By participating in Breathwork, you will gain direct access to your own inner healing wisdom. During your session, this wisdom brings you a unique and ideal combination of experiences that can include aspects of your personal history, psychological death and rebirth, transpersonal interconnections, and the greater reality to which we all belong. Non-ordinary states of consciousness are achieved by using simple faster, deeper sustained breathing, accompanied by a specially designed musical journey. People are in a safe and supportive setting with a well-trained, experienced facilitator. Mandala drawing grounds the experience and is used with group processing of your experiences.
Dr. Lynn will create custom daylong breathwork experiences for special groups upon invitation. At this time there are no regular local meetings planned. Call for workshop space, equipment and materials specifications.
Sessions consist of 4-hour sessions of breathing and sitting for partners.
$300.00 for private sessions. $150.00 per group member.

"The session was great, helpful and the great value. Regular breathing is priceless.”
"I felt safe, felt nurtured, trusting, a unique, profound experience."
“There was nothing to apologize for, nothing to forgive, but just to Be, and just to Breathe, and to let all those old feelings of emotional deprivation heal from the inside out.”
What is Holotropic Breathwork?
Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world. The name Holotropic means literally "moving toward wholeness
The process itself uses very simple means: it combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a special set and setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual's psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for that particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike.
Additional elements of the process include focused energy release work and mandala drawing. Holotropic Breathwork™ is usually done in groups, although individual sessions are also possible. Within the groups, people work in pairs and alternate in the roles of experiencer and "sitter". The sitter's role is simply to be available to assist the breather, not to interfere or interrupt the process. The same is true for trained facilitators, who are available as helpers if necessary.
