This specific breathing technique, holotropic breath embodies therapeutic purposes for mind, heart, body & spirit.

It promotes opening and expansion of the airways from once shallow and restricted breathing patterns. It facilitates a fulfilling, connected and balanced life by moving through suffering, pain and tension to relaxation and ease.

How Does It Work?

This particular breathwork practice utilises a deep, open mouthed connected breath. This causes an influx of oxygen into our system, depleting levels of carbon dioxide. This altered state triggers a release of molecule, Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) from our pineal gland. DMT creates a bridge from the conscious mind to the subconscious allowing our parasympathetic nervous system to kick in and rest our mind completely. A productive, gentle and cleansing release of stagnant energies and stored stress can then take place.

Holotropic Breathwork: Healing Through Psychedelic States

You breathe every day without pausing to think about it. Breathing is just one of the things that your brain does on autopilot. However, when you breathe consciously and harness the power that lies in simply breathing, you’d be amazed by the results. For example, in various meditation practices, breathing helps to calm the mind and body. You can also “transcend the narrow boundaries of the body ego” just by breathing. This might sound like mumbo-jumbo, however, it has been scientifically proven by the theory of Holotropic Breathing.
