Online / Spirit of Place: Exploring Our Ensouled Relationship with Place & Belonging

Thursday, August 6 evening, through Sunday August 9, 2020

A GTT Virtual Module with VICKY NICHOLSON

Online by Zoom, Mountain Daylight Time


Please email Janet Kingsley, GTT office manager,

Starting in 2020, GTT offered real-time virtual events that are as close to a GTT module experience as we can make them in an online format.

This “Virtual Module” is open to anyone interested. There is group interaction, teaching, and experiential sessions.  Everything except actual Holotropic Breathwork® sessions, since HB cannot be done virtually.

To enhance the group experience for everyone, please note that you will be expected to attend all sessions of the module just as you would if it were being held live, at a retreat center.

Although you may attend this Virtual Module as a stand-alone event, there is also an option for those who wish to get full module credit. In that case, you will be able to make up the Holotropic Breathwork® component in HB-only workshops that we will offer as soon as it is safe to do so. Up to two of these combined Virtual Modules + HB component can be counted toward the seven modules required for certification.


Place is full of significance that is characterized by an acceptance that we simply belong to and identify with it. Place is our home. Join this online community to engage in practices to help us remember our true self, our wholeness, and our deepest sense of belonging.

Our understanding of the spirit of place is supported by the special relationship we foster between our natural surroundings—place—and belonging. Belonging means being present with ourselves, as well as those closest to us (our clan, tribe, family, neighbour, nation). But it is also about being engaged in a colossal cosmic setting—what we call the transpersonal dimensions of our being.

This Virtual Module offers a variety of exciting explorations in the natural world, and within our own being. Through the emergence of what we call ‘our stories’, we can learn to listen deeply to what is most meaningful to us as individuals existing within a greater whole. Storytelling has long been a sacred tradition of indigenous peoples from all lands. It is essential to the health and wellbeing of our collective to develop the co-creative process of bringing the universe into being.

We will spend time outdoors engaging with the natural surroundings in your neighbourhood and share our adventures and discoveries by connecting together through the online video link. Join us in an adventure of self-remembering ‘in place’ to deepen our connections of self with world.

All the teaching is geared to participants having a direct experience of their own journey. We will work with explorations in the natural world, guided journey work, other contemplative practices, movement and ceremony to engage the Holotropic principles in a very personal, embodied way.


While open to anyone interested, this topic is an Optional Module for anyone wishing to become a certified Holotropic Breathwork® Facilitator.
