Considering Holotropic Breathwork® (2008) 170 pp. Softcover; 6×9 inches
The book contains Kylea Taylor’s essays and articles on the therapeutic and sociological functions and effects of the Holotropic Breathwork®, a non-drug method developed by Stanislav and Christina Grof for people to enter extra-ordinary states of consciousness and receive support for transformative process.
Because any experience available with the administration of psychedelics is also possible with Holotropic Breathwork®, this book is recommended for those doing or studying psychedelic-assisted therapy. It includes chapters on:
- What a therapist or a psychedelic psychotherapist can learn from being a Sitter in a Holotropic Breathwork® group session,
- What is now the InnerEthics® Awareness Tool “Protection, Permission & Connection,” which helps a therapist or practitioner assess the balance of risk, safety and support in a therapeutic container
- The research results from Kylea’s facilitation of Holotropic Breathwork® in a residential substance abuse recovery program in the 1990s
- An analysis of the elegant design of a Holotropic Breathwork® workshop or training module for employing the elements of breath and community to support the inner healing intelligence in the transformative process.
- A seminal idea about the Jungian Inferior Function as a gateway for spiritual emergence(y).
Other chapters include:
Sponsoring ‘Unexperienced Experience’, Similarities in the Treatment of Spiritual Emergency and Multiplicity, Yogic Sleep and Meditation States during Holotropic Breathwork®, and SoulCollage®: An Art Process to Use with Breathwork (and the integration of psychedelic sessions).
