Greenhills Weekend Residential Retreat

Facilitators: Sharon Riva, Paul McCormack and Melinda Varfi.

The workshop opens on Thursday evening with registration at 6pm, followed by dinner, opening circle and Introductory talk for those who have not experienced Holotropic Breathwork before.

On Friday and Saturday there are 2 breathwork sessions (one time ‘breathing’ and one time ‘sitting’) so all participants have an opportunity to breathe twice, with time for artwork, sharing and support if needed.

We close on Sunday late morning with a closing circle and information on self-care and integration.

All meals are provided.
