The practice of Holotropic Breathwork, like most depth therapies, is an art more than a science. At its best, breathwork does not take place in a few hours. It requires that participants be persuaded into an attitude of open-mindedness and invited into an appreciation of community adventure. The essence is an experience that transcends any particular circumstances that engender it – an experience that springs to light in the soul and becomes self-sustaining. It is ultimately the nature of the soul that is the fundamental matter of interest for exceptional experience. Its locus cannot be found by those who would look here or there, for it lies in that boundless expanse within that knows no coordinates.
