Free the body to free the psyche: breathwork and empathogens

13th – 16th of May, 2022

Empathogens or entactogens are psychoactive substances that enhance the feeling of empathy and are indicated for the treatment of post-traumatic stress. The best known empathogenic substance is MDMA or ecstasy.

This retreat is designed for any healthy person who wants to unblock deep-seated emotions and traumas in the body. The holotropic breathing technique is a way of getting in touch with the psychedelic experience induced by breathwork and music. It is an equally intense experience in which we release a lot of emotional charge. The next experience will be a group session under the influence of an empathogen to step into the depths of the shadow with the support of the group and surrender to the experience of empathy.

In these experiences we will put at your disposal all the necessary tools so that you can contact your internal healer and thus regain alignment with your true self, your natural rhythms and those of nature.

The empathogen substance will be used optionally in conjunction with a daily program of activities:
