The Mind - Body Connection


What is Pneuma Trance®?​

In the pursuit of healing through practices like holotropic breathwork and meditation, the common associations often involve images of Buddha, Tibet, and India, along with concepts like mudras and mantras. However, Pneuma Trance® seeks to redefine breathwork as a natural and normal human process, devoid of specific postures, terminology, or unfamiliar terms. Grounded in the principles of Holotropic Breathwork established by Stanislav and Christina Grof in 1989, this approach emphasizes recognizing, accessing, and supporting the intelligence and inner healing impulse within each individual. It integrates ideas from psychedelia, research, anthropology, depth psychology, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and world mystical traditions.

Pneuma Trance® takes a step further by incorporating Holotropic and Rebirthing Breathwork with hypnotherapy. This unique combination serves as a potent tool for healing and self-exploration, aiming to facilitate access to deep consciousness. The synergy of holotropic breathwork and hypnotherapy enables the release of repressed emotions and the reprogramming of misunderstood memories, particularly those rooted in early life experiences. These memories, often inaccessible due to the nature of childhood or protective mental blocks, impact individuals in ways that may go unrecognized. The integration of these techniques seeks to break through these limitations and promote personal growth and understanding.

To work with the Pneuma Trance® method, it is necessary to combine these two techniques, putting into practice the following steps:


1. **Introduction and Preparation:** Begin the session by explaining the participants what they can expect from Pneuma Trance®. This stage can include hypnotic inductions, relaxation exercises and meditation to prepare the body and mind.


2. **Breathwork session:** Guide your clients through a breathwork session. This involves rapid, deep breathing, usually accompanied by evocative music, which can facilitate a state of expanded consciousness.


3. **Hypnotherapy:** After Breathwork session, when clients are in an altered state of consciousness, the hypnotherapy portion of the session can begin. During this stage, you can work with them to explore repressed memories, patterns of thought and behavior, and use hypnotic suggestions to promote healing and change.


4. **Integration:** Finally, we let you relax to integrate your experiences, resting and reflecting in silence.


Each session is personalized according to the needs of each person or persons participating. Is recommended that clients consult a mental health professional before engaging in these practices, especially if they have a history of mental illness.

It is important to remember that Pneuma Trance® and Hypnotherapy are powerful techniques that must be facilitated by trained professionals
