Healing the world from the inside out

Welcome to the Breathwork Northwest website — we’re glad you’re here! We’re a 501(c3) nonprofit offering official Stan Grof Holotropic Breathwork workshops and overnight retreats on a regular basis, primarily in Seattle and Bellingham.  View schedule

Holotropic Breathwork™ is a powerful method which uses the power of the breath combined with music to help you “loosen” your day-to-day verbal, thinking mind and access your authentic self and intuitive wisdom. It has been called “post-modern industrial strength meditation,” and is used for a variety of intentions, including self-exploration, personal transformation, and healing from old trauma and wounds. It is also an efficient method of self-care for those working in the healing professions.

Holotropic Breathing is based on insights from modern consciousness research, depth psychology, Eastern perspectives & various spiritual practices. It was developed by Stanislav Grof, M.D. & Christina Grof, pioneers in the field of transpersonal psychology. All of our facilitators go through a minimum two-year experiential training which includes nine full weeks of residential experience. Glenn Girlando, Breathwork Northwest’s president, is also our lead facilitator and has been offering Holotropic seminars in the Seattle area since 2002.
