As you start to get into the rhythm after a few minutes, you may switch to totally mouth breathing rapidly. Holotropic Holotropic breathwork is a practice often accompanied with intense music and led by an instructor guiding a group of participants.

However, you do not want to breathe so fast that you create tension in your body…your body, and especially your lungs, should be relaxed, without straining, so that the breath can be maintained for a long period of time without tiring yourself out. As explained above, Holotropic breathwork has immense mental healing benefits. No longer confined to the limited logic of traditional thought, the part ceases to be just a fragment of the whole but, under certain circumstances, reflects and contains the whole. Through meditationlucid dreamingsensory deprivationand a myriad of other natural means, we can achieve altered states of consciousness.

With the ego out of commission, the boundaries between self and world, subject and object dissolve. Next, the participant shares what happened during the experience. People get release from the trauma and difficult experiences they may have buried, and gain the capacity to move toward positive transformation and wholeness. Sessions can either be single sessions with only the individual seeking treatment present or group sessions.
