Primal Breathwork is a powerful approach to healing and self-exploration combining movement, accelerated breathing, focused body/energy work, evocative music, and interpersonal connection to facilitate insight, emotional release, and integration.
Primarily inspired by Stanislav Grof’s Holotropic Breathwork and integrating insights from modern body-centered trauma research, perinatal and trans-personal psychology, eastern spiritual practices, and amazonian curanderismo.
The process itself is very simple:
it combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a special set and setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness.
This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and
for that particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.
Breathwork is not psychotherapy, but can act as a powerful catalyst for any ongoing psycho-therapeutic, relational, or spiritual practice.
