Education & advocacy

An important activity of ours is the advocacy and public education. We organize lectures, seminars and conferences for laic and expert audience. From 2014 we regularly organize the program of Stanislav Grof in the Czech Republic and in Poland.

 

We are the organizers of the first Czech transpersonal conference (2016) and The International Transpersonal Conference (2017), which were created as the result of the Holos platform of Transpersonal forum.

We are also a publisher and movie producer. We publish mainly the books of Stanislav Grof, but also of other significant authors. We shot documentary movies Holotropic breathwork in wate and From Darkness of the Soul... Light.

From Darkness of the Soul... Light.

For public education and awareness about the topic of spiritual emergency, we have made a documentary movie in collaboration with Viliam Poltikovič called From Darkness of the Soul... Light. It is possible to buy the international version of the movie online via Vimeo.

Holotropic breathwork in water

MUDr. Milan Hrabánek is certified holotropic breathwork facilitator, direct student of Stanislav Grof with many years of practices. He continues to develop this technique and he is perhaps the first in the world to come with holotropic breathwork in water, which he successfully practices for many consecutive years. As the experience of MUDr. Hrabánek has showed, the water environment enables even deeper holotropic process, including the material of perinatal matrices and transpersonal experience. In 2013 the Holos association shot a documentary movie about this technique.

The documentary movie brings to laic and expert audiences the authentic footage of a holotropic breathwork seminar in water, which happened in Metylovice in April 2013 during the International day of holotropic breathwork. The documentary movie was made by the Holos association in collaboration with a student of graphics Aleš Orlík.

This document is the first of its kind in the world in representing this unique therapeutic method, which has great potential not only in self-exploration, but also for treatment of mental issues, especially then for spiritual emergency. The purpose of the movie is to show the meaning of this technique and its positive effects on mental health. Meanwhile, it is also aims at starting a social discourse about the approach of Czech psychiatry towards transpersonal psychology, holotropic breathwork as healing techniques and spiritual emergency.

We are translating Stansilav Grof's The Way of the Psychonaut volume One and Two to Czech.

Encyclopedia for inner journeys.

The Way of the Psychonaut is one of the most important books about the human psyché and the spiritual quest. Written at the beautiful peak of his career, it most likely the greatest contribution of Stanislav Grof. The width and depth of his knowledge is astonishing, the tone of his writing is easy and accessible and his stories are enriched by entertainng anecdotes, interesting personal experiences and brilliant proceeding studies.

It will be released in spring 2020.

We are translating Stanislav Grof's LSD psychotherapy to Czech

The book is a valuable source of information for anyone, who got in any kind of contact with LSD - parents, teachers, researchers, lawmakers or students of the human psyché. The healing approach described in this book is inspired by the ageless human desire for wholeness and constant understanding of reality.

It will be released in 2020.

Publisher Holos, 2017.

Pozitivní poselství D. Grofa o univerzální spiritualitě, zabudované v našem mozku a odkrývané během mystických psychedelických stavů vědomí, by mělo být dnes na titulních stránkách našich zpráv.

V této nové knize Stanislav Grof ukazuje, jak umělci-vizionáři ztvárňují ve svém umění současné porodní trauma světové duše; tím, že se s námi dělí o své objevy z výzkumu vědomí, vytváří nový kontext pro nahlížení a docenění vizionářského umění v jeho schopnosti nás probouzet.

Kniha je opět skladem! 

Holotropní dýchání
Stanislav a Christina Grofovi

Stanislav a Christina Grofovi v této již dlouho očekávané knize podrobně popisují svoji metodu holotropního dýchání, která představuje zásadní průlom v oblasti psychoterapie a sebezkoumání. Výraz holotropní doslovně znamená „směřující k celistvosti“ (z řeckého holos – celek a trepein – pohybovat se směrem k něčemu). Holotropní dýchání ve své praxi využívá pozoruhodně léčivého a transformačního potenciálu změněných stavů vědomí, jež vyvolávají širokou škálu prožitků, která skýtá jedinečné terapeutické možnosti v podobě znovuprožití vzpomínek z dětství, novorozeneckého období, jednotlivých fází porodu a prenatálního života a také různé prvky z historických a archetypálních oblastí kolektivního nevědomí.
