In advance of the gathering, you will complete an application form where we will screen to be sure this modality is suitable for you.
Prior to gathering, the group will meet in circle to learn about the process in greater depth, connect, and finalise preperations.
Expect a three hour breathing session in a context marked by unconditional acceptance and emotional support. The group is divided into pairs - "sitters" & "breathers" and the session divided into two, three-hour breathing sessions, alternating in the roles.
The sitter’s role is simply to be present and available to assist the breather—not to interfere, interrupt, or try to guide the process. The same is true for trained facilitators, who are available as helpers if necessary.
This setting is a key part of this work and it allows the breather to open up to its experience with greater sense of confidence. This state activates the natural "inner radar" process of the individual’s psyche, onsetting the breather a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content that emerges is unique to each person. While recurring themes are common, every session is different.
An integration is carried out to weave and anchor the process into creative expression and verbal language.
You will complete a mandala and also be guided through a creative embodiment practice in the form of movement.
A sharing circle will showcase your mandala, your own essence of your insights of your own experience in a sharing circle between you and the group.
Yoga in the Stars is a not-for-profit yoga club, with a focus on esoteric health and connection, embracing all practices that can help us navigate life in the 21st Century. For more information on the visiting facilitators, both local and from around the globe get in touch here.
The goal of Grof® Breathwork is to essentially use accelerated breathing to increase awareness of the self as well as cope with traumatic memories. This technique allows you to access parts of your psyche that can’t be reached under normal conditions, and it helps us to relieve mental health conditions and different symptoms, including:
Depression | Substance use disorder | Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). | Anxiety | Negative thinking | Grieving | Chronic stress | Tension | Avoidance behaviours
