Jiva Breathwork Facilitator Training

Jan 2024 – Dec 2024

Facilitators: KC Thomas and Sigrid Lindemann

Training in JIVA Breathwork

Participants take part in several sessions of 2-3 hrs of intense breathing, which leads to deep physical and emotional release. Furthermore, inner journeys frequently lead to memories of childhood or birth, and also of past lives and spiritual realms. JIVA Breathwork is a well researched practice, providing a safe space with an attendant, to an enhanced self healing experience.

In the words of Grof: “Holotropic states bring to consciousness that which has a strong emotional charge in us already. Something that is psychodynamically relevant at the time and is most available for us for conscious processing.” With a bit faster and deeper breathing we enter a holotropic state with the intention of healing and self-discovery – it invites a kind of inner radar that scans our unconscious and brings to consciousness that material to which we most need to attend and heal. Holotropic states of consciousness, then, are those non-ordinary, expansive, states that invite and support this innate movement towards wholeness.

The 5 day workshops can be booked each separately to empower your personal healing.
