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 Friday we will land softly to the place, meet the group and prepare for the inner journeys. The first breathing session is on Friday evening, two breathing sessions on Saturday and last session on Sunday morning. During the retreat we will provide good tools to integrate the experiences and we will focus on integration especially on Sunday. This is the first time we offer double breathwork in just three days, so people with more busy lives can participate. Because the inner work can be deep or intense, we do recommend to take free time for yourself on Thursday and especially on Monday, to give enough time and space to the inner process to unfold.


Retreat is held in the historical school of Röylä in Espoo (Snettansintie 39, 02940 Espoo), with quite easy access with public transport (it takes little over one hour to get to the venue from Helsinki center). Food is included in the price. Vegan dinner is served on Friday, lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on sunday. There will also be snacks and tea/coffee during the whole weekend.


There are different options for accommodation. In the venue there are no separate sleeping rooms, but it is possible to sleep in the breathing room, or in your tent outside. We will offer breakfast with the cost of 5€. You can also sleep anywhere else, just make sure you can participate within the retreat schedule. There are some accommodation services nearby, for example Backy kartano, Serena cottages, Hotel Korpilampi


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

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.


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

(Payment details below)


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 buy breakfast from us, you can pay for it with cash/mobilepay/bank transfer during registration (5€/breakfast) (you can decide this latest during the registration).

After you have watched the video, we will do a interview with 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.
