A Vision Quest is a time-out, usually in deep nature, where the outer, everyday life is temporarily left behind, where one fasts from food and words, and the subtle becomes loud and evident. These conditions will be opportune for a deep dive into Holotropic Breathwork.
What is Holotropic Breathwork?
Holotropic Breathwork, founded by Stanislav Grof and Christina Grof, is a powerful means of inner exploration using non-ordinary states of consciousness for deep healing and transformation. It is a powerful combination of breathwork and music, using focused bodywork as needed. An intro talk is given ahead with the opportunity to ask questions. The group experience has 2 breathing sessions, integrative art and sharing at the end. Each participant will experience one session as a breather, and one as a sitter.
By entering into a non-ordinary state of consciousness, one is able to access the inner healer and its wisdom more easily and with less inhibitions and interference from the analytical mind. The body’s cellular memories, including inter-uterine ones, are welcome and supported to be released and processed as ready.
The Quest takes place in the UAE Empty Quarter’s sand dunes for 3 nights and 4 days.
This 4-day quest will draw on the study of Nature Mysticism and how to stand with one foot in the ordinary world and one foot in the non-ordinary world for the sake of healing – of others, of oneself, of one’s community and the Earth. Our Earth is honored as a living being and we as humans, are validated and enhanced in our communication and interconnectivity with it in an active and conscious way. As we all know, with the current Earth changes, this communion is more poignantly needed than ever before.
This intensive will be held four days in the remote UAE sand dunes of Rub Al Khali, or the Empty Quarter, of the UAE. This is about 4 hours away from Dubai.
This work will include a psycho-spiritual approach, influenced by the Nature Wisdom Traditions, Holotropic Breathwork and also bring in Kundalini Yoga. These will be incorporated into the intensive as expansion tools, and a means of grounded integration for all that will be accessed over the 3 nights, 4 days.
Note: Due to Covid, currently one needs a Covid test to enter Abu Dhabi Emirate, within 72 hours. Also the operators will provide their vehicles, but can only take 2 people per 4WD.
