Holotropic Breathwork Introduction

InnerSpace Integration aims to provide a supportive container for individuals who are on a path of intentional growth and a journey toward well-being, serving the growing community during this psychedelic renaissance.

We are once again excited to again host Michael Stone, a Los Angeles based Stan-Grof-Certified Holotropic Breathwork Facilitator to bring you a unique opportunity for a Holotopic Breathwork introductory experience. Through this offering we wish to introduce the community to additional modes of self-discovery, catharsis and a connection with transpersonal states. Please note Holotropic Breathwork is an expansive, activating practice (If you are currently seeking grounding integration activities, please consider attending our other events).

Michael will first speak about how Holotropic Breathwork was developed, how it works and what kind of results people can expect from HB. Following the talk, there will be a one hour "mini-breathwork" experience where participants can find out for themselves what it is like to access the profound healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness through one's own breath and music. He will then host a concluding integration session.

About Michael Stone:
Michael was originally educated in the sciences and obtained a Chemical Engineering degree from UC Berkeley and then an MBA from the University of Southern California. About 15 years ago, he took a trip to Peru and received a profound healing when he experienced a non-ordinary state of consciousness during an Ayahuasca ceremony. When he returned to the US, he began a search for modalities that could access the same healing potential but without using any substances. This led him to Holotropic Breathwork, which was developed by Dr. Stan Grof (based on his research with LSD psychotherapy) that allows people to access the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness using your own breath and evocative music. Since Holotropic Breathwork had such a profound impact on his life, he decided to complete the rigorous two year facilitator training program in order to be able to facilitate Holotropic Breathwork workshops himself so that he could bring this experience to others.

A quote from Jack Kornfield - Author of A Path With Heart about HB: "The therapeutic benefits of Holotropic Breathwork are remarkable. The healing of illness, anxiety, depression and conflict, the release and healing of trauma and abuse, the reintegration with family and community, the opening of compassion, forgiveness, courage and love, the reclaiming of purpose, the finding of our lost soul and the higher insights of spiritual understanding all come spontaneously from the unfolding of this powerful process."
