My husband has just become certified in somatic body work. One of the things they learned was holotropic breath work which he said was positively trippy. Coincidentally, I am reading Michael Pollan’s excellent book, How to Change Your Mind, about the history of therapeutic psychedelics, both medical (mostly LSD and psilocybin) and shamanic (mushrooms and ayahuasca).
Since I do not have access to any psychedelics, I am going to try experimenting with holotropic breath work. Have any of you readers tried it? Any thoughts? Experiences to report? Please share! Music/drumming is helpful in keeping the rhythm, so if you know of any good tracks, I’d love to know about them. Also: a Vogue article
I will keep you posted…but as I might have mentioned previously, we are moving in the fall, and right now, I am crazed with packing and all the other stuff involved with selling a home (actually two) and buying another. No time to be trippin’! Once we’re settled in, I hope to have many new and interesting posts. Thanks, as always, for your patience and indulgence.
Buy the book!
