Update from Grof Transpersonal Training

GTT TRAINING UPDATE So much has been going on with the growth of the Holotropic Breathwork (TM) training in recent years that we felt there was a lot of information about which you may not be aware, and might like to know. With that in mind, we’d like to share more about the training: past, present and future.

GTT training in India

In April 2013 Marianne and Holly led the first Grof Transpersonal Training module at the Don Bosco Centre for Psychology and Spirituality in Kerala, Southern India.

It had taken more than a year of planning and discussion with Don Bosco priest Father KC Thomas  to change thoughts about the training into a reality. Since then we have been back four more times, each time leading two modules with a core group of Nuns and Priests keen to complete their training, along with others interested in experiencing Holotropic Breathwork for their own personal growth.

In December 2014 Deb also came with us for the training - facilitating for the first week and joining the grouping as a breather for the second. So far it has been an incredibly rich experience for everyone involved.

This year we will be back in Kerala April for two more modules and again in December for first certification intensive in India. After that, who knows, maybe we will start a whole new round of training!

The training programme is offered pro bono by GTT.  Despite this, the cost of a module (around £90 including room and board) is prohibitive for many Nuns and Priests since they do not have incomes. 

If you are interested in sponsoring anyone to complete the training, or making HB accessible to Nuns and Priests who otherwise may not be able to access it (yet!), please contact Holly, Marianne or Deb…

Holotropic Breathwork Training Module in Slovenia - June 2013

Just back from the Bodywork module in Slovenia.  As usual, Tav's teaching was captivating, every time we were heading for a break and he asked how long everyone needed the standard response was 5 minutes!  We had Movie Yoga every evening and on the last night we all watched Tavs movie clips depicting the 4 perinatal matricies AMAZING!

Thank you everyone.  It's great to be doing this work.

In Russia with Stan & Christina Grof

We had a great time in Russia (Rostovnadonu)where there were over 70 participants. Christina and Stan were there for most of the week. Christina did the relaxations before the breathwork, wow what a treat. How many people can say that Christina Grof did the relaxation before their breathwork session?

Holotropic Breathwork seems to us to be one of the world's best kept secrets...

And since this is such an incredible and simple technqiue, we wonder what any of us who know about HB can do to bring it more into the public domain?

As a tool for self exploration for those seeking the adventure of self discovery - and also for those seeking to heal old wounds...

Keen to promote the availability, knowledge and growth of HB both in England and overseas, at HolotropicUK we will do all we can!

Please, let us know if you would like to arrange a talk on HB in your area -  whether to special interest groups, local agencies, universities or colleges. Stan Grof wrote an interesting and informative introductory essay on the theory and practice of Holotropic Breathwork, for those interested in reading more about HB,  here is a link to the paper:
