Open to anyone interested. Previous experience with Holotropic Breathwork® is not necessary.
Each participant will have two sessions of HB as an experiencer, or “breather,” and two sessions as a partner, or “sitter”. Besides the breathwork sessions and the topics covered (described below), there will be art, music, dancing, film, and integration during the module.
In addition to Holotropic Breathwork® breathing and sitting, topics explored in these modules are especially relevant for anyone working with others in expanded states of any sort for transformation and personal healing.
The Three Cauldrons are the repositories of our vital essence, our life-force, our Spirit. They are vessels of sacredness containing our soul’s vitality, our creative energies and our soul’s experiences as it travels through life. The Three Cauldrons rest in the physical body, fueling our energy, vocation and capacity for wisdom.
During the course of our work together we will access our spiritual repository of vision, enlightenment and inspiration; thus allowing it to become a source for the weaving of our life pattern, through daily ritual, creativity (such as art, sound, dance) and the day to day unfolding of the self. During our work, participants will explore shamanism as a spiritual practice and the role of the shamanic journey within that context. Our aim is to ensure the clear and free-flowing nature of our essence and energy through the body; that body being open to the influence of physical, somatic and spiritual blocks. We will explore each Cauldron – each with its own role and function – through journey, chant ceremony to explore that which lies within. Through the unfolding of being in conscious awareness, we will hope to become ‘whole unto ourselves’, no longer restricted by patterns existing in unawareness.
It is hoped that at the conclusion of our work, participants will have the ability to use shamanic techniques to help access and express their own sources of inspiration for use in living creatively, freely and fully from the heart.
