31.3.-2.4. Piikkiö, Pyölinrannan leirikeskus

Pyölinrannan leirikeskus, Pyölintie 77, 21500 Piikkiö

Welcome to dive deep within in this full board retreat in the archipelago! Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful method of self-exploration, which helps us to connect more deeply with our inner healing wisdom through breath, music and somatic and emotional processing in a safe and supportive space. During the retreat everyone has the opportunity to surrender to the inner process with their own pace and style, and there is proper time for preparation and integration. On Friday we will land softly to the venue, meet the group and prepare for the inner journeys. On Saturday there will be two breathing sessions, in which each participant will be breathing in one session and sitting for the breather-partner in one. On Sunday we will have time and space for ourselves, and we will offer some techniques and tips for integration.


Retreat takes place in the archipelago Harvaluoto-island, in Pyölinrannan leirikeskus, quite close to Turku (Pyölintie 77, 21500 Piikkiö). There we have a big main building and cozy cabin by the sea with wooden sauna (sauna and swimming is possible in the evenings). Accommodation happens mainly in shared rooms. It is easiest to come to the retreat with a car, we will arrange shared car rides if possible. On Friday you can also get 1km from the venue with a local bus from Turku. During the whole weekend there are snacks and tea/coffee. On Saturday there is vegan lunch and dinner, and on Sunday the retreat ends with lunch.


No previous experience of Holotropic Breathwork is required. We will use english and/or finnish languages, depending on the language of the participants. Translation is provided if needed.

This helps us to ensure that you can participate safely in the retreat and that we can support your process during and after it. If you answer “yes” to some question, it doesn't automatically mean you cannot participate. If some question is unclear to you, ask us for clarification.

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.

We will interview all the participants, who have not been before in our events. Interview is also a good opportunity to ask questions or express any thoughts regarding the method or the retreat.
