Right Set

Holotropic States can be accessed in many different ways. One of those is Holotropic breathwork™ a substance free technology developed by Stanislav and Christina Grof following Stan’s years of clinical research into the therapeutic use of LSD. They found that if the right set (mind-set, personality-set and biographical-set of the participant) and right setting (the therapeutic container of the experience) were in place then the Holotropic experience would be exponentially beneficial to the individual due to the inherent safety.

At Caledonian Holotropic we very much encourage and invite you to step into your sovereignty when considering adventuring in Holotropic States. This calls upon qualities such as honesty, integrity, accountability and authenticity. It also calls for an inner inquiry and you will serve yourself well by asking the following:


What is my intention for doing this work?

Is the method I am choosing the right one for this point in time in my personal/spiritual development?

Have I researched sufficiently the facilitator for my chosen method and can I trust them?

Do I get a sense that the facilitator knows their own limits?

Do I have the right support in place for when I return?

Do I have a committed daily spiritual practice that keeps me grounded and centred?

Do I have the tools to practice an inner inquiry?


Am I choosing the most appropriate method for entering a Holotropic State for my personality? – Depending on your personality traits you may feel comfortable jumping in at the deep end. For others a slower immersion may be needed. Certain personality traits may be contra-indicated for some methods of entering into the Holotropic State.


Am I choosing the most appropriate method for entering a Holotropic State for my biography? – Your life’s journey may have thrown up situations that, for eample, have left you in a place where it is difficult to let go of control and you may want to consider a method that still leaves you with an element of control to make it that bit safer for you.

At Caledonian Holotropic safety is our top priority. Our team have had years of self-exploration in Holotropic states as well as going through a rigourous training and certification with various training bodies. We love this work and we love holding a safe space to allow you to go as deep as you need.

We look forward to welcoming and accompanying you on your Holotropic Adventure.
