|Beth Morris, B.A., Adler Certified Trauma Therapist, began her amazing breath- work journey in 1991 with Stan Grof, which was a seminal life experience for her. Breathwork changed her life's direction on the deepest level and satisfied her lifelong search for the inexplicable. In the breath, below the story and the emotional upheaval, she encountered the silence, the peace and the true Self for which she had thirsted her entire life. This solid base became the foundation of her work with others.
Beth has facilitated breathwork workshops for many years in Canada and the United States. In addition to Shiatsu, she has studied many body therapies, all of which are integrated into her workshops. She lives in Victoria, BC and she and her partner, Jim, are devotees of their beloved teacher, Gangaji. She is a delirious lover of Rumi, a member of two classical choirs, an avid walker, animal lover, and a rock and roll drummer.
Helena Benda is a certified
Holotropic Breathwork practitioner trained by Dr. Stanislav Grof. She
was born in Czechoslovakia, left for the West in 1968 where she,
together with her husband, reared two children, and now has a
granddaughter. She studied at the Charles University in Prague
and later, even during her many years as a businesswoman in Seattle,
has not stopped learning amazing stuff. She first learned of
Stan Grof and his work in the late 1990's. Helena considers Stan
Grof to be an extraordinary teacher because of his unwavering
deference to each person's own inner teacher.
Michael Stone is a certified Holotropic Breathwork facilitator who was originally educated in the sciences and business. Despite success in those endeavors, he felt a lack of meaning in his life, and decided to leave it all behind and devote himself to a path of spiritual growth. This led him through studies in Holotropic Breathwork, Meditation, and Shamanism. Each of these has impacted him in unique ways, and ultimately, helped him find the answers he's been seeking. In retrospect, he feels tremendously grateful for the profound changes he has experienced in himself. He wakes up each day with a feeling of gratefulness for all the blessings he's received and for what the new day will bring. These experiences have inspired him to give back to others. In addition to certifying in Stanislav Grof's training program he is a Certified Massage Therapist, a Shamanic Practitioner, a Meditation Teacher, and a Tantra student and teacher.
