To enhance the group experience for everyone, please note that everyone will be expected to attend all 7 sessions of the module just as you would if it were being held live, at a retreat center. 

Join us in an exploration of how the Holotropic paradigm and Stan Grof’s cartography of the psyche can be a helpful framework and set of tools for safe and effective psychedelic sitting. We’ll explore the well known concepts used in GTT’s Holotropic Breathwork® facilitator training, such as: our innate inner-healing wisdom, non-directive facilitation, integrity through presence and the idea of healing through amplification of symptoms. Through a hybrid of discussion and experiential practices, we’ll also explore:

– Set and setting
– Presence as a compass
– Practitioner self-awareness and accountability
– The inner healing impulse as a path to integrity, moving toward impeccability (through owning our humanity)
– Ethical issues on the topics of power, sex and intimacy
– Preparation and integration 
– Considerations working with certain populations: addiction, complex trauma, eating disorders, psychonauts 
– Issues with touch
– Working with transference and projection
– Working with challenging  psychedelic experiences (looping, confusion, extreme emotions, identity loss, nonverbal states) 
– Working with inflation
While designed primarily for psychedelic sitting, this Virtual Module can be of value for anyone who wants to enhance their work with others in expanded states of consciousness in other settings, such as spiritual emergency, breathwork, sitting for the dying, etc.

This “Virtual Module” is open to anyone interested. There will be group interaction, teaching, and experiential sessions, everything except actual Holotropic Breathwork® sessions, since HB cannot be done virtually. The topic is an Elective Modules, of which three are needed for anyone wishing to become a certified Holotropic Breathwork® Facilitator.

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 by attending a GTT-approved double breathwork workshop.  Up to two Virtual Module+Double Breathwork combinations may be counted toward the requirements for certification.

This event consists of seven 3-hour sessions.
