The trauma experienced during a birth with complications or by caesarean section (c-section) can be the cause of many mental illnesses in childhood and adulthood.
These mental health problems can be treated with the Grof® breathwork technique, which allows one to revisit the traumatic situation and relive it again with appropriate support. If the trauma is related to birth, an experience in a water environment is even more effective.
Holotropic breathing in water makes the experience of birth trauma more accessible and accelerates healing, in both children and adults.
At the Center Holos, we are planning to complete the entire center by the construction of a therapeutic pool, which will be adapted to perform the Holotropic breathing in water. With all the necessary facilities, a relaxing sauna area and in the safe environment of the Holos Centre, so that people here can work through the deepest roots of their psychological problems.
You can get involved as well, make a regular or one-off donation, share news of the project with your friends or volunteer. Thank you!
