Open Up is a growing community of people inspired to have courageous explorations, conversations and learnings with breathwork at the core, in a holistic approach for inner growth and self-healing.
We exist to create and co-create dynamic spaces for collaborative learning in action, and
hope to support and challenge individual and societal change through finding new ways of doing, sensing, and being.
We want to generate and give access to be and become part of the change we are in. Our mission is to share wisdom in a wider vision through mutual learning experiences that fosters our connection and can enhance our sense-making capacities and responsibility for living a life of more meaning, integrity and beauty. Welcome!
We are dedicated to the evolution of consciousness and invite people to uncover their truth and wake up to the workings of life in the shadows in order to come into their power and presence.
We encompasses a range of therapeutic best practices at the intersection of psychotherapy, neuroscience and spirituality, and explore the the nature and transformational effects of breathwork as therapy, Holotropic Breathwork in combination with inquiry, meditation, and other developed breathing techniques.
We hope to support deeply meaningful
changes in people's lives and in society, and encourage an educational and experiential approach in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and discoveries for a mutual growth, understanding, and enrichment.
Open Up breathwork is a method of self-exploration and psychotherapy that takes people far beyond traditional cognitive therapies.
In individual and collective experiences we expand and open through utilising the breath and inner system, and activate the natural inner healing intelligence and process of the psyche, bringing you in a particular set of internal experiences.
With the inner healing intelligence guiding, the quality and content brought forth are unique to each person in that particular time and place. It can be both liberating and exhilarating, but also challenging and is held within safety and guidance to move beyond intellectual understanding to an embodied place of deeper knowing.
