The Insight and Opening retreat is an intensive setting for exploring Holotropic BreathworkTM and Buddhist insight meditation. This unique blend of disciplines is presented in a safe and supportive environment as an opportunity for inner work, which can be integrated into daily life.  The schedule for this retreat will be full. Each morning there will be instruction, lecture and periods of meditation. The afternoons will be devoted to the practice of Holotropic Breathwork and integrative activities such as mandala drawing. Evenings will include meditation and discussion in small groups facilitated by Grof Certified Holotropic Breathwork facilitators.  Lectures will include the fundamentals of Buddhist Psychology and practice; the theory and practice of Holotropic Breathwork; the New Paradigm and a blend of topics from Eastern and Western Psychology.  Each participant will work with a partner throughout the retreat and will have two sessions of Holotropic Breathwork as a ‘breather’ and two as a ‘sitter’ for their partner.
