Grof Holotropic Breathwork Indonesia

Come Experience the Journey towards Wholeness at YAKITA

Our Spirituality Lies in Wholeness

Are you searching for something in your life? Do you feel that there is something that is missing in your life? Or are you already in that journey, and looking out to expand it more into the unknown, into the Universe?

Perhaps, Holotropic Breathwork can help you ....  

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", from the Greek words "holos"=whole and "trepein" =moving towards. 

Holotropic Breathwork is a gateway towards wholeness, a gate open for those who seek an understanding of themselves and their own sacred purpose and place in the universe.  

Dr. Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D and his wife, Christina Grof, developed this powerful and natural technique in the mid-1970's from modern consciousness research and their study of ancient spiritual systems. 

Dr. Stanislav Grof, M.D. is one of the founder of the Transpersonal Psychology field and is listed in the 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People in the World. In his book, Psychology of the Future,puts it this way, 

"in holotropic states, we can transcend the narrow boundaries of the body ego and reclaim our full identity." 


 Apakah engkau mencari sesuatu dalam hidupmu? Apakah kau merasa ada sesuatu yang hilang dalam hidupmu? Ataukah kau sudah ada dalam perjalanan tersebut dan mencari cara untuk berkembang meraih semesta?

Mungkin Holotropic Breathwork bisa membantumu ...

Holotropic Breathwork adalah cara yang luar biasa untuk mengeksplorasi diri dan penyembuhan diri yang mengintegrasikan pencerahan pribadi lewat tradisi riset kesadaran, antropologi, psikologi mendalam, psikologi transpersonal, praktek spiritual ketimuran dan tradisi mistis dunia.

Nama Holotropic Breathwork secara literal berarti 'bergerak menuju keutuhan', dari bahasa Yunani "holos"=utuh dan "trepein" = bergerak menuju.

Holotropic Breathwork bisa dilihat sebagai pintu menuju keutuhan diri, pintu yang terbuka bagi mereka yang mencari pemahaman akan diri sendiri dan tujuan serta tempat mereka di Semesta. 

Dr. Stanislav Grof, M.D. Ph.D dan istrinya, Christina Grof, mengembangkan tehnik luar biasa alami ini di tahun 1970-an dari riset modern tentang kesadaran dan studi mereka akan sistem spiritual kuno.

Dr. Stanislav Grof, M.D. adalah seorang penemu bidang ilmu Psikologi Transpersonal dan disebut sebagai salah satu dari 100 Orang Hidup yang Paling Berpengaruh Secara Spiritual di Dunia. Dalam bukunya, Psychology of the Future, mengatakan:

"dalam keadaan holotropik, kita dapat melampaui batasan sempit ego tubuh dan mereklamasi identitas penuh kita"
