Holotropic Breathwork Residential Retreat – Deepening the Intuitive Adventure

Xenergie Professional Development Experiences for the Inner Traveller

This two-day residential workshop of Holotropic Breathwork, drumming/percussion and mindfulness in the West of Ireland offers a wonderful opportunity to step out of the routines and habits of daily life and explore deeper, often neglected facets of yourself.  A shift from left to right-brain, allowing something slower, creative, intuitive and embodied to emerge.

Holotropic Breathwork, developed by psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, is a powerful mode of inner-exploration. The breathwork is based on the idea that we all have an inner healer, an internal wisdom that will guide us, at the right time, to whatever we need to meet within ourselves. All we need to do is breathe and get out of the way!

The breathwork, which is very much an internal, personal journey, is perfectly complemented by drumming, an exciting, energizing and embodying group activity which is all about playing your part in the context of a larger group. We will learn how to play simple rhythms as well as using the drums as a tool for improvisation, spontaneity, communication and fun!

What will you get from this in your professional work?
The effectiveness of any intervention depends on the inner condition of the intervener.  This refers to the need for a continuous evolution and tuning of the mind, body and spirit to become more potent and effective channels for consulting and coaching work. Each of us has aspects of ourselves which are blocked or disassociated and these aspects manifest in challenging professional assignments and relationships.   This workshop will help you to reconnect, release and revitalise your intuitive energy and freedom to make a difference and in staying present in your most challenging work as a transformational consultant/coach.

Workshop facilitators
Andrew Collins had been searching for the truth for many years until he finally settled for having fun! It now seems quite possible that they are one and the same…  My journey has taken me from London to the West of Ireland, from van-driving, film and video editing to psychotherapy, always accompanied by music, always music.

For me these words, from Martha Graham, encapsulate what this life is about;

“There is vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”

My aim, through the breathwork, the percussion, the dance, the music, is to assist others and myself to touch into this essence and bring it out, softly or loudly, quietly or dramatically, into expression, so that it will not be lost.

Date: 22nd, 23rd and 24th January 2016 (arrive on the evening of the 22nd at 6pm to settle in and the workshop will finish up on the afternoon of the 24th).
