On Saturday, Steve Carcano and I went to Topanga for a 12-hour holotropic breathwork experience. It was wild, to say the least. Holotropic breathwork is a tool for personal growth and exploration. It is intense and some people have likened their experiences with the breathwork as similar to their experiences with psychedelics. I haven’t had any psychedelic experiences, so I don’t have that frame of references. However, I found the whole event to be very cool. Each of us did a single breathing session that was 3 hours long, while the other person held space for and tended to the person breathing. Yep, three hours of intense breathwork non-stop. Weirdly, the time seemed to speed by and also drag on forever and also simultaneously not exist.
I drew some pictures afterward, in an attempt to catalog my experience. Nothing I drew made sense. I made some notes, too, but those are pretty jumbled. It has been 4 days and I am still journaling and processing the thoughts and feeling I experienced on Saturday. I wish I could explain more, but it really is one of those things that needs to be experienced to be understood.
