How has the practice of breathwork affected your life and work? ( This will be shown on your public profile.)
It has absolutely informed every area of my life and continues on a second-to-second basis to uplift me toward wholeness in a way that will, I'm sure, always be full of surprises and an ultimately playful mystery.

Rebirth of Fires Creek

Hey, everybody!



It's nice to be re-communicating. A little less than a year ago I wrote about feeling kind of "cosmically flabbergasted" as I announced that Fires Creek, our center for wellness and renewal in the North Carolina mountains, was not going to happen. Well, I guess feeling flabbergasted by the often capricious nature of Consciousness is becoming a sort of a life default mode for Cary and me. So, with a degree of hesitation and excitement, here we go again: Fires…

Grof Transpersonal Training Bulletins from the Field

Hi everybody!

Just a quick check-in, and then I'm off to Brazil to be with very dear friends and co-workers, Alvaro and Dora. They're closing in on the end of the training cycle down there. Diane Haug to come next spring, and then certification in the fall. Alvaro and Dora are planning to keep going -- make a running training there for a long time. Awesome.

Lots of good buzz all over about Stan and Christina's new book. What a timely release! Can't wait to see where this…

Uluru, Sacred Springs and Wild Camels

In gratitude to my dear friend Marianne Wobke, and to all my aboriginal friends and teachers, I would like to acknowledge all the ancestors and original custodians of every sacred spot, every inch of Planet Earth. And to humbly ask that all the work we do on ourselves and with others through Holotropic Breathwork and through all other ways, be not only for our own good but also for all Beings and for this Earth as well.

I feel as though I ought to try invoking…

MY WORLD CUP RUNNETH OVER

Hey, everybody! In a few hours I'm off to Australia for my annual month trip there with wonderful people, penguins in Tasmania, and retreat at Uluru. Torn from my big screen TV and my son Bryn, my fellow rabid World Cup companion -- now that it's just getting interesting! I had big plans to write the Sacred Isles portion of my homage to world HB training adventures, but, oh well, football insanity overtook me as it does every four years, and that, as they say, was that.

But this…

Hi Tav

Now that I see you moderate your comments. Are you able to let me know about Sasha. I am really SADDEN to hear of his death. I am SHOCKED I only left a message on his page 4 days after his death. I only wish there was an announcement on the community online thing so we can be informed. I am DEEPLY SHOCKED:(

Dear Tav,
We are readjusting to ordinary life & ordinary states of consciousness after the wonderful days with the Breathwork.

Hello Tav

Good to see your on the community now. Things are pretty much back to normal here in Australia. Hard to put the certication learning into practice. Not enough groups in Australia and too expensive to fly over to the U.S for practice and apprenticeships. The journey continues.

With love & kind regards

Mark
