The mission of the GROF® Legacy Project is to preserve and promote the pioneering work of Stanislav Grof, MD. Informed by sixty years of research, Grof’s understanding of the healing potential of ‘holotropic states of consciousness’ has great relevance across many academic, clinical, and scientific disciplines. The GROF® Legacy Project has been authorized by Stan and Brigitte Grof to carry his work forward in the United States.

is pleased to announce

The Healing Potential of
Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness:

The Legacy of Stanislav Grof

GROF® Breathwork Retreats

The GROF® Legacy Project will be offering four residential events in 2024 at Synergia Ranch outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. While open to the public, these GROF® Breathwork residential offerings are attracting many licensed professionals who are on the track to become psychedelic psychotherapists. Many have already completed certificate programs with other schools or organizations. Many express a need to have more hands on experience with people in expanded states. Many realize that they need a safe place to do their own inner work.

GROF® Breathwork has proven to be an excellent tool for those interested in better supporting work in non-ordinary states of consciousness. The skill set involves learning how to carefully prepare people for deep non-ordinary state work; how to create ethical, respectful, and safe settings; how to cultivate the naturally therapeutic presence critical for effective sitting or guiding; and how to provide skillful guidance related to the integrative process that follows a deep experience. All these skills have great relevance in relation to supporting those in psycho-spiritual crisis, the dying process, recovery from trauma or addiction, as well as preparing for work in the emerging field of psychedelic psychotherapy.

Residential GROF® Breathwork retreats at Synergia will offer both a theoretical and practical introduction to the work of Stanislav Grof, MD. They will be highly experiential. Using GROF® Breathwork as a therapeutic modality, participants will have two opportunities to experience the breathwork process and two opportunities to hold space for a partner.
