9.-12.6. Turku, Konsan Kartano

Konsan Kartano, Virusmäentie 9, 20300 Turku

Welcome to dive deep within! Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful method for self-exploration, which utilizes the healing power of breath, music, bodywork and safe space. This retreat is a great opportunity to explore the method in-depth, since there will be altogether 4 breathwork sessions, in which each participant will be breathing in two and sitting in two. On Thursday we will land softly to the place and to ourselves, meet the group and start preparing us for the inner journeys. On Friday and Saturday there will be two breathing sessions. On Sunday we will have time and space to be with our inner processes and we will offer some techniques and tips for integration.


Retreat takes place in Konsan Kartano (Virusmäentie 9, 20300 Turku), on the outskirts of Turku, with easy bus connection and walking distance from Turku center. Lunch and dinner are included on Friday and Saturday, there will also be plenty of snacks and tea/coffee during the whole retreat. There is a possibility to sleep on the floor of the breathing room (costs 35€, including breakfast), but you can also sleep elsewhere, just make sure you can participate within the retreat schedule. For example B&B Tuure offers quite cheap rooms and it's just 1km away from the venue (


There is space for 10 participants. No previous experience of Holotropic Breathwork is required. We will use english and finnish, depending on the language of the participants. Translation is provided if needed. We are happy to have Rachel from Belgium as our guest facilitator.

How to reserve your place in the retreat


1. Fill the Registration form and Medical form from the link below


The purpose of the Medical form is to survey your relevant background information and possible contraindications for the retreat. This helps us to ensure that you can participate safely in the retreat. If you answer yes to some questions, it doesn't automatically mean you cannot participate; we will evaluate the situation together with you. If any question is unclear to you, ask us for clarification.


We will interview all the new participants through zoom 1-2 weeks before the event. The interview is also a good opportunity to ask questions or express any thoughts regarding the retreat. If you have been participating in our events, but would like to have a call with us, or if in your life there are some new themes we should be aware of, be in contact.


2. Pay the Deposit fee (50€) or the whole payment of the retreat


Your place will be confirmed after you have filled the registration and medical forms and paid the deposit fee or the whole payment of the retreat. After we have got your payment, we will send you a confirmation email. If you pay just the deposit fee, you need to pay the rest of the payment latest in registration, where you can pay with cash or mobilepay. If you choose to sleep in the venue, you can pay for it with cash/mobilepay during registration (35€) (you can decide this latest during the registration). If the retreat gets full, there will be a waiting list.
