International transpersonal center Holos
International Transpersonal Center Holos provides safe environment and accomodation for people going through spiritual emergency and other crisis situations. We use and develop methods of transpersonal psychology such as Holotropic breathing, sandplay, art therapy, music therapy and many others. We work under the supervision of Stanislav Grof.
We aren´t supported by government and contributions mean important important source of income for us.

Our current goals
1. We are working on the creation of the first psychotherapeutic training for transpersonal psychotherapy, which should be accredited by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. We plan to launch it in autumn 2020 with Stan Grof. We want to increase the availability of transpersonal psychotherapy by its involvement in the public health insurance reimbursement system in the Czech Republic.
2. To launch the training it is necessary to complete the accommodation capacities in the Holos Center building. We need 60 000 EUR to carry out the necessary construction work.
3. As an additional space for training and therapy, we need to complete the water pavilion of the Holos Center, where will be located a special pool and relaxation area with saunas. The pool is needed for the therapeutic technique of holotropic breathing in water (see our documentary film!), which is very effective for the treatment of mental problems caused by birth trauma. It is the trauma experienced during birth with complications or caesarean section, which is the cause of many mental illnesses in childhood and adulthood. Holotropic breathing in the aquatic environment makes the experiences of birth trauma more accessible and speeds up the recovery of both children and adults.
The necessary amount of money for the completion of accommodation and water pavilion is 675 000 EUR.
4. Upon completion, the Holos Center will become an exemplary workplace that can be created in other locations in the Czech Republic and whole world. At the same time, it will also be a training center and will thus achieve a large-scale improvement of mental health care.
Support International Transpersonal Center Holos for 2020
Dear friends, supporters of transpersonal psychology,
another year has passed, but when we look back, we can see a lot of work helping our clients, and we think a responsible approach to everything we do. None of this would be possible without your support. We would like to thank you through this letter for the whole year that we have been working together to help people with various mental health problems, spiritual emergency, children and whole families. But also for everything that has led to the rise of our consciousness and awareness of mental health, interpersonal relationships and the development of our personalities.
Soon the New Year will knock on the door and we already know that it will be very challenging year. New possibilities are opening up, which are related to the overall renaissance of mental health care - the rise of the field of transpersonal psychology, psychedelic therapy, and many other therapeutic approaches. We want to continue to ride this wave next year, thus contributing both in the Czech Republic and in the Europe to the great transformation which is so much needed for our society.
We hope to receive your support next year, both from our current supporters and from those of you who have met us for the first time this year. We will be grateful for your support in a major project which will culminate next year in the visit of Stan Grof in our center. It´s his legacy that we try to develop day by day through our work in the Holos Center.
We will be grateful for any support, so that we can further expand the capacity of our Holos Center through construction works, material support, but also financial support, so that it is possible to employ and receive the best therapists and trainers not only from the Czech Republic to our center.
Thank you all for creating a future together for our children, for our planet, warm thanks for your support. Advent greetings from Vlaštovičky to you all!
