Registration Required

breathe brainerdJoin Grof-certified facilitators, Kirsten Kairos and Jay Dufrechou, for an in-depth conversation about Holotropic Breathwork and the use of expanded states of awareness for increased consciousness, healing and transformation.

This event is free and open to the public with RSVP by following the link to Eventbrite. PLEASE NOTE: This evening precedes the weekend workshop, which is a separate event.

Holotropic Breathwork, developed by world-renowned psychiatrist and researcher, Stanislav Grof, and his late wife Christina, invites the breather on a deep journey inward supported by accelerated breath, evocative music, requested focused energy release techniques, integrative process via mandala drawing and group sharing. This process is for those wanting to identify and release old patterns, to heighten creativity, to understand the importance of powerful transformation, to open to positive possibilities, to heal past traumas and benefit from clearing unprocessed life experience that may be cluttering the path to living authentically.

Dandelion Farm drivewayThis event will last no more than 2 1/2 hours, and will include a discussion about Holotropic Breathwork: the elements of a typical session, the possibilities of personal experience and a little about the history of Stan Grof and why he felt the need to bring Holotropic Breathwork forward as a healing modality.

We will have a short experiential piece sitting up with eyeshades on to feel into what the breathing pattern might be for you, to deeply listen to brief examples of the type of evocative music that is played and to feel into the potential range of energetic release with body movement and sounding.

What to bring: water bottle, journal & pen and wear comfortable clothes.

Tea and a light snack will be provided.

We look forward to deepening the conversation about expanded states of awareness!

Breathe. Discover. Integrate.

Breathwork retreatJoin Kirsten Kairos, Jay Dufrechou & Sara Sherman for an intimate experiential weekend as we journey inward to uniquely discover what is waiting to be released and integrated in order for us to move ever closer to our truest nature. Now more than ever it feels imperative that we deeply connect to self, others and all of life with the passion and purpose that is inherently ours.

Holotropic Breathwork, developed by world-renowned psychiatrist and researcher, Stanislav Grof, invites the breather on a deep journey inward supported by accelerated breath, evocative music, requested focused energy release techniques, integrative process via mandala drawing and group sharing. This process is for those wanting to identify and release old patterns, to heighten creativity, to understand the importance of powerful transformation, to open to positive possibilities, to heal past traumas and benefit from clearing unprocessed life experience that may be cluttering the path to living authentically.

The use of sound as medicine throughout the weekend awakens our senses to to the subtle. We become more receptive to simple cues and are more able to fully relax into our bodies as we drop out of thinking mind. Vibration is within is and around us, and working with simple sound we begin to understand we can consciously choose how we move in the flow of energetics to engage in our world with more ease.

Sara and white horseOur extraordinary time with horses, led by EGCM facilitator, Sara Sherman, demonstrates the power of equus (the horse) as partner, space holder, mirror and compassionate teacher and invites us deeper into the heart as we learn more about self-awareness, integration and confidence. This is a rich part of our weekend! *No prior experience is necessary for interaction with horses.

Daily Agendas

Friday Night
Friday night is our preparation for the Saturday sessions, which includes an opening circle, Q&A, an experiential exploration of movement, sounding, music and partnering up. We will end with a beautiful Sound Sanctuary experience to drop us in a bit deeper before departing for the evening. Please plan to hold silence as much as possible until we reconnect Saturday morning. This helps us remain connected to the inner space for our process.
