Mark Baugh (workshop leader) has been managing a retreat centre since 2011 in Scotland, where he offers Holotropic Breathwork® through “Caledonian Holotropic.” Mark was certified by GTT in 2018.
After working his way through a personal crisis in 2001 with the support of deep psychotherapy, a space for spiritual awareness kicked in. He embarked upon a quest to know himself further. Initially coming from a corporate background in the banking sector, he retrained in remedial and manipulative massage; as a couple counsellor with Relate; and also as a Reiki & EFT practitioner. He also trained in Tantra, NVC (Non-violent Communication), and has experienced living in community. He has a dedicated daily meditation practice called Heartfulness which he has been enjoying since 2010.
He started adventuring in holotropic states in 2009 with Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) and from that first experience he was hooked. It was the start of an amazing journey of deeply knowing himself with like-minded others in a very safe space. Early on he decided he would embark on the Grof training programme as one of his ways of being in service.
He is also an associate member of the Institute of Psychedelic Therapy.
