We will give a refund - less a $100 administrative fee up until 2 1/2 weeks before the workshop start day. After that date there will not be any refunds issued.
12 - Why do I need eye shades and what type are best to use?
This is an inner journey and eye shades help us to stay inward minimizing external distractions. Bring eye shades or a scarf that you can tie around your head. Sometimes we can experience active breathworks so bringing something that covers your eyes and fits fairly securely on your head. The little ones from airplanes for example do not tend to offer the comfort and shielding that people need.
13 - Why is it important to attend one of the introductory talks and what if I am unable to attend …can I still attend the workshop?
The introductory preparation calls are an important part of this work especially if you have not experienced Grof® Breathwork or journeyed inward into holotropic states of consciousness with other modalities. Just like we prepare our bodies if we are going on a hike or running a marathon, it is important to prepare our psyches for what may arise in these deep journeys. Having some understanding of Stanislav Grof’s cartography of the psyche and where you may go helps to create psychological safety and so you are not traumatized or frightened when you experience something that does not ‘fit into’ your understanding and regular conscious states of mind. We will provide a link to an older video recording of this introductory talk which we recommend you watch if you are unable to attend the live zoom call. Or perhaps you may want to listen to or attend both :-).
