means: accelerated breathing, evocative music, and releasing bodywork. The theory and practice of Holotropic Breathwork integrates experiences from more than a half-century of psychedelic therapy, transpersonal psychology, non-drug experiential psychotherapy, and modern consciousness research.
