Experience breathwork in the style developed by psychedelics pioneer Stanislav Grof and his late wife Christina. This workshop is designed both to assist people in their integration of psychedelics experiences and as a safe and legal alternative to using psychedelics for healing and self-exploration. Hosted by Jay Dufrechou and his colleagues Ryan Westrum and Patty Nagle, all trained in the facilitation of Holotropic Breathwork, the workshop will follow the safe and supportive practices developed by the Grofs with the intention to model the ideal “set and setting” for psychedelics work, as well as offer a supported training ground for navigating inner terrains. We will gather on Thursday evening to form community and introduce the theory and practice of breathwork. Friday will include two breathwork sessions, with each participant “breathing” once and “sitting” once for a fellow participant, followed by integration through artwork and sharing of experience. Seminar on Integrating Nonordinary States of Consciousness follows on Saturday, October 19, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
