Mojca Studen

Mojca graduated from the Faculty of Physics at University of Ljubljana, and from the School of Fine Arts-Sculpturing at the same time. She worked as R&D in the field of NIR spectroscopy and capacitive humidity sensors.

From the beginning of her high school years, Mojca was interested in the boundaries and possibilities of human consciousness. She first sought answers in Sri Aurobindo’s and Krishnamurti’s ideas and philosophies. Through these, she began to practice yoga, especially pranayama. She also learned about Buddhism and the practice of getting to know herself through meditation. A happy coincidence brought her into contact with Carlos Castaneda’s books. At first, these were just interesting stories, beyond the boundaries of the possible, fiction, and legends. Curiosity gave her no peace–she made decisions and attended seminars and workshops organized by Carlos Castaneda, Taisha Abelar, and Florinda Donner Grau. Legends thus became a reality, or one of the possible realities.

The next step in learning about human consciousness was the study of transpersonal psychology and involvement in Grof Transpersonal Training and Transpersonal Hypnotherapy Institute. She has the good fortune of drawing her knowledge of transpersonal psychology directly from Dr. Stanislav Grof, who also mentored her Holotropic Breathwork® research.

She combined her knowledge of biophysics and transpersonal psychology into Neuro Training–a technology that uses binaural tones in a unique way. It is designed as a gym for the brain.

The common thread in all of her searching is her hobby and passion: freediving. Through freediving, she’s learned many techniques of self-discovery and met and collaborated with many interesting people, such as Dr. Natalia Molchanov, her son Alexei Molchanov, Dr. Oleg Bahtiarev, and Dr. Hasai Aliev.

Since 2008 she has worked as a transpersonal psychotherapist and has organized various holotropic workshops. She is also an associate teacher at Sigmund Freud University.
