(Cancelled) March 2020 Holotropic Breathwork Circle

Holotropic Breathwork Workshop

Ruth and I wanted to let you know that we have decided to cancelled this workshop. It is unfortunate that we are making this decision but think it the best course of action considering the recent changes to the status of corona virus in Australia. A key part of the Holotropic Breathwork container is to ensure the safety of all participants and as such given the high risk of infection for the virus and the key advice to practice social distancing we believe that cancelling the workshop is the best course of action. Our next workshop will be held in June 13 - details coming soon. 

We invite you to participate in this Friday night and All day Saturday day workshop in Melbourne on the 28th and 29th March, 2020.

The workshop includes a friday evening opening circle from 7:30 - 9:30pm plus a full saturday of breathwork from 8:45 to 7:30pm. This is an experiential workshop where each participant will have the opportunity to experience Holotropic Breathwork as both a sitter and a breather.

What will the workshop cover?

Friday Evening 

Opening Circle

The workshop includes an opening circle on the Friday evening with an opportunity to meet the other participants in the workshop, hear a brief introduction to the practice of Holotropic Breathwork as well as the chance to choose a partner for the following day's breathwork session. The Friday evening session is also a good opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding Holotropic Breathwork. A small ceremony / ritual / experiential exercise will also be a part of the opening circle.


Two Breathwork sessions

The Saturday includes a morning and an afternoon breathwork session, where you will participate as a breather in one of the sessions and also sit for your partner in the other session.

Mandala, integration and sharing.

After each session there is the opportunity to start the integration process by creating a mandala / artwork of your experience. We will close the saturday with a closing sharing circle where participants will have the chance to share the experience of their breathwork session.

New breathers and people
new to Melbourne Breathwork workshops

Participants who are new to breathwork, will need to have a phone conversation with one of our facilitators so we can cover some introductory information covering Holotropic Breathwork as well as a chance for the participant to share any relevant information regarding previous experience of Holotropic breathwork or other practices. Please note: The introductory phone call can take between 30 minutes to one hour. Please get in contact with either Anthony or Ruth using the details listed below.
