Dimensional Breathwork (DB), was inspired by different types of breathwork modalities and specifically from Holotropic Breathwork. DB is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing which integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, psychotherapy techniques such as EMDR and hypnotherapy, eastern spiritual practices and mystical traditions of the world.
The process itself uses very simple means: It combines accelerated breathing with evocative music in a special set and setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to enter an expanded state of consciousness. This state activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process, the quality and content brought forth are unique to each person and for that particular time and place. While recurring themes are common, no two sessions are ever alike. Additional elements of the process include focused bodywork, self regressions, eye movement processing and desensitizing, circle sharings, grounding meditations and mandala drawings. DB is conducted in groups and individually. Within the groups, people work in pairs and alternate in the roles of “breather” and “sitter”. The sitter’s role is simply to be available to assist the breather, not to interfere or interrupt the process. The same is true for trained facilitators who are available to assist upon request or if deemed necessary. When conducted individually, DB is used as an effective, holistic, therapeutical and healing method consisting of 6 phases which are continuously guided by the inner healing’s intelligence and which can be taught in a classroom setting. After the successful completion of the course, the student becomes a Dimensional Breathwork Practitioner and may continue his/her apprenticeship and apply for the Dimensional Awareness Process Certification Program to become a facilitator in order to assist and conduct group breathworks.
