Description

Holotropic Breathwork Retreat

The Breath as Sacred Medicine


PAUSE Lantau is honoured to be partnering with Thomas Amiard to host our very first HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK RETREAT.


Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from various practices including psychology, anthropology and Eastern spiritual practices. Anyone seeking healing for past problems or psychosomatic blockage may benefit from the practice, as well as those seeking insight, guidance or access to intuition and creativity.


The term holotropic is derived from Greek roots, holos, meaning “whole” and trepein, meaning “to turn, lead, guide”. Thus, Holotropic Breathwork may be defined as “breathwork that leads to or turns us toward wholeness”.


Holotropic Breathwork combines accelerated breathing with evocative music and close one-on-one supervision in order to access insight and healing in non-ordinary states of consciousness. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breathing – supported by the music -- to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness. Holotropic breathing is faster and deeper than usual; generally no other specific instructions are given before or during the session as to the rate, pattern, and nature of breathing. The experience is entirely internal and largely non-verbal, without interventions.


Entering a non-ordinary consciousness, in this context, activates the natural inner healing process, generating experiences unique to each person for that particular time and place. Breathers often experience recurring themes, but no two breathwork sessions are ever the same.
