Holotropic Breathwork gherapy how the Grofs developed their revolutionary healing techniques, often told through fascinating stories of people being transformed by the breathwork process. The Grofs are at the center of the current psycho-spiritual revolution in the West, and this book is a testament to their role in our collective healing.

Jan 07, Indradeep Ghosh rated it really liked it Shelves: Very good companion to “LSD Psychotherapy”.
Sep 13, Andrew rated it it was ok. Considered giving the thegapy one star, but there are like ten or twenty pages that have understandable and moderately insightful material.
You cannot perform holotropic breathwork on yourself, so unless you aim to become a facilitator, or you for some reason enjoy reading textbooks, don’t read this. Do not read this book unless you’re a professional interested in leading breathwork sessions. This book is holltropic for laypeople, and it’s criminal that isn’t made clear anywhere in its description or intr Considered giving the book one star, but there are like ten or twenty pages that have understandable and moderately insightful material.
This book is not for laypeople, and it’s criminal that isn’t made clear anywhere in its description or introduction. The material is lofty and uninteresting. If you’ve had the therapy, I can’t imagine any of this would be new to you.
If you want to have the therapy, just go do it. If you for some reason have a burning desire to read about the therapy, I guess read this book? The first pages are spent explaining the process. Then, there are some accounts of people’s experiences. It honestly just comes across as a justification of why the breathwork is legit and kind of a sales pitch for it. Like a holotropic breathwork infomercial. If you already are interested in doing some sessions, just talk to a pro and skip this book.
Oct 28, Suhrob rated it it was ok. I’ve read in the past few months several of Grof’s book and I’m not putting them up on Goodreads: I don’t remember a more vivid example of the difference between an academic and a scientist.
Holotropic Breathwork: A New Approach to Self-Exploration and Therapy by Stanislav Grof
Grof is definitely academic, unfortunately operating for decades in the fringes, he has forgotten what science really means There is a tiny bit of physiology, a bit of psychology, and whole dollops of fringe-psychology and new-agey stuff. Grof is more interested in case studies, running workshops and in the somewhat stereotypical academic new-ageism. That is OK-ish assuming he doesn’t hurt anybody – and I actually trust he doesn’t. I just hope somebody picks up this topic with a serious careful methodology.
May 08, Sara Gray rated it liked it. While this is geared more towards therapists, Hokotropic found this a good introduction to holotropic breathwork, how it is facilitated, and what to expect from a workshop I intend to take in a few weeks.
I would suggest it to anyone interested in the history of transpersonal psychology, consciousness, or breathwork in general. Jan 22, Sien rated it liked it. Not what I was expecting. Oct 02, Anne rated it breathwogk liked it. Grof writes so clearly and so engaging on concepts that are so complex. I would like to try a session of the holotropic breath work at some point. The concept of interconnected nests is one I have believed for a long time, and Grof’s work confirms it for me!
