A rare peak into holotropic breathwork: “It’s not like anything you know or have heard about” … here’s a taste, on video, of some authentic spiritual experiences….

Nuevorboldelavida


For those of my friends and followers who have been wondering what holotropic breathwork “looks like” here is a very rare clip…. Rare, because Stanislav Grof, its originator, has refused to allow the actual goings on of such workshops to be video recorded for media use. These experiences are too easily misunderstood and mislabeled, especially taken out of context. To my knowledge, he was unwilling to let the workshops be filmed unless the reporters themselves went through the experience. Perhaps this is one such. It occurred in the Eighties, and you will see a very young-looking Stanislav Grof facilitating here.



This is in German, so I can’t know what the commentary is saying. But this is most definitely what it looks like…. this is what i have been doing with my clients for years… this is what i have had years of experiencing with …this modality….

Simply describing what we do, no one really gets a good idea of what it’s like, for it is not like anything they know or have heard about….

So here it is folks.  a sample…

Of course, this says nothing about what the actual experience is like, actually feels like …. nor can it convey the profound transformations that go on inside one, or the depth and meaningfulness of the experience to one’s life….

But here’s a taste….

The Myth of Intelligence: Most of what is applauded as intelligent in modern societies is merely the linking together of socially approved and *audience flattering* cliches.

The Myth of Intelligence: “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed woman gets … killed.”



Most of what is applauded as intelligence in modern societies is merely the clever linking together of strings of socially acceptable cliches.

Most of what is applauded as great intelligence in modern societies is merely the linking together of socially approved and *audience flattering* cliches.

You don’t think so? Analyze the speech of any greatly admired civic leader or political figure.

Meanwhile, the truth and real intelligence lie uninspected and overlooked… requiring as they do, a certain letting go of the comfortable blanket of ego into an arena of the fearfully unexpected.

An arena fertile with the life energizing aspects of real self and of rebirth into authenticity..

But there are actually none among us who travel outside of the comfort zone of the familiar into the wisdom of insecurity, without being prodded by pain and discomfort … sometimes the discomfort of the familiar having become soured and sapping of life….

Bottom line:

People think folks are intelligent who enable people in their desire to wither away in the cesspool of ego pleasuring.

Actual life renewing truth is overlooked and relegated to the pool of the Unapproved and Hidden, both in cultures and in ourselves.

And that’s why God invented pain.

Take comfort: Ninety percent of the horror you see are merely projections from repressed traumatic experiences you had at birth and in the womb. Stop giving them energy by believing in them.

A good friend asked me, today: 

“I’m a little confused and no one close to homes seems to understand my take on this … I would appreciate yours.

“I have come across ideas that when we die, pass over, death, whatever one would call it, that we are met by false light and guides, etc, and tricked into being reincarnated back to earth … we keep recycling  to continue the slavery as energy, etc.

My response: 

first, don’t believe that stuff….

i know that of which i speak….. plus, many others have been where i’ve been and will tell you the same thing…. not to mention, the spiritual literature throughout the ages….

second, it is common as hell for folks to project their horrors onto the unknown … it is the most common thing in the world…

indeed, if there is one thing i want to share in my writing it is that i’ve found out that those negative, often horrific, views of life and the afterlife are not true in reality … indeed, they are rooted in traumatic events that we all experienced in the womb and at birth….

they are common fears, but they are not true in reality ….

third, i, myself, and others like me have found that those kinds of views go away as growth continues … the farther along one is, the more it is that Reality is seen as perfect and wonderful….

lastly, to get an idea of the way stuff like you mention happens, just take what you said and take away the idea that someone, some evil or dark entity, is doing that …. well, then it says nothing more than that some of us reincarnate and some of us don’t…. 

what is left out is that whatever happens to us is meant to happen to us…. and it is not like there is even an Other making these decisions … it is our higher self (or selves) and ultimately it is God…

my books, Experience Is Divinity and Funny God, and especially Falls from Grace, tell how and why that stuff happens … that is, why we have those horrific thoughts …. and what is actually true and real…. 

i recommend them to give you peace of mind… it is the peace of mind that i have that i wish to share, if at all possible, through my writing. though personal growth is the only corrective in the long run, my works can help to the extent that one can be helped by having a different conceptualization, a different  map of reality …. 

some people have told me they are helped in exactly that way … they feel more hopeful and less fearful and more optimistic when viewing reality through the lenses i provide … which explain everything … all the important things … but show how they are part of a divine plan, one which we can all surrender to and take comfort in….

On the brink of ecocide AND humanicide (the suicidal killing of our species) as we are, ought we not re-vision “man”kind’s vaunted “civilization”

“Will “Progress of Man” Be Humanity’s Epitaph?

“But all of these developments, these increases of control over Nature, are traditionally seen as the “progress of man,” the advance and evolution of humans. On the brink of ecocide and humanicide as we now are as a result of these developments, we have a unique vantage point for re-visioning these changes. Are these vaunted human “achievements” so great if they lead to species annihilation, species suicide, and ecocide as is becoming increasingly likely?…”

“We compete, we fight wars … because we learn to be so through a psychotic culture passed on from one generation to the next”: Wounded Deer and Centaurs


…on relationships, Sure It’s Hard….” to think that it is easy is probably to be an impostor (p. 134). He asserts that the people who are really making the changes in male-female relationships and becoming fuller human beings, you can expect, are struggling to do so . . . that it is a difficult process and takes time.”…. 


from the new book, Wounded Deer and Centaurs. an excerpt: ………

“Sure It’s Hard

“As most of us have come to realize who have been on this path for a while . . . who have been working at changing ourselves for a while . . . it is no easy task to change those very deep grids or programs. Rather, we discover that it requires a lot of work, dedication, and time.

“The Task Is Immense for Our Point of Departure Is a Psychotic Culture.

“The psychiatrist Theodore Isaac Rubin (1983), in his book on relationships titled One to One, points out that the divisive competitiveness and us-versus-them striving that we see predominating around us in Western culture is learned. He writes, “We compete, we fight wars, we are compulsively concerned about our hierarchical position relative to the next person, because we learn to be so through a psychotic culture passed on from one generation to the next” (p. 184).

“The point is that this is where we are coming from. Our point of departure is a psychotic culture or, as Erich Fromm (1955) put it, an “insane society.” Many of us are trying to reverse this violent and crazy trend, but it is understandable that it would be hard to make a 180-degree turn in orientation — from aggression to peace, from competition to cooperation, from fear to love. Therefore, our culture is gradually coming to the realization that we are involved in a difficult process, and understandably so. Our culture is starting to realize the immensity of the task we are undertaking in trying to change our inherited and deleterious patterns.

“To Think That It Is Easy Is Probably To Be an Impostor.”

“For example, Herb Goldberg (1983), a psychologist, points out in his book, The New Male-Female Relationship, especially in his section on “Transitions,” that to think that it is easy is probably to be an impostor (p. 134). He asserts that the people who are really making the changes in male-female relationships and becoming fuller human beings, you can expect, are struggling to do so . . . that it is a difficult process and takes time. In fact, Goldberg discusses at length his contention that real growth takes a lot of time and struggle, whereas “pseudo-growth” is the only kind of growing that occurs “overnight” and easily. (pp. 134-141)

“So not only does it take time, but we discover that it is hardly ever pleasurable. What most of us have discovered is that the path to bliss leads sometimes through despair and hopelessness. As Hesse (1965) described it in Demian: the bird, in pecking his way out of his shell, must destroy a world before discovering a new one. No, it is not often pleasant to confront some of the darkest things within ourselves, as we must do if we are not to continually project them onto others and onto the world around us…..
